EVERYONE SEEMS TO FORGET THAT THE NIT WAS THE TOURNAMENT BEFORE THE NCAA HIGHJACKED IT. NOW WE HAVE COLLEGES IN FINANCIAL STRAITS KIDS; PLAYING ONE SEASON AND TURNING PRO; COACHES MAKING OBSCENE AMOUNT OF MONIES; AND THE MOST IMPORTANT PERSON ON CAMPUS IS THE ATHLETICE DIRECTOR. PEOPLE, THIS IS JUST A GAME AND IT, AND THE FOOTBAL EQUIVELANT, ARE WHY IT COST SO MUCH TO GO TO COLLEGE (AND LEARN NOTHING). STUDENT ATHLETE: WHAT A MISQUOTE.

Some school will drop all of its NCAA teams and play club sports. No scholarships, just fun. The very best academic institutions will be the first ones.

I feel the same way that you do; I figured Florida would take it all.

UCLA winning it 10 times in a 12 year period with "The Wizard of Westwood" in charge. We'll never see anything like that again.

The champion in 1966 was NOT UTEP! At that time we were Texas Western College! Please try to keep history in perspective.

All the jibber-jabber by the "experts" and it comes down to the two teams no-one predicted. Some experts!

They are only talking heads with an opinion. They claim to have ALL the insight when in reality, they are just guessing like you and me. Throw a dart at the brackets and go from there.

Dale Barnstable played on the 1948 and 1949 Champion Teams (University of Kentucky as a member of the Fabulous Five.) He is 89 years old and will be watching KY win tonight!!!

As an NC State fan, for me 1983 was the most exciting NCAA Men's Tournament. The way Kentucky is playing right now kind of reminds me of the 1983 NC State team; I hope the Wildcats continue to play for the "big win" tonight.

1966 was very significant. (UTEP) "Texas Western" - that name brings back memories of the first team of all-black starters taking the floor against Kentucky's all white starters in the brand new Cole Field at Maryland University.

Adolph Rupp and Pat Riley would never be the same. You could say it opened doors.
