if you mean to imply UNC didn't deserve a 1 seed you are an idiot

88-70 in the biggest game of the year, and one ACC school was always going to get a 1 seed



I'm not an idiot for thinking Mizzou deserved it more than unc.

Mizzou's out of conference schedule was really weak plus they lost twice late in the season

UNC was red hot until Henson got hurt, and still almost came back against an insane shooting performance from FSU today

Really, Mizzou? They didnt even win their conference, I certainly would have put Kansas ahead of them (and the selection committee did). You're putting too much emphasis on the conference tourneys when lets be honest- none of the top teams care that much.

Oh sh*t, that turned out to be a pretty large picture. My bad.

no offense man but you only picked TWO lower seeds to win in the first round: UCONN and State

I don't know if that has ever happened

I know, but I didn't see any others I wanted to pick.

Although last year I went 26-6 in the first round, even with all of those random upsets. I also called the underdogs of UConn and Kentucky to make the Final Four and came second in the Huddle bracket challenge

Never question my motives!! :P

There are going to be a lot of upsets and mid-majors winning, but in the end the Final Four will be nothing but 1 and 2 seeds, IMO. Kentucky, Mizzou, 'Cuse, and Kansas.

You don't have to know CBB to do good in your bracket. I have often found the more you know, the more you overanalyze. I usually try to pick more upsets but sometimes going safe works out the best. I'll post my bracket in the next couple of days.

Last year my friends gf won a bracket I was in, she admitted she picked winners based on the team's colors she liked.

Wish Davidson would've gotten any of the other 4/5 seeds.

Last year, I picked 3 double digit seed upsets in the first round. I got all 3 correct (out of the 5 that actually happened). I also hit on half of the final four that didn't include a single 1 or 2 seed.

I'm not trying to say that you were saying I didn't know CBB, but there is method behind my Madness.

I think Indiana loses its first game. I think UConn loses to Iowa State. I think Vanderbilt makes the Final Four. And I think my Cats are going to hang number eight this year. That loss yesterday was exactly what they needed.
