    I can't stand the sound of the squeaky shoes on the basketball court. And I can't watch a game without sound. Otherwise I'd watch it. What do you suggest?

    Yea, put the game on mute and put in Sweet Lewi from Philly 4 on repeat. You'll get the sound of Eddie dribbling to Jeff's vocals. Be in the moment.
    Phuck Philly.

    Just saw the replay of the NCST roll. Wow.

    Mateen Cleaves is pretty good. Glad Greg Anthony lost his gig for hooking up with a hooker. He was supposed to be a GOP rising star.

    I don't think that Downton Abbey fella from Illinois loves his country. But I hear he's got wicked moves in the lane in the 'hood.
    WHAT the fuck are you talking about? Illinois? Huh?
    Some dipshit congressman from Illinois who just resigned. He decorated his office in DC like downton abbey. And apparently was using taxpayer money for all sorts of exotic vacations
    Of course. I did hear about that. WTF did halifaxxx bring it up in this thread?
    You brought up "GOP rising star." I pointed out another. Ppppppffffffffftttttttttttt!

    not doing too bad. have 2 sweet 16 teams out already, SMU and Stephen F. Austin.

    South Bracket is fucked up (not one single game tight so far, :lol: ) Looks like I could be 12-4 by the end of the night.

    oh boy thought i was doing better. looks i'll be 10-6.

    Damn, 3 points away from a perfect bracket after day 1 and I only filled out 1. Missed the two 14 seeds plus I had LSU. Nice start so far.

    Kentucky is just too damn good. You could see they underestimated Hampton in the beginning. Hampton couldn't press all game otherwise they might have had a shot. As soon as the one dude from Hampton dunked on Towns or whoever it was it got Kentucky in gear. Nice ob by Hampton despite what the score says. For 7 minutes they played the top team hard and made them work for it.

    Calipari is such a d-bag. Did you see his halftime interview. He in a nutshell said that Hampton had no chance, the only reason it was even close to start was because he has a lot of freshman and it was their first tourney game and that they would end up blowing out Hampton in the end. I agree with 100% of what he said but come on. Show some sportmanship and say Hampton really pushed you to start and all the normal bullshit coach speak.

    I have Duke beating Kentucky in the Finals. This reminds me too much of the UNLV undefeated year so I went with history. Duke ends the perfect season.

    So I submitted 4 brackets to ESPN.

    One of my brackets went 13-3 yesterday
    I had #11 ULCA winning and I had #10 Ohio State winning. At one point last night, before the LSU/NCST game.....ESPN had me ranked in the 99.7 percentile, and I was ranked 20,000 out of I don't know how many. Pretty Damned Cool! Then of course I lost that game, and plummeted to #120,000.

    Either way I am in the 98.7 percentile.
    And my bracket went 13-3

    Like I said, I am a March Madness GENIUS!!!!!!

    I would agree if he wasn't talking about college kids from a small school that were destined to be destroyed the moment the seedings were done. If he wants to get cocky talking about playing Kansas, Duke, Wisconsin or another basketball powerhouse I would agree it would be refreshing. When he is talking about a bunch of kids about to become accountants playing for nothing more than loving to play the game (and to impress the ladies) it comes off as very condescending and disrespectful to me.

    I had the same thing before LSU got knocked off. I was ranked in the 99.8 percentile before that point and am now 98.7. I did lose 2 sweet 16 teams out of those 3 losses so I need the rest of my bracket to hold to have a chance to finish high. 3 points away from a perfect bracket. This is the best I have ever done so far on brackets.

    What makes me crazy, is that in 2 of my 4 brackets I had Iowa State losing! But I had them winning in this bracket.

    DAMN! 14-2 would have been so damned sweet!

    Any way I am also in a pool, $60 a square, and it works just like the Super Bowl Squares.

    My numbers are 4-3(winning team 4)
    and 2-2

    Any game that ends up 4-3(64-63....74-53) You get it.....
    Or 2-2( 72-62 etc)

    I win!!!
    The payoffs increase as the tourney goes on.

    Im thinking a large majority of those 273 watch more college basketball than the rest of us. Im thinking a large majority of those 273, are well educated when it comes to these brackets. No way was it just "dumb luck."

    I'm in the majority.

    Out of the 273, I wonder what number of those have ever watched a basketball game.
    Im thinking a large majority of those 273 watch more college basketball than the rest of us. Im thinking a large majority of those 273, are well educated when it comes to these brackets. No way was it just "dumb luck."
    It's gotta be both....NO ONE....not Bilas, not Dickie V, nobody.....can know about ALL these teams.

    I'm thinking today has got to be a letdown after yesterday....the three games going on right now are not all that riveting....I hope I'm wrong.

    I can't stand Jim Nance.

    If I had known then what I know now...
