This

Is

March Madness!

Are you ready for bubble teams?
Are you ready for first round upsets?
Are you ready for Sweet Sixteens and Elite Eights and Final Fours?

How about BUZZER BEATERS

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9t3rg_AptzM

How about UTTER UPSET DISAPPOINTMENT

upsets_hampton_0318.jpg


So, talk about the NCAA tourny here.

Also:

FILL OUT A BRACKET!

I have start a Yahoo group so we can all fill out brackets and see who is the best basketball seer.

You should fill one out even if you know nothing about basketball. Crazy things happen in March, and sometimes the ill-informed are better predictors than the ultra-informed.

Group name: D+D Bracketeering
Group #: 27877
Password: wangs


There will be a prize for the winner. A small prize. But a prize.

    Time to catch up on college hoops. I have the feeling that Kansas, as much as I am going to root for them, isn't going to repeat.

    I remember watching that Valpo game from the Top 10 up there. That was a fun day to happen to be in the town of Valparaiso.

    They are tied for the lead in the Big 12 conference. They have a record of 24 - 6. I think they will probably get a number 3 or 4 seed in one of the brackets.

    Signed up, with the Sparties in the title game which makes me sad.

    I *may* be a Big Ten homer.

    Lose: to suffer defeat, to misplace (Ex: "I hope I don't lose the match." "Did you lose your phone again?")
    Loose: about to slip, to release (Ex: "That knot is loose." "Loose arrows.")

    I'm in as Bracket's Edge.

    It symbolizes both Mirror's Edge and the fact that I will get the edges of the bracket correct (the 1-16's and 2-15's) and everything else wrong.

    By the way, the thing I notice about the brackets is that, even though they created a play-in game, nobody ever asks you to predict it. What if someone thinks Alabama St. will beat Louisville but Morehead St. won't? What then, bracket gods?

    It used to be the first tie breaker in the bracket my friend ran. Worth a half point.

    Some people have a hard enough time getting their brackets done by Thursday. Having them done by end of work/school on Tuesday afternoon is a no-go.

    I haven't got a single #1 seed in my final four.

    I don't even have a #2 seed in my final four.

    I am so not getting any of these games right.

    Final Four Picks:

    Wake Forest v Purdue
    Villanova v Syracuse


    hey, it could happen.

    I don't think there's ever been a year in which no #1 has made the Final Four.

    EDIT: No, wait, there have been two years where that's happened. But in both years, a 2 made it.

    For the record, I have UConn over Kansas, Villanova over North Carolina, UConn over Villanova.

    I wish we could have two brackets so I could have made my annual "all hell breaks loose" bracket where ALL the 16s advance to the second round.

    Announcing set up!

    No Gus Johnson for Michigan which was our only hope for the Sweet Sixteen. Dayton is suddenly very dangerous. Also Gus and Raftery working the same day so you can't get 8 games worked by them? Bummer.

    I've always wanted to hear a Gus/Raftery team.

    This is true. Not that Jim "When do The Masters start" Nantz and Clark "Remember that point I made 10 seconds ago, I'd like to make it again" Kellogg are great. But it is better than the Nantz/Packer we hate basketball routine.

    Raftery for #1 color guy!

    Competent if somewhat boring if I remember right.

    Nantz and Enberg are the two you want to avoid. Verne is starting to lose it but he and Raftery have excellent and highly entertaining chemistry.

    Though that blog disagreed last year.
