    Everybody was calling it the weakest region :p

    EDIT: Oh, Sam Houston State now leading [face_laugh]

    Richmond-St. Mary's is about to tip.

    The Pick: Richmond
    Cheering for: Richmond

    Best Case Scenario: Richmond plays well, builds confidence, and uses it as a springboard to destroy 'Nova next round.

    Louisville can give Duke a good fight.

    Oh, I agree. I'm worried about Duke meeting Louisville in the second round [face_worried]

    Having reassessed my bracket, I've just realised that I should be saying "Go Murray State!"

    I don't have Vandy in the Sweet 16, so I can afford a loss there if Murray State pulls it out.

    Man, that Bobby Mo - Nova game was great. I'm really proud of the way they played.

    Time to get MMOD rolling...

    What's up with Baylor? Anyone watching that one?

    Down one at the half... another very surprising game so far. To me, at least.

    Murray State up 5, almost midway through the second half.

    The Murray State game is more stressful than Villanova, I'm finding.

    Baylor now up 4.

    I don't know... out of Villanova/Vandy, I'll take Villanova, generally. But I am pulling for Vandy and I did pick Vandy. Just not in the second round.

    The Baylor game is one of few games where I will not be pulling for an upset. Baylor has not had much historical success and would like to see them do well.

    So far, the Kansas State game is the only game that's going the way it would be expected, with the seeds.

    Meanwhile, it looks like Kansas State is in control right now. First team in that position so far.

    Kansas State has a larger lead than the point difference of the first three games combined, I believe.

    I think that Robert Morris game really took the wind out of my sails. I'm just not as into the Vandy or Baylor games. Maybe as they draw closer to ending ...

    As I've got Murray State over Vanderbilt, I'm enthused for this one.

    Can't take another thriller, Inty?

    It probably feels odd going from watching the last second finishes and OT thrillers right back to the middle of a game, without the immediate pressure. Heck, I can feel that to a lesser extent and I can't even watch the games right now!

    And Vanderbilt gets the lead back now. Dang it.

    Sam Houston State's tied up Baylor, though.

    Starting to get into this Murray State game. It's not the magnitude of the 2-15 upset, and that's part of it. But a crazy game brewing here ...

    Murray State was a trendy pick, I picked Vandy because I thought they were pretty good. I have them going to sweet 16. I should have known better, they lost to South Carolina.

    So did Kentucky, you may recall :)

    Murray State now up 2 with 2 and a half minutes to go.

    Yep, it's taken a little time to get into this next round of games. Bobby Mo took a lot of emotional energy.
