So far I'm 100%

I picked old dominion over ND, and BYU over Florida. Wow... what great games. Both in O/T.
ODU won in regulation, not OT.

Oh yeah. It was the Bob Morris/Villanova game that went into O/T. My bad.

I should have been more clear - I hate Florida, Florida State, and Miami in basketball and football but I did have Florida winning that game. I see I now lost the Butler - St. Mary's game. This is why my name isn't Dick Vitale!

We're going to Villanova on Saturday on a college visit for my son - yes I have them in the final 4. Mr. Twain - if you want to see maybe the most AWESOME college b-ball game ever pull up the 1985 Villanova-Georgetown game. If you remember, Nova was an 8 seed and got there by beating Dayton, Michigan, Maryland, and North Carolina. It was a great time to be in the Philly area!

SInce I know nothing of college basketball, I pick schools where people I know people attended. Not exactly prone to giving me excellent results. But still Notre Dame loses to ODU, Georgetown loses. Oh well, as JM66 said, time to go to Home Depot and get started on those home improvement projects.

Gig'em Aggies!!!!!

My bracket isn't as bad as I thought it would be... My elite 8 and final four are still in play...


The final four is in Houston next year. It will be interesting to see how fast they can get the rodeo cleaned up for the games. There is a lot of poop to get moved!
I must be wishing on someone else's star....

What the tournament "would look like if teams advanced based solely on their outcomes in the classroom."

"The winners were determined using the NCAA's Academic Progress Rate, a nationally comparable score that gives points to teams whose players stay in good academic standing and remain enrolled from semester to semester."

Click the bracket for full-size. And congrats to Kansas. :D
