Some random thoughts from the Wisconsin - Texas A&M Lite game:

1. Number of times Billy Packer said that Texas A&M Lite "didn't look like a 15 seed" in the first 10 minutes: 17.

2. Why isn't that Daniels guy for A&M Lite an NBA prospect? He's 7 foot, he can shoot from the outside, he has post moves, he makes his free throws...the only thing he doesn't have is stamina and conditioning. He was falling down by the end of the game.

3. Shocking that free throws would be the key to Wisconsin salting the game away in the second half. Tucker was especially effective.

4. The tide turned when Goldy, exasperated with the 25-7 lead that A&M Lite had built, went to get a couple of Shamrock Shakes from McDonald's in the first half. Wisconsin immediately went on a nice run. Also, I chucked my jinxed Wisconsin hooded sweatshirt into the other room. Stupid Kohl's sweatshirt.

5. That team sure didn't look like a 15 seed.

6. Suck it Sports Guy. Big 10 4-0 in the first round. [Update: Big 10 is 5-1 in the first round. Illinois choked away their game with Va Tech. Continue to suck it, Sports Guy.]

7. Jim Nantz's go-to stupid Badger story about Len Chappell playing with Billy Packer didn't come until there were only 8 minutes left in the game. Probably due to the fact that Jason Chappell was completely ineffective for the entire game.

8. The game was close enough late in the second half that we got to see the clips of all of the 2 seeds that lost to 15 seeds. Steve Nash's acne has sure cleared up since his Santa Clara days.

9. Cheer, cheer for good old Port High. State finals baby.
