    How busted are your brackets?

    Michigan St and Arizona did some damage to mine. My Final 4 is still intact though.

    I had Arizona getting upset by Wichita, but had Michigan St. beating Kansas in the championship. Big bust for me. Purdue also killed my bracket. It's madness.

    Arizona didn't hurt so much. Michigan State hurt me, but then it hurt most of America so it was awash. W. Virginia did some serious damage as well, but again it did the same damage to most of America. The others depend on how far the unexpected (on my part) winners go. Fortunately my wife is out of town so I'm able to catch most of the games while I take care of honey-dos during commercials and half-times! :D

    I still cannot fathom that Yale beat Baylor. Next up: cats and dogs marrying.

    And Hawaii beat Cal? Who do they play in the regular season? Guam?

    And West Virginia loses to Stephen F Austin??? What else do those Mountaineers have to do that they could lose to SFA?

    Of course, no one cares that Pitt lost to the Badgers, except that both teams scored in the girls' range.

    Been fun to watch! We have set up a wall of iPads at work so we can get them all. We may or may not have taken a 3 hour lunch on Friday. My Final Four are in tact.

    And Fencersmom... It's women's range, not girls! ;) Well except for UConn... They are in another range of stats all together!

    Cal's top scorer was out due to a hand injury. And did you see the Yale/Duke game today? Yale made a miraculous comeback and almost won! Good to have March madness while everyone waits anxiously for appointments.

    Hoops, I meant GIRLS.... since I have seen middle school girls teams score in the 40s. :)

    I don't normally follow college b-ball - being a PITTSBURGH STEELERS FAN, as y'all know, but I do watch the Big 10, SEC, and a few other conferences. But March Madness is indeed fun.

    Now, I think they should expand the court by 25 feet in length, 15 in width and raise the basket by 5 feet. Alas, no one listens to me.

    Yeah, I bet those Duke fans had to take a few Prozac during that game!

    As I write this, Virginia is having some difficulty with Butler, 59-55.

    6 of my teams made it to the Elite 8. My brackets are tied with each other, all alone, for first place in my challenge. Come on brackets! Baby needs new shoes!!!!

    Go UNC, Virginia, Oregon, and Villanova!!!!

    My bracket is totally busted. UVA was my only hope, but alas - Syracuse.
    An Oklahoma - UNC final would be a great game, IMPO.
    This has been one crazy tournament, but a lot of fun to watch.

    Villanova did a great job at shutting down Buddy which in turn shut down Oklahoma. The championship game was amazing. So much respect for Jenkins. Did you guys no that his mom was the one who taught him how to shoot a basketball?

    Did you know he has a brother who plays for UNC?
    Fortunately, although I picked UNC for the win, by the time the championship game was played, I was in first place in my bracket pool and no one who picked Villanova could catch up to me... so I didn't have to worry about the outcome. One of the most dramatic finishes of the year!

    It was a great game!
