It's really sad... I had 6 of the 8 teams correct going into the Elite 8... now I have 1 team left (UCLA). How ridiculous is that?
Given that there were 65 teams and probably 60 of them had more "juice" than GM, I'm surprised the odds weren't longer.
If I was a GM student struggling to make tuition, I *kill* myself for not placing a small bet
