It's that time of the year gang - and even now a number of you are itching to play for the internal glory of bragging rights that no-one here will suffer well - but will quietly admire when you land at the top of the heap.

I think I finished well last year. I'm taking Villanova to repeat. Because it's my alma mater. And nobody else will take them all the way. Much disrespect from all the talking heads. Everyone is picking Duke. Bring 'em on!!
Good Luck

don't be afraid to go with your gut -- the more you agonize - the more you screw it up

It hurt me terribly to not pick Maryland for the National Champion. I probably have them going a round more than they actually will though. Oh, and I have LOT'S of practice screwing things up. LOL. Thanks for setting this up!

ok we have our 24

In the top menu - the far right selection is "Printable Brackey"
if you select that a savable/printable PDF appears of your brackets with your selections

Little bit of a slip from Thursday's 15-1

The only one that stings is SMU, although the Marquette loss is irritating.
That loud sound you just heard...

Nope. It doesn't.
the Nova gods need some live sacrifices

if Nova goes down -- our whole pool gets thrown into disarray
OK - just so you Nova fans can commiserate  
gidiefor : Mod : 3/18/2017 5:25 pm : link
half of you had Nova in the Final - a third of you had them winning the final
3 of my 4 Final Four teams are now gone...  
tony stg : 3/19/2017 2:56 pm : link
... in the round of 32. Kiss of death for UNC?

Also, maybe the B1G was a little better than folks gave them credit for?

Actually, I would think the multiple people picking Villanova to win it all would be worse than just one person picking ND to win it all.

Just sayin'
