How the &$%#@ am I in first place?  Won't last, of course - notice who has the fewest PPR....

Wisconsin beat Villanova.  That'll screw up a lot of brackets.

The Big10 teams have been hurting me this week.  Winning when I picked them to lose and losing when I picked them to lose.

I picked Villanova to make it to the finals.  Unless the Tar Heels win it all I'm probably out.

Don't give up hope yet.  If Kentucky wins it all you will win the pool.

True but I have Michigan and AZ as my other 2 Final Four teams.   :idiot2:

Two of my final 4 teams are out, Villanova and FSU.  Need Michigan and UCLA to make it the Final 4 and for UCLA to win it all.

Iowa State losing hurt.  Good game at the end, but they put themselves in a deep hole with their first half play.

I think Villanova probably f'ed everyone equally, since we all had them making a deep run

Straight Chalk is in the lead, but won't last into next weekend with 'Nova going out.

Well down goes another of my Final Four teams.  I'm actually ok with it, because I cannot stand Rick Pitino.  He's one of the bigger douchebag coaches in collegiate athletics.

well, I'm out.

Louisville didn't make it out of the first weekend.  Hard to win the title when you can't win a second round game...

Anyone know why all of the West bracket games are being played on the same day and not spread out over 2 days like the other brackets.  All 1st round were played Thursday, 2nd round were played Saturday.  If you look at Sweet 16, they're both played on the same day.  The other brackets have 1 games each day.
