    It's Official...

    Not even through the first day and my bracket is screwed. How is everyone else doing?

    Perfect so far, but it wasn't that tough.

    Of my 13 or so brackets I got 1 all right so far. Of course that is the only one I really tried on so no biggie.

    Re: It's Official...

    I am fairly certain I have picked them all correctly... if you mix and match all my brackets. Pretty sure that not a one of them is 100% correct, thanks largely to the fact that I thought Temple would take out Michigan State. I never put faith in the Big Ten to do well. MSU scored 36 points at Iowa... was it so wrong of me to pick against them?

    Re: It's Official...

    Not sure how your brackets can be screwed up already. Did you pick upsets in all the games or something?

    Didn't you hear, you have to be really smart to pick all 8 games right.

    Yeah, I rolled the dice a little. If they had panned out, I'd be hailed as a genius. As it stands now, not so much

    Re: It's Official...

    I've actually picked every tournament game correctly, all the way through, except nobody knows it yet.

    I'll change this story as many times as necessary to be cool!

    6 for 7 so far. The one upset I had picked was (9) Kent St over (8) UNLV, and Kent St went and screwed that up by scoring 10 points in the half.

    Re: It's Official...

    I've only missed the Purdue game. I mean really, if we could beat Purdue (I know it was early in the year, but still) then Baylor should have beaten them.

    There I go again, wearing my Big 12 pride and Little 11 hatred on my sleeve...

    Unfortunately the Little 11 has owned the Big 12 in head to head games this year. Something like 7-3....embarrasing.

    Sucks doesnt it? I picked Purdue to win because I felt Baylor was skidding. However my heart told me to pick my B12 bretheren. Stupid heart. I never listen to you anymore.
