I have a chance to win this thing but.....why did I pick Pittsburgh??
I just looked at the other brackets...you're right. If the final weekend goes your way, you win.
What's wrong with Pittsburgh Dre? I know they didn't blow through the first couple of rounds, but they are gritty and tough and well coached and they have Blair. Having picked Duke, I'm afraid of Pittsburgh: along with MSU they have the top rebounding differential in the country going into the tournament. That can go a long way to keeping you in games in pressure situations when people are often missing shots cause of nerves, unfamiliar venues, etc.. I don't know, right now, nobody looks like a lock, and I feel like any of the top 8 seeds could go all the way. I think that the only way I can win is 1) Duke to go all the way and 2) Louisville to be in the final four. could happen, of course, but ...
I doubt anyone can win at this point if they don't get the final pick right... unless a 3 seed wins and nobody else picked that team.
They looked shakey in both opening round games, pulling them out in the end....so I am skeptical right now.
Mr. Tater sir, I respect your previous fantasy sports achievements. ...but you look like a fool. your picks = poop
You are just holding my lack of an eye patch against me. Do you have any idea how many eyes a potato has? it would cost me an entire paycheck to cover half of them.
Although everyone's Pickem choices stays the same I have reseeded the brackets for the next 8 games for those who'd like to pick the winners based on THE CURRENT SWEET 16: MIDWEST REGION: 1. LOUISVILLE VS 12. ARIZONA ___________________ 3. KANSAS VS 2. MSU _____________________________ WEST REGION: 1. CONN VS 5. PURDUE____________________ 3. MIZZU VS 2. MEMPHIS_____________________- EAST REGION: 1. PITT VS 4. XAVIER__________________ 3. VILLINOVA VS 2. DUKE_______________________ SOUTH REGION: 1, UNC VS 4. GONZAGA_____________ 2. OKLAGRIFFIN VS 3. SYRACUSE___________________
Oh yeah, HQ. There's cryin' in March Madness. And throwin' sports sections filled with brackets across the room. And lookin' at last year's and the year's before brackets and whimperin'. And rippin' butcher block paper brackets off the walls. Off the walls. And then...there is calm. Arizona is the only late seed left in the whole thing. :fingerscr All I ask now is, if there is a March Madness Diety, can we please not have a Final Four of all #1 seeds?
Thanks HQ. Pittsburgh is the only #1 I've got. I'd like to see them win it. Or Memphis. I've liked both teams for several years now.
Everyone who picked a bracket for the original Pick Em' should have received an email invite to Yahoo's 2nd Chance Tournament based on the current Sweet 16. For anyone that missed it, PM me and I'll send you the link to join.
MSU/Kansas was the only decent game tonight. Thankfully the Sparties pulled it out after being down 13. ELITE 8 BABY!!! :D
Great comeback.....they got to get to Detroit now to get that massive homecourt advantage!!!
I am really rooting for Michigan. They are now my favorite team. It would be great if they were in the Final Four.
Careful...we don't call ourselves Michigan. That is the OTHER team. (The arrogant dark side). We are MICHIGAN STATE!!!
yea get it right..... you are now the fan rooting for that cow school not the one with the winged helmets.... though i am rooting for them too
Yeah, the winged helmets. You know, the one that loses to powerhouses like Appalaichain (sp?)State and Toledo... Go COW SCHOOL!! Wait...MU (moo) sounds like the sound a cow makes...and I've seen the MU cheerleaders....why is MSU the cow school just because we were the Aggies????:p
And what's up with those winged helmets? Wolverines can't fly
I went 7-1 in round 3, my only loss being MSU-Kansas. I deserve to lose for picking against Sparty.
