My Mizzou Tigers are terrible, so I'm switching allegiances to St.Louis U, who is actually very good.

They need to stop calling the play-in games the "First Round", everyone knows it's stupid and lame. And non of the analysts can remember to call Thursday/Friday the "Second Round"

I love March Madness for the fact that everyone watches 30 minutes of ESPN and thinks they're an expert. Was playing poker last night, and everyone had their little talking points.
"Man, I really like South Dakota State... they're really good at shooting 3s, and that's Michigan State's weakness"
"I've got Iona going to the Elite 8, I like the way they spread the ball around, and they've got a guy who's 7'2"

Really? You watch a lot of South Dakota State games do ya? Tell me what color their uniforms are...

All the experts say that if SLU plays Louisville that they can beat them, but I also saw Louisville destroy Mizzou, and others.
I think Louisville or Miami is going to win, but also that big headed Ryan Kelly Duke team might as well.
There's going to be a lot of Barry Larkin face-time
Who ya got?

I filled out my bracket at work today and my Final Four was Louisville, Arizona, Georgetown, and Miami with Louisville winning the whole thing. My first round upsets are Oregon over OK State and Bucknell over Butler. I've only watched like 30 minutes of college basketball all season, so I'm almost completely in the dark, but there it is.

I see Pitt is an 8, so even if they win their first game, they'll have to play Gonzaga. There goes my rooting interest.

I'm doing 4 brackets.

Bracket #1 D-D NCAA (Wackbag's league):

Louisville
Wisconsin
Kansas
Miami (FL)

Louisville beats Miami (FL) in the championship game

The other 3 are with CBS fantasy sports:

Bracket #2

Duke
New Mexico
Georgetown
Miami (FL)

This time I having Miami (FL) winning it all over Duke.

Bracket #3-This was an auto fill based on historical randomness.

Michigan State
Gonzaga
VCU
Miami (FL)

Michigan State over VCU in the title game.

Bracket #4:

Duke
Wisconsin
Indiana
Kansas

Indiana over Wisconsin in the title game.

In a couple of the brackets, I have picked Oregon over Oklahoma State and Bucknell over Butler in one. I'm also on the Colorado and Colorado State bandwagon.

Unfortunately, Alabama didn't make the big tourney. #1 seed in the NIT... I think Miami has a legit shot at winning, but Indiana is a damn good team.

They're really good, but I just feel like Louisville is going to be upset early somehow.

Got Miami winning over Gonzaga. I'd be surprised if Duke makes it to the final four.

Even though it would've meant an instant -$100, I was hoping Gonzaga lost.
Stupid Southern, they had the game if they just had another stop and basket...

I had those 2 as well, Oregon now losing to SLU.
I had Bucknell losing next game, so who cares.

Any loss by a 4+ seeded team in the first round this year isn't an upset. The rating system has been meaningless this season.

GO ZAGS!!!

And yes I was shitting myself during that game. Southern put up a great effort.

I'm also very happy that Louisville embarrassed NC A&T. Fuck Jesse Jackson.

Probably the first time in 30 years I didn't fill out a bracket
There as a new 1st round this year with 4 games ?
WTF ?

The Play-In game was annoying enough

Go Tar Heels
I don't even know if they're in it this year though

Tar Heels are in but don't expect much of them this year. One win, maybe two at best. The program is a little bit down by North Carolina standards.

Fuck Duke.

Good morning. I hope all your brackets are fucked up.

Although the Zags are kinda the home team (in the state, anyway), I was hoping they would lose just to fuck with Bracket Guy's life.

I was 12 of 16 yesterday. My brother lost his runner up, New Mexico. Lulz.

Cmon Buckeyes! The journey to the Final Four just got a little easier.

I did a heads-up bracket with a guy for $100.
I'm 12-7 I think at the moment, but I have all Sweet 16s alive, and he has 2 dead even though he was like 16-3

I have Gonzaga going to the F4, so I'm not so confident after that didn't look so great.

Also, they keep advertising this new Shaq "Upload" show. Isn't that just like a terrible version of Tosh.O or the MTV Rob Drydeck(sp) show?
Who's terrible idea was that

Haha, some fat girl is sad that Kansas State lost. Maybe they should have showed up in the first half.

Florida Gulf Coast U? I've been watching college sports for quite a while and I swear I've never heard of that school.
