    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.

    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.

Arizona is the only late seed left in the whole thing. :hmmm::fingerscr:pray: All I ask now is, if there is a March Madness Diety, can we please not have a Final Four of all #1 seeds? :nopompom:

    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.

    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).

    I went 7-1 in round 3, my only loss being MSU-Kansas. I deserve to lose for picking against Sparty.
