You guys thought I was nuts for picking NC State to the Elite 8, but given what we've seen so far in the tournament, was it really that nuts?

I mean, it's not like you saw UVa, Mich St, UNC, and Cincy to be out in the first weekend, huh?

This has been an ugly tournament.  Exciting, but ugly.

But I'm leading my very big office pool and have more possible points remaining than anyone other than one person.

I'm in the top 1.1% of picks nationally, and my South Region is officially dead to me with no possible points left.

It may not be pretty elsewhere, but, you might want to check my bracket for those two. ;)

Down to Stophro and me.

I'm leading my big office pool.

But we are back to the basics of somebody needs to beat Dook.

Some serious fun last night -

Loyola-Chicago couldn't miss in the second half, until suddenly Nevada needed another comeback run

Michigan did to A&AM what A&M did to UNC

K State knocks off Kentucky?  Who saw that coming?

And FSU can't win tournament games when they're supposed to, but give them a 9-seed and now they're playing to get into the final four...

I'm not sure I ever remember a tournament that was this nuts.

If you ride with Kansas or Villanova or Duke as your favorites, you're doing ok.  Everyone else is f'ed.
And if you took the leap of faith on Kansas (famous for Bill Self's seed-elimination bingo) or Duke's regularly-inattentive freshmen, it's paying off

it almost seems pointless to post a daily standings up date here as we all watch Airboy pull further away from us in the standings, but I'll get one up after the weekend carnage :-\

K-State is getting school half 8 minutes in second half. Their coach is going ape poop.

If Villanova loses tomorrow, then you may not win.
