I'm just glad Michigan State won the Big10. First time since the championship run of 2000. Let's do this and burn shit in a non-riot way.

First time ever filling out a bracket. I'm really hoping for a MSU/OSU champ game. I root for both teams. And the Ohio vs Michigan angle will be fun.

I filled 'er out, with the big showdown between MSU and Kansas. I know I'm biased, but I feel something magical in the air. I also think Harvard is going to upset Vandy. I don't really know. I don't watch games throughout the season for the most part, so I just guess based on what I've seen or heard on Sportscenter.

I find the naive approach is usually more accurate. I always fill out my first bracket from gut instinct and then I'll have a few more where I really think it out and play out a few different situations, and almost every single time the bracket I filled out by instinct is far more accurate than the ones I think about more.

man my bracket is jaacked up. but I guess so is everyone else's. the duke/mizzou upsets won't mess me up as much as other people since I had both teams losing in the sweet 16 anyway. other than that this is getting messy and I like it

This is the only time of year I enjoy college basketball. It was amazing seeing Lehigh upset Duke! I had them in my Elite 8, but it's always nice to see the little guy do something like this.

For the Sweet 16 the East division was the only one I had totally correct. Man. At least it's still totally possible to have Kansas and OSU in the Final Four, as well as MSU. Fuck you, Duke. According to the bracket site I'm in third, behind Icarus (I think) and fuckembucky, whoever that is.

I was amazed that any of the brackets I had were still alive after the first weekend. Duke and Mizzou hurt me bad. I had a bracket on espn.com with Mizzou winning it all cause I thought there was a reasonable chance they could take it with their lethal 3 point shooting, but they got lazy on d and let norfolk trade baskets with them. I had Duke losing in the championship game in one, that hurts. But somehow I'm still in fourth for now. It will take until tomorrow night for my bracket to be totally fucked.
