Vanderbilt and New Mexico through and I go to 6/8. Have Kentucky, Wichita State, Zags and Baylor in the next 4(all favorites). Baylor and Wichita State need to wake up. I have them in Sweet 16 and Elite 8 respectively.
Please believe that any success I might have with a bracket is like the success one of those school picking chickens. Other than March Madness, I watch like 2 college basketball games all year, then I throw darts (except picking the high seeds to make in through to the Sweet 16 at least).
The only real "research" I do is try to find the 4/13 and 5/12 upset(s) of the year. And since there's one or two ever year, I read ESPN to try to see which one is most likely and take that game. Which is why I had VCU yesterday, and why I have Belmont advancing today.
Actually I think I have Belmont as this year's shocker team, getting to either the Sweet 16 or the Elite 8 (16, IIRC). Why Belmont? Only the chicken knows.
Had my picks done in time but didn't finish the listening to the show until after the games started so couldn't join. The group locks at the time of the first game on Thursday which is less than 24 hours after the show can be downloaded.
