Well my brackets are pretty much busted up. First round I picked 24 out of the 32 games correctly.

My Final Four is still in tact. I got scared that my pick for National Champion, UCLA had to come back against Texas A&M, but I think they will definitely benefit from close games like that. Knowing you have the ability to make tough shots in gut-check time is invaluable. And a bit of good defense never hurt anyone either.

I've still got 7 out of my elite 8 in the runnings, and they all look like they have a good chance. All of my final 4 picks are still in, so that's good.

I'm still pissed both Connecticut and Drake lost in the first round, though I don't think many people prolly picked them losing so it prolly didn't hurt me too much. I have UCLA beating the winner of that game anyway.

Yeah, and it didn't hurt that the refs blew the call at the end of the game on the foul shot. But hey, it's only happened on 2 other occasions this season for UCLA, so that will benefit them. Knowing if they are in a close game at the end, the refs will bail them out.

That is true, but I always include national championships to the current conference, not former ones.

Yeah, well.... there's that. And I suppose you believe the conspiracy theory that John Wooden put in a call from the hospital for the refs to cheat, huh? I can hear the talk of (*) asterisks brewing now.

Memphis is still alive!

Not that I'm a fan, I'm just happy that some part of my bracket has worked out...

It surprised the hell out of me that they made it past texas...
