    Go Tater's daughter! It'll be great if she ends up schooling all of us here.

    My favorite incorrect picks of the first round so far: HQ picked upsets in both the Vandy-GW (6 vs. 11) and Washington St.-Oral Roberts (3 vs. 14) games in the East, which would have led to a GW-Oral Roberts 11 v. 14 game in the 2nd round. Final scores of those two games:

    Vandy 77
    GW 44

    Washington St. 70
    Oral Roberts 54

    Only 49 points shy of getting those two games right, my brutha...:pound:

    Just saw Neitzel throw one up from the corner with the shotclock running out. It hit the TOP of the backboard first and fell in!

    Yes, you %%%%ers, we just love to watch Michigan State up double digits shooting free throws for 10 minutes while somebody's beating Duke by 2.

    Just another reason to hate MSU. Or, at least, having to be in Michigan today. But mostly MSU.

    And finally an upset! Down goes DOOOOK! I always love it when they lose.

    :djparty:

    Man, talk about free chili...that was some of the worst defense ever, by both teams, in the last couple of minutes. Definitely a "last team with the ball wins" sort of finish all the way. Credit to the VCU point guard, though, that was a pretty clutch jumper he hit to win it. And he was driving through Duke's sieve-like D on each of the few possessions before that too.

    Yes sir! Not really that huge an upset, actually. Lots of people had VCU winning. Generally speaking, that is...I'm not sure about our bracket challenge, though I'm sure at least a few other people there picked it too. This was the most mediocre Duke team in more than a decade, and they were probably overrated even as a 6 seed. An 8 probably would have been more accurate.

    I think you're picking the wrong end of the horse.

    So who's "Border Collies" over at the Yahoo group? They're in first place, with all 16 games right on the first day! Only one in the PF.com group to get all of them right. All alone in 2nd place, with 15 out of 16, is the ultimate NCAA bracket prodigy, aka Darth Tater's daughter.

    It was a day for favourites, if you picked every lower seed in each matchup you would also be on 15. Seems a few people were a bit gung-ho on the upset predictions.

    Au contraire, my friend, BYU was the 8th seed and lost to Xavier's 9th seed. :rain: :kleenex:

    Finally! One of my upsets came through. WTG Winthrop!

    My 11 year old may be kicking my butt, but at least I'm way up on my 8 year old.:pound:
