    Default And how are YOUR brackets doing?

    I'm at 750 points and the 97%th percentile on ESPN, but my brackets are pretty dismal. Apparently, just less dismal than everyone else's. I had Louisville-Miami at the Championship (Miami has proven me wrong...). I did OK in the Midwest and South but terrible in the West (except for Ohio State). And how are YOUR brackets doing?

    I threw my bracket in the trash last week.

    My main problem is that my loyalties to certain schools outweigh my common sense.

    My other problem is that I didn't count on so many spoilers.

    At this point, all I can say is Go Shockers!

    Was wondering when someone would mention the NCAA's.

    I don't officially have brackets entered anywhere, so don't know the percentages. But am an SU fan, and just watching that Big East final, I had put SU and Louisville in the NCAA final. Although with Louisville back on top once again , even though I'll always root for SU. And will be over the moon for Boeheim if they win. Other than those two, most of my teams took a nosedive early.

    As a UNC loyalist (I work in the med school) - it was difficult...but practical...to be realistic about how far they'd go. Alas... As long as Duke doesn't win...

    I don't do the bracket thing. I just really enjoy watching the games. Unlike the pros, I cheer for both sides as I just can't cheer against any of these kids playing so hard and with such heart. I hate seeing any of them lose! I was rooting for Duke today, only because I tend to pick the underdog, but Louisville clearly deserved the win. We've had fun watching, except the scary leg break .

    Well, the only consolation is that many are in the same boat. Who had Wichita State? Or FGCU getting to the Sweet 16? So you still have a chance.

    I had Louisville and Indiana. Half my bracket looks good, the other half not so much. Hats off to Florida Gulf Coast for bustin' everyone's brackets. I love the underdog. Except when it comes to my tourney brackets.

    Dear Lord, what a tragedy for that poor boy. That was awful. Praying for a speedy recovery for him.

    I couldn't figure out how the announcer on CBS kept saying the poor kid dislocated something. There isn't a joint there!

    SO is pulling for Syracuse, and I'll be rooting for Wichita State, but I suspect Louisville can't be beat. Will be watching next weekend!
