    Default March Madness!

    I'm looking good on pick of UW-Milwauke over Alabama so far. Actually I have them beating BC in the second round too! Also nice that a lot of the games are in HD this year.

    I think Alabama will come back in this one. Wis-Milwaukee can't keep hitting 3's like that can they? 9 for 14 so far?

    I was thinking that too, but both teams have really been shooting lights out.

    I'm crying like a little school girl. I didn't get to see it, but from the way it sounded, maybe that's better.

    Congrats to Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

    Don't know how long this will work, but, if you enter anything at ALL for an email / pass at this site you can get the March Madness games streamed to your PC.

    Not the best quality, but ... something for those of you at work :)
    If you will it, dude, it is no dream.

    Wooo! The UWM Panthers won. I have them beating BC, but I have them losing to Illinois, unfortunately.

    Bruce Pearl is going to have a nice pick of coaching jobs at a major program next year.

    Sad to see him go, but he's a great guy and an amazing coach.

    I'm guessing a lot of brackets will be busted if the current scores hold! Two 14's and a 15 lead!

    unreal so far, great games everywhere, seeding doesn't mean much, as noted 14's and 15's scaring the hell out some 2's and 3's

    Oh yea my brackets are a mess after the first 8 games this afternoon 4-4.

    I have a feeling it will only get worse tonight.

    Hell of a show so far.

    Wintrop was holding tough in the first half... i was actually a bit scared there. Second half was mostly Gonzaga.

    No ****. I'm underwhelmed by Illinois' performance tonight. VERY sloppy. They need to clean their act up, or they're going home early...

    SE Louisiana is closing thing up against Okie State. Only down 6 with 11 minutes to go!

    Iowa State is hanging on by 8, and NC State-Charlotte is coming down to the wire.

    Man the Ohio-Florida game has had an exciting finish! I stopped paying attention to it when Ohio was down 20.

    yeah, what was up with that. 34-11 at the half. That was just disgusting.
    I had NM upsetting Nova too.

    Oooooo, I did pick Vermont over Syracuse as a long shot. things may be looking up after all.

    Wild weekend for sure
    I got 9 of the sweet 16, but had Wake Forrest in the final game, and Uconn going to the Elite Eight,

    Our company pool is only 75.00 total winner takes all, how much are the pools you guys are in worth?

    As an Illinois fan, nothing was sweeter than watching Bill Self crash and burn.

    Some heavy hitters out of the picture early - Wake, Gonzaga, Syracuse, UConn...

    Yeah my bracket is junk now. I had Kansas to the Elite 8 (I did love watching them lose though!) and Wake and Florida in the Final Four.

    I'm in the ESPN.com contest... or more accurrately I enterred it. $10,000 grand prize...

    Best I did through first weekend was two entries that are around the 85th percentile... only 410,000 or so that outpointed me.

    Hell of a tourney so far. Really looking forward to the Sweet 16... Unfortunately CBS/ NCAA did not see fit to schedule so that all the games could be seen. Washington/ Loiusville is not a featured game here...
    More later,
