    We've been doing this for the past few years and it's been a lot of fun. We'll have an temporary interruption while things get sorted out with the move, so keep your eyes out for the Temp Boards March Madness thread in a few weeks.


    In the mean time, kickoff's about 20 minutes away for the First Four games. Who do you guys have winning tonight? What games and potential match ups do really interest you? Who is going to win it all?


    Let the Madness begin!

    Wisconsin and Marquette both play day games today. Stupid work. Oh well, go Badgers and Golden Eagles.

    I'll only get to watch the noon EST games today...I'm disappointed about that. Still, we're almost at tip off!


    And here we go.

    Rooting for: Murray State
    The Pick: Murray State

    Colorado State's gotten off to a quick start, but it's still really early.

    Kansas State and Southern Miss are in a tight one...Murray State's definitely pulled away from Colorado State. I'm rooting for Southern Miss, but I think that I picked K-State for the Arena bracket.

    Yeah Murray St.!!

    Also, how is the UNC-Ashville/Syracuse game so close right now?

    That Cuse game was agonizing.

    Holy Hell. I was at work and/or driving during the Syracuse game. Finally saw the replay of the blown call on the inbound pass in the final minute. How do you blow that call. That was robbery, pure and simple.

    It probably doesn't make that big of a difference, as UNC-Asheville was still down three and probably could only hoped for OT, and 'Cuse likely wins in OT, but still.


    Little surprising to see 'Zaga straight killing WVU right now.

    Yeah. Great comeback by Wichita and now a great finish. Too bad there's no Gus Johnson for it.

    Baylor just survives the Jackrabbits of South Dakota State. And my eyes have an even closer call with seeing their uniforms.

    Last set of games for the night.

    Cheering for: Ohio State, Indiana, UConn, Colorado

    I'm really surprised at the UConn score right now. Didn't expect them to be down by double digits.

    I correctly picked 13 out of the 16 games today. Missed New Mexico State, Southern Miss, and Colorado State. And I had also selected New Mexico State to win in the next round, so that's another miss for me.

    I'm still stoked that I picked VCU, Colorado and Iowa State to win, though.

    I'm the only one who picked Georgetown to win. So if they win I should win the contest by default. 13 of 16 so far not terrible.

    Didn't you pick Missouri for the bracket challenge?

    Oh you mean to win it all. I thought you were just talking about the one game.

    St. Bonaventure is looking pretty good so far against FSU.
