No, on the contrary, *that's* what I was laughing about.

UCONN deserves to lose just because of their butt-ugly uniforms.

Could someone PLEASE tell me what place I'm in and how many points I have in our bracket?

The yahoo sports site is blocked from work and I've been dying over here.

Vandy gets Burnt by Siena?

Looks like No-Upset Thursday is being followed up by Upset Friday!

Siena beat Stanford early in the season. There are no bad teams at the big dance.

Gotta love the madness! Watch out for Boise State tonight.

Thanks. I'm streaming that one from MMOD right now (Ark-Ind on TV currently).

Cards look good (but not great) so far.

Y'know, I get that the UNC game was such a blowout that it didn't make good TV.

But it would have been nice to have seen any of the last 8 minutes or so of clock time... especially since the bench got play time.

Wibble.

Dook gives the ACC a bad name. Everyone says the ACC is over-hyped but it's really Dook that is - everyone else is just moderately hyped which is comes with being in a major conference.

... but tori... how does that explain 12-seeded VillaNOVA over 5-seeded Clemson?

5 vs. 12 is always a 50/50 game.

I'd say it just reinforces that the ACC is quite overrated - with the notable exception of your 'Heels, of course!

Nah. There's something about the 5/12 matchup. IMHO, the "12" seed is one of the last teams in and those teams are often teams that have been good historically, like a Nova, but had a bad season. They're still a good team at heart, and we often see that come out in the tourney. Clemson was actually a pretty good team. A 5? Maybe, maybe not. But they were no worse than a 6.

I dunno. Clemson looked like a really good team to me. I can't explain the meltdown. Clemson, IMO very deservedly beat Duke in the ACC tournament, and I they seem to have enough of everything to be a sweet 16 team. Not sure what happened there. I wouldn't say it's fair for a single game to determine who has the better team. That's not really what the NCAA Tournament is about. It's more a war of attrition for the top seeds, trying to see if some teams are good due to a weaker schedule (*cough*Memphis*cough*) or if some teams are riding on their reputations (*cough*Duke*cough*). Anyway, it's March Madness. Don't bother saying your conference is better than their conference just because you beat that team. We can have best-of-3 or best-of-7 series if you want to really determine that.
