Holy bracketbuster. Zona & VA bounced.
Not shocked at all by the tabbies losing to Princeton. They're a freakin' arrogant team.
Real easy to call the upsets in hindsight when you haven't filled out a bracket!! :mrgreen:


Now here's hoping I get win from my Spartans since everyone is wearing green today! :stpatcheer

Good job, MSU Spartans!! I doubt they'll go further, but you never know. :jumpclap


Some interesting historical Tournament stats. Looks like being an #11 seed isn't all bad. :ugeek:

Thanks to Bryan, I'm not in last place. :rofl
Well I was noticing the other night, for instance, that when I'm going through pistachios, opening pistachios, that the hard to open ones, I don't bother with them anymore

Can FDU hold on and do it? Let's hope so.

The one pool I do outside of here, it's set up where it's the seed times the round, so if you pick a 13 seed in the 1st round, you get 13 points, then 26 in 2nd and so on.

OMG, they did it, #16 FDU upsets #1 Purdue!! Seeing a 16 beat a 1 was always on my sports bucket list, now I've seen it happen twice. Unbelievable game!! Hate to see Purdue go down, but big props to Fairleigh-Dickinson! :shock: :clap

Never have I had a bracket busted as badly as this one, but at this point it's just fun to watch the upsets! :D

My long time pool was set up that way, too. I'd actually like to switch it to those rules in this pool next year, if folks seem amenable to it. Just seems fair to give extra credit for upsets and for daring to pick them. :think
