    Another installment of March Madness demands another Live Chat thread.

    Or, at least DMC demanded it.

    In any case, here it is.

    Sparty and Valpo are getting us kicked off. Sparty, thee of Izzo's March Magic against Valpo, and one of the greatest buzzer beaters of all time:



    How was that fifteen years ago?

    In any case - the pick, the root, here is for Sparty.

    Butler-Bucknell underway and a low scoring affair halfway through the first. I think Butler scrapes through, looking good on defense so far.

    Sparty is put a beatdown on Valpo. holy hell.

    Butler-Bucknell is off to a slow, sluggish start. Picking/Rooting for Butler.

    Seems like MSU is pulling away as expected. Butler Bucknell is fairly tight early.

    Butler up seven now, threatening to start to pull away. Could be an excitement-free start to the tournament.

    Well, it is less emotionally draining that way. Hopefully we'll have more drama this afternoon.

    Wow. Sparty is just ridiculous right now. So ridiculous, in fact, Valpo should have brought a boggart.

    Wow, the Butler-Bucknell score is looking like a high school score at the moment.

    Pitt-Wichita State just tipped.

    The Pick: Pitt
    Rooting for: Wichita State
    Hoping for: Awkward photos of people giving the shocker symbol

    So - I've got Sparty-Valpo on the TV, Butler-Bucknell on the Tablet, and Pitt-Shockers on the Computer. Life is good.

    Sparty through to the next round.

    Bucknell-Butler has tightened up. Bucknell went on a run and took the lead, now Butler is on a run and has retaken the lead. Too bad this game can't have Gus Johnson

    Hm, that game is getting interesting. Too bad it's not on TV.

    NMSU-St. Louis has just tipped, too

    The Pick: St. Louis
    Rooting for: St. Louis
    Hoping for: No over-the-top sappy tributes to Rick Majerus.

    Butler pulls away in the end and is off to the second (in my world) round.

    Memphis-St. Mary's just tipped.

    The Pick: Memphis
    Rooting for: Memphis
    Hoping for: Angst-filled Memphis fans to break twitter with anti-Calipari tweets

    When you only have network TV, it doesn't. ;)

    Wish St Mary's had pulled the upset but Davidson looks like it will.

    Marquette/Davidson was crazy. My bracket is still intact.

    Believe it or not, that's wasn't a slight to Wisconsin. :p


    And, oh, what a stomach punch for Davidson.

    So, Southern is down by 3 to Gonzaga with 2 minutes to play, was just down by 1. Hmm.

    I think most have picked Gonzaga as the first 1 seed to be beaten.

    Not this smart guy. I've got them winning it all in my work bracket. [face_frustrated]
