    OSU and Wake losing ruined me, so I'll be observing in the rest of my comp I think. :(

    Anyone want me to set up a second chance bracket? We could do 24 hours of colors for it ...

    Mine wouldn't be very different, but I'd be up for doing it anyways :p

    Second chance is set up. Same info as the original.

    Changed a couple of picks for the 2nd chance. Maybe I can not suck as bad in this one.

    Unless a miracle somehow happens, I'm done for in the game. Hopefully the Second Chance will be nicer to me.

    So for the heck of it, and because I enjoy creating brackets for some weird reason, I have 7 brackets on ESPN's Tourney Challenge. None of them are my "real" bracket, which is the one submitted for this group, but regardless... out of those 7, only one is currently in the top 60% of brackets on there. [face_plain]

    That's really, really sad.

    I need Syracuse to win.

    Darn didn't get into second chance bracket due to the stupid flu. 102 temp. Feeling better today though.

    Good games last night, looking forward to the games tonight.

    Well, if MSU goes down tonight against my beloved Jayhawks then I am doomed. I'll be glad because KU continues to play but I'll definitely lose the bracket.

    I'm hating my Second-chance bracket right now.

    Yeah, my second chance bracket is kind of screwed. Using the scenario generator, the best I can do there is 2nd. However, it has given me hope for my main bracket, I still have a chance there. If Louisville can beat UNC for the championship, that would be terrific.

    I need both #1s to fall today, since I have Michigan State and Oklahoma both in the Final Four :p

    ...of course, the best I can do is 2nd, even in that scenario, but second is better than tenth.

    Number of us who predicted more than half the Final Four correctly: zero. Also, 13 of us combined to go 12/52 on Final Four picks :p

    We'll know the winner of the original bracket game tonight: if Nova wins, then -polymath- will finish in first; if UNC wins, Trika takes over. Monday's game could change the score, but not the order.

    EDIT: Go -polymath- :p :D

    I chose very poorly on both brackets.
