    March Madness

    Ok, it's that time of year again. I know there's the other thread on NCAA ball, but I figure we should have one devoted strictly to the tournament.

    Picks? Thoughts?

    I haven't finalized my picks yet, but I'll get them up when I do.

    There's a cool fantasy game on Yahoo that let's you pick the winners. Hopefully I'll do well on that, but I doubt it, lol.

    I'm pulling for Alabama. I think they can win a couple, but then will get matched against Illinois and lose. :/

    It sucks that all 3 of my favourite teams are in the Albequerque region: UW, GT, and Gonzaga. Hopefully, one of them can make it out of there.

    'Bama will probably be in tough in the second round against Boston College. I think BC will win that game, but either way, neither of them are beating Illinois.

    I'd LOVE to see them get knocked out early, but it probably isn't going to happen .

    I don't really follow college basketball but I still hope Washington wins it all, it would be nice to see a local team win something for a change. All of our pro teams blow.

    Someone let me know if this has already been done, but if not; I've set up a WWB group on Yahoo if you guys want to drop your bracket in and compete with the other members.

    I joined up. I made my picks for now, but I think I'll still change some of them.

    Yeah UW...ranked #1...they play Montana this Thursday, but do they really have a chance against Illinois? ...lets hope so.

    I say Illinois vs. NC in the finals

    NC being the victor.

    Uconn Repeats
    Syracuse
    Wake
    Illinois


    Villanova will upset Florida and NC, Duke will get stomped by Syracuse and the ACC still won't concede that the Big East is the dominant conference.

    I'm in..understand that I watch some ball, but I don't know much outside of the big east and ACC..there is no rhyme or reason to my picks really, and I have ultimate faith in GT and UAB.

    U dub got the number 1 seed, I don't really see them winning it, but I can see them making a good run.

    I think Fairleigh Dickenson will upset Illinois first round and go on to win the tourney

    I think UAB had their time to shine last year in that little mini-run they put together in the tourney.

    GT, on the other hand, I'm right there with you.

    I'm having a tough time with the Syracuse bracket (who isn't); but I just can't trust Carolina, especially if McCants is only playing 20 min a game.....Kansas has been playing badly.........UConn lost too many key players......and Florida hasn't made it out of the first weekend since the days of "Gamblin" Teddy Dupay.

    The only thing to remember about Kansas is, this is the first time they have had their team at 100% since around January.

    I guess Kansas isn't a bad pick, but I have already picked too many upsets as it is (I have no #1s in the final four).
