So how are your brackets doing?

Post  Scooby01_98 on Fri Mar 19, 2010 11:30 am

Got lazy and only did one bracket for the tourney this year. After the first day still have 12 out of 16 teams left. I went with a few of the upsets like Murray State and St Mary's. Really disappointed in Notre Dame and Georgetown out of the Big East. My fault for not picking Wake Forest I should have known better.

If I just pick one of my brackets at random - well, look I just happened to pick the one I'm doing best in Very Happy - I have 24 out of 28. Barring a big comeback in one of the remaining games still being played, I'll end up with 27 correct picks in the 1st round.

Heard something as I was coming home from work today that puts the difficulty of these picks into perspective. Out of 4.8 million brackets filled out on ESPN.com, there were 3 perfect brackets remaining. And they all had Utah State winning over Texas A & M, so I guess that means there are now zilch!

Speaking of which, I'm not sure if Aggie is into college basketball, but it's a good opportunity for some trash talking for the game Sunday.

After the first round 24 correct out of 32. Bad bracket, in I didn't pick Wisconsin and Temple let me down, so that bracket has me screwed.

Aggie will be mad at me, as I picked Utah St as a upset.

Next year the board will have to do a yahoo bracket.

What can I say -- I'm looking forward to seeing A&M play in Reliant Stadium in Houston after this weekend.

And, as much as it pains me to say this -- Eat dirt, Scooby. Picking Utah State over A&M, my ass.

Brackets destroyed. Just going to root for the Bigten teams, and those pesky underdogs. Wouldn't a final 4 of Northern Iowa, St Mary's, Cornell and Xavier be great?

Ah, well, if it wasn't A&M, at least it was an Indiana school. (I would still rather it had been A&M, though.)

I just heard that an autistic teenager in Illinois still has a perfect bracket. Even with all the upsets.

Last night killed my brackets -- can't believe Syracuse lost. And Hooray for Kansas State! (although I didn't pick them) I do love when an underdog wins.

Kansas State game was great. Even though I had them advancing over Xavier, I was rooting for Xavier, thinking they would give Butler a better shot to make the final 4.

Aggie...Xavier was the lower ranked team.

Maybe, but Kansas State isn't considered one of the big basketball schools in the Big 12, so to me, they're an underdog. (can't get through a day without a juicy rationalization. yes, a mangled quote from the Big Chill.)

Maybe I gave up on my brackets too soon. Other than picking Kansas and Syracuse, I got all the other Elite 8 teams correct. I have West Virginia beating Kentucky so that's my only hope now.

Only 1 number 1 left, and Duke might not get over Baylor, they looked better than I expected.
