    I did one of these one year and made picks based on whose mascot I liked better. Worked fairly well.

    Will get myself over to this one. Maybe this year I’ll chose another highly scientific method.

    Capt MJ, I chose Cinci because it is the ONLY Ohio team I would permit to win anything. :) My kindness knows no bounds.

    I've got them going pretty deep but certainly not all the way. An ACC team will win it... or so my brackets say.

    I'm watching the Texas Southern - NC Central game on TruTV. I find myself wondering how NCCU even got an invite.... and I was rooting for them tonight. It's not like it's their first time to the dance as they were there last year... and presumably have some experience.

    It asks for both a user name and password when I open the link...do you have the user name?

    You create your own user name and password as I recall. Later it will ask for the SAF password. Keep in mind I'm a senior citizen so my memory is not the greatest.

    I'm in. I would share my picks, but I know as soon as I disclosed my "answer key" everyone would change their picks.

    You have to create an ESPN account to play.

    Get ready to be taken down.

    Tick tock tick tock.......
    We’ve got a great group so far that have signed up. If you want to join the fun, you can still fill out a bracket.
    The team I picked to win it all starts with a ‘V’.

    Ok...the two Washington State Homers who picked Gonzaga to win it all can open your eyes as they squeaked by! Kansas is in a dogfight with the smart kids!! My favorite time of the year.

    My favorite time of year, too @NovaGrad ! I arranged my work schedule so that I could be off today. I love the first day of the tournament!

    I love it. I graduated from a MAC school. We (mid-majors) have a chip on our shoulders. Buffalo represented well.

    Possible Bracket Buster for me. I had them going to the championship game against Nova. Just proves that Deandre Ayton should not be Naismith player of the year. I think any judges leaning that way will sway to Jalen Brunson now. With the way Kentucky (inconsistent) is playing this bodes well for UVA to reach the title game now even without Deandre Hunter out with a broken wrist. I would love to see UVA vs VU in the championship as very rarely do the two best teams in the country get to face each other.
