Good to know... wasn't planning on registering till I get home.


Might actually do well in this pool. Couldn't name a single college hoops player other than Brandon Paul, and only know his name because of Gus Johnson and hearing that clip a thousand times. Should be a good strategy, idiots in my position win these things a lot of them time.

My strategy is always to pick against the 'house picks'. This pool will be 90% IU fans, so I won't pick them. One in high school I picked Kansas to lose early because everyone liked Kansas because of Julian Wright. Think that was the year they lost to either Bucknell or Bradley, and I had Florida winning it and they did.

I've always just had a think long, think wrong philosophy when it comes to the bracket. I've never taken more than five minutes to fill out a bracket, and it certainly helps that I pay pretty good attention to NCAA hoops so I know a decent amount about each team, so it's not like I'm winging it and only going with the seeding and records.

That's always my issue, I never know **** outside of the Big Ten and top 25, so a lot of them I'm winging it on.

Maybe if hockey didn't exist I'd have more time for college hoops, but then life would be much more crappy.

Fortunately or unfortunately for me, I don't even know who the favorites are. I had no idea Gonzaga was any good (they still a bunch of white boys?) so I picked them to win it all. Also have Mich State in the Final 4. They always manage to overperform in the tourney with Izzo. Didn't really pick any big upsets.


And yeah, that was Bradley (13) that bounce Kansas (4) in the first round.

HOLY ****!

Major AHL quakes incoming....

If true, long story short.... the Nucks will purchase the Peoria Rivermen and move them to Abbotsford to be their affiliate (the Heat are moving to Utica, NY according to reports) and the Blues will affiliate with the Wolves.

Memphis tried to give that game away, 9-18 from the line.

Davidson looking to pull off the upset over Marquette.

We couldn't have had worse foul/time management in the last two minutes before that. Had a few really dumb fouls before that gift from Davidson.

Great comeback by Marquette. Saved at least that game in my bracket for me.

If Davidson had actually hung on and not chocked it away like the Cleveland Cavs I would have been 15-1. Will take 14-2 for day one.

I watched the 2nd half of that game, and it reminded me of one of the reasons I stopped watching basketball. The last 2 minutes of play might have taken 45 ****ing minutes. Timeout, commercial, FT, timeout, commercial, run down the court jack up a terrible 3, timeout, commercial...


Harvard even called back-to-back timeouts trying to inbound the ball. That should result in a turnover or something.
