yeah i run a pool here at work, though this year i am getting help from the office manager, I just have too much going on to do it all by myself.


I'm debating going with florida, or one of the 4 seeds Louisville and michigan state both have teams capable of running the table.

but yeah there is a ton of teams that are all pretty much the same, there will be a lot of upsets in the first couple of rounds I believe.

I don't think the wichata state shockers have a strong enough team to get past the second weekend, they will win thier first round game, maybe the second, but their bracket is tough and I do not see them getting through the 2nd weekend.

I got Florida winning in a couple of mine...Michigan in another...and I think Louisville or Ohio St. in the others..all types of randomness.

No Indiana teams this year Sad

I think it's called the College Invitational, it's small, but i think I remember reading the coach turned it down saying we are Indiana and are a not interested.

you, if they weren't good enough to get in to wither of the other two, then get better, no sense playing just for the sake of playing.

Yea, I just kinda picked Villanova, they have a good offense, so if they can get hot, they should make a deep run.

yeah i don't even start adding up the scores until after sunday, then I divide the sheets up by who they have winning the championship, and put them in order of how many points they have.

My pool awards bonus points for underdog wins, so it gets a little complicated sometimes.

Luckily the office manager here helps, and we compare any sheets that don't add up.

and then he puts it all on Gin sheet, otherwise known as a excel spreadsheet

Not really, I just want to pull for one team, not forget who I am pulling for lol. I do the same thing with Fantasy Football, I refuse to draft from my division, so I never have to pull for a Bear,Lion, or Viking to do good. Cool

i'm still in, my wife father and fatherin law are also all still in.

we lost about 15 brackets over the weekend, but still have 42 left with a chance.

I have to add up all the scores and see who really has a chance, but 30 people picked florida to win, so right now i'm hoping for a florida loss

do you think that state could beat michigan again, they took the pac 10 title from the wolverines right??

believe me harvard is no slouch, they are a well coached experienced team. the mid major schools have the advantage of keeping most of their players for 4 years as opposed to the one and dones from the "major' colleges.

Plus most teams, if they are gonna get a tough game, get it in the first round when they think they just have to show up and the game is theirs. after they survive the scare, they realize you have put in the 40 minutes it takes to win a game.

seen alot of teams that should have won lose to teams of lesser talent.

it's what makes the tourney one of the best in sports, anybody can beat anybody on a particular night.

Your exactly right, that and the competition is a lot closer now for the mid majors than it ever has been.

Im pretty disappointed in the Big 12, 7 teams make the tournament, the most of any Conference, and no team made it out of the Elite Eight.
