Any good brackets to fill out? Everywhere I check, the prizes suck really bad and I don't want to be the 1st person in history to get a perfect bracket only to get a trip to a studio.

Ex-Buckeye Sibert with the game winner for Dayton.

They played a home game, which was stupid. And now they play in the Columbus region, also stupid.

The biggest thing for me in the tournament is Justin Anderson.

He played horribly in his 2 games "back" but is he fully healed now? If so, Virginia can make it to the Final Four. If not, I have them losing to Mich. St. in round of 32.

I have a love/hate relationship with March Madness. More of a hate b/c a) It stresses me the fuck out and b) I am no longer in college so I can't just skip a day of classes and go get drunk all day.

Was seriously debating taking a 1/2 day today and a full tomorrow. Only have 9 more months to use up my vacation days :chuckle:

@Randolphkeys Utah and Zaga are two classic boom or bust teams, though. Stephen F. Austin is no joke and the same team from their upset bid last year and Gonzaga (who I always buy into) hasn't eclipsed the Sweet 16 since 1999 I believe. Fun teams, though.

FWIW (it is worth nothing)...

EAST:
1. Kentucky over 4. Maryland
3. Notre Dame over 7. Wichita State

1. Kentucky over 3. Notre Dame

WEST:
1. Wisconsin over 5. Arkansas
2. Arizona over 3. Baylor

2. Arizona over. 1. Wisconsin

EAST:
1. Villanova over 5. Northern Iowa
7. Michigan State over. 6. Providence

1. Villanova over. 7. Michigan State

SOUTH:
1. Duke over. 12. Stephen F. Austin
3. Iowa State over 2. Gonzaga

3. Iowa State over 1. Duke

FINAL FOUR:
1. Kentucky over 2. Arizona
1. Villanova over. 3. Iowa State

FINAL
1. Kentucky over 1. Villanova

I have a feeling either 2 14's or a 15/16 will win this year.

I went a bit out of the box.

Elite Eight:

Kentucky over Wichita St.

Arizona over North Carolina

Michigan State over Villanova

Duke over SMU

Final Four:

Kentucky over Arizona

Michigan State over Duke

Final:

Kentucky over Michigan State

1. I have a feeling that my bracket will fail miserably or I will look like a genius.

2. I fully expect my bracket to fail miserably.

@Frank Stallone I will do a signature bet for one week on the Stephen F. Austin game. I think they are all hype.

Providence over Oklahoma would severely fuck my bracket up.

I have an OU and KU bias. Dislike both immensely. I stopped picking 100% with brains once I moved to Texas in 2004. We alway had teacher conferences the first two days of the tournament - so I was able to watch every game with our (at the time) handy DirecTV package. I started liking chaos/upsets more than my bracket.

I don't get why people don't fill out brackets and claim it is "more fun" that way. You can fill them out and still root for upsets. Just don't spend oodles of money...

You're on!

Fair statement. They only survived from a 4-point play last year, but win or lose I maintain they're good. Utah was probably under-seeded as well.

I am rooting for Dayton to beat Providence and Oklahoma, hell, even Albany. I don't think either will happen. But as a flyer alum, I can dream.

I can understand what you mean.

I will never pick Kentucky to win a tournament in my main money bracket. Kentucky could have all five starting players be 7'0", have the handles of Kyrie and the agility of a gazelle, and I would still pick Lorain County Community College to beat them if they both happened to make it to the finals.

I have UK making it to the Final Four, but not to the championship.

Yeah, this is my first year of working during March Madness and it already sucks.

I know I am not going to have a perfect bracket so if NE could somehow upset ND, that would be fantastic. As I have Texas going to the Elite 8.
