Dog Fest in the 2006 NCAA Tourney

Did anyone else notice how well the dogs are doing in this years tournament. All four dogs covered in the round of 8, and 6 out of 8 covered in the round of 16. If you would have blindly put your money on the dogs you would have been right in the last 10/12 games played. I guess parity is here in the mens college basketball. I would imagine that most peoples brackets are fucked at this point with no number one seeds making it to the final four. Pathetic!

I wish people would stop saying that the George Mason's victory should go down as the biggest upset ever in the tournament. That's BS! George Mason is a very good team (though not very deep), and Conneticut was way over rated. You don't need to be that deep in televised tournament games because all the TV timouts lets your starters rest. I think GM went with the same 5 players for the last 12 minutes of regulation. If GM was so overmatched, you would think that Conneticut would have taken them out easy in overtime, after ripping there hearts out on the last second tying reverse lay-up. Not to happen. GM kept playing their game in OT and took care of an over rated Conneticut team who could not beat an 11 seed.

Who do I like to win it all? Florida. They have looked the best all the what through. I don't think it will be a cakewalk against GM, but I think they will get through and beat UCLA in the finals. Bet on it!

14-seed Austin Peay's lone NCAA Tourney victory came at the expense of then 11th-ranked Illinois in 1987. Much bigger upset.

That's one example of dozens.
