GO I-L-L-I-N-I (non-bike related)!!!!

I know many of our forum members could care less about NCAA basketball, but as a big University of Illinois ILLINI fan I am truly pumped. The March to the Arch has begun.

Sorry, Hawkeye people, but you're down 32-22 at halftime as I write this post. Waaaaaaaa!

I'm a bad alumna... I just don't care about the final four. Never have, and never will. But hey- if you are for them, I hope your team wins!

I have not had much interest since The Ohio State University beat Illinois a few weeks ago.

Couldn't care less. This stuff pre-empted CSI. Call me when the Frozen Four is on.

Grrrrrr....well, thanks to OSU for putting the serious back into the Illini. And, Mr. NC, if NC manages to sputter into the title game be prepared for utter disappointment!

AND, to Mr. C-- fan, GO CARDINALS!!!

Can't stand Ill-annoy and their Ill-annoying fairweather, bandwagon jumping fans. The orange crush will get mismantled soon enough. Beware UW-M.

Sorry if you have the Ill-ness.

other than that, i have Okla St., Louisville, UNC & Duke in the final 4.

anyone catch the W Va - Wake game last night? wow.

I'm no fair weather Illini fan, to set the record straight! I have cheered loudly for them since I knew what a basketball was. Growing up in Central Illinois, the Illini and the St Louis Cardinals were all we had!

That W VA - Wake game was awesome -- except I had Wake going to the final four in my NCAA pool.

And Koffee, the Bulls do NOT suck! But I guess we'll let you stay.

As an Illini and current Bulls fan you probably still don't know what basketball is.

OOOoooooo, I hate it when I leave myself that wide open!

The Bulls have proved their mettle this year. They will be a final four team within two years! The Illini won't have to wait that long, more like one week!!

I love this time of year! I was wondering if there'd be a post about the NCAA's. I'm a big Duke University fan.

Can't wait til next weekend!

Obviously, I'm a big UNC fan. But every March, I'm an ACC fan, all the way.
Mom went to Wake, Dad went to State, I went to UNC, and I work at Duke!
This time of year is often quite exciting around here.

I think this years' tourney has been great so far. I've seen some really good games,
even in the ACC's first losses; West Virginia kicked a$$, and Louisville looked impressive.

I look forward to watching the Illinois and Washington games on Thursday,
but I think the Texas Tech/WVa game is going to be the one to watch.

Interesting fact this year: no teams from the state of Indiana?! Go figure...

Best team they've had in years... Hodge and Brackman are my faves.
Had the pleasure of taking my dad to the Dean Dome in February to watch them lose...
Perhaps we'll meet again in Syracuse...
Good Luck

YESSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!

Speaking of cardiac kids. That was one fantastic game if you are an Illini fan (sorry Lute..hated having to beat ya).

My 5 year old son and I were slapping high fives and screaming our heads off. Deron Williams, Dee Brown, and Luther Head ROCK. And it was nice to see Nick Smith sit his sorry tall butt on the pine all night.

By the way, even though there are no Indiana teams this year, I am psyched at the possibility of three Big Ten teams in the Final Four. And to think I thought the Big Ten sucked this year!
