Not everybody's enamored of LA LA Land. Smog, illegals, high cost of living, liberal mind set, effete snobs, and unrealistic expectaions of being a national power house in all sports. UCLA is yesterday. Lew Alcindor doesn't still have his "sky hook".

Can't really blame him, as it's a mystery as to what they expect......they just fired Holland, after they won the PAC-12 title.....

I was sorry to see Ohio State win. I'm a Big Ten guy but can't bring myself to root for the Buckeyes. Just the sight of Thad Motta and that Kraft kid makes my skin crawl.

Enrollment at FGC is going to skyrocket after the news reports they've done highlighting their private beach with bikini-clad coeds! I know their bookstores can't stock enough fan wear. Those players have got to be loving it.

Wow, your niece was an MSU grad, Go Blue?? Must be a volatile moment or two around the Thanksgiving table! I've heard of people disowning their kin over that rivalry.

No, not at all....she was a cheerleader there too....we just met them at Lion Country Safari down here, saw her two small ones for the first time.....another had a full scholorship to UM for cross-country/track....I also find, as i get older, all the rivalry BS, kinda fades and i just like a good game....Much as i dislike Ohio State, that final shot was like something from, Hoosiers..........

I'd written UofM off until "Mr 3 Point Machine" showed up! I'm sure you blew the roof off your doublewide, Go Blue :)

Wish the Spartans had been able to out, but they came out flat and standing around - never really came back.

Good luck to your team from here on out. My brackets were shot to pieces long ago.
