NCAA Basketball
2012-2013


Midnight Madness has come and gone, and we are closing in on the NCAA basketball season.
This will be our first NCAA Basketball comp, and here are the rules:

1. One point per tip
2. Deadline will be midnight Friday FT time with a short grace period of 2-3 hours, except for week 1 which will be midnight Thursday (with grace period). Late tips get a 1-point deduction.
3. Default tips are road teams, or those listed first for neutral-site games.
4. Late starters will enter at the lowest score at that time, and after 4 weeks of not tipping you will be considered inactive.
5. End-of-season tiebreakers are HOF v. WS differential; then HOFs; then bonus points.
- This comp is separate from the March Madness comp

Bonus Points
1. One point for solo picks or one of two
2. One point for picking 13+/15
3. Ineligible for bonus points if tipper picks all home teams or all but one
-The team listed second is considered the 'home' team, even for neutral-site games.

Not to worry (too much) - lots of mediocrity in there and we'll focus on the biggest conferences as well as the best of the rest... don't go digging into the Great West or Western Athletic Conferences too deep.

  • The first-ever regular season NCAA basketball comp is up and running, and what a week to start it off. Two games played in an indoor sport were cancelled, and there were upsets galore - South Alabama took down Florida State, just like paper_aero predicted; George Mason edged Virginia, called by LeoDaVinci and gtho4; Bucknell went into hostile territory and took out Purdue as illiniman14 said; and Central Florida beat in-state rival South Florida as Sypher forecasted.

  • The Carrier Classic, first played successfully last year on the USS Carl Vinson, failed to live up to the hype this year. The Ohio State-Marquette game, supposed to be played on the USS Yorktown, was cancelled before the game tipped off due to condensation on the court. The Florida-Georgetown game on the USS Bataan got through the first half, before both coaches agreed to call the game due to condensation at the start of the second half. The Syracuse-San Diego State game on the USS Midway was postponed from Friday night to Sunday afternoon due to rain.

  • Srini wants his money back from gtho4 - clearly he sent the defective dartboard! gtho4 expertly predicted/threw his way to a HoF with 10, while srini701 sits in 10th. Reigning March Madness champ George95 is also in the mix, sitting 2 back from the early lead.

  • And because you're wondering, Illinois is 1-0 smilee

    You bet I do! He clearly kept the good board for himself smile ... On second thoughts maybe I will wait and see a couple more weeks before I ask for my money back...

    On another note, illini, the scores include the sole bonus points also? I would have thought gtho got 10 right and a sole point bonus, making it 11 points for him for round 1...

    Yes, I had included the bonuses in this week's score. Fixed to make it clearer, though.

  • George95 claims the lead with a dominating HoF performance (and solo pick to boot), and was set to pick up the first perfect bonus until Belmont hang on to win Sunday night. On the other side of the spectrum, srini is still grumbling over the faulty dartboard (or maybe he keeps hitting the bullseye and that throws everything off), and picks up his first spoon, along with ozzz and wwe. LDV became our first default tipper, and slipped back from #2 to #14.

  • College basketball can produce some great teams from little-known places (or formerly unknown – looking at you VCU and Ohio U.), and we have seen several this week. Belmont, the third-largest college in Nashville, went to Stanford and fought off a second half comeback to beat a power conference team seemingly on the rise (or at least everyone but ozzz and srini thought). Bucknell, from Lewisburg, PA, now sits at 5-0 after taking out two tournament teams from last year – Purdue and NMSU. Who is this year’s Cinderella? That remains to be seen.

  • We’re considering Week 2 our “bracket buster” week, full of potential big names that could make a huge impact come March. Bucknell has already beaten Purdue this year; Ohio made the Sweet 16 last year before generously sending their head coach to Illinois ; everyone’s darling VCU should have another strong year after back-to-back NCAA tournaments, including one Final Four; and they will fight for the CAA title with Drexel , who matched VCU’s record last year but fell short of the NCAA tournament, going to the NIT quarterfinals instead; among others. Also, tournaments fill in the early schedule, meaning top matchups like Sunday’s Ohio State-Washington game can’t be known beforehand.

  • And thanks to a buzzer-beating three in OT, Illinois sits at 3-0. cool

  • Sypher makes his first HoF, nabbing 11 picks – only Colorado State tripped him up aside from the games nobody (or only one person) picked correctly. On that note, plenty of bonus points were up for grabs this week, but only wwe84 grabbed one for his gutsy pick of La Salle over Villanova. Elsewhere, George95 maintained his 1-point lead with another double-digit effort. N-Bomb gains the first gimme pick, failing to pick the UL-Lafeyette-Michigan State, but all other 14 tippers picked correctly.

  • Two ranked teams fell in our comp this week, as #24 Baylor was squeezed 63-59 by the College of Charleston, and powerhouse UCLA gave up an 18-point lead in less than 8 minutes to Cal Poly before going down 70-68. However, some favorites don’t like to mess around, and #1 Indiana destroyed, dismantled, and demolished Ball State 101-53.

  • Major early season tournament time is over, and with it the end of your humble organizer shaking his fist at the TV wishing we could have used oh so many games - #5 Duke topped #2 Louisville and #13 Missouri overcame a tough VCU team in the Battle 4 Atlantis; while #17 Gonzaga beat a tired Davidson team to win the Old Spice Classic. The Diamond Head Classic remains around Christmastime, but only contains 2 major programs.

  • That noise you heard from Hawaii the middle of last week? That was the Orange Krush cheering Illinois to the Maui Invitational Championship. laugh They now stand 7-0 after a 3-pointer in the waning seconds over… Gardner-Webb eek

    It has come to my attention for week 4 that Belmont is incorrectly listed as playing TCU (Texas Christian) instead of VCU (Virginia Commonwealth). Due to the fault being entirely my own, everyone will be credited for the win as to not take the possibility away for bonus points.

  • What do you get when you mix a rookie comp organizer with 347 teams? Mix-ups, that’s what. VCU was playing Belmont this week, but a slip of the mind or finger changed that to TCU. Future weeks have been checked, and it won’t happen again – I apologize for the mistake. For the record, VCU won 75-65.

  • George95 keeps his slim 1-point lead over gtho4, thanks to getting all 3 Sunday games correct. BxBarracuda, N-Bomb, dg_dave, and themonarch all came away with HoF performances, aided by a few upsets over the weekend. dg_dave, our native Texan, ended up bringing home the most points with the HoF as well as his upset pick of Baylor over #8 Kentucky in Lexington.

  • #15 Oklahoma State was also bitten by the upset bug, as they travelled to Blacksburg, VA, and were greeted with an 81-71 loss to a surprisingly undefeated Virginia Tech team. The #5 Louisville Cardinals knew that redbirds play well at the Yum! Center. Unfortunately, they played the Illinois State Redbirds, and clawed their way to a 69-66 win. Needless to say, with the Kentucky and Louisville games, Saturday was quite tense here in KY.

  • The Big Ten retained the Commissioner’s Cup in the Big Ten-ACC Challenge this year, despite the fact that it tied for the first time 6-6. One of those wins for the Big Ten? You guessed it, #22 Illinois (8-0) trounced Georgia Tech, and next week we all finally get to pick a Fighting Illini game as they take on a powerful Gonzaga team.
