Nova over Virgina, went chalk

Lots of people picking Loyola to make sweet sixteen so i picked them to lose to Miami.

Interested how this Fast Break feature works on the the CBS March Madness App. Looks like it is very similar to Red Zone.

UVA over Duke in one, over Florida in the other. NMSU and Mizzou to sweet 16. South Dakota St, Loyola, and Cuse with 1st round wins.

I appreciate that the stream is only 18 seconds behind live TV(at least for TEN/Wright St) so less chance of box score spoilers on top of TV.

Kansas over Carolina in the title game, Purdue and UVA in the Final Four, Loyola in the Sweet 16, Syracuse, St. Bonaventure, South Dakota State and New Mexico State each to win once.

I didn't watch much this year, so a lot of my picks are just based on what I don't want to have happen since that's what most of this season has been, and the rest is mostly chalk.

I don't see how anyone can pick Purdue past the 2nd round given their long history of disappointing exits. I realize that they've looked good but I've seen that movie too many times.

I had UVA winning it but changed it after their injury news. '

This Fast Break stream seems like a good idea, but they keep cutting to like 5 minute long studio segments and they rarely double box it. I think I'd rather just flip between games at my own leisure.

It would've been a lot more interesting of an idea if we were in the dark days of local CBS airing just 1 game at a time.

Loyola's win marks the 10th straight round of 64 win for MVC teams.

Wow how bad is the Pac-12? 2 of their 3 tourney teams lost in the first 4, and the last one lost by 21 points to a 13 seed in the first round.

First major conference to not have a single team in the final 32 since the Big 12 formed in 1996-97.

I imagine in the preseason Miller channeled his inner Jeff Fisher on Hard Knocks and told his team "I'm not horsefeathering losing in the Elite 8 again. This team is too talented." Well, you didn't lose in the Elite 8 again, Sean.

I think Villanova and MSU are the best teams. I had Virginia deep, but I didn't realize whatshisname got injured.

I have a cousin (related: He's rich as hell) who annually goes on the first weekend with some college friends of his.

I sincerely hope that Michael Porter Jr. is only 65% healthy like he's said because he looks terrible. Slow moving, shot is off, and worst of all his decision making is horrible.
