Hawkwing, you sly dog. Only one in the group to get that one right.

EDIT: After half of the 2nd round (I don't count those stupid play-in games) my bracket is a disaster. Let's hope Yahoo does their usual Second Chance brackets once the Sweet 16 is set.

FWIW, I thought that was the worst coached game I have ever seen Bill Self coach.

My Cyclones lost Georges Niang Friday to a broken foot. Going to be a tough game against NC without him today.

That's three teams from the SEC through to the sweet 16.

Yeah I got Dayton in the Sweet 16, who couldv'e predicted that? I didn't predict it either, it was blind luck. And 2 of my Final Four are eliminated.

Wow that Iowa State/North Carolina game was intense!

And Dayton taking out 'Cuse broke the last billion-dollar bracket.

EDIT: Seems like Yahoo isn't doing the 2nd chance bracket thing this year. May have to look at other platforms as football season gets closer.

Another definition of March Madness. I wasn't smart enough to think of this one at the time.

This is the fourth year in a row that the Gators have played in the Elite 8. Let's hope that they make it to the Final 4 this time.

I will love it if the Flyers can keep up UF's streak of making it to the Elite 8 but not the Final 4. I'm cheering for an All-Midwest Final 4 (UD, Wisconsin, UM (gag) MSU). If only my Buckeyes hadn't sucked this year it could have been an All-Big Ten Final 4.

The Gators have already played five games against the three other teams in the Final 4 this season.

Lost by 6 at Wisconsin on November 12.
Lost by 1 at Connecticut on December 2.
Won by 10 at Kentucky on February 15.
Won by 19 hosting Kentucky on March 8.
Won by 1 against Kentucky on March 16.
33-0 against all other teams this season.

Let's hope that they can win two more games.

As an OSU fan, it hurts me to say this, but: I can't believe UM lost that game.

Mine is still worse than yours. I haven't done many pools over the years, probably less than 10, but I think 46 points is the worst I ever had.
