2024 NCAA Tournament Thread

It's that time of the year again, guys! The first few days are always crazy especially when you have 4 games going at once.  :excited:

My zeal has been subdued from this season tbh. Maybe I'm just getting old.

Best weekend of the sports year (unless Cats are playing in the second weekend).
Our new conference bros (BYU) need to wake up.

The NCAA app and their website might be the best sports/streaming platform ever created. It's crazy that a one a year thing is 100x better than the straight up garbage ESPN+ platform.

Tell me more about this. I typically just watch in YTTV, which would be perfect if they allowed you to choose the four channels for their multiview element.
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

Have you never used this before? You can add and remove whatever you want and it's incred. Same thing in their app

It is great, I do wish they didn't play an ad before they show the action, that's annoying as hell when flipping between late and close games.

Only other beef is that you can't watch the CBS games in the app, but, otherwise, it helps address the max logins with YTTV when you're trying to watch 4+ games at once

Max has everything but CBS and Paramount has CBS for any non-cable streamers.  It's a little annoying to navigate to CBS but not too bad.

This reminds me of those "bar caps" that used to be sought after in the late 1990's. Along with the South Carolina "COCKS" one, the "MOREHEAD" cap was highly sought after because it said MOREHEAD right there on the cap.

I did pick Illinois to get to the elite 8, but I had little confidence in it

you can if you login with your provider credentials, maybe you can't with YTTV, dunno, but I definitely watched a CBS game on the app earlier today
