Yeah let us know. Its a great sport and I watch most of the games that are on and enjoy them, usually root for someone during the game to make it more fun. Theres so many teams to choose from. I have 2, Florida State Seminoles and Notre Dame Fightin Irish and I follow them both in football and basketball. Just start watching a few games during the tournament and you'll probably be drawn towards one. Or alternatively just support the team you like in ncaa football if you like one. But i'd recommend the noles in basketball, everyone supports the n carolina tarheels or the duke blue devils as they both have great history and are amazing hoops programmes but rooting for a lesser team is more fun when they win! The last two nights we beat them both to win the ACC title for the first time (they have both won it almost 20 times each!)

FSU win it!!! For the first time in their history - that's a hell of a lot of basketball! Bet you're chuffed about that.
That's a turn up for the books, considering the Noles prefer gridiron, and the Heels are the considered b-ball powerhouse. Do you reckon there'll be a place for Duke in the NCAA tournament, given their relatively abject performance in the ACC championship?

Usually,every team will play around 26-30 games in a season,sometimes less.This is just the regular season.Half of your regular season games are against teams out of your conference,the other half is against only your conference.At the end of the regular season,you start your conference tournament.If you are the #1 team in your conference,your the 1 seed for the conference tourney.If you win your conference tournament,you get an automatic bid to March Madness(playoffs).If you do not win your conference,you must rely that you are good enough to get picked to go to March Madness also.In March Madness,there are 4 seperate brackets of 16 teams each.1 through 16 seeds.The best teams in the country get the 1 seeds,while the worst teams in March Madness get the lower seeds.1 seed plays 16,2 plays 15,3 plays 14,and so on.The winner of each bracket goes to the Final 4,which is the final 4 teams remaining.Ex.Final 4;Team A vs. B,Team C vs. D..Team A wins and Team D wins.They play for the national championship.
Let me know if there is anything else you want me to clear up for you.


It's a great sport to watch. You'll really enjoy it if you start following it and the coverage over here is actually better then for the nba because they let you watch march Madness for free online in HD on the website and games are on all the time on espn.

First time I've decided to follow college basketball and have picked FSU as my team. I follow Oklahoma in college football but wanted a different team for basketball and have chosen the Seminoles purely because our current QB went to FSU. As good a reason as any I guess, even if it's a different sport

Anyone done their brackets yet? Done a couple now. Got NC State reaching final 4 in one of them. Florida State winning one and OSU the other so far. Just can't bring myself to go Kentucky/Syracuse yet. Got Harvard going sweet 16 just because it's Harvard as well.

First four start tonight in the delightful town of Dayton. Should be some good watching over the next couple of weeks.

They were the last team picked for the field on Sunday...and we're sweating it out - http://www.gopack.com/allaccess/index.html?media=309424

"Obama and British PM Cameron are attending a "First Four" matchup in Dayton, Ohio, between Mississippi Valley State and Western Kentucky on Tuesday night."

I like Ohio State, Kentucky, Kansas, Mizzou.

Where can you watch it for free? On the NCAA website it's $3.99 which is fine but no point paying it if there is somewhere for free!

Come on ye cheapskate its like less than 3 quid. !!!

For March Madness without any dodgy buffering stream !!!

Do you really think a free stream wont drop out or buffer? You may as well watch it on a black & white TV as well !!!

Looking forward to the Vanderbilt V Harvard game.

A bunch of short white premed nerds trying to play basketball

Hope BYU gets rattled tonight BTW
