    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! :techman:

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

    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.

    :rofl: ha ha ha. No. Not happening. :p

    What the hell, Georgetown? :lol: :o

    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.

    :scream:

    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.

    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.

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

    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. :lol:

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

    And Gonzaga is about to go bye bye. It's all over but the shouting there. I didn't have the Bulldogs as a final four pick, but to think they won't even make the sweet sixteen--yowza. :cardie:

    I had 'em in the Sweet 16, too, but the Zags practically forecasted this defeat two nights ago with that pitiful showing against Southern. I'm not sure how they even won THAT game. That should have been the first #16 seed beating a #1 seed.

    Gonzaga doing what they do best in March. At least I did not put them further than the Final Four.

    Two posters had Gonzaga winning it all.

    :lol:

    Butler screwed me, those bastards!

    6 out of the Elite Eight left, and all of my Final Four.

    Hanging in there...

    My poor bracket is hemorrhaging red. Hell I had the Zags down to the Final 4.. I just hope my Buckeyes pull out a win today.

    Well I tried to get cute this year and had UCLA, Louisville, Kansas State and Miami in the final four. UCLA and K-State bow out early and my bracket is f*&$#&. Whoever puts money on this stuff is out of their mind.

    Kansas is on a 23 pit swing I think, now. They can't seem to miss!
