Well, the first score is in, Wis. Mil. over Oklahoma, and I got it wrong... not a good way of starting out the Tourney.

3 for 3 so far, OU was begging for that upset.

2 for 3 so far... I pretty much flipped a coin on the Seton hall/Wichita St. game since I know nothing of the MVC.... ah well. At least I got UW-M right. If Uconn doesn't lose in the first game, I'm already one step ahead of last year (although I wasn't in this group then).

Only one upset so far, and that wasn't much of an upset. Alabama looks like they might be on the way to upsetting Marquette though.

I hope that doesn't happen, the Big East has already lost Seton Hall (But that WAS expected)

I take it you didn't learn from gloating last year, only to see your picks crash back to Earth?

&%*%#@& !!!!!!

#3 Iowa goes down to #14 Northwestern St ???????? !!!!!!!

I had Iowa making the Elite Eight!

Oh well, it's good news for WVU though. After they beat the first college I ever attended (Southern Ill. Univ.) SIU, they have to get past Northwestern State instead of Iowa to advance to the Sweet Sixteen!

Now I have to root for Penn to upset Texas! That would be awesome! :-) Not much chance of that though.

BtW, could the Big East smell up the tourney any more than they already are?

Not a single tema has advanced as I write this...

Losers :

Seton Hall
Marquette
Syracuse

Georgetown is struggling

The only hopes are:

Pitt
WVU
Conn
'Nova

Wow!

Did anyone keep the final standings from last year?


I was wondering that also, but I am the reigning champ.

The Tournament is shaping up perfectly for a PITT vs UCLA matchup.

If Bradley holds on to beat Kansas, Jamie Dixon has to like his chances to beat them and then face the most overrated team in the country in Memphis.
