So far been a good day for the Big 12. 3-0 with a chance to go 4-0.

Roundabouts are proof that people can still mess up no matter how simple a concept can be.

Ohio State can't win at Mackey Arena confirmed.
And Purdue can't win at Lucas Oil confirmed

Should have had Big Ten teams play in Bloomington. They're all used to winning there.
Hey, it worked for Rutgers, a school used to losing.

Nope. I had Ohio losing in the Round of 32 in both of them, so I'm only busted for one round. Actually doing quite well relative to normal, so I'mma day 1 brag about being in 1st place in our group (highest possible points), knowing that I'm about to be completely screwed and end up 12th place in the end.

My bracket was sitting in a dismal T-14th place out of 16 at one point last night. But I went 4/4 on the late wave of games, including two upsets. Now Iím back in the mix, up to T-6th.

It also might be worth noting that I have the second most maximum possible points of the group right now, as Iíve only lost one sweet 16 team (Ohio State) and still have all my elite 8 teams. Knock on wood.

LSUís 76-61 victory over St. Bonaventure moves eight of us into a tie for second place. An 8-way tie!

Covid makes its first interference of the tournament, eliminating VCU and costing me critical points. Awesome.

After going a career worst 17/32 in the round of 64, I have a lot less to lose this round so BRING ON THE CARNAGE!

I only had Illinois and Ohio State going so far that their losses don't hurt much. Two years ago I went 28-32 in the opening round, and ended up finishing last because I only got 1/8 Elite Eight teams. Final Four picks are worth 8x the points of any R64 game, and 7/8 of my E8 teams remain which is why even in last I'm not sweating it yet.

Syracuseís 75-72 upset win over West Virginia moves me into stand-alone first place at 270 points. But with my national champion pick (Illinois) out of the tournament, weíll see if it sticks.

I've got the only Baylor pick so I think I basically win if they win and lose if they lose.

Thanks. Arkansas, Villanova, and Syracuse came up big for me. Illinois, on the other hand . . . despite the fact that I have a 40 point lead, I feel that my only chance of winning, or even finishing in the top half for that matter, is if Gonzaga loses before they get to the national title game. Preferably to Iowa in the Elite 8, but Iíll take it however I can get it. Even though I have them beating OU, Iím rooting for them to lose today because Iím one of the only people in our group who doesnít have them in the Final Four.

The second weekend of the tournament begins with cl94 in the lead. Iím 10 points back in second place. Cl94 still has all four of his final four teams. Letís hope Alabama loses so that the rest of us have a chance.  :-D
