    Yeah, but in two of those games, Duke didn't have Zion Williamson, their top player!

    We'll try. We've been cold as ice since we beat Kentucky in the SEC semis. Iowa worries me because they shoot the three well and that is our Achilles' heel. We simply suck at guarding the perimeter. Auburn exploited it and so did Colgate. I don't know why we have been stuck drawing 3pt teams. Grrr.

    That said, surely Grant Williams doesn't have two bad games in a row. *fingers crossed*

    That Duke/UCF match-up was the most fingerbiting, intense non-UNC game all season. Thank the gods I'll have five days for my voice to recover.

    Even though I'm not in first, I still got a perfect second round on the left side and my entire Elite Eight is intact!

    Is it Thursday yet? :scream:

    Duke is vulnerable.

    They’re going down!!

    I'd be doing alright if I hadn't completely bombed the South region. The rest of my regions suffered very minor losses and no one getting into the Sweet 16 or further.

    Vols vs. Purdue coming up. I'm nervous as hell. A year ago we were picked to finish last in the SEC but a victory over Purdue in the Bahamas tourney launched this team of 3 stars into the stratosphere -- they realized what they were capable of if they worked as a team. I hope we can do the same again.

    ...and there goes my dream of an all-ACC Final Four. The first major loss in my bracket.

    And just like that, half my bracket went down in flames.

    I hope Okeke's injury isn't serious because Auburn is an excellent team.

    Yeah, that was crazier than the UNC/Auburn game!

    Speaking of Auburn, Okeke has a torn ACL and he's done for the tournament. :(

    Adios, Duke.

    My path to victory is clear.

    Go Virginia!

    Well, I'm kaput. :(

    Now I'm hoping for an Auburn/Texas Tech matchup. Two teams who've never been to the Final Four until now.

    Oh, shit, I just noticed the scoreboard: If Virginia loses the next game, I win!

    GO AUBURN! :D

    So did I. I think the moment Duke went out, most people's brackets were done.
