    That's a surprisingly decent draw. We should still be a three.

    The Yahoo bracket is now up, and I auto re-invited everyone who was in it last year.

    This should get you there:

    I always make three brackets, a homer bracket (Badgers win it all!) and a realistic homer (Badgers in the Elite Eight) and what I actually expect to happen (Badgers lose to KState)

    I set the Yahoo bracket to accept 2 brackets per person because Homer brackets are essential to willing your team to greatness.

    And then realistic brackets are there to help you save face

    Anyone going to see any of the games live? Looks like I'm going to get Midwest Regionals tickets (Indianapolis) off a friend of my wife who bought them thinking IU would end up in the Midwest.

    Looks like it could be a repeat of 2009 I think it was where I got to watch Louisville and Michigan St. in the Elite Eight game at Lucas Oil( Michigan St. went to Final Four). You never saw such a deflated fan base as all the Louisville fans after the game. It was great especially since they were so loud and obnoxious at the Sweet Sixteen game.

    I'll probably go next year. The FedEx Forum is a site for the regional round next year, I think. But this year, I don't think there's a close enough site with teams I want to see.

    Homer bracket I have the Big Ten going undefeated until they play other Big Ten teams and Michigan beating Sparty for the title, just because that would make me happy.

    Except Wisconsin, because fuck Wisconsin. Go Rebels.

    Anyone know of a site with fully customizable scoring for March Madness? Or hell, one that lets me edit scores myself would work I guess. I've got what I think is a cool idea for our friends and family league but the best site I can find for custom scoring is Yahoo and it's not quite what I need.

    Announcers!

    In Auburn Hills, Michigan: Uncle Verne Lundquist (is senile) and Bill Raftery (is AWESOME; ONIONS!)
    In Lexington, Kentucky: Ian Eagle (fine) and Jim Spanarkle (fine to useful)
    In Salt Lake City, Utah: Spero Dedes (fine to good) and Doug Gottlieb (a troll)
    In San Jose, California: Brian Anderson (new?) and Dan Bonner (meh)

    Don't have the Friday teams yet.

    Try CBS Sports?

    I know you can customize the scoring but I'm not sure to what degree.

    Yeah I checked CBS, Yahoo and ESPN. Yahoo is the closest to what I need. It's complex because I am giving bonus points for upsets but if the difference in the seed and the projected opponent (assuming the tourny went to seed) is only 1, there will be no bonus points awarded.

    So a #12 seed making the sweet 16 will receive bonus points for each of their wins even if they play a #13 seed in the second round, while a #5 over the #4 in the second round will not receive any bonus points.

    On homer brackets, I feel like it's bad juju to pick against my alma matter if they're a 1 or a 2 seed, so really, all of my brackets are homer brackets to some degree.

    Friday announcers:

    Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: Kevin Harlan (Fine), Len Elmore (Dry, but good), Reggie Miller (bad)
    Kansas City, Missouri: Marv Albert (great), Steve Kerr (good, better for ESPN)
    Dayton, Ohio: Jim Nantz (awful, scared of black people), Clark Kellogg (milquetoast)
    Austin Texas: Tim Brando (ugggggggggggh), Mike Gminski (solid)

    Probably. It's really only black kids from the inner city he doesn't like. Especially the Fab Five. If you listen to him and Packer calling those games, it's pretty funny/sad.

    Good point. The milquetoast-ness probably also makes it easier.

    Damnit. Without Gus it just doesn't feel like madness.

    As long as I can avoid Gotlieb and Brando I'll survive I suppose. I don't hate Reggie the way you do. I guess I just write off a lot of the stuff he says and listen to him basically talk trash.

    We've got senile Uncle Verne for the first two rounds. Which is kind of sad, but we get ONIONS as compensation. As long as they are not displayed beating us.

    We've got Verne for the first round too. I'd be more upset, but I'll be flying to Boston and won't have to hear him.

    On the other hand, I'm hoping for Pastner and the Tigers to finally get a NCAA win, so I'll be fretting over that the entire flight. #firstworldproblems

    I'm sooo excited.

    With my new job, I can actually watch these games without killing myself or falling asleep.

    Also, tOSU gets a pretty easy West draw.

    But, I don't get to listen to Gus. Which sucks.

  • enlightenedbumenlightenedbum Registered User regular
    Nobody gets to listen to Gus, because CBS is the old fogey network, and old fogeys do not enjoy super excitable announcers. Except Raftery, who got grandfathered in.
    And is white.

    The Midwest Region is insane. I am not pleased with the draw for MSU at all. Louisville is damn good, Duke is good, Saint Louis is good, Memphis is pretty good. Even playing Valpo round 1 is not particularly a happy thing.

  • enlightenedbumenlightenedbum Registered User regular
    Duke can be pushed around. I actually like that matchup fairly well for State.

    Louisville's press + Keith Appling I do not so much like.

    Yeah, I think our bigs match up pretty favorably against Duke.
    I think/hope Saint Louis will beat Louisville, so hopefully we won't have to deal with them.


    Also, it's really hard for me to pick against Indiana and Ohio State in their regions.

  • enlightenedbumenlightenedbum Registered User regular
    I'm with you on Indiana/OSU. I've got Michigan and Sparty to the Elite Eight in my real bracket, but they both run into bad matchups (G'town/Louisville).

    I think the people who are saying VCU would beat us are silly. This team is best when they can run. An entire game of sprinting up the floor means we'd put up 90. To beat Michigan you bog them down in the half court, make us execute, and exploit the porous interior defense.

    Pastner might get the win, but will he still get crap for his only win being against a play-in team? The knock on him is that he can't win unless he has overwhelming talent, and im not so sure Middle Tennessee State\Saint Mary's alleviates that.
