    picked mine

    We should do a NIT bracket too so I can be a homer as well and pick the razorbacks to win it all.

    Gafford is sitting out and picking out an agent. Pretty sad day when ur football team loses more games in one season than they have in their 100+ year history and your basketball team has no chance of even getting past the first round of the NIT.

    Same. I don't watch college basketball until the tournament so I don't know shit. I started with the all-chalk bracket and then made a handful of modifications.

    Hah. Imagine you're a Duke and Raptor fan.

    Today was a day. Granted if I had to take the luck from the Raptors for Duke to win I would do it again every day since a regular season game matters not compared to a tournament game. But man crazy day of finishes for me.

    They should have just gone straight to the Sweet 16. A real lack of upsets.

    Fucking hell, that Michigan State/Duke game. Duke not having enough fouls to send them to the line, and then trying to miss the last foul shot and the bloody thing went in. Absolute fucking madness.

    This tournament has had some mental finishes. Really looking forward to the Final Four games.
