NCAA Tournament first round...I've missed it. A lot of people believe we're playing with house money right now, as most people's expectations of the year have already been passed. I doubt the players - or Gary - have that mentality right now.

I like Maryland here. There's no glaring advantages against Cal, but there's no glaring disadvantages, either. It's been awhile since Maryland hasn't gone up against a team with either a massive athleticism or height advantage. For that reason, I like Maryland in a close one, 71-64.
