    Sure wish I was but we are going later....4/30 after hitting the 1st week of MM for 13 years in a row. Always seemed to run into VMB folks each year....thanks to those green bands. Have a great time!

    I'm from Buffalo and will be heading there for Rounds 1 and 2 regardless of who is seeded there. By the way it's fun as hell to attend the Tourney, if you've never been.

    Also, I would like to see T-Mobile Arena (Vegas) actually host rounds 1 and 2 one year.

    I'll be there late Wednesday the 15th through Monday the 20th. Excited to watch some hoops. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like my Buckeyes will be partaking in the madness.

    Are you part of the Big 12 drink bet I saw in the MMILV Facebook page? I almost jumped in but wasn't sure if we'd be downtown that night to pay up or collect haha. I am a WV fan (went to school there). Don't know if we'll be downtown or not Wednesday but if we are ill definitely shoot you a message here.

    I'll be there barring any surprises at work. March 14th or 15th - March 21st

    At Luxor until the 17th, then The D until the 20th, and finally Rio for my last night.

    Personally I'm a UVA fan and generally pull for the ACC in the tourney (except for duke & unc of course)

    Probably not unless they run the table come BIG 10 tourney time. However there should be at least 3 BIG 10 teams and possibly as many as 5! Wisky, Purdue and Maryland all look good to go! Northwestern is the surprise of the year. And you can never count out IZZO! Heck there's some Pitino bliss lines in Minnesota plus the maize and blue have been known to pull a rabbit out of their hat come BIG 10 tourney time too!

    ACC fans will have a lot of teams to pull for! I'm expecting no less than 5 teams in the dance.
    Something tells me that at 1 pm today you will be locked in on CBS! Game should be as good as Kansas v Kentucky!!

    Many say that the Westgate is the best sportsbook to watch the games at! What about it makes it special in your opinion? I actually have a 2 night comped booked at Westgate, for Friday and Saturday! Was thinking about stopping by there so I figured I'd get the free room!
