I sense......I sense a run towards Yahoo's "Second Chance Bracket" contest.

Re: TrekBBS March Madness Yahoo Bracket

If upsets make for an exciting tournament, then this has been really fun so far, despite my broken brackets.

Three #12s, a #13, and a #15..... and we're not even out of the first round yet. THIS is why the first two days of this tournament are my favorite sporting event of the year!

Re: TrekBBS March Madness Yahoo Bracket

I know that the Jayhawks will most likely end up wearing down the Hilltoppers, but it would be really fun to see a 16 finally win one.

You know, I don't even care that my brackets are blown all to hell (NM in the Final Four... whoops...) - I'm incredibly thrilled for Harvard. And LaSalle. And Florida Gulf Coast. Awesome!

Shame Philly couldn't quite close out the 4-0 deal (and 2-0 against Tobacco Road), but beautifully done A-10!

Re: TrekBBS March Madness Yahoo Bracket

I was sure New Mexico would be in the Final Four. Still surprised.

The way the tournament is going, maybe CSU does have a prayer against Louisville.

ha ha ha. No. Not happening.

What the hell, Georgetown?

Re: TrekBBS March Madness Yahoo Bracket

I'm stuck in the middle of the pack right now. Georgetown screwed me pretty good. I had them going to the Elite Eight. But I think most people are in the same boat, so it's not as damaging.

With UCLA losing, that whole section of my South Bracket is dead.

Oklahoma State and Kansas State did me dirty too.

Re: TrekBBS March Madness Yahoo Bracket

Oklahoma State got a 12 seed opponent that should have been a 5 seed themselves. The first time (several years between tournament appearances) got to them. They hadn't played all season against a guard as quick as what's his name from Oregon, Jozemi? O-State ony beat the likes of Kansas. sigh. That's all. Kansas State sure laid an egg, too. No getting around it.

Re: TrekBBS March Madness Yahoo Bracket

Yeah, didn't anticipate Georgetown going belly up against FGCU. I had them reaching the Sweet 16. My bracket isn't dead yet, but with 25% of my Final Four (K-State) and 3 of my Sweet 16 teams already gone, it's definitely on life support.

If I don't get a strong showing from the ACC in the forthcoming rounds, I'll be out of commission.

Re: TrekBBS March Madness Yahoo Bracket

Seven of my Elite Eight are still alive, and only one person above me has the same final pick, so there's some hope...

Re: TrekBBS March Madness Yahoo Bracket

I was listening to the radio; the announcer was talking about the espn tournament contest. 8.5 million people (and change) submitted brackets. Of the first 32 games, how many perfect brackets were there? Zero. How many got 31 out of 32 correct? Zero. How many out of 8.5 million got 30 out of 32 correct? 5.

Five. Out of 8.5 million. 5 people down on the Gulf Coast of Florida. Out of the 8.5 million and plus brackets, 32 people picked the FGCU upset over Georgetown. I guess 27 of them didn't anticipate LaSalle beating K-State.

Louisville wiped the floor with CSU. I'm sad, but not surprised. Poor Rams.
