Write up a proposal and sell me on it for next year.

Seriously. If there's a better platform than Yahoo that has wide acceptance from those playing, I'll gladly move it.

Boo-Yah Jerry!!!

I picked the right 12-5 upset as Yale just knocked off Baylor. I also have them knocking off Duke.

1 Samuel 17: A champion named Goliath, who was from Michigan State, came out of the Big10 camp. He was over nine feet tall....Now David... was from Middle Tennessee State in C-USA.... Then he... chose five smooth stones from the stream, put them in the pouch of his shepherd's bag and, with his sling in his hand, approached the Philistine.....As the Philistine moved closer to attack him, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet him. Reaching into his bag and taking out a stone, he slung it and struck the Philistine... The stone sank into his forehead, and he fell facedown on the ground.

:o Wow! There goes one of my finals picks. :oops:

So far, I've gotten 7 of the 12 Sweet 16 participants correct. Most of my elite 8 is still standing (except Mich. State) including all of my final 4. Huzzah.
