Fuck Georgetown, seriously. Since making the Final Four in 2007, here are the teams that have knocked them out: Davidson, Ohio, VCU, NC State and now they're getting embarrassed by Florida Gulf Coast every way possible.
They were not only the higher seed in all those games, in every year but one they were a #2 or #3 seed and all of their opponents were double digit seeds. For those scoring at home that's #14, #15, #11, #11 and #15 seeds they've lost to. Once is an occurrence, twice is a trend, five times is a fucking travesty.
And what do you with this weird conundrum of John Thompson III who has made Georgetown into a consistent power in the Big East but gets demonstrably outcoached every single year in the tournament? Guys are sloppy, undisciplined and completely outclassed by the energy and mental toughness of FGCU. if VCU embodies the personality of its coach, this sadly appears to be what one gets with JTIII.
I think I'm the only one that picked UCLA in the entire nation - because EVERYBODY was picking Minnesota.
I picked UCLA, simply because I couldn't bear to select them to go out in the first game. This is not surprising. What is surprising is that I'm currently watching the game with someone who picked UCLA to win the whole thing.
Howland has to get fired now, right?

VCU can be so frustrating to watch as a fan. They are either hot or cold, nothing in the middle. Missing last 8 shots against a good shooting team like Michigan is a death sentence. And most of them were open or easy.

VCU is always one of the chic teams promoted by the Worldwide Leader. Heck, earlier this year, I was advocating Michigan fire Bielein and go after Chaka Smart. This is such a beatdown I am quite surprised. Happily surprised.

Memphis freely allowing MSU to dictate the tempo of the game, as always seems to be the case when Pastner faces a defensive minded coach.
It's early yet but it looks like they're well on their way to being thrashed.

They've come back to make a game of it.
I really can't get a bead on Pastner yet. He is obviously a great recruiter, but his ability on the sideline is still up for debate for me.
