The Elite Eight Thread

LSU vs. Texas and Memphis vs. UCLA. Having not seen a minute of their Sweet 16 games, I can't add too much. LSU is a good defensive team, which should keep them in the game against the more talented Longhorns squad. UCLA has barely pulled out wins over "Bama and Gonzaga, and didn't look good in the 'Bama game. On the other hand, Memphis hasn't played a top team in the tournament yet, so both teams have question marks. I predict this will be a good night of basketball.

Greg Gumbel just informed us that prior to this year, Oakland has twice hosted an Elite Eight matchup, and both times it has the winner has gone on to take the tournament. Will it be a three-peat or did Gumbel just jinx the Tigers or Bruins?

Stay tuned and enjoy the games!

Is anyone else enjoying how the announcers always refer to Glen Davis by his nickname "Big Baby"? Not since the heyday of "He Hate Me" have I heard a nickname thrown around so much.
