i figured we could dedicate a thread since enough people have made their own bracket predictions to chat about how things are going, talk about their homer picks, possible upset predictions, etc...
my homeritis stepped in and i actually have washington and gozaga facing off in the elite 8, with gonzaga advancing to the final four.
cincinnati is my darkhorse choice, i chose them to beat kentucky and advance to the elite 8 as well, losing to duke.
so far i goofed up with my pittsburgh pick, although UTEP is at least hanging in their against utah and boguts monster opening performance.

I played it safe on my brackets, for the most part.

Although, I believe I did choose Villanova over UNC in the elite 8. It's very possible Nova could fall to New Mexico, so hopefully that doesn't happen.

I have Nova over UNC as well.

For today, I haven't missed any so far, but I have Iowa over Cinci, which isn't looking good at the half, so I'm probably going to lose one there.

so far I've lost Bama (who i had upsetting BC) and Pitt (1 and done anyways)...

I picked all the 1st half leaders to win in the 2nd set of game, so maybe my day can turn around a little bit...

i had bama taking bc as well, and pittsburgh getting outside by washington in the second. definately a poor way to start the tourney off for me.

Washington better not lose!!! History is on our side.
washington was absolutely on fire to start, but have definately lost a spark since. however, their still extending the lead out again even with very poor play on their part. We just have too many qaulity jump shooters to lose this one.

Iowa has cut the gap in the 2nd half, hopefully they can pull it out.

So much for Alabama upsetting anyone... you'd think they could after a better regular season!

5-12, but I thought that was NM's thing this year.

yea their making a damn good run now, but when the game switched over for a bit at half time, it just looked like utep wasn't stepping up to the plate for ****. a steal on their end of the floor and it ended up like a 1on4 for utah on the other end, nobody was even in the screen racing to get back or anything. Utah is definately gonna shoot themselves in the foot if they just keep settling for 3's however, which is just what utep needs to get back in it.
