So far the last four games are looking good for me, but look at Kansas losing at the half. Need them to wake up!!!
Let Kansas lose! I have them going out soon to VCU anyway. Might as well make VCU's road to the elite 8 easier.

Saw a stat briefly on espn yesterday or possibly wednesday that a 2 seed has gone out by the round of 32 in something like 12 of the last 14 years? Something around that. Pretty crazy how prone to upsets they are, even if not in the 2-15 match.

And we almost had a 1 go down yesterday with Gonzaga/Southern. It was pretty tight for a lot longer than expected.

My worst first round since I started doing brackets, and I'm in 6th place in my pool. My 2nd round is going to be rough though. Only have nine sweet 16 teams left. Gotta hope they all hit and play out the elite 8.

Someone in my girlfriend's bracket group called FGCU over Georgetown. The person has FGCU winning it all.

I'm beyond myself.

Same here. And its glorious. Last year was the first year I was actually able to watch all of it. I pulled myself away from the TV mid day friday to visit a friend briefly for their birthday. I felt so out of place away from a TV for like 20 minutes. Thankfully we were just hanging out at his house so I was able to get one turned on so I could watch some games.

While I agree from what I've been watching, its irrelevant. VCU can't hit a shot and their defense has been way too weak to keep them in it. The calls they are (or are not) getting isn't the reason this game is what it is. And its killing my bracket too, so screw this.

Before this game, Indiana winning it all and Ohio State not getting past the sweet 16 was essentially going to guarantee me winning one of my pools. Now that VCU was bounced, I think I need Michigan to beat Kansas. Only 1-2 teams with Indiana winning it all have them in the elite 8. Still need the Ohio State thing. May need a little help past that, but its something.

So far so good today, but need Michigan State to pull this game out right now.

I am surprised how much I am starting creep to towards the top of the pool.

So Indiana and Ohio State scared the crap out of me today but so far so good. No problem with Zaga getting upset as I only had them up to the sweet 16 anyway. Not shocked at all they are gone.

2nd round has gone as well as it could so far for me. All of the sweet 16 teams I had left have hit, and the games where I was going to lose ground have seen the lesser of two evils win.

Just need Miami and Duke to win their games and I'll be in pretty good shape heading forward.

While I can't afford for any of my sweet 16 teams to falter, Kansas vs Michigan is going to be a huge game when it comes to decided who wins this pool. I am one of the few with Kansas in the Final 4, while the guy in 1st has Michigan there. His bracket is toast if Kansas wins.

Still need Louisville, Ohio State, and Indiana to take care of their business as well.

I usually just compare my bracket against those with the same champ as me. Pretty much what it comes down to anyway. It's going to come to MSU vs Louisville and Cuse vs Indiana for me to win. Need MSU and IU. We both have Kansas over OSU in the finals.
