Ok, so tonight is the big Texas vs Texas A&M rematch. I've never seen nor heard of Austin being this fired up for a basketball game (and i went to school here for 6 years). For the uninitiated, Texas has a freshman forward named Kevin Durant, who, when all is said and done, has a ceiling that really cannot be stated. He's absolutely ceiling-less. Think Kobe & Lebron type of talent (possibly). The catch is, he's a 99.999% probability to go to the NBA as one of the top 2 picks in next year's draft, so the city of Austin is relishing what could quite well be the last home game of his career. Making the game more dramatic is that Texas is playing its nemesis, a Texas A&M team that also happens to be ranked 6th in the country. There are a couple certainties tonight, and a couple intriguing possibilities:

1) I WILL be developing a sudden illness that excuses me from my Int. Business class at approximately 7:35 PM tonight... That leaves just enough time for me to sprint to my car, drive 90 on H-10 and get home in time to open a bottle of wine and sit down for tipoff. Honestly, if I had to force myself to projectile vomit in the middle of the classroom, then AI would be able to do it with ease. Luckily, I've had an Upper Respiratory Infection, so this should be cake. I'll just start coughing frantically, make a half assed attempt to get water, then come back, cough until I get a concerned look, then I'm out.

2) My daughter, Harper, WILL be dressed in full Longhorn attire. Her college tuition is riding on Texas covering a 1.5 point spread. Since her arrival, Texas is a perfect 2-0 against the spread and straight up (of course, by chance, she's been wearing her Horns gear... Yeah sure, by chance...).

3) A remote control may be broken by jumping out of my hands and throwing itself at my wall.

4) There's a very remote chance my wife will ask me for a divorce, though I've also let her put a small wager on Texas. Works like a charm most of the time. She's still giddy about winning $10 on a $20 bet for "The Departed" to take home best picture...

5) I will NOT come on this board at any time tonight for any reason. Considering the Pediatrician recommended that I not breathe on the baby (even suggested that I get a mask to wear) I will also not be holding the baby. This opens up the possibility for 2-4 bottles of wine to be consumed. If that number happens to trend towards the 4, I will also be sleeping on the couch, possibly not voluntarily.

6) I will NOT be surprised when this thread is clogged with a bunch of trash-talking shittiness, trite attempts at humor, and otherwise dickish behavior... So have at it...

I'm not sure I'm breathing at this point... If this house came with a built-in defibrillator, the word "Clear" would have been used in a frantic manner about 17 times during the last hour.

I'm not going to get divorced, though my stomach may eventually get pumped to clear out whatever the hell I ingested tonight. Acie Law basically gave me two complete "I can't fucking believe this shit" plays. I was ready for a fucking leprechaun to come dancing across my screen on a big shiny unicorn and slam that final missed FT home. I almost hit a pedestrian walking across the street with a shopping cart from Walgreen's trying to get home in time for the game. If I ever had a heroin habit, I would have relapsed at the end of regulation, then overdosed at the end of the first overtime... I honestly cannot say anything more because my brain hurts, my heart feels like it's going to jump out of my chest and carry away my liver. I'm gonna have to take a few minutes to settle down, maybe eat some sunflower seeds, wipe the wine stains off my shirt, call those woodchuck chipping A&M friends on my list, then slowly and deliberately plunge myself in a bathtub of icecubes. I'm spent. I'm done. I'm nothing(man)...

Okay guys. I'll start a bracket contest. I don't know how it will work. I doubt I'd have the resources to make out everyone's bracket...

So maybe you can all make a bracket with all of your picks after Selection Sunday, and then post them up here. And I'll keep track of each bracket, and whoever has the most correct picks, wins, tiebreaker (which I doubt we'll need) will be the usual championship game final score.

I dont know what you'd win either. Feed me some ideas.

Yep. Got lucky thanks to Florida making the final four. All my other final four teams were eliminated early.

I was kind of hoping Ole Miss might squeak into the tourney this year. However, they got massacred by Florida in the SEC tourney, which will probably put them into the NIT instead. Still, first year coach, young team, and picked to finish dead last in the SEC...I'd say they did all right managing a 20 win season.

Living here in C Bus - I getting the feeling he's staying another year, I think he's amazing, but he needs at least one more to "refine" his already mad skillz.

OSU is giving me a heart attack the last two rounds. But they played like a #1 in the seecond half, and anytime you can come back from a 20 point def, without your big (very big) man, it shows you have a ton of talent out there.

Funny thing is I'm originally from Tenn, so I was torn watching the game.
