    Let the games begin.

    IMHO - the best 3 weeks in college sports. :thumb:

    My pick -
    Kentucky (being the SEC homer that I am)- although I'd love to see Duke win it all (for the WP fan in me). :thumb::thumb:

    1000% in agreement. I had the luck to be in Vegas several times for the opening round week-end of March Madness. For the rabid college fan like me, NOTHING beat sitting in a sports book lounge watching 4 games at once and witnessesing hundreds of screaming gamblers at every last second buzzer beater or 12-seed over 5-seed upset.

    My plans to take leave today and tomorrow so I can sit at home and put my remote control to work have been spoiled, however. Time to test if the Pentagon firewalls will allow me to stream the games. Shhhhh! Don't tell my boss! :shake:

    So, willing to put your reputation as a skilled CBB prognosticator to the test? There's only a few more hours to sign up for the SAF Bracket Challenge...

    Why?
    I just want Duke to do well because of Coach K - one of West Point's most illustrious Old Grads. :thumb:

    Love and admire Coach K. I have them going to Final 4, but Duke has had some choke issues this yr regarding ACC losses.

    UNCCH has had the same issue too and I think Temple wants it more than the TarHeels.

    Now if I had to root for Duke against UNCCH...Devils all the way because I respect the Duke program more than UNCCH.

    OBTW as much as DixieLand feels that way about Duke and UNCCH, I feel that way about UVA, however, I didn't have Florida going to the Sweet 16, so I still can make it up point wise

    :biggrin: Sorry, I'm just not that mature! I pulled for Russia when they played UNC back in the '80s! It's a whole "Tobacco Road" thing that goes back to the '70s! Like I said....a deep-seated hatred! :thumb:
