    Re: 1st Round losses

    I've got the same three losses, luckily I had St. Mary's, USC and Drake losing in the next round so it doesn't hurt me much in the long run.

    I'm 15-5, missing on Miami, Purdue, Kent St, Kansas State and Wazzu. Today's looking a lot better.

    Re: 1st Round losses

    It sucks that those people that went chalk are doing so well. The tourney has been kind of bland on upsets the last two years.

    Yeah... I have gone "chalk" before and it never worked out... So I picked a bunch of 1st round upsets, since most don't go to 3rd round it can't hurt too much.

    Yeah its been really boring. Well with the exception of Iowa losing to Northwestern State!

    A couple of years ago I was in the middle of the pack in a fantasy football league after a few weeks in. I decided one week to pick chalk just to see what would happen, and I did well. I wondered what would happen if I did that every week, so I kept at it. At the end of the season, who was the winner?.... yeah me.

    Re: 1st Round losses

    I had 7 yesterday and 1 today so far I think. Luckily USC was the only one I had winning another game so still have 15 teams intact at the moment for the sweet 16.


    Go Cubs Go!
