TR March Madness 2008

Tue Mar 04, 2008 1:09 am

Here's the poop for this year's Yahoo fantasy brackets:

Group Name: [TR] BucketHeads
Group ID: 20548
Password: damage

Have at boys & girls.
And then of course I've got this terrible pain in all the diodes down my left hand side.

Gratzi!

Figured I'd get peoples' heads into it somewhat early.

I'd join, but I don't have my team to vote on as definite wins. I'm just hoping we'll make it :lol:

If my bracket can do anywhere close to as well as it did last year I'll be thrilled.

Based on the principle of Fantasy Football, I will surely win it all because I know and care the least about college basketball.

Could be worse. You could be down a final four team like slyferret.

Picking an 11 seed for the Final Four is pure homeboyism at best. :wink:

Ahh, I hate I missed this thread. I would have love to join in with you guys. So far I'm doing okay in my ESPN bracket. No upsets in the tournament just yet. Glad Michigan State made it out the first round, unfortunately I don't think they'll beat Pittsburgh.

Already knocked down to 300,000th place :P

So far so good, only one upset.

Just to see what would happen, I joined one league and had all the highest seeds winning and in another I had all the lowest seeds winning.

Either that, or he didn't see any Kentucky games this year. :roll:

And SlyFerret loses another of his Final Four. I may not come in last again this year.

Looks like Vandy is going down as well. My boss (a Siena grad) will be over the moon.

My bracket's a mess. I knew going in that I hadn't watched enough hoops this year to have a feel for even a quarter of the teams.

x2. I think I watched more NBA this year than ever before but for some reason the college game didn't appeal to me as much.

Probably because half the people that would be dominating college basketball elected to jump to the NBA after a year.

We went to our basketball game last night. It's actually the first men's basketball game I've ever been to. What a great time!

brackets aside, it makes my heart sing to see Duke walk off the floor with their heads down. Its just a shame that its to a Class A tool like Bob Huggins.

That was pretty sweet. It's amazing Duke won that game in the first round.
