    LeBron is so much fun to watch. Amazing someone that big can play at that level.

    I don't get many Clippers games (West Coast) and don't get many Cavalier games (because they suck). Watching Paul and Irving play is a treat.

    Missed most of the first half so I could watch the Walking Dead but I'm in for the second half.

    The good thing about the All Star game is that they don't have to pretend they call travelling. :lmao:

    Evening guys,

    Busy few days.

    Did see on ESPN.com that the Catholic 7 - DePaul, Georgetown, Marquette, Providence, St. John's, Seton Hall, and Villanova joined by Xavier and Butler will form a new league next year. Creighton may also be added. They are also expected to retain the Big East name and sign a TV deal with Fox.

    All things considered, a pretty good basketball conference. Not the same without Syracuse and U. Conn. but still decent.

    You forget that perennial Big East power, University of Louisville. :lmao:

    Looks like with all that TV money, they'll only have to raise tuition 10% to cover to costs. :sad2:

    My bad, forgot Louisville. In my mind they are already in the ACC.

    they weren't in the big east long enough to matter. I hate all this conference jumping. Hopefully, this new alignment will stay put.

    Is Louisville in KY?:rotfl2::rotfl2::lmao::lmao:

    Just shows it's really all about the almighty dollar and where schools think they can get the most. I still wish the conferences were the same as a few years ago before all the jumping around started.

    When BC made the decision to move our of the Big East, it was strictly a basketball/dollars decision. It killed their football program and they fell off the map. Yup, great decision. Let's finish middle of the pack every year and have no televised games.:headache:

    My favorite school to root for should now be #1 next week. Go ZAGS!:thumbsup2 Not sure why, but have always enjoyed watching them play. I guess it's the underdog thing.

    Most Kentuckians would vote to excommunicate Louisville. But, it provides the tax base for the most of the state.

    No... And I understand why. This is shaping up to be an interesting tournament and nobody wants to be that 1 that lost to a 16...

    Louisville vs. ND tonight. Sorry, need to root for ND. Pat Connoughton played at St. Johns with my nephew for high school. Glad to see he is doing well.

    I ain't watching if Notre Dame is wearing the same uniforms they had yesterday. My eyes are bleeding just from seeing the highlights.

    Root away, because you lost. And, I agree with Andy about the uniforms. :headache:

    Yes, those uniforms stand out. Good win by Louisville, good luck in the finals tonight.

    I think if they had Syracuse in Orange and ND in green, they could play the game in the dark and save on electricity.:rotfl2::rotfl2: Boy were they both bright.

    Maybe that is the new game plan. Blind your opponent with the uniforms.
