March Madness!

Anyone else as excited about the Tourney as I am? I mean, I live in Florida, but I'm a Tarheel by birth and still bleed UNC blue, so this is one of my favorite times of the year. Already got my bracket filled out and the beer chilling!

Now, here are my predictions for the NCAA tourney!

Winners of the play in games: Miss Valley St., Lamar, BYU, USF

Round of 32: Kentucky, UConn, VCU, Indiana, UNLV, Baylor, Notre Dame, Duke, Michigan St., Memphis, New Mexico, Louisville, Murray St., BYU, Florida, Missouri, Syracuse, Kansas St., Vanderbilt, Wisconsin, Cincinatti, FSU, Gonzaga, Ohio St., UNC, Alabama, USF, Michigan, NC St., Georgetown, Purdue, Kansas

Sweet 16: Kentucky, VCU, Baylor, Duke, Michigan St., New Mexico, Murray St., Florida, Syracuse, Wisconsin,FSU, Gonzaga, UNC, Michigan, Georgetown, Kansas

Elite 8: Kentucky, Duke, Michigan St., Murray, St., Syracuse, Gonzaga, UNC, Kansas

Final Four: Kentucky, Michigan St., Syracuse, UNC

National Championship: UNC over Michigan State

GO 'HEELS!

Anyone else got a bracket? Feel free to jump in!

bracket

mine looks quite different than yours...

If we have enough people interested, I will set up a Gunslot NCAA bracket pool. Free to play and winner gets bragging rights for the year. If you guys are interested, speak up!

Just filled mine out. Made a couple changes. for one I no longer see Syracuse making it to the final four without Fab Melo. I have Florida State putting them out to go to their first Final Four ever.

LBC- It looks like you joined the pool but didn't complete the bracket. Make sure to select the winner of the final game, insert the score (for tie breaker) and click save

Anyone else interested in joining, make sure to do it by the first games tomorrow morning. So far there's only 3 of us...

This marks the third time today that i've tried to sign in, open an account.. Or see ANYTHING but the homepage.. Sure you guys will all do fine..

See Reaps 16 pretty well, except Hoyas, and Lobos will go thru further, and while we all love Gonzaga..(really whats up with that) hope, but doubt they will make it to the Elite's. If so then this could be "the" year it happens..

And you're probably right. But I just have a feeling about Gonzaga. Call it gut instinct. And if there's one thing a retired joint cop like you knows, Greg, is we can NEVER stop trusting our instincts.

Now im smart enough not to lose a lot of bucks on Basketball.. sure would like to see Gonzaga win, but doubt they go to the final four..

On the SA thing.. Lost it more and more with every passing month.. Now just an average geez.. ok average geez with a gun and a history maybe..

Well....

So my bracket, like a whole lot of others, is pretty much busted at this point. Norfolk State over Missouri? Lehigh over Duke? (That one busted my bracket and brough a smile to my face all at once, lol.) What in the name of all that is holy is going on in this tournament?

first time thats happened.. four schools from the buckeye state have made it this far, and could go on to the 16 round.. doubt it, but odd for a state not really known for round ball.. my hoyas lost last night so no more dog in the race for me..
