    My bracket is ugly but I'm still kicking. I am shocked. I cannot believe Duke lost last night. I didn't even tune to that game...I figured they had that one in the bag.
    Move along. Nothing to see here.

    The only way I can move up in the rankings is if UCLA and Gonzaga meet in the title game.

    I have AZ and Kansas meeting with KU winning. We shall see. I'm just pumped that UM (Go Blue!) won the big ten tournament and have played well in this tournament. I am shocked that they put this run together and I am very happy for those kids.

    Yeah, Duke screwed me up. Oh, well - I had a perfect first day. How many people can say that!

    I did find it interesting that out of the nine ACC teams to make the tourney, eight did not make it past the first weekend. Has there ever been such a total conference flop?

    Looks like I'm out. I didn't really do the math but it looks like there is 2 or 3 people left that could win. Good luck all!

    So if I read it right - if Oregon and South Carolina win next weekend, the standings will remain as they are right now and I will finish 2nd. If either Gonzaga or UNC win, I'm officially out.

    Math makes my head hurt, so I'll just assume I'm out since my only remaining points belong to UNC and there are two others with UNC to the end.

    Oh well...when does football start???

    Now entering the final turn!

    ...and from back in the pack from the 12 position, it's, it's...divemaster! Making his break on the outside!

    ...passing shac; and now spacemany; now chasing down bedofroses--but bedofroses battles back with more in the tank...

    ...now divemaster again catching copefiend and Grayson Got Me Trippin, who are ridden out with nothing left; now chasing down NeedfulKings and windnwaves, who keep the pace!

    Can divemaster break free of the middle of the pack and catch the leaders?

    If Gonzaga wins, I finish top 10 in my pool of hundreds. Not bad for someone who hasn't watched an NCAA game since a Shane Battier led Duke team won it.

    Oh, I'm goin' slap happy! I'm goin' slap slap happy! Slappity slapping ya, teachin' ya a lesson for comin' in my house!
