What do you think?

Isn't it funny how the first week you want the team you picked in your bracket to win no matter what and as the tournament goes on you just want to see good games and don't really care. By the 2nd week I find myself watching the game and just wanting the under dog or a team a really like more than who I picked. I think the drama of the tournament really starts sinking in. By the 3rd week you are just overwhelmed by the madness and forget you even made a bracket (and probably have had no chance since the 2nd week) and just enjoy the pure basketball drama that is March Madness. I bring this up because in other sports like Pro Footbal or Basketball or even College Football, I always just want the team I picked to win no matter what and sometimes would rather just see them win rather than see a good game because I'd be worried that my team would lose in a close game. Is it that the NCAA Tournament is just soooo amazing and dramatic and maddening that you just get overwhelmed by it and lose all biases associated with the teams you picked or is it that mostly everyones brackets are just ruined after the first week anyways due to the unpredictability of it? What do you think?

Nah man. I play to win it

Nah man.

I play to win it all.

If you know what you're doing you don't make stupid picks like Mizzou (serious lack of size and depth) and Duke (lack of a playmaker in the point) in the Final Four.

I've got a shot at going 8/8 in my Elite Eight and 4/4 in my Final Four.

This is a science son.

Another idiotic Final Four

Another idiotic Final Four pick that I saw all over the place was Florida State.

I don't care that they beat Duke and UNC. Good luck picking a team that lost to Princeton at home, got murdered by Clemson, lost to BC, and almost lost to Virginia Tech twice...

...to go to the Final Four. Not gonna happen. You can't take the good without the bad and lock onto the quality wins and ignore the horrid losses.
