    Indiana and Ohio State are out. Yep. Michigan State, too.

    Ugly bracket season, fellas. Not one dominant team, so it was tough to choose. Michigan looks like the most well rounded of them all, however. And they might just win it all.

    And to think ... the sanctions from the Fab 5 era were just lifted recently.

    Ugh, anyone catch the player's injury from Louisville? It had his teammates vomiting. Terrible.

    I did not see it on TV and for that I am glad. Here are the gnarly details:

    INDIANAPOLIS -- A gruesome injury that left Louisville guard Kevin Ware with a broken leg plunged Lucas Oil Stadium into horrified silence, with coach Rick Pitino wiping away tears and shocked teammates openly weeping during Sunday's Midwest Regional final.

    Ware's right leg bent in such an awkward and frightening angle that CBS stopped showing replays shortly after the fall in the NCAA tournament matchup against Duke.

    "The bone's 6 inches out of his leg and all he's yelling is, 'Win the game, win the game,' " Pitino said. "I've not seen that in my life. ... Pretty special young man."

    Viewers who saw the injury on TV reacted on social networks and #KevinWare shot to one of the top worldwide trending topics on Twitter. Video of the injury was posted on YouTube -- CBS initially replayed it twice before changing course.


    Brian Spurlock/USA TODAY Sports
    Louisville players Chane Behanan and Peyton Siva react emotionally to a gruesome leg injury suffered by teammate Kevin Ware during Sunday's Elite Eight game against Duke.
    With 6:33 left in the first half, Ware tried to contest a 3-pointer by Duke's Tyler Thornton. Ware's leg buckled when he landed, bending almost at a right angle.

    School officials said Ware was taken to Methodist Hospital with a broken lower right leg. Louisville sports information director Kenny Klein said hospital officials told the school that Ware was "resting comfortably" and that the pain was "under control."

    Klein said a team of doctors was being assembled. Ware underwent surgery Sunday night, during which he had the bone reset and a rod placed in his right tibia. Pitino said that he and his son, Richard, who recruited Ware, along with the team's equipment manager would stay in Indianapolis overnight so they could see Ware, who will remain in the city until at least Tuesday.

    Yeah, you don't want to watch it. It turned my stomach for a bit.

    Terrible injury. Don't watch the video if you're easily scared. Just one of the worst I've seen in years.

    Seems like it won't be career ending, tho, which is the only positive thing about it.



    It's been an amazing year. Precisely the year I pay the less attention to NCAA, I've got three of the final four teams right (and would have all of them if not for Wichita St. beating Ohio St.) Got Lousville beating Syracuse in the finals, btw.

    Congrats TMC! Well done! You had a great bracket. You are awarded 50,000 WRT Cash for the championship and an extra $10,000 for picking Louisville. Bada gets 10K for picking Louisville. Any other WRT members that picked Louisville? I can't tell from the names who is who.

    Ha! Thanks, guys!

    This proves one single truth about the NCAA tournament: it's better if you don't know nothing... :lol:
