    If Zion Williamson can successfully return from his injury, Duke will destroy all of you!!

    Vols, B*tch.

    (To be clear, I don't mean to call you a name. It's just a message board fan saying we have when we're pumped up and after beating Kentucky for the second time this year I"m pumped the eff up :) ).

    All good! I knew what you meant. :bolian:

    That said, no way! Duke is a monster team this year.

    Only 3 of us this year? Bummer.

    This is one of my favorite sporting events. How can you not love March Madness?

    Maybe we'll get more people once the bracket is out.

    We have our bracket!

    Three ACC teams are #1 seeds! That's only ever happened once before.

    Plus, we have a potential set-up for a Duke/UNC championship game!

    Game on! Choose wisely. Or wildly. Whichever works best for you.

    Well, I think I went a little funny in the head and did a silly thing...

    You'll see when the brackets are revealed. :lol:

    Suck it, losers!

    The stories that trophy could tell would rival the Stanley Cup.

    Do I have to join the entire Yahoo fantasy site to get on, or am I missing something? Every time I try to join, it won't let me unless I try to get a Yahoo email (even though the way it's worded doesn't make it sound required). When I did go to do that, it wants my mobile phone number. I'm not really keen on doing that.

    I'm sitting here with the winning brackets, and I wouldn't mind getting in.

    I'm not sure how it works, as it always identifies my yahoo account, even when I sign out.

    I didn't think you had to have a Yahoo account to play, but...

    I’ll fill out a bracket. But I did not follow college basketball this year so my picks will be mostly based on random choice or things I gleaned from other people talking about it.

    I doubt any of our brackets are better than random chance.

    :lol:

    Random chance often ends up being the winner!

    You do have to join Yahoo.

    I actually tried to do research this year, but I still randomized most of it.

    Considering how well I'm doing with the First Four (I'm 0-3 so far), it seems my research has meant shit. :lol:

    I just mostly picked the favorites but sprinkled in a few upsets that I randomly heard some analyst talk about at some point.

    So my bracket is probably equally good as the experts. :)

    Last call for brackets! It's a lock in four hours.

    And...I've already lost a game.

    Stupid Louisville. Luckily I didn't have them going any further.
