Who's your team? How's your bracket? How about that Mercer/Duke game?

Which of the repetitive commercials on the internet stream do you like best?

I always forget to make a bracket, but I went to Duke and I am so disappointed/pissed.

THERE GOES MY ANNUAL FUND DONATION, DUKE.

I am working on my new annual donation to Mercer. Macon is a fine city.

I am not loving the new 2 minute review. The games are pretty slow with fouls in the last minutes anyway and I've yet to see possession overturned on review. Keep it moving!

Wooo! Michigan State!

We were watching the Wisconsin and Michigan State games simultaneously last night (Mr. Fizz is a huge badger (fine, badger fan. I prefer to think he's a giant badger)). So stressful! But turned out well, thankfully.

Yay, basketball!

my husband went to the games in Buffalo this past week. we were highly displeased when Syracuse lost last night.

our only consolation was Duke choked so early.

My team is out so I am at a loss as to who to pull for. Also, holy shiitake the last games last night were all blowouts.

I had Syracuse and Wichita St in the finals, so my bracket went down in flames this weekend. I'm just going to pretend I never filled one out...

my bracket on ESPN is the worst ive ever done. i think last time i checked i was in the like 24th %tile. i usually dont do too bad even though i dont know tons about all the teams but this year......yeah.....

i think i still have Louisville and FL in the final four so it's not a total disaster but damn near.

it was heartbreaking to watch Syracuse lose while my husband and his brother were at the game and i was watching with my in laws (outside Syracuse) but yeah they played like shiitake so no wonder they lost.

Badgers were insane last night.

MSU is making me really nervous today. We got on a roll end of the first half, but this second half has been ugly so far.

Truth. On Wisconsin. Today's games were quite messy.

i cant even pay attetion anymore my bracket is trashed. worst year ever for my picks. i think i did better back when i did a bracket based on what mascots i liked the best.

i think Florida will take the whole thing. as long as it's not the stupid Huskies i guess i dont care.

The last 3 teams to beat Florida are Wisconsin, UConn and Kentucky. We shall see.

Anybody getting revved up for brackets and all that? This week has all the conference playoffs, I think, which should be exciting!

i havent decided if im doing a bracket this year or not. the only reason i get into it is because my husband is super into it and i married into a big Syracuse basketball family and Syracuse barred themselves from post season play this year and all the nonsense with the NCAA has me cranky about it.

maybe ill go back to how i used to pick my brackets which was who had the best mascot.

Really? I somehow missed Syracuse getting barred from the post-season. What happened?

MSU is making me really nervous this year. We weren't all that great last season and this season has been worse, even in March...

they barred themselves.
there has been some investigation going on for like 8 years into players smoking pot and one player i guess submitted work his tutor had done or something to that effect.
apparently it was all coming to a head this year so Syracuse barred themselves from the post season. i think they were hoping the NCAA would think that was a good punishment and not punish them further but they came down with all sorts of crazy punishments that really dont fit the crime.
the punishment they received was worse than the one Penn State got for hiding a pedophile.
im not sayign they shouldnt have been punished it just seems super severe.

i might still do a bracket. i dunno.
but yeah no Syracuse in the tournament this year.

Weird. Sport team punishments tend to confuse me.

I don't usually bracket, just pick someone spur of the moment to cheer for. Maybe I will actually make one this year.

They need a 10 second shot clock. These games are moving too slow.

Yeah, I saw some of the Penn State/Iowa game and it was so boring I stopped watching. Hopefully the games are more exciting as we move through.
