March Madness

Recommended Posts

Rather than revive the 2014 thread I figured I'd get a new one going.

Don't tell the boss, but not a lot of work is going to get done Thursday and Friday.

My bracket... here goes nothing!

Spent approx. 5 minutes blindly picking. Paid no attention nor did any analysis. Which means I'll probably do well this year.

I have a lot of friends who are Northwestern alums and it was awesome to see them win their first ever tournament game!

Gonzaga is going to drink their milkshake though. B)

I have a lot of friends who are MTSU grads. I didn't realize they were there, or any good, but I saw more local basketball talk last week than I had since UTC(hattanooga) made it and was picked up by Jimmy Fallon.

Maybe I should go watch that game against Butler at some local bar.

And down goes Nova!

I've still got all my elite 8 alive, but that can change quickly.

The Northwestern love was nice while it lasted. They have zero chance against this Gonzaga team.

Zero is being kind.

I picked Wisconsin, and in fact having them winning the next game as well, but Duke going to the Final 4. Actually, looking at Dave's brackets above, my East is identical to his.

A lot of great games today. I guess a good second round is the reward for such a shitty first round.

I don't really watch any sports except hockey, but I do follow Gonzaga, because my dad played for them in the late 60s.  I will have to call him, because WVU is where he went to medical school...

yup, he was a guard.  That was long before they were a significant team, however.

Awesome night of basketball. 3 of the 4 games come down to the final minute. 

Hope Friday can live up to this!

Death of my brackets! Oregon outplayed and definitely outshot Kansas tonight. My Final 4 is gone. Only guessed 1 game right in the First 4, then got 24 in the first round, 10 out of the Sweet 16, and 4 out of the Elite 8. That's 39 in total. I've done better and I've done worse.

I watched 2/3 of yesterday's gonzaga game.  As much basketball as I've seen in years.

I was cheering for MSU to win and they sure did deliver big time.  Very thrilling toward the end. UConn made bad play toward end with leaving too much time on the clock.

It would have been near-criminal if that flagrant foul call decided the game.  The timing of the victory is pretty funny too as I'd best most (myself included) woke up only to think that some elaborate prank was underway.

I'm embarrassed for the NCAA. That game was so shitty I think I might be done with college hoops for a long, long time.

This ESPN piece about sums it up. http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/story/_/id/19072726/referees-missed-shots-poor-play-make-forgettable-national-title-game
