(ESPN)   How will your brackets get broken? Why do they insist on calling the first round the second round? Where is Kentucky? Better late, than never, it's your official March Madness discussion thread   (scores.espn.go.com) divider line 35

bionicjoe: NaziKamikaze: Wasn't there some kid with autism or some other affliction that picked everything perfect to the Elite 8 or something 3 years ago (Duke vs. Butler in championship)?  Pretty sure that I remember reading that on Fark, and that he had the correct teams in the CG.

Key line: Herrmann entered his bracket on CBSSports.com's Bracket Manager, which does allow users to change their picks after games are completed

robsul82:
New Mexico was a sexy pick in some quarters, Hahvahd could end up pissing a lot of people off here.

A bunch of assholes from Hahvahd ruining everything? WHY I NEVER.

KiwDaWabbit: Supes: Perfect brackets remaining in ESPN Tournament Challenge (of ~8.14 million entries), after:

Michigan State over Valpapraiso  - 7,806,620
Butler over Bucknell - 6,321,459
Wichita St. over Pittsburgh - 1,918,510
Saint Louis over New Mexico St. - 1,699,018
Memphis over Saint Mary's - 1,362,660
Marquette over Davidson - 1,182,157
Gonzaga over Southern - 1,176,957
Oregon over Oklahoma St. - 448,676
Michigan over SDSU - 419,852
Louisville over N. Carolina A&T - 419,236
Arizona over Belmont - 322,529
California over UNLV - 85,683

Down to under 100K!

Has anyone had a perfect bracket since the field expanded to 64 (or 65 or 68)?


I'm pretty sure there are huge stories when someone gets a perfect first weekend.

I could've sworn some autistic kid had the first weekend completely right and espn did a story on him a few years ago.

bionicjoe: Torrent of Rubbish: bionicjoe: Reason #4849543798453 I can't stand corporate America.
All the NCAA tournament floors re-branded with NCAA logos, black lines, and blue letters so they're all the same.
Part of the fun was watching all the different teams on different floors. Wildcats vs. Wildcats on a 3rd Wildcats' floor. Sycamores vs. Salukis on the Sooners' floor.

Assholes.

According to some sports writer's tweet, a Belmont player was told that he couldn't sit with his teammates if he didn't pour his Powerade into an official NCAA Gatorade bottle. Second-hand info, but I'll support it because it feeds my existing opinion of the NCAA.

Posted this to FB too and got this reply from a reliable source.
They require people in the press room to pour their drinks into NCAA-approved cups. 

*sigh*


Yeah, this has been in a few press sources as well. They can't even have BOTTLED WATER without some officially-branded NCAA sponsor on it.

oh that's for sure a true story.  never fark with the corporate sponsorship.  it's one thing if the ncaa wants to brand itself as the owners of ugly ass black and blue trimmed courts, but players better not fark with the money flowing to the ncaa.  the old men in charge would be very upset.  might be a major violation and suspension for life.

mitchcumstein1: They only had like 19 NBA players on that team, yeah, they were solid.


Please, it was only 9 players, and Wayne Turner and Jeff Sheppard didn't even last a year in the NBA!

But yeah.... a couple other teams had around 5 NBA players, sometimes plus a marginal player (2007 Florida, 1999 Duke, 2009 Carolina, 2004 UConn). But that UK team was crazy in they had 7 players who ended up having real NBA careers, plus 2 more who at least made it to the league briefly.

bionicjoe: mitchcumstein1: Louisville is going to hammer these folks.

Pitino was a master at dominating an even slightly weaker team. Just crush their spirit.
However while at UK he was below 20% in games decided by less than 5 points. Actually got down to 15% once.
NBA helped. He's still weak in close games as a coach.


They didn't have many close games once he got them rolling at Kentucky.
