    I'm pretty lax on these freebie brackets and I'm a total homer in them, so I have UNC over Kansas in the final with Roy Williams sending the Kansas faithful into fits of frustration. But in my "money brackets" I actually have Kansas winning it all.

    T A&M CC over Wisocnsin
    ??? Wow
    Wright State over Pitt
    Bit of a stretch, but ok..
    ODU over Butler
    Agree
    VCU over Duke
    I think Duke's good wins have been forgotten by a lot of people, so I think Duke takes this game before probably losing to Pitt
    winthrop over Notre Dame
    Agree
    Villanova over Kentucky
    8-9 = not an upset.

    I changed mine today, but I don't remember what I changed them to. I think I have Kansas winning it all now. [face_worried]

    Not a bad start, 13 of 16, only had ODU, Duke and Texas Tech wrong. Was going to pick VCU over DUke, but just couldn't see them losing in the first round. Very happy to be wrong. More importantly for my bracket, no big losses, only had ODU upsetting Maryland to make it to the sweet 16 before losing to Fla, both Duke and TT losing in the second round.

    Now let's go Irish!

    Losing a sweet 16 isn't so bad, I lost one too (ODU). Heck, one year, when Kerry Kittles was at Villanova, I had them going all the way and they lost in the first round. THAT hurt.

    A pretty good first day for almost everyone in this pool. Minus the one bracket that had Belmont going pretty far. :p

    My problem is that I had ORU going to the sweet 16. Stupid pick.

    Losing a Sweet 16 pick in the first round is usually not fatal. Great 8 picks are a different story.

    I've got four "real" brackets (not counting the one I did by flipping a coin), and in all of them, I've only lost 1 sweet 16 team so far. And that was Notre Dame. Not bad, so far, not bad at all. And I only had that in one of the four brackets.

    Sure beats the years I've lost a final four team in the opening round.

    Not a bad first round for me, one of my better ones. The sweet sixteen is in tact, and 26/32 right in the first round. If I can keep this up, I might not have to hand out colors. :p
