Unbelievably, I actually moved up yesterday, and am now tied for the most possible points.



That's a sad comment on our brackets, gentlemen.

^Wow. Really says something for the amount of parity that's been going on in the tournament.

I myself got only half of the Elite 8 right (Florida, Louisville, Duke and Ohio State), and the only one of my Final Four teams that's still alive at this point is Duke.... and they get Louisville next.

I just need Louisville to go all the way, which is pretty likely.

I need Ohio State to lose today, however, if I want the championship to myself...

I'd kinda like to see Wichita State become the national champions, as impossible as that sounds. It'd sure make for a great story.

Oh my God, I'm still feeling like vomiting. I'm not talking about the sorry toilet paper state of my bracket, either. I'm sure I don't need to elaborate. Eeeeeeeewwwww OH.MY. GOD. Ewwwwwwww.....

How does that even happen when you don't have Lawrence Taylor landing on you?

Just a freakishly bad landing.

That poor guy. The team sure rallied after that, though.

I can't believe the amazing day that Louisville basketball has had (well, except for Kevin Ware). The women's team kicked Baylor's asses tonight, the one-point final tally notwithstanding.

Re: TrekBBS March Madness Yahoo Bracket

Ah, sweet nostalgia. Maybe not so sweet. I'm surprised Theisman didn't pass out right there in his living room. At least his teammates on the sideline didn't get a close up birds eyes view of it happening like the Louisville bench did.

Re: TrekBBS March Madness Yahoo Bracket

My God, can you believe what's happening? I think Wichita State is going to win this thing. Where is the Louisville team that's trounced everyone? Holy moly mother of Spicoli......

I knew Louisville wouldn't be as deep without Ware, but he wasn't a starter. I didn't think it could possibly make this much of a difference. I picked Syracuse in the other game but I hope it's Michigan. WSU matchs up better with them.
