    Since neither of my teams (LSU and Memphis) were very good this year, and not tournament-bound, I didn't follow college basketball at all. I might as well be throwing darts at my bracket!

    Whatever happens it should be fun. I think this tournament has a few upper level teams but IMO the field is very competitive.

    I'm feeling very uneasy about my picks this year. We'll see if my bracket survives the first full weekend.

    BTW, I think the "First Four" is a crock of sh!t. Why should two 11 seeds have a play-in game when there are worse teams already in the field of 64. I can see the 16's battling to get in.

    I agree Bill. I think it's because of all the automatic bids. Kansas State is likely much better than Winthrop, but Winthrop won their conference, so they get it no matter what. It's all the 'bubble' teams that didn't win an automatic bid that have to fight through the first four. I think it's stupid everyone gets so butthurt when you call the 64 round the first round. In these days of everyone included in everything (bathrooms too!) I say they just turn it into a 256 team tourney, but then the 50 that didn't make it would cry.

    My South bracket is perfect: 8 out of 8 games called correctly.

    My West bracket is likewise commendable: 6 out of 8 games called correctly, with the only losses being my VCU and Bucknell picks. But I didn't have them going any further anyway, so not much loss there.

    My Midwest bracket has issues. Only picked 5 winners, and I had Creighton going to the Sweet 16.

    My East bracket is a dumpster fire. Only picked 5 winners and two of my Sweet 16 teams are toast (SMU and UNCW). And I had SMU going to the Elite 8! Aaaak!

    Sorry...the big "V" folded in the last 20 seconds. The backside forward should have collapsed in and taken that charge..or occupied that space ( In Wisconsin's go ahead bucket). The pass to the big man was a bit telegraphed. It wasn't an easy shot, but it was a long way from a hard one...then to call a timeout and go down court and lose the ball??!!!

    But then I always thought Wisconsin should have been seeded 3 or 4.
