than all that political BS –

Andy Katz on ESPN Motion is predicting UTEP to to be the first 13 seed to uspset a #4 seed. I’d dig it.

BTW – The UT System has three schools in the round of 64 (Austin, El Paso, and San Antonio). Texas Tech is there, too, making four schools from the Lone Star State. But UConn’s going all the way this year, baby (Just kidding – I grabbed OK State to win.)

Last item – Pontiac’s advertising for the Tournament features clips of great NBA tourney performances by Lew Alcindor (Soon to become Kareem Abdul-Jabar, all time great super-super star), Patrick Ewing, and others. No mention of Pontiac until the very end of the commercial. Cool, cool, cool. I’m hoping they’ve got Bird/Magic as well. (And did I mention the Cheerleader Challenge?). They’re running a promo for “The Natural”, too –

The next two weeks are the finest in American sport, IMO – NCAA’s leading through the opening day of Baseball. When I’m president, today and tomorrow will be national holidays. And Dickie Vital will be the patron saint.

Looks like the UTEP upset isn’t going to happen. But it looks like we’re going to see the traditional 12-5 upset w/ Manhattan over Florida.

Beautiful, baby.

Manhattan pulled it out! And UTEP is knotted with about 2 minutes to go!

I LOVE this game!

BYU almost knocked off Syracuse, which would have been two 12/5 upsets in the first round.

Good tourney, and I haven’t seen a play yet…

Princeton was beating UT at the half. Texas came back to win the game handily, though.

See, now why would anyone pay for cable when we have this thread?

This is saying something: I’m ahead in the Yahoo! bracket system with jank and another sports fan, AND ahead in our office pool of five people — three of whom are sports fans.

So, the whole BBall bracket system is luck.

That’s what makes March Madness the greatest! It’s a bunch of single games, set up so that underdogs have a shot at greatness. I’m sucking hind teat in most of my pools, but hey! the tournament is phenomenal this year.

Update: I am currently tied for first in the small Yahoo!P’em I’m in, with 1 in 4 odds to win. At work, I’m in first and can only lose if Duke takes it all-the-way.

Oh, funk me.

OK State goes down like a drunk tri-Delt, and UConn is losing to the Blue Devils at the half. What was left of my brackets is shot.
