I'm in. But conflicted, should I pick Bama to go on a run and win it all before it happens so I can look like Nostradamus?

It’s futile, since my bracket will reign supreme.

Not so fast! We probably have same champion, and I threw in a couple upsets.

Lmao.  So, I used the Randomizer just to see what it would pick... It picked UMBC to be the first 16 seed to beat a 1 and a national championship game of Florida State and West Virginia.  Fun-nee!

Not really big upset IMO, I picked Loyola, as did a bunch of people. But it was a wild finish.

 

Now if UNCG had pulled it off, that'd have been a SHOCKER lol

Stinkin’ Chokies kept me from being perfect through Day 1...

Yeah, that loss hurt me bad.  I had them going to the final 8.  But them and UNCG were my only flaws and I had UNCG going out next round.

11&5 on day one.  Not so good.  Got to pick it up on day 2.  I do have all three 10 seeds winning today, plus 11 seed Syracuse lol

Take a peek.  ;)

 

#13 seeds with either an AdjO/AdjD above 50 are now 4-1 this decade against #4 seeds with either an AdjO/AdjD below 60.  Buffalo’s AdjO was 47 and Arizona’s AdjD was in the 70s.  Was the king of value bets to choose Buffalo and it all paid off beautifully.

To be honest, I had to google who he was...found this very interesting article ... you possibly could be right...  

 

Up in the Air: John Higgins is one of the nation's most visible, wanted—and loathed—basketball referees

Below is an article on the Marshall BB coach...great read... he certainly believes in the way he coach's a game...

It's a family thing. His brother, Mike, coaches the Rockets and has been a big proponent of the three ball, quick shots and no defense for a while.

Pepperidge Farm remembers...

Sadly, buying a bag of distinctive milano cookies won't make this whole thing disappear.

I had a uneasy feeling when the score was tied at the half that it wasn't going to turn out well.  The Retrievers were "hunting dogs" and their trail was relentless.  I watched the first couple of minutes in second half.  When the Hoos came out and didn't establish their game, I couldn't watch anymore. 

Oh well, I will go with the Dukies now and hope they win it all. 

As for Pepperidge Farm, my favorite are the Shortbread Cookies.
