And huge numbers of brackets are broken beyond repair after the first round.  Let chaos reign!

All of my round of 8 teams have survived so far - except for UVA which I had going to the finals.  On that I guess that I and half the country were "a little off."

Two of my round of 8 are out, Arizona and Wichita State.  One of my final 4 is also out, Wichita State.  So the top half of my bracket is decimated.

The bottom half of my bracket is in good shape.  I was perfect in the West so far.

Yep, they're doing it in April, and you have to have your order placed between 1130am and 1pm.  Even if you're in line by 1pm, if you don't place your order it's not free.

LC is going to be a ZOO that day.

I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think anyone but Airboy can win at this point, b/c the only points MD can pick up, Airboy would, too

I s'pose it's possible for OJsDad to catch up, but 'Nova would have to lose really soon, and MichSt win it all

The ESPN system is heavily back weighted. If Michigan State even makes it to the finals and loses the title game Villanova does not make it to the finals, OJs Dad will win.

At this moment the final 4 picks still alive for everyone are:

Brant - UNC & Villanova
OJs Dad - Michigan
Stophro - Xavier, Villanova & Dook
Airboy - Michigan & Villanova

What a massacre.

That'll last about another 8 minutes...

UNC is in trouble
