    Come on Michigan State. They were my sleeper for the elite 8. They get knocked out and I'm done.

    So out of 11.7 million brackets sent in to ESPN.
    Only 273 people are still perfect.

    Unreal
    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.

    Yes a combination of both.
    But of those 273 with the perfect brackets, I am going to say it was 95% knowledge, 5% dumb luck.

    They KNOW their basketball.

    Actually I might be able to keep it going. i still have 14 of 16 sweet 16 left. I had Davidson losing next round anyways so that one doesnt hurt that bad. As long as Oklahoma wins today I should be good for the weekend to make a run.

    So, I've heard the following from the announcers, play by play, color analysts or general shit bag game callers, "kill shot" with 11 and change to play in the game and "rock fight" in basketball lexicon. What? I've never, until now, heard a hoop game be called or referenced as a rock fight.

    Who's got the remote? Hit mute will, ya?

    Who did Dayton pay-off to,literally get a home game in the play-in game, and now get to play in Columbus? #11 seed, and supposedly the LAST team in too. SMH

    Im in the 92.6% percentile
    Dayton winning moved me back up with the Big Shots!

    If I can get UCLA and Dayton both to the Sweet 16, Im going to be looking good.
