    Yeah, I think 7 or 8 of the last 10 or 11 winners have been top 10 in offensive/defensive adjustment so I'm rolling with MSU in one and Duke in another. I tend to do 4 brackets every year since the pool I am in has over 600 entries. I also took Nova (They have the easiest path IMO) and Arizona in the 4th one.

    Is this the year we see a 16 seed knock off a 1 seed? There are a couple weak 1 seeds (X,Kansas). One game in particular I am looking at is Penn vs. Kansas. Penn plays a very efficient brand of basketball. IF Kansas' shots arent falling we may see the impossible. big IF though

    Penn has the best chance of any 16 seed in recent memory.


    They were underseeded and Kansas was overseeded.

    That pretty much busts everyone's bracket in the US outside of Baltimore.

    God damn Virginia laid an egg. After hearing about Hunter being out for the tourney I instantly had them losing in every bracket to the winner of Kentucky or Arizona. Did not think for a second they would get destroyed in round 1.

    How are you guys doing in your brackets? I'm 27 for 32 in my main bracket with a big game of Zaga vs Ohio St today.

    My brackets are toast. I had Virginia in at least the Final Four in all of them. I have a $5 bracket left with Gonzaga winning it all that is still in good shape, but it's not a big pot or anything.

    Jimbay Heim stole another win. They didn't deserve to be in the tourney but they are making the most of it.

    Michigan State losing means I officially lost all the money I put into brackets. This year was the most I ever did. I got a lot of invites and accepted most of them. Over $300.

    What about your Gonzaga bracket? You didn't make it a money bracket?

    I still have a shot with my Gonzaga bracket but it's like a $150 pot. My Duke and Nova brackets are long shots, because I had them beating Virginia. These brackets are on 5dimes. I'd need something like Loyola-Chicago, UMBC, or Kansas State to win the South Region and then have Nova or Duke beat the winner to win the pot. At this point I'd rather just have Xavier win the whole thing. I took them at 20-1 for $200. They are over-seeded but I thought I got good value at 20-1.

    Lyles on UMBC has the fire of Kobe Bryant...Dude has killer instinct. He probably becomes a pro and a good one like CJ McCullom did when he took Lehigh to the tournament

    I'll have to check again. Both had Michigan State in the final four, though.

    UNC facing their biggest deficit of the season. Down 20 to Texas A&M.

    one bracket: Cincinnati, Gonzaga, Villanova, and Michigan State, with Michigan State winning it all.

    second: same final four, with Villanova winning it all

    I did have a Gonzaga bracket on ESPN but I didn't enter that into money pools
