I got butler too in my final 4... and my brother... didn't realize that was going to be a popular pick.

But yeah, had saint mary's gone a while ago, but i want them to go all the way. Gotta stick with NorCal!

EDIT: I saw you wrote baylor, and not butler.... I always been rooting for Baylor to lose. I don't root for anything texas (except texas tech)

Ohio St. busted my bracket. Damn you Volunteers.

Baylor actually helps my bracket, but damn I wanted to see the Gaels win so bad.

Was really pulling for Northern Iowa, but I'll always root for Tom Izzo(except last year).

And Baylor, please... take Duke out on Sunday.

0-4 on my picks today, yikes. Okay, 1-3 if you wanna count Baylor cause technically I did pick them on my bracket, it's just I wouldn't of minded if the Gaels won.

I'm happy just by not finishing last. I haven't been able to watch more than a couple of college games this year (hey, I wanted to see Wall badly...), so mine was more of a "blind bracket" than anything.

So it appears that the tournament is going to be expanded to 96 teams.

I really dont understand why they do nothing to change the post season that everyone hates (college football BCS) but DO change the one everyone feels is nearly perfect (NCAA field of 64).

64 teams is PERFECT. Why expand it? I was talking with my teacher the other day and we both agreed that it was ridiculous to expand it. 64 is a perfect number of teams. I can't imagine filling out a 96 team bracket. That is absurd.

Evan Turner won AP Player of the Year. He dominated the voting with 54 votes. John Wall had 9, Da'Sean Butler and Luke Harangody each had 1.

So Turner really is a great player and may well be a lock for the #2 pick

Duke vs Butler in finals

Duke has this in the bag, I'm praying they won't pull off a Warriors and lose it down the stretch

Go Butler!!!

What a story that would be. That place is going to be going CRAZY with Bulter fans. The whole state of Indiana are Butler fans on Monday along with about 95% of the country.

I know, they are much better than that 5 seed... Michigan State too... you got a big time offense vs a big time defense for the championship game... should be fun to watch (though i will be in class.... DAMN)
