    I am 14-2 half way through the first round :), missing only Maryland and Baylor.

    Final Four are Kentucky. Duke, Michigan and either NC or Tennessee (I'll have to look it up at home), with UK winning it all.

    Good start. Two things that I remember about last year's tournament were:

    -UMBC #16 beating #1 Virginia by TWENTY points. Incredible effort from UMBC.
    -Derek Stevens betting $25,000 at 40-1 that Michigan would win it all. Michigan
    lost in the final game. He would hedge part of his bet while missing out on the $1,000,000 hit.

    I was wondering when someone was going to start a thread for the tournament you guys both have a strong final four picks I like Limans Zags winning it all for the reason Onautopilot had a soft spot in his heart for that team its always a fun time to watch good luck to you both in your picks ;)

    At least Stevens was smart enough not to bet big on Michigan football.

    Kentucky struggled the entire game, it was good for them one of Wofford's(never heard much about this school) 3 point shooters went something like 0-13 on three pointers today.
    maybe the backboard was too bouncy, or the ball wasn't inflated right, or the floor was too slippery, or the air conditioning vents were blowing right above the basket ruining the correct trajectory, OH WAIT, its not basketball influencing, its just shitty shooting.

    north Carolina just totally busted my brackets, but 3/4 of the country had them going to the elite 8 and further,
    even if Gonzaga goes all the way I wouldn't win with my group.
    NC get their asses whipped. seems they underestimated the power of the 3 point shot.

    I was doing great until today, losing both NC and LSU. Have Duke and Kentucky in the 2 late games, but I'm toast.

    I think they were down 4 at halftime. Auburn reeled off the first 15 points to start the 2nd half. I was watching the Michigan game at the same time but I don't think NC ever recovered from the abysmal 2nd half start.
