    Purdue killed me. I had them making the Elite 8 and upsetting UVA. They played so well at the end of the season just to choke in round 1. Smh

    Butler won. Like why would you pick against them given recent tourney success?
    I almost picked Purdue's opponent but ended up putting Purdue in the sweet sixteen. Some of the seeds certain teams got (like Baylor) were a joke

    meh
    floyd would beat him worse a 2nd time
    possibly knock him out
    was never a mayweather fan and always liked pacquiao
    but credit where credit's due...
    floyd is that good
    and why would floyd take the fight?
    sure he'd be a huge favorite
    but there's always a chance he could get caught
    (a minuscule chance i this case, but a chance nonetheless)
    plus it's not like "money" needs the money
    do us all a favor floyd, just say no
    and manny... it wasn't your [alleged] bum shoulder that lost you the fight

    Floyd Sr.: Mayweather/Pacquiao rematch possible
    by Gianni Verschueren | Bleacher Report — 6 hours ago

    It seems Floyd Mayweather Sr., the father of former pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr., has told Manny Pacquiao the door is open to a rematch with his son.

    The two went head-to-head in 2015 in one of the most anticipated boxing matches of the decade, and the undefeated Mayweather Jr. came away with a routine unanimous-decision win.

    Mayweather Sr. said Pacquiao wants another shot at Money and a fight could come to fruition. He told Jenna J. of On The Ropes Boxing Radio:

    "I can’t really say what he’s going to do because I’m not him. The thing of it is, they keep talking about Pacquiao wanting to fight, and Danny Garcia might want to fight Floyd. Pacquiao wants to do it again, for what does he want to do it? No one knows. The only thing good there is Floyd’s gonna whoop his ass where he can get enough money to go about his business and sit his ass down somewhere. That’s a real simple fight for Floyd. It’s been a long time coming and it came, and when it came, Pacquiao got it. And guess what? Pacquiao can get it again."

    Mayweather Jr. retired after recording his 49th win in September of last year, beating Andre Berto by unanimous decision. His record of 49 wins from 49 bouts tied him with former heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano, per Steve Bunce of the Independent, so it's easy to believe he might return to the ring in order to gain sole possession of the mark.

    Given the pair's history—Pacquiao and Mayweather Jr. dominated the pound-for-pound rankings for years but kept fans waiting for their superfight—the Filipino slugger would make for an ideal opponent, and Pac-Man may be interested in another chance.

    As reported by Sports Illustrated, he told reporters he fought with an injured shoulder during their first meeting, explaining why he couldn't land any real power shots or get in range to take the fight inside.

    Instead, fans were treated to a dull affair, with Mayweather Jr. controlling the distance with his jab and scoring enough points with a few big countershots.

    With the exception of those who believe Pacquiao would beat Mayweather Jr. with a healthy shoulder, most boxing fans don't really want to see the two veterans go at it one more time.

    That doesn't mean fans wouldn't buy the fight—Money and Pac-Man remain two of the biggest stars in the sport, and given the hype machine both have behind them, the fight would likely be another gold mine for the duo.

    However, Mayweather Jr. seems to be enjoying his retirement. His Instagram page is filled with photos of him flaunting his wealth, including this shot of him sitting on the steps of his private jet:

    Mayweather Jr.'s legacy likely won't depend on whether he gets that 50th win, and with every passing day, the chances of a comeback grow slimmer. Finding the right opponent would be one thing, but finding the proper motivation to fight again will be far more important.

    It seems even Money's father doesn't know what his son's plans for the future are, but if anybody can tempt him back into the ring, you suspect it'll be Pacquiao.​

    USC with a choke for the ages. UNC would have raped them anyways.

    Bricked FTs, missed dunk, and then a wide open layup with 3 seconds remaining after failing to rebound. It's as if USC had a bet on Providence.

    With MSU, Baylor, and Cal gone....never mind. If Oregon loses, the only thing left to do is root against Duke.

    After all the good moments this year for USC Basketball..... that was FUCKING EMBARRASSING..... worst 2:30 minute stretch I've ever seen in my life.

    Fucking sick to my stomach.

    Well at least we're back on the map. Next year's team could legit be the best team in USC basketball history. But man this loss is going to be tough to get over.

    At least you got there! I guess Alford is still on the job.

    On a much happier not for me, the Kings are #2 in the conference and now hold a 6 point lead over the Ducks. Have to take advantage of this stretch where we play the Ducks opponents the night after they do. GKG!!!

    Tray Walker of the Ravens died today.

    Man, he was riding a dirt bike on a road at 7:00 PM at night. The bike has no headlights, and he was wearing dark clothing with no helmet. Then he gets hit in an intersection by an SUV.

    It's bad enough to die so young with a career ahead of you, but to make so many mistakes in doing so. A shame.

    Very sad, unfortunately, shit like that happens. Certainly not going to blame the victim or he person who hit him. Just a tragic accident. Also, it's still light outside at 7 pm now.

    Not blame, but riding without a helmet is not a good move under any circumstances.

    Lol at Tom Izzo. All this Mr. March talk and he hasn't won a title since 2000. Yeah, he's had deep runs, but it was annoying hearing about how great he is this time of year when he fails to win the 1 thing that truly matters. I picked UNC to win it all so I fully expect Providence to beat them tomorrow.

    i like izzo
    seems like a good guy to play for and his players love him
    but yeah, when i began hearing all the "one more tourney win to tie john wooden" rhetoric it was a bit much
    as for msu, upsets happen
    usually not this big, especially in the first round, but it was bound to happen to someone sooner or later
    its one of the things that makes march madness so great
    and there's always an austin peay/weber state/yale ready to step up and [for one night] be giant killers
