    No more "discussions" about Duke flopping and dropping this year. Congrats to Martin and the Gamecocks.

    I have to admit. I was a little bummed earlier when Cooper lost to their state title game nemesis BG, but after UK winning and UL and Duke losing, it made this day a bit more bearable.

    Duke did not have an easy draw this year. Their bracket was the second toughest, behind UK's.

    South Carolina lost at home to a Clemson team that finished 12th in the ACC. We can talk about their performance, but to doubt whether or not that league was the best through the regular season and earned its nine bids is foolishness.

    Agreed. It's absurd. And I loathe Duke.

    So how many had the SEC with three out of five teams in the Sweet 16?

    Come on FC. There is no way they had a tougher draw than UK. Duke didn't have that tough of a draw.

    Now SC is no push over, but many a week ago said Duke should have been a 1 seed. They should have won if they were that good.

    I knew it, I just knew it. This team was too up and down. Letting a team score almost 70 in the second half will not win games.

    That's a good point about playing in South Carolina. I guess they figured like about 99% of the country that it wouldn't matter anyway.

    I don't think anyone can say ACC wasn't the deepest conference. It is ironic how badly they did in this tourney.

    It's not worth the arguement.

    I'm sure it helped but Durham to Greenville isn't as far as you think.

    About a 100 miles farther.

    Don't try and bring solid reasoning to this discussion.
