I'm open to suggestions for scoring setup as well.  We have until Tuesday to work it out.

Sounds cool, I'm all setup.

Here's hoping for a 2 seed tomorrow late afternoon, Go Bucky!

So I assume we're using Yahoo again.

I didn't set up the yahoo football one so I just used the cbs.sportsline.com site.

Well, I've a Final Four consisting of:

Xavier (West)
Wisconsin (Midwest)
Stanford (South)
Tennessee (East)

Tennessee/Stanford Championship
Bruce Pearl and the Volunteers winning the thing in my bracket.

Yeah, I'm gonna lose.

I don't know THAT much about college basketball, but I DO know that Stanford's solid on the inside, and I think that will get them to the championship game.  I don't think it'll WIN them the championship game, though.  I have:

North Carolina (East)
Wisconsin (Midwest)
Stanford (South)
UCLA (West)

NC over Sconnie
Stanford over UCLA (no way UCLA's luck holds up again)

North Carolina wins the championship 'cause they're North Carolina.


No way Kansas makes the Final Four - they've always choked in the past and this year will be no different.

I think it's great that Michigan State and Purdue won this afternoon stemming from the beating the Big Ten has taken from the media all season long, but unfortunately, I had them both losing their first-round games. Boo.

Xavier sure had a scare for the first 30 minutes or so, and way to go Marquette.

That Duke game was awesome.   I'm glad it turned out the way it did though.  My cinderella team, Georgia, is out though.  They looked good for about 33 minutes.

Yeah Raven, that Duke/Davidson game was epic. I really thought Georgia had Xavier's number this afternoon, but thankfully my dark horse pick for the Final Four is still alive. Bucky had a great showing in the 2nd half, and I'm looking very forward to see how they'll attempt to contain Beasley on Saturday.

As always, a great first-day of the tournament.

I had a pretty great first day. 15/16 picks. We'll see if it holds up though. I'm especially worried about Kansas State. I didn't have them going to the second round and now if they beat Wisconsin (my pick for champion) I'll be totally screwed. Kansas St. played really well and I think their defence will match up against the badgers.

Anyway lots of great games, the Duke game was especially fun. I was pulling for Belmont despite picking Duke to make the Sweet 16. Tourney picks are cool for bragging rights and all but I'd'a loved to see Duke go down in the first round.
