Tennessee St. looks like they are on their way to the OVC finals against Austin Peay and ETSU and Belmont are currently playing an A-Sun semifinal for the right to play Jacksonville in the finals.

TSU up 9 with 3:12 left to play

ETSU up 6 with 3:08

Up one and after a foul to send him to the line Kenyatta Swader from ETSU commits a tech that leads to a one point Belmont lead.

unless you live in JC and have always cheered for ETSU on the side. Pigram deserves better.
This right here is the perspective that's missing in the frontrunners on whom I'm always crapping for having two (or three, or four) teams. It's perfectly fine to cheer for more than one team; it's when you stretch that "we" out to include several teams that you start to be ridiculous.

I'm buying you a beer the next time I have to go visit the in-laws in JC. Where's the best place to drink one these days?

I don't drink but all my friends do. However, I really enjoy going to bar's just for something to do. So I get to play the DD, doesn't really bother me. PR's next to campus is fun to hang out at, but I think I prefer either Halo or Stir Fry on weekends because I like watching the live bands. It's also fun to go out on the lake during the summer to Sonny's. 0'Charley's is a popular spot too, but it's too generic for my taste. I would imagine for someone that likes non-generic beers, O'Charley's wouldn't fit the bill, but I don't really know.

As for ETSU, it's hard not to root for them at least a little bit if you're living or grew up here. Especially if you were attending basketball camps there during the Talford, Mister, Dennis and Pelphrey days as a kid. You know they aren't going to do too much anymore, but you at least want to see them get to the big dance. Timmy and Co. did quite well for them just a few years back.

UT Martin is in the OVC and Austin Peay won that conference tourney
This is true. Austin Peay beat UT-Martin in the OVC semis.

I think it's great that 5 teams from Tennessee are going...especially w/ 2 of them potentially being #1 seeds.
