Big East Tourney

It's that time of year again. Time for the best basketball conference to have its tournament. Which means it is time for me to make some picks and get pretty much every one wrong.

First Round

USF (9) vs DePaul (16) - DePaul doesn't suck quite as bad as you would think the last place in the league would, but they suck enough to lose this game. USF moves on.

UConn (12) vs St. John's (13) - How in the world did UConn finish 12th? Well they lost a lot of games they should not have. Expect them to make a decent tourney run, they are better than 12th. UConn moves on.

Seton Hall (10) vs Providence (15) - Seton Hall rolled Providence at Providence. Seton Hall is a little better than you'd think. Seton Hall moves on.

Cincinnati (11) vs Rutgers (14) - Kenyon Martin isn't walking through that door, but it doesn't matter. Cincinnati will win anyway.

Second Round

USF (9) vs Georgetown (8) - I didn't pick any upsets in the first round so I really want to pick one now. But I won't. G'Town has their diabetes guy back and he is good. I have no clue why diabetes made him miss a game. Was he about to lose a leg? Anyway, G'town moves on.

UConn (12) vs Marquette (5) - I can't wait any longer, gotta pick an upset so I am doing it here. That's all the juice UConn will have though. They'll be spent after this one and still on the bubble for the big dance. UConn wins.

Seton Hall (10) vs Notre Dame (7) - The winner of this game migh punch their ticket to the big dance. I have a feeling that a rested up Notre Dame team will be a little too much for Seton Hall. Enjoy the NIT Seton Hall, Notre Dame moves on.

Cincinnati (11) vs Louisville (6) - Louisville has a ton of momentum after knocking off Cuse. They'll put it to horrible use and barely beat Cincinnati. Edgar Sosa is in his 10th year right now so he has the experience to pull through at the end. Louisville moves on.

Quarterfinals

Georgetown (8) vs Syracuse (1) - 'Cuse will destroy whoever they play here, they are gonna be a bit mad after their last loss. Syracuse moves on.

UConn (12) vs Villanova (4) - 'Nova will send UConn packing. People will argue for a couple days about whether or not UConn belongs in the big tourney. 'Nova moves on.

Notre Dame (7) vs Pitt (2) - Pitt is ripe for an upset here. Why? I don't know. Probably because I dislike Pitt. I think my Pitt hate is blinding me. I'll go with Pitt for the win.

Louisville (6) vs West Virgina (3) - WVU should win this game. Which means they will go behind by more than 10 points and then come back. I hope their comeback is enough because I am picking them to win. WVU moves on.

Semis

Syracuse (1) vs Villanova (4) - I have the top 4 teams in the semifinals. I doubt that will really happen. But we all knew my picks were gonna be wrong anyway. Syracuse wins this one.

Pittsburgh (2) vs West Virginia (3) - WVU beat them once and should have beat them again, but didn't. I refuse to pick Pitt over WVU though. WVU wins.

Finals

Syracuse (1) vs West Virginia (3) - I'll go with the complete homer pick. WVU wins!


OK that post took a lot longer to type than I thought it would. I wonder if I will even get 2 games right today....

if i wrote it i'd say cuse and if steve wrote it he'd say duke

Beth said...

Steve may be "special" but I bet he knows Duke isn't in the Big East.

Jugdish said...

I think the Bulls take the east...easily. then they play for the cup!

El Pad said...

that's the point, he'd write them in anyway

Jugdish said...

why can't they just put it in neutral and brake from there?

Steve said...

"why can't they just put it in neutral and brake from there?"

all they have to do is kill the engine.

i get it, if somebody is pulling up to an intersection or railroad crossing, but on an interstate...give me break

Steve said...

Duke will find a way to win the big east, winners win.

I wish he was my dad said...

Lindsay Lohan is reportedly suing the financial company E-Trade, insisting that the company's new commercial about a boyfriend-stealing, "milkaholic" baby -- who happens to be named Lindsay -- was modeled after her. Lohan reportedly wants $100 million, The NY Post reports. Lohan's lawyer, Stephanie Ovadia, told the newspaper that the actress has the same single-name recognition as Oprah or Madonna. "Many celebrities are known by one name only, and E-Trade is using that knowledge to profit," Ovadia said.

-I hope Lindsey's lawyer gets sanctioned for filing this bullshit (ns)

I wish he was my dad said...

The argument that "Lindsey" clearly must refer to Lohan is we todd did. I don't know many people whose first names are Oprah, or Cher....I do know quite a few Lindseys though

I wish he was my dad said...

"cue tem

you shave your nose?"

that's be an as. saying.

tem said...

"Tem picks WVU to win? Shocking!

eteo"

didn't want to, but i did anyway.

tem said...

it is a triple reverse jinx.

i don't think they will win, but what i think usually is wrong and what i pick is wrong regardless of what i think, so if i don't think they will win, but pick them anyway, the things will cancel out and they will win.

or duke will.

tem said...

"-I hope Lindsey's lawyer gets sanctioned for filing this bullshit (ns)"


the best part is that you spelt her name wrong in your comment.

that's how well she is recognized.

tem said...

'Lindsay' Vonn disagrees.

tem said...

aja there are not too many famous people with the name spelt like "Lindsay."

Steve said...

she should just do porn and get it over with.

"Remember those plastic Zebra guns that come with the yellow pellets and were great for shooting people during study hall? Well, a rookie cop mistook a painted one of those for a real weapon and shot a 22-year-old man dead in Brooklyn after he allegedly pointed it at him and refused to drop it."

shit looks real, fuck em

tem said...

"shit looks real, fuck em"

pretty much. pointing a fake gun at a cop is dumb.

not dropping the fake dumb when a cop asks you too is dumber.

Meiz said...

Where did you see that Nathan actually HAD the surgery, LP?

I heard he said he's willing to pitch in pain less than an hour ago.

tem said...

also i am SAS that the cop hit his target and killed his target.

cops are usually terrible shots.

El Pad said...

"Where did you see that Nathan actually HAD the surgery, LP?"

good question. i see just a reported tear. no decision on surgery yet.

yes

El Pad said...

"Where did you see that Nathan actually HAD the surgery, LP?"

did i say HAD, didnt mean too

rockies have similar problems as the Twins will have...what you'll see (after this season) is very few home games in April, and a ton in the summer months, and then few in september...

Former Milwaukee Archbishop Timothy Dolan made a joke about the Mets. Perhaps showing the depth of his faith, Bishop yesterday told New York Mets fans to hold out hope.Asked how he kept his faith rooting for the Milwaukee Brewers, Dolan cracked: "Did you ever hear of St. Jude, the patron saint of impossible causes? Now we've got the Mets."

Meiz said...

Eat shit, losers.

El Pad said...

In her 111 years, Jane Gilsenan, known as Jenny to friends, lived through the Depression, saw her brothers fight in WWII and—most amazingly—paid $16/ month in rent on the Upper West Side! Aging experts are baffled by Gilsenan and her fellow centenarians. One said she “inherited a lucky set of genes” just like her mother who lived to be 99 and her older sister who died at 102. Besides daily doses of vitamins A and D and the occasional glass of cream sherry, Gilsenan denied having any aging secrets. "I have none, and I wouldn't give them away because I wouldn't wish it on anybody,"

Oh absolutely, but LAD could have been an 18 track single disc and then could be in the discussion for greatest album of all time.

I'm not saying LAD isn't an all-time classic, just that the 2nd disc strikes me as being too trendy.
