      Re: March Madness 2012

      Only about one good game in the night series.

      EDIT: Make it two good games.


      I'm gonna end 14/16 on the day, Montana and Long Beach were my losses. Long Beach is out of the Sweet 16 for me.

        Out of four brackets, I've only lost two Sweet 16 teams, both from the same bracket.

        I'm sure it'll be downhill from here.

          14/16, I only missed Murray St. and Gonzaga and haven't lost any Sweet 16 picks yet. But, I'm not any kind of confident about any of my picks past the first round.

          Also, thank you to WeWantMore for posting the WSJ link. I went almost exclusively by my blindfold picks.

            14/16. I originally picked VCU but changed my mind at the last second. I also missed Colorado (turns out I picked all favorites yesterday - but not today).

              15/16 yesterday, missed out on Colorado. Rebels almost made that miraculous comeback as well.

              I have VCU beating Indiana tomorrow FWIW.

                    I should remember to do a final review of my brackets next time - just realized I accidentally picked Belmont. If I end up losing by a couple points, I'm going to be ****ed.

                      Re: March Madness 2012

                      So here's the latest officiating controversy from FSU-St. Bonaventure:
                      http://deadspin.com/5894076/

                      I honestly didn't know this was a violation. My thinking went along the lines of... St. Bona made the basket, so the FSU player can run the baseline (or even switch inbounders), so is the mere act of stepping over the line a violation, or is it okay so long as he's back behind it when the ball gets thrown in? From the reaction, I'm guessing that's not accurate?

                        12/16 yesterday. Only lost one Sweet 16 team in Wichita St. Although, Mizzou losing will destroy me.

                            Kinda funny, isn't it? Upsets are what make the tourney so exciting, yet when they happen we're all pizzed because our brackets die a miserable death...
                            If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?
