    Gotta love this time of year!
    Who's your favorite team to make it to the Final Four?
    Myself - pulling for the Blue Devils. Became a Duke fan after living in Raleigh for several years. Plus - Coach K IS a West Point grad. :thumb:

    I favor the United States military over the Colonel's band of mercenaries. :shake:

    Actually, the best quote I heard all weekend: the Big East has as many teams that made it to the Sweet 16 as the city of Richmond. Great for VCU and Richmond. Even better, in that I couldn't stand the Big East fans this year!

    Bullet, thank GOD my true identity is hidden here....VCU is my undergrad and my husbands GRAD and I let a "friend" from work (a GUY) select my bracket b/c I could not get my picks in on time and he did NOT pick VCU in my bracket! So hmmm, do I route for my $$ payout or for my Alma Mater? Just kidding! My AM, of course!:thumb:

    I meant he did not pick VCU to end up the Final Four, just to clarify!

    I will pull for the underdog when it becomes apparent who that is but for right now, I'm pulling for anyone who plays against Duke or UNC-Chapel Hill! Can't stand them or their fans! :thumbdown:

    Yes, it's sour grapes because my alma mater finished at the bottom of the ACC. :stretcher:

    It's all relative....everthing looks smaller to Charles Barkley these days, compared to Charles Barkley.

    Hope Arizona shot their bolt against Duke. It was an amazing game. They deserve the accolades. Next up UCONN on and amazing run in the Big East and NCAA. Can they keep it up?

    For the women: I hope the bracket works out and UCONN V Tenessee. That will be a big one and worth watching if you have been following the fights back and forth.
