    Amazing so far; 4 of the first 5 games went down to a last second shot. Morehead State with a stunner over Louisville was the first upset.

    I would say Louisville was the first major upset. I venture to say no one predicted that one.
    I don't know how many predicted Temple's victory over Penn State (although I did in my bracket).
    Granted, that is only a 7 beating a 10.

    I predicted an upset in the same bracket as Louisville, although not Louisville.
    I have Richmond upsetting Vanderbilt, which would be a 12 beating a 5. We shall see.
    I guarantee you both Richmond and Vanderbilt like facing Morehead St in the next round.

    Temple wasn't an upset; they had the higher seed and were a 2 1/2 point favorite in Vegas.

    Vandy's bricking free throws and now down by 3 with a minute to go.

    oh, you are correct on Temple. My eyes are crossed looking at this tiny bracket.

    Well, at least I am 7-1 through the first 8 games, but there is a long way to go.

    I missed the two upsets and had Penn State beating Temple, so not a great start.

    Belmont's one of my upset picks against scoring challenged Wisconsin.

    Well, went 6-2 in the night games. I chose Michigan State to beat UCLA and
    Missouri to beat Cincinnati and lost both, but won the other 6.
    All in all 13-3 isn't too bad. However, my bracket sustained some damage since
    I had Michingan state going to the regional finals before they lost, so that will hurt.
    I also have Gonzaga going deep as well in their bracket...just a hunch on my part.

    Of course, there is still a long way to go.
    Plus I will be pulling for Texas to go farther than I predicted.
    But sentiments and bracket picking cannot go hand in hand.

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but I don't see OSU making it to the finals even.

    Kansas and Duke will be the final two teams, IMO

    Obama is following the liberal philosophy. What you do is try the same thing over and over again hoping for a different result.

    I can't help if you tag along.
