Same here but 16-0 is still 16-0. I'm fully expecting a 9-7 day tomorrow with a Final Four team or a couple Elite 8 teams getting bounced.



Yup sounds about right for me too

Quick, get a job with Berkshire Hathaway and make your start date retroactive to March 15th.

I was 15-1, with my one loss picking Princeton to beat ND which was one made 3 away from happening.



Yeah saw that, He is offering any of his employees a Billion dollars for a perfect bracket, or a million dollars for life for a perfect sweet 16, or a million dollar one time payment for a perfect 1st round.

There's someone on Oklahoma State's bench who keeps yelling Boozer-type stuff but is always wrong. Entertaining.

Spread was Michigan -2.5 for that game also so the garbage 3 at the end flipped the result on that.

That was a terrible flagrant call


And I don't feel like I can comment on that UM game yet. My heart is still trying to get back down to resting rate.

Same here. 27-1 now if Marquette wins I should finish first round 31-1. SMU losing will also cost me as I had them in sweet 16

Same here. I need Marquette to get to 31-1. Missed VCU-St. Mary's.

If South Carolina wins and UCLA avoids an upset I'd finish with 30/32 and all my sweet 16 teams alive. If SMU could have won and I would have picked Minnesota to lose like everyone else seemed too than I'd have a perfect bracket going. I'll take it though.

Well, that has to be the dullest first round I can recall, personal feelings aside.

Seems like everyone has great brackets this year probably because the lack of major upsets. Only 5 double digit seeds advanced. MTSU and Wichita St were favored, not sure but Xavier might have been favored over Maryland too, URI over Creighton was a popular upset pick. Only USC over SMU was any level of surprising but even that isn't that shocking.

I'm 28-4 and lost only SMU from sweet 16. I think this weekend might kill a lot of those nice looking brackets. The games I lost: Princeton missed last second 3 to win, SMU missed last second shot to win, Seton Hall got screwed by iffy flagrant call in a 1 point game and Marquette blown out by South Carolina

Yeah, I had a good feeling there wouldn't be many upsets so just went with a lot of chalk and here we are. I agree that the second round is where the chaos happens. This is by far the best bracket I've ever had and I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop. This doesn't feel right!

I usually go closer to chalk but decided to "call" some upsets, I just guessed the wrong ones.
