I haven't checked my yahoo mail in a decade or so. I see the NBA.com has been sending me at least one email a day. It's going to take me a long time to get through all those.

Congrats to PilotNut on signing up for the bracket challenge. Maybe next year he'll actually pick some teams Embarassed

Everyone else is still tied for first.

Actually Pilot2002 missed a pick too. I guess it appropriate that his bracket name is better than last. Evil or Very Mad

Failed to sign up again. This is the first year I have not made a bracket anywhere in a long time.

Oh man... too many brackets, each one on a different system... ESPN, Yahoo!, CBS, etc... I lost track of this one!

Oh well, I will at least save myself the public shaming here.

Some how work got in the way even with our boys playing on a Saturday. I will be in Vegas next weekend and will be sure to indulge in a bucket of beers. Plural buckets depending on how this year's bracket holds up.

This may be the height of my bracket success this year, so I'd like to take this opportunity to gloat about being one of three remaining perfect PN brackets.

Take that, suckers! Cheers!

What, nobody saw AR Little Rock coming? Too bad I had Purdue to the S16.

Did you geniuses pick Yale because you have huge brains?

Picking the Shockers? I figured playing a game, traveling and then playing another game in 3 days would be to much. Nice call.

If you had any confidence in the Zags you'd still be number 1.  As it is, Double Dipper is our leader after day 1.

Mattywizz and Andrew (I can't match him to a PN moniker) are bringing up the rear.

Me?  It looks like the other DD, DampDuffer edged ahead yesterday.

......and it looks like DD has a couple of long shots today, like Pitt and Stephen F. Austin, so anything can happen.

So its a good thing I messed up my brackets... I have Mich. St. winning it all in all my other brackets. Sad

What a great win by MTSU--lead the whole way. Basketball

This morning, there were many perfect brackets from yesterday on the Yahoo site. But the Spartan loss took care of that, and no clean sheets remain. Everyone has at least one loss.

So far today, more lower seeds have won than lost (4 of 6), although it looks like OU and Maryland will even it up before the evening games.

I just read that 99.999% of the brackets were busted the first night.

It was 94% within the first five hours.

That's 99.99995% busted.

I think Warren Buffet's money is safe again this year.

Update: with So. Dakota State's loss, there are no perfect ESPN brackets left.

OK, I'm also the DampDuffer, but looking at the predictions and matchups as the Tournament moves ahead, I can hardly claim the bracket.  Still kicking myself for changing from Virginia to Michigan St. to go to the final, and for using my heart instead of my head in choosing Cal over Hawaii.

Still a number of players in the game, and it would seem "Angela" has a good chance of finishing everyone off with her final four teams still in contention.

Darn, my Cinderella team, the Shockers from Wichita St, lost to Miami U. today.  After scoring only 19 points WSU rallied from 17 down to go up by 1, but in the end, the Miami swamp swallowed the Shockers by 8.

I know all of us have had our bracket busted numerous times so far, but we're obviously not alone.....Yahoo, CBS, and ESPN are all now saying there are no perfect brackets left.  But NCAA.com is saying they have 1 left.....hmm, really? Shocked

Warren Buffett doesn't have to pay the $1M/year for life.  warren-buffett-s-million-bracket-prize-will-go-unclaimed

They had to have a clean bracket to the Sweet 16.  20 wins was the best anyone could do; the last two guys went out on the Mich. St. loss.

What a weekend of games.  Poor Northern Iowa has worse ELOB plays than the Pilots.  Talk about epic meltdown.  

DampDuffer is still in first place. Fan4life, who always seems to be in the mix, has the most possible points.  

Pilot2002's bracket is not better than last!  Terry has the fewest possible points.  Pilotnut is undefeated!

The Scenario Generator says I still have a snowball's chance to win this thing.
