Yeah, but you didn't have them beating Pitt did you?

I have 16 right picks so far here. In my other bracket, I have 17, including Western KY. And my worst misses in that one were LSU and Texas A & M, which I got right on my AppleNova bracket.

If I could somehow combine my brackets, I'd be nearly perfect!

Probably won't hold up, but Pitt is only up by 2 with 18:28 left in the game.

39-38 Pitt with 13:32 to go. If this holds up I hope I make it home before the game ends.

E. Tennesse is only shooting 30% but has taken 12 more shots. Pitt must be giving up a lot of turnovers.

Bad FT shooting for both teams. Pitt is 6/10 and E. TN is only 6/14!

It's going to be a nice upset for a couple of our bracketeers.

They were in the top 25 for much of the year until a late-season slump

Louisville is only leading Morehead by 2, 35-33 at half.

BRACKET ENTERING PANIC MODE.

Naah.... typical Louisville game plan.... lull them to sleep in the 1st, and blow it out in the 2nd.

I don't know what rankings you're looking at. On my list they only broke the top 25 once, week 14.

Yeah, that's my bad. Regardless, they've been a respected team all year, and were never considered a bubble team. It's not a very surprising upset.

Teams like WV that shoot a lot of threes are particularly susceptible to upsets because if the long jumpers aren't falling (and they were 5/20 from 3) they're screwed

7-10 and 8-9 matchups can go light themselves on fire.

Ah well, at least my Sweet Sixteen is still intact.

Wow. Wake is down 17 points! They were ranked #1 earlier this season and now they're getting their asses handed to them Cleveland State?!? Oh, and they beat UNC, too...

If it's not red and showing substantial musculature, you're wearing it wrong.

Who beat who earlier in the season means nothing in the tournament. While I am surprised they are getting worked right now, the fact that they beat UNC earlier on doesn't count anymore. Anything can happen in the dance as evidenced earlier by PITT going to the wire with ETSU. That's why I love late March and early April so very much.

90% of statistics can be made to say anything 50% of the time.

I don't know what's happened to MSU's defense, but it's just as bad as it was in the Ohio State game.

A Wake loss will cost me a few bracket points, but it sure would soften up the path through the Midwest for my Cards.

Gooooo Cleveland State!!

Oh, I know. That's why I have FSU losing early. Just kidding. I didn't get a chance to watch many games this season, so if I've seen the team play and play well, that's my only idea of how good they can be. I expect every team to bring their "A" game to the tourney. It doesn't always happen but that's how I make my picks.

I didn't get to see any FSU games this year. I feel I thoroughly underestimated them.

Shit. WFU is in my final 8. I wish they'd quit overrating the ACC every year. It's an embarrassment.

It's so nice not to hear Billy Packer calling any of these games. God, I hated that guy.
