Ha ha, we shall see after tonight. I have the potential to have 7 of the elite 8 if all my picks win tonight. The only one I missed yesterday was UConn, but that's all because of Washington losing to Purdue...if I had to pick between UConn and Purdue I would have gone with UConn for sure. Oh well! I'm still in last :mrgreen:

Lame, Missouri took a nap early in this game and never really could get it back under control. I'm over the NCAA tournament.

That aside, I am loving Demarre Carroll (as a player, just in case you were going to go there). He's smart and resourceful. I think he's an early second rounder that has a legitimate shot to make an NBA roster.

Watching the tourney this weekend, the 4 teams that advanced all look real good. Lawson is healthy, thus i give UNC the favorite tag. The other three are close behind. Thabeet is dominant, and his surrounding cast is real good. Price, Adrian, Walker all playing decent. They lost Davis earlier this year, and they look stronger. Then Mich State, they got Tom Izzo, IMO the best coach in the nation. He is the reason that this program has had more final four appearances than anyother program the last 20 years. Lastly, there is Villinova. They were that 4th team in the Big East that no one paid attention to this year... yeah that energetic, well balances squad from the toughest conference play maybe in college history. Yeah, there game.

This is gonna be FUN this weekend!

congrats to the lady cardinal.... making a second straight Final Four... i don't watch women's hoops much (the only game until today i watched this year was 10 minutes of Stanford vs. SDSU a couple weeks back) but they were dominant. No Candice Wiggins, no problem. The Big Appel scored a whomping 46 points, crushing Iowa State. Take that Saddam (office joke)!

So apparently no one played online tonight.

Tarheels win it all in an unbelievably convincing fashion, mostly because they're unbelievably awesome! :mrgreen:

Yup, Yup i knew my UNC tar heels would get it done, they established from the beginning of the season that they were the team to beat and proved it on monday night. They were just too talented and deep for every team they faced. Great win.

Congrats on the bracket too. Pretty much wire-to-wire for you.
