This tourny is officially nuts. Note to the production crew though. We don't want a little boy crying onscreen for 30 seconds. I'm sure there are some sad adults in the crowd.
Looked like he was vomiting. I agree. Keep it on the players. I don’t care for the altered post season production emphasizing fans, wives, etc. Quit looking for the next One Viral Moment.

I’ve been at opposite ends of the emotional spectrum as a fan. I was in Tampa for the Ohio game. It’s interesting to watch other fans endure the agony of defeat. The response seems so out of proportion for a mere game. But I’ve been there, and it stings like hell.
The irony.

Coach K must be a weak coach. Notice how his guys were firing threes when they should’ve been feeding Bagley.

MVC and Horizon have each sent more teams to the Final 4 since 2009 than the PAC 12.

Have the PAC 12 had any team in the Final Four since 2009?

CBSSports channel was ripping on the PAC 12's performance in this year's Dance, and cherry picked that stat to drive home their relative weakness in recent years.

The PAC had 13 players drafted in 2017, including 3 of the first 7 and 6 first rounders. Twelve international players were drafted, so the rest of college ball had 35. Not really an excuse for how pathetic they were in the tournament, but itt was quite a talent drain. Only 60 players were drafted.

They also lost one of their best freshman players, Charlie Moore, last year due to transfer to Kansas. I am sure Charlie Moore will be lighting up the big 12 next year.

These cavernous arenas are great for packing in tons of fans to watch really bad shooting percentages. So far, Loyola/Mich shooting is ugly.

Villanova disproved that hypothesis.

3 of the 4 shot well under 50%.

You ruling out any impact of depth perception in the big domes?

Nope. I’m saying that Villanova disproved your hypothesis. They had no trouble shooting in the dome.
