Just doing the work - our March Madness Package is and has been up - moving on.

733 Mid. Tenn 0.0 (-110) Pinnacle vs 734 Minnesota
Analysis: MTSU has almost the entire team back this season from the one that beat Michigan State in the first round last season, so the tournament and a Big Ten team are not something they're going to be overwhelmed by. Their non-conference schedule included a three point loss AT VCU, a win over Mississippi (which looks even better after what the Rebels did to Monmouth on the road), and a win over UNC Wilmington and AT Vanderbilt. So, there's that. They protect the ball exceptionally well, so the Gophers pressure shouldn't disrupt them. They score inside, and the Springs loss should actually effect the Gophers defense more than their offense, although with him being out they'll have to use McBrayer for a TON more minutes than he's used to. He played 20-25 during the regular season, and actually played all 40 in their loss to Michigan, as did Nate Mason. So, they were thin BEFORE Springs went out, and they were young BEFORE Springs went out (and he's a Senior). That Michigan game wasn't nearly as close as the final score - they were blown out early. Give them credit for making a game of it - but that was also a Sunday game, so more travel and one days' less rest than MTSU. That's all I got.

Love it, Dave.

I have Middle Tenn going to Sweet 16.

Also I think a 12/5 matchup and the line is Pick tells us all we need to know.

Cool - I think one of my brackets had that, too - perhaps Bone should book your action - maybe reduced juice!
