Is it really that hard? All of the 5s and 6s should win handily. You pick an 11 or 12 because you want to have fun and gamble, but if you want to play the percentages, it's 5s and 6s.

"Walking Schwindel, smart move."


I feel like my bracket is pretty wild in the first round, and then crazy chalk going into the sweet sixteen. Seems like the top 4 seeds in most regions have a pretty clear path.

Then the wheels come way off so I don't feel bad about my early chalk

There's no shame for me if KU loses in the Elite Eight like they do every year as long as it is to MSU or Duke. That's a good season for this group.

And they're loving stacked next year.

If you know what to look for you can usually figure out which ones are ripe for the upset though. Minnesota/MTSU last year being a prime example I can think of off the top of my head.

And now the whole nation - pulpit and all - will take up the war-cry, and shout itself hoarse, and mob any honest man who ventures to open his mouth; and presently such mouths will cease to open.

My bracket was really good last year, it turns out watching a bunch of college basketball, even if you are pretty much ignoring the scores and all the players you aren't watching is pretty decent prep. This year isn't going to be as good because I only got to scouting around 8 players. Having a job that starts at 8:30 AM limits time to watch basketball all night apparently.

Same.

Though my bracket gets real weird real quick for me. Resulted in TTU winning rematches vs WVU and KU on the way to a finals matchup vs Gonzaga...

A favorite of mine is Drunk's Primo Bracket who, despite putting two teams in the final, and assigning them a score, forgot to actually click one of the teams, and therefore selected no one to win the tournament.

My bracket is doing badly but it's not my fault because I picked who should win the games and if the teams gently caress that up then that's on them not on me. Your blood is on your own hands, Miami.

People were telling me that AZ would beat VA for the final four spot. Whoops. I think itís VA vs. TN in the elite 8 now.
