March Madness

Recommended Posts

Who do you think is going to win?

I am a Jayhawks fan........so I am rooting for my Hawks!!!

Jayhawk Prayer

Our Father, who art in Lawrence,

Hallowed be thy Game.

Thy tourney come,

Thy championship will be done, In Atlanta as it is in Allen Field House.

Give us this day our deserved victories.

And forgive us our turnovers,

As we forgive Roy who double-crossed against us.

And lead us not into defeat,

But deliver us from East Coast bias,

For Kansas is the basketball kingdom,

And the tradition,

And the glory,

For ever and ever.

Amen.

I'm a big march madness fan... I like the NFL over college hoops but this is the best sports weekend of the year in my opinion..

and I actually picked kansas to win it all this year in my bracket... I've never really liked kansas or kentucky (call it that east coast bias) but kansas is playing great ball recently, played in an underrated big 12 that has 3 of the 7 teams I think are capable of winning it all... they're also playing great defense, have experienced players and all 5 guys in their starting lineup are capable of putting up double digit points... I know they got upset the first round the past 2 years but AZ was knocked off first round as high seeds left and right in the mid 90s before winning it all with bibby and co.

my final 4's got kansas, florida, georgetown, and texas a&m... gonna be tough for georgetown to come out of their bracket with UNC and Texas but they shouldn't really be challenged until the elite 8... my big upset teams are notre dame and gonzaga going to the elite 8... though I could easily see ND going down to winthrop the first round

a little too similar.. I also picked georgetown to advance to the final game... identical final 4 actually

I feel it's only fair to let you know that I don't think I've picked the winner in years... I was much better at this when I was a kid (I picked the winner 7 straight years until AZ won)... so you can blame me if your final 4 teams start getting upset B)

This is the 1st bracket I've ever filled out. A friend invited me to a pool on facebook, so I did it :)

But I'll blame you for any losses anyways ;)

OMG!!!! The Duke/ VCU game was crazy. VCU deserved the win.

I have a VERY VERY VERY happy husband and household right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GO RAMS!

VCU did a great job. Maybe Duke got a bit cocky after years of being the big dog.

UNC plays tonight and can't stay awake for that one....Go them Heels!!

duke's just not that good this year... they played above themselves for a stretch early in conference play but the talent just isn't there for the most part... and one of the few players on the team with talent, demarcus nelson, has been an underachiever this year.. not to take anything away from VCU cause Mayner's a gamer but this is the worst duke team I've seen in a long time... they looked lost at times.. paulus was driving, had an open layup, and didn't even look to shoot as he kicked it out all the way across court almost causing a turnover...

as for UNC, I'm pretty sure they should be able to eak out a first round victory...

I used to be a tarheels fan back with donald williams, george lynch, montross, calabria, etc. but now I just tend to root for underdogs and good games..

Three Va teams left. VCU needs to control tempo today. Virginia/Tennessee should not need a shot clock. Va Tech/Southern Ill (low scoring) and this may come down to making free throws. All three teams have excellent guards.

the buckeyes barely escaped with a W.. but that's what the tourney's about.. gotta finish the deal... Xavier got a little tentative down the stretch and missed some key free throws... and gotta give credit to Lewis or whoever hit that big 3 from the top of the key to tie the game at the end of regulation..

texas A&M vs. Memphis should be a good game tomorrow... and I'd like to see the Salukis give Kansas a run for their money though I don't think it's gonna be all that close...

I (along with most college hoops fans) was hoping to see Texas vs UNC but unfortunately Texas got bounced by USC... UNC vs. Georgetown could still be a pretty good game if both teams win this round..

I picked georgetown to come out of that bracket but I think UNC's probably gonna beat them... jeff green's been playing great ball down the stretch for the hoyas and they don't have many flaws in their game on offense or defense but I think UNC's gonna have a little too much for them... and I figure with this prediction, if either team wins, I should be covered...

UNC fell apart in overtime. It was so uncharacteristic of the team. I guess they were worn out and too much pressure. Georgetown play a good game. Too bad that they are out of the final four.
