Yeah, Sting leading the way. Rumored to be yelling “Don’t stand so close to me”

I lost track of how many times that really short guard from ACU drove the paint and got rejected. He was irritating to watch. Or took an inbounds pass and dribbled right into a trap.

That was a really good game. And even featured my least favorite thing in sports: inbounding team doesn’t have a time out so they throw a shitty pass the length of the court into eight guys and don’t end up even getting a final shot off.

Well, I was right in predicting a lot of upsets.  Unfortunately, I only got half the upsets I picked right.

Purdue and OSU ruined one of my brackets.  I thought it was a couple of good picks (deep) most people in my pool wouldn't have.

About everyone has 10 misses from the first round

Your reminder that since I'm an Ohio U grad, I'm better than all of you who aren't!

I was a bit amped for last night, with the 14% White Russian in a can 4-pack. Black out city, baby! Partied through that game, possibly passed out for a bit and came to just in time to watch Abilene boot Texas.

Ohio State aside, pretty average tournament so far. Upsets here and there. My bracket, like most, is shot. 

Good for OU on the win as well. 

However, betting wise, I'm doing pretty well, 19-15-2. Underdogs, like usual, are doing pretty well.

I missed 10 and 13 games, but in the hunt on one after picking up a bunch of points getting the Abilene upset. 

Have already lost 5 of my sweet 16 on that entry, though.  Not sure I've ever been down that many already even after worst first rounds.

I haven’t looked at my bracket but I’m sure it sucks. Filling them out successfully isn’t as easy as it use to be. You could once automatically pencil in the 1-4 seeds to the next round. Now a handful of them are getting upset in their first games.

Loyola being an 8 seed is probably the worst seeding the committee has done in years.

So, we're on equal footing.

Nah. Loyola was... 8 in KenPom, 9 in NET, 11 in BPI and won regular and conference tournament of a multi-bid league. That’s typically a 4 seed and most had them as a 5. 8 is egregiously bad for that resume.
