Actually ...

I had a very bad feeling about that game and the way Duke has played this year. But I couldn't pick against Duke in the first round. Oh well. Go Hoyas.

I didn't expect them to get very far either, but never would have thought they'd bowed out so early. Go HOGS!!

I consider myself a pretty casual college basketball fan - haven't watched more than a few complete games all season, not really rooting for any one team, basically tuned in while I was on the treadmill last evening. So I decided to fill out a bracket on ESPN - just to see what would happen . . .

And I had a PERFECT DAY 1!

I'm pretty pumped about that. But bummed because the ESPN leaderboard only lists 50 perfect scores (I hope they fix this glitch.) If you don't believe me, check out this link where you can download a screenshot of my bracket. Check out my stats: PTS: 160 PCT: 100.0 RK: 1

How cool is that?

North Carolina is looking particularly strong in the tournament. As much as I hate to say it, they could make a run.
