The Jay Graves Report

Oregon, Gonzaga, Xavier and Kansas move on as Big Momma puts her foot down! “Or Else”

"It's Chris Brown up in this piece playa! "On and Poppin'!"

Well playas…the Sweet Sixteen popped off on Thursday night and I missed on my predictions on 3 out of the 4 games. I picked Michigan to get by Oregon in a nail biter. It did turn out to be just that but the Mighty Ducks prevailed and moved on 69-68.

I thought ole Bobby Huggins’ crew from West Virginia would pull the upset of No.1 seeded Gonzaga. However the Zags held on by the hair of their chinny chin-chin to get out of the joint alive 61-58.

No.11 seed Xavier shocked the world and knocked off No.1 Arizona in a MONSTER game 63-71!!!  It was NUTS!!!!

So the only joint that I got right was No.1 Kansas beatin’ the brakes off of the 4th seeded Purdue Boilermakers 98-66!!!

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! I figured Michigan had something special and that the whole plane crash story and the bondin’ they were able to do would carry them at least to the Elite Eight. However, Oregon came out in the funky Yellow uni’s lookin’ like some straight up pimps rockin’ perms at a playas convention!!

No way were they goin’ to lose that game wearin’ uniforms as funky as those bruh! The Indiana Hoosiers better take notice of what you’ve got to do to recruit 15 year olds. The idea that I threw out on the radio the other about puttin’ their names on the backs of their jerseys at the very least is mandatory if a boy is runnin’ up and down the floor in all yellow includin’ the shoes. I’m just sayin’!

Gonzaga was not goin’ out like some suckas to Bobby Huggins’ Mountaineers on the national stage. They did everything in their power to advance and you’ve got to give them some respect. Why? Because West Virginia came into the joint like some gangstas ready to take some sneakers and jewelry but the boyz from Spokane wasn’t havin’ it.

They took a few punches to the face, ran in the crib and guess who was standin’ in the kitchen? Big Momma!! And you already know that they got the usual old school spill. “You better march yo butt right back out there and fight him or else you’re gonna have to fight me!” Well playas…they went back out there and got it in to move on.

“Man please slow this joint down?”

The only game that went the way I thought it would was Kansas pushin’ Purdue out the whip like ole Eddie Kane Jr.! The Boilermakers at least came out and jumped on these boyz. They were firin’ 3-pointers off from West Lafayette as soon as they tipped the rock. Before you knew it they were up 25-18 lookin’ like some assassins or at least some snipers on top of the Carter in New Jack City.

Then all of the sudden the Kansas guards figured out that they couldn’t go back into the house either because Big Momma’s dandruff was up already. They found their composure and put their feet on the gas!! Once the Jayhawks started runnin’ it was a wrap! The Boilermakers’ only chance of bein’ in that ball game was to keep them at a half court game. NOT!!! They ran Purdue out of the gym and boyz are still lookin’ for them this mornin’.

So the the duns that have punched a ticket to the Elite Eight thus far are Oregon, Gonzaga, Xavier and Kansas! Stay tuned for my Real Playa Podcast this mornin’ for my predictions for Friday night’s games! It doesn’t get any better than this playboy! Oh yeah, and stop me when I start lyin’!
