My Bracket = Busted!
So who else just had their whole thing ruined by Kansas losing to Northern Iowa??
Anyone? OF COURSE! More like Everyone...Jeez, I don't even care anymore.
My Bracket is Dead.
They were my Pick to Win it All! But...This is Why I love March Madness. (:
This is a Bit Premature, but with 5 Seconds left...I'm Pretty sure it's over.
Wow..... I can't believe it... I had them going all the way...
Great game.. Great comeback..
This sucks...although I'm a Kentucky fan, I've always been partial to Kansas...I feel so bad for Collins :(
I picked UK to win it all though. I never thought Kansas was as unbeatable as everyone thought
Not mine, haha.
In the two brackets I made, I had either Duke or Kentucky winning it all. Got to feel sorry for Kansas though, #23 looked crushed.
Who was 23? I think he felt worse than everyone else and he didn't even play
I think 23 is CJ Henry who is Xavier Henry's brother. Though, I think everyone is vulnerable. Out of all the teams that have advanced to the sweet 16 so far I like UNI the most, Baylor 2nd, Butler 3rd.
#23 was Mario Little.. He's was a senior..
A lot of people called the upset on ESPN tournament challenge....I had them either losing in the final to Kentucky or the final 4 to Syracuse but they didn't have the toughness over Syracuse or the swagger of Kentucky to win it all IMO.....
I'm shocked. They looked like the shiitt that couldn't be flushed all season long in the Big 12...I'm shocked that they lost, but I did think that Northern Iowa would make it close because of their shooting and precision. Just not enough to get the win. I hate Kansas as a K-State fan, but this loss messed up my bracket pretty bad, so this is a bittersweet thing for me..
This aint my first rodeo. I've grown immune to feeling anything when my bracket goes up in flames. It's been happening to me for over a decade. I don't even look at my bracket after the first weekend anymore.
I never let my bracket effect how i root for teams during the tournament. My rooting always goes like this:
2-rest of Pac 10
Like I said the other day, I will gladly watch my bracket go up in flames if it means little mid major teams beating favorites.
This is how I root for teams:
2. Kansas (If they're not playing UK)
3. Any team with a bunch of white guys
This is the first year I've taken my bracket seriously. I'm in a bracket pool with 20 friends, and the winner gets a G (it cost $50 to enter). I have a pretty solid lead, but Ohio State losing tomorrow could mess things up for me. I always root for local (NJ,NY,PA,CT) teams. As far as picking for the tourney, I pick the team that has better defense, rebounding and fundamentals (glad I picked St. Mary's today), unless there's a huge advantage otherwise. I did have a bit of trouble picking because I haven't seen most of the teams in the tourney play at all this year.
