Went to the #8 Colorado vs #9 Pitt and #1 Florida vs #16 Albany games today. We expected one game to be a blowout and the other to be a "good game". We were right - just not about which game would be which.

Colorado looked completely lost and overmatched against Pitt. I kinda felt bad for them. Not what I expected from an #8 vs #9.

As far as Florida goes, they really had their hands full with Albany. They may have won, but did not look as good as I expected. Apparently Coach Donovan agreed.....he wasn't a happy camper in his post game interview.

Was at that game. It was awesome with Harvard leading most of the way. Would of been a shame for them to lose in the final minutes. Next game was Mich State vs Delaware. The Spartans could definitely be final 4 material.

The North Dakota State vs Oklahoma was great fun with the Bisons taking it in OT.

It was a long day at the arena watching 4 games, but certainly worth it.

The University of Dayton beat Ohio State yesterday in an upset. The game was quite a nailbighter. I don't follow college hoops, but there's a lot of celebrating going on here.

Maybe the way we rate teams is no longer operative

Quick update on the pool.

Only six entries. Unbelievably, four of the six, including your truly, picked a #4 seed to win it all, the Michigan State Spartans. I grew up in Michigan, what's the rest of your excuses? True Izzone believers, I guess.

But, Go Blue in the meantime.

The CBS site is pretty cool in that it provides a summary of how everyone else in the pool is doing, and what their maximum points possible are.

Since my other bracket was in CBS sports.... thought I would try and connect up... no go...

Also, the scoring on my other is different... it is the round plus the team ranking... so a 12 beating a 5 is worth 13 points instead of 6 points if the favorite won...

First weekend EarlyRetire bracket results:
1) Marylicious: 47points, 171 possible, Win-MSU; Runner Up-Louisvulle, Final Four- Fla., WI.
2) MBAustin: 46/126;W-MSU, RU-WichSt, FF- Fla, Creighton.
3).Jack medura: 45/165; W-Fla, RU-Louis, FF-MSU, SDSU.
4) gcgang: 43/159; W-MSU, RU-WI, FF-FLA, UMich.
5) Richard LaFreniere, 41/89; W-Duke, RU-UConn, FF-Sy, SDSU.
6) Dan Huffman 39/159; W-MSU, RU-Louis, FF-FLA, WI.

Might be tough for Dan to catch Marylicious, with the same Final Four and currently trailing by 8 points.
Medura looks in great shape, with the most potential points, and Fla to win it all.
Gcgang can catch up if Michigan rather than Louisville makes it to FF.

Sorry about Duke and Syracuse, Richard.

I picked M State for three reasons: Izzo, pre season #1 pick, and ESPN analysts opinions

Heh - that would be me in first place. Not to worry - it wont last ;-)

I picked Michigan State because it seems I oftentimes underestimate them. From what I read, they had injury problems during the year but are now healthy and capable of winning it all. Didn't expect so many others to feel the same way, though. I figured Florida would be the popular pick.

Alrighty then!

San Diego out will help me get out of the bottom ranking. I still have a shot of going from last place to 2nd! Can't beat Mary since we have identical final four onward. She's got us all beat already I believe.

I think I've got a chance to catch Mary if Michigan wins one more, tiebreaker will decide. If Mich gets to final, I think I've got it

Go Blue!

In one pool I'm in, I'm locked into dead last with no teams left. Last night knocked out my finalists.

Richard F, our current last place guy, can still win! But he needs UConn to win, twice, and MSU, UM, Fla and WI to lose.

Worst bracket picks I've ever made. I'm usually in the top ⅓ of a 100-person office pool. At least there is no money at stake in this one!

March Madness

Geographically, I'm with the Wildcats.

But New England was good to me so the Huskies are fine too.
