    That's usually the way the scoring works on these brackets. I'm almost certain it's the default.

    How is Michigan winning this game? They are getting outmuscled something fierce. I want to change my pick.

    Their defense has been tough...but still they got the second half to go down...I am rooting for them, but Sims needs to appear and help out.

    It might have something to do with that Oglesby dude jacking up insane 3s from 40 feet out with two guys draped on him (that and Clemson missing a mess of shots in close). Who'd you pick TaS? I had Clemson cause I think the Big Ten sucks ('cept for MSU) and Michigan might not even have gotten in had they not crushed weak Iowa in the Big Ten Tourney. But now, all the games in progress are looking ugly for me.

    Michigan had a 16 pt lead with 15 mins left in game...let see if they can hold on...I picked them to win as my sentimental first round pick.

    Looks like most of us (except the prof and Hq) took Michigan to win in the first round...and lose to the sooners in the second... :thumb:

    I'm actually okay with my employer's basketball team winning that game (after all, I didn't have Clemson getting past Oklahoma anyway); and I like that Manny Harris -- good ball player.

    But really, Clemson's inability to make bunnies in this game (forget about their futility from beyond the arc) was astounding! If they'd converted just a fraction of the opportunities they had inside they'd have won comfortably.

    I took them because I didn't think much of Clemson. Michigan beat some really good teams this year. I don't expect them to beat Oklahoma, but I will not be all that surprised if they do.

    You could pick 7 more correct than me in the first round, but if I have one more Final Four team than you, than I still beat you by a point. :nerner:

    That's not much to brag about. If you took all the higher seeds you'd also be 13-3.

    When your record is better than the 'best seeds' theory, you know you're doing well.
