Tourney picks are cool for bragging rights and all but I'd'a loved to see Duke go down in the first round.

I couldn't agree with you more.  It's fun to see upsets no matter who it is, but Duke for some reason would be even sweeter.

Stephen Curry is on fire! 27 of Davidson's 41 in the 2nd half. Drake's currently storming back!

Minnesota, I'm happy with having to play K-State over USC. I was more worried about USC's athleticism in the 2nd round than anything else. Beasley's gong to get his points, but I'm not worried about them.  I hope I'm right about this one unlike Bucky's 2nd round upset at the hands of UNLV last year. But then, that was more because of Butch's horrendous injury at OSU shortly before the tournament which all but made Tucker ineffective for the most part. So yeah, Go Red!

Drake down 7 with 3 minutes to go...

Curry's now on 40.

Oh my god, what an ending to the WK/Drake game. The MVC darling is gone.

My bracket is blowing up. I had Drake in the Sweet 16.

It's been a somewhat brutal morning/afternoon for me so far with Drake and St. Mary's losing. A win by San Diego would even things out a tad, and as of this moment I'm only 2 games out of first place.  Hey, I'm tied with you, Raven.

Wow, is Butler pounding S. Alabama.

Having off from basically everything during the 1st round of the tournament is wonderful.

Yay!  I'm in first place!  (Under my real name, Ben Knaak).  Tied with...whoever Jason Pick is.  It's not Raven or TeamRAD....

Minnesota, is your name Jason Pick?

Created a username, CBS is just wierd like that I guess. (much prefer YahooSports)

Anyway yesterday was brutal, lost 3 of my sweet 16 picks(Uconn, Boise St., and Clemson). Glad to see my elite 8 remains untouched. The Drake game was by far the best game yesterday.

Damn it!  I had Clemson in the Elite Eight!  And I had Wisconsin beating them! >:(

It looks like a quarter of my Final Four may already be in jeopardy (unless either Vandy, Siena, or UNLV upsets Kansas).  :angry:

Beasley's a monster. Bucky with 39 in the 1st half?  Slow it down, guys. :)

Duke from 3-point land, 5-22. That will bury you. I had Duke losing in the Sweet 16 to Xavier. Siena busted up the upper portion of my Midwest bracket rather well. I had Vandy in the Elite 8, and beating Kansas in the Sweet 16. I still can't believe a 13 seed beat a 4 seed by 21 points.

Yesterday was March Madness.

Marquette almost took out Stanford.  Great game.  BBQ almost lost his runner up but Lefty lost his Champ.

Well, my final 4 is in tact so far, but I've lost 2 of my elite 8.   I hope tomorrow works out better.

I'm sorry, but the only 'March Madness Pool' around my locale is my relatives being upset because it's too cold to go swimming yet...  :rimshot:

Round two had some close games.

Georgetown fell victim to the tournament Cinderella in Davidson. Now Wisconsin is going to have to beat yet another underdog if it wants to advance. (and Wisconsin still looks like the best team in the tournament to me).

Tennessee was lucky to escape Butler who made an amazing comeback, but Tennessee snook by in overtime (most of which wasn't televised :( ), I actually had Butler in the elite 8 too... damn.

Purdue fell to Xavier (making Purdue my 2nd E8 team to fall). Xavier is way better than I realized, they should have no problems making the Final Four.

I am thouroughly unimpressed by Memphis and UCLA.

North Carolina is the second best team in the tournament. They'll cruise to the Final Four.
