    I'll have to start strategizing my bracket ... I've taken 2nd in the last couple of years at work (highest placing lady) and those 50 bucks are pretty sweet. I'd love to see my Orangemen go far but they've been so uneven this season (still sore over that Big East loss on Friday and I miss my boyfriends Wes & Jonny but I'm still a fan for life). Hope next season is stronger for them. Boeheim's alluded to impending retirement and I don't know HOW I feel about that.
    ... here i am!

    I'm a huge Uconn fan (born & raised in CT & it's pretty much all we have, lol!), although I'm not sure how far they will go this year. They have the talent but they haven't been consistent at all. The Big East tourney championship run & eventual win makes things look promising, though.
    Suck it, Shawn.

    Glad to see Indiana State in there!
    I have an affinity for Duke. I just love a team that goes for three-pointers as consistently as they do every year.
    I need to look over the draw better. I will do so at work today, my home laptop doesn't open the PDF's no matter what I download.
    I don't think I saw Indiana University.
    Every year I pull for Butler, Louisville or Kentucky (If Indiana U is not in it - my Alma mater) and every year they lose a close game that takes me forever to recover from. So, I am not going to watch any of their games and maybe they will advance further. lol I didn't even watch the CBS or ESPN Bracketology shows as I do every year.

    This year I haven't followed college basketball as closely as I usually do, but I'm still hopeful that this is the year I get all the games in the tournament right.

    Final Four:

    North Carolina
    Duke
    Louisville
    Pitt

    Duke over North Carolina
    Louisville over Pitt

    Champ: Duke. Again.

    (All that being said, I'll be rooting with everything I got for Michigan State -- but I haven't been real impressed with them this year. Then again who else has been to six of the last twelve Final Fours?)

    ahhh...March Madness.

    The only time I can ever be found watching any sort of basketball game. I love the enthusiasm and thrill of the games.

    My final four is

    UNC
    Duke
    Kansas
    Pitt

    with Pitt over UNC for the final.

    I was surprised by that, too -- thought Louisville would last a couple more rounds. Also I was strutting around because I thought I had picked Butler to upset, but really I had chosen Belmont in another game. Double doh!

    loved seeing kyrie irving back in form today! took him a bit to warm up, but then it was pretty spectacular to watch after being out for so long.

    Butler got through. :sigh of relief: I guess, they were never at risk, but still.
