Kelly Olynyk is having a nice

Kelly Olynyk is having a nice game, but boy has he been whining at the official's all game. Oh and thanks to the committee for motivating my Ducks so much.

darn! i really wanted to see

darn! i really wanted to see history with the sixteen seed. at the same time though, i would rather it happen to a number one in a major conference someday instead of a mid major number one seed. anyways, someday it's bound to happpen.

5 minutes left and it looks

5 minutes left and it looks like Marcus Smart has given up, his body language is awlful.

NOOOOOOOOO! I had Southern

NOOOOOOOOO!

I had Southern beating Gonzaga...peep MikeyV's pool!

I honestly saw no disparity in talent level. Gonzaga is probably the worst 1 seed of all-time.

You also said Pitt was one of

You also said Pitt was one of the 15 best teams in America and they looked garbage all game.

They were a top 15 team

They were a top 15 team heading into today. Peep their entire body of work. But alas, they didn't show up. Literally couldn't make a shot.

No disparity in talent level?

No disparity in talent level? I'm pretty sure Southern doesn't have guys that will play for their country on their team. I'm sure they have no future draft picks on their team. C'mon. Gonzaga has way more talent. Whether or not Gonzaga is the worst 1 seed of all time, the fact remains that 16's don't beat 1's. Southern played the game of their lives and in the end, talent took over. Southern had trouble creating their own shot in the end whereas Pangos created separation for an open 3.

Mine too. I had them winning

Mine too. I had them winning a couple games. I bought into Marcus Smart being able to carry them through a few by himself.

This Mich/SD ST game is

This Mich/SD ST game is interesting to me with the Burke vs Wolters matchup. I've watched Wolters a couple of times this year and I think he could be a legit backup in the league for years to come, the outcome of this game will definitely have an effect on both players' draft stock.

I had Oklahoma St going to

I had Oklahoma St going to the elite 8. I honestly thought with Smart's offensive skill set, paired with his defense that he could carry them there. Oh well. My bracket's trashed.

it's hard to watch just one

it's hard to watch just one game at a time. i got three going here, glad one is finishing half time. michigan, arizona, and unlv games are all close.

it's official, pac twelve is

it's official, pac twelve is legit. oregon first, then zona takes care of business. now cal is going down to the wire against a tough unlv team. crabbe came to play. although anthony bennett isn't having a bad game, he still has not wowed me yet. he began the season with a bang and has left me questioning how high his draft stock is ever since. he's good, but is he top five good? he has at least been considered top five for a while but still not sure and not sure isn't a good sign when talking top five.

What do you do the day after

What do you do the day after you receive a 10 year $20 million contract extension?

Get eliminated by 14-seeded Harvard.

Pathetic, Steve Alford. Just pathetic. Way to wait until 10 minutes left in the 2nd half to go man-to-man against a team who relies on perimeter shooting.

after day 1

Through the ups and downs of opening day, my bracket took a couple hits. I had 5 sweet sixteen teams knocked out (Oklahoma State, Pitt, New Mexico, Bucknell, and UNLV). But the good thing is that is the deepest eliminated team I have so I still have all my elite eight teams in the tourny. The one game that is really gonna help me out is if Wichita beats Gonzaga, as I had Pitt beating Gonzaga. So if Gonzaga loses it will hurt most peoples brackets but not mine, and after how shaky the Zags looked against Southern, I could see this happening.

How's everyone else after Day 1?
