You've got about 5 minutes to get your brackets locked in!

Any last minute changes?  Make 'em now!

And yes, I'm taking UNC-W, Winthrop, and MTSU to win in the first round.  Why the hell not?

UNC-W won.  I had UVA picked.

No, they didn't - UVA won 76-71.
I had UNC-W into the Sweet 16, too, so that really hurts.

Yep. Was glancing at it too quick.  And i had uncw also.

Am i looking at the group correctly, no 2 of us picked the same team to win.

wow - you're right!

And 'Nova doesn't really count b/c even though that bracket "belongs" to me, it's just the straight favorite seedings that I put in there for us to compare against.

I picked the turtles to lose.  Turtle soup is excellent!

This is really weird.  We had 8 people enter a bracket.  Everyone picked a different winner.

Admittedly, Metal Dog picked Arizona which is the same as my picking my 14 year old deaf and blind dog - but everyone picked a different team.

There are 15 people in my office pool, and only 5 teams picked to win.

None of my picks that lost yesterday are going to hurt too much, as I picked them all to lose in the second round, except for VCU, I picked them to lose in the sweet 16.

I found a reason for Mirth to care about the tournament!  Apparently Bill Murray's son is an ass't coach for Xavier.
