Right there with you Chief!   I am never close in these things.   Awaiting the inevitable crash and burn that day 2 brings.

This a first for me too, i did not fill out any brackets this year.

I'm not in the 11W bracket challenge, and that's a good thing. All my brackets now look like random lines, dots, and trapezoids.
thanks for not quite getting over the hump, Davidson and St. Mary's. And thanks to you too, Belmont.
oh, and F**K YOU, Pitt. Should have known better than to ever trust you.
And thanks, New Mexico and UNLV.
And you too, Oklahoma State.

I'm currently tied for 840th place!!! I'm making a big comeback today!

My champion, Ohio State, is still in it! I'm sure no one else picked them... that's why I'm going to win!!!

Some of the bracket titles/screen names are freaking brilliant. My favorite is LaQuinton Ross like a Boss LOL! If he turns into a Boss watch out America.

[SHAKES FIST SKYWARD] DAMN YOU, HARVARD!

I say thank you, Harvard. You just made the bracket easier...

I'm glad Harvard won too. Should make my Arizona to the sweet 16 pick work out better. Unless they can beat Zona too, but I don't think they can pull that off. New Mexico was so overrated this year. Heck they lost at HOME to South Dakota State after the Jackrabbits had to take a bus cross country for the game lol.

Should have known better than to pick UNLV. And missouri. But otherwise I feel pretty good. Especially about my VCU in the final four pick. They just always seem to ratchet up the havoc in march.

This is irritating to me because I was all over Harvard last year and they really let me down.  The picks I missed were Arizona over Belmont, Harvard over New Mexico and Memphis over St. Mary's.  Best of luck to everyone for today.

Well nobody in front of me has Georgetown winning it all, so if they can pull it out I actually have a chance in this thing

Sorry Urban, Woody is still my favorite

Just sayin'...

Triv's picture

I may be "doing it wrong" but fortunately for me having OSU has the winner wasn't a stipulation of the contest :) 

Sorry Urban, Woody is still my favorite

I've got some bad news, dude...

Real fans stay for Carmen.

TLB's picture

I think I should have spent more than 4 minutes filling mine out.

Me too.

I'm lurking 2 behind the leaders.  Freakin Harvard and Cal screwed me up.

BrokebackBrennan is still in the hunt. Every team that I didn't pick to win I have losing in the very next round so I think I'm actually sitting pretty decently.

It's just weird because my fiancé's name is Courtney

steensn's picture
