I just love March Madness! It is one of my favorite holidays of the year!
Today marks the first round of the tourney, and the first four days are typically the craziest and most exciting. Wild upsets, last minute three
pointers for the win, crushing alley-oops, we will see it all today my friends!
Anyone have predictions for an underdog team? Who do you have going all the way? Which 12-5 upset will happen this year?
I always have to remind myself that these are really just kids playing on such a large stage. Must be thrilling and nerve-racking all at once. I do
get all emotional watching these talented youth.
Will be updating my thread throughout the day. Please do the same if you are watching. Would love to hear your thoughts on this first day of March
I'm rooting for UVM (one of the underdogs) because I'm a lifelong Vermonter, I went to that school (didn't graduate but did use some of my credits
from there towards the degree I have). My 2 surviving siblings are both UVM graduates and my father works for the school too - major UVM fans, all of
Last time UVM got this far was years ago with Taylor Coppenrath in the early 2000s.
Whatever happens, I'm happy to see they've made it this far!
YES! Filled out my "Sheet of Integrity" last night. Me beloved Buckeyes sucked this year and are out of it but I still love this time of year. I have
Villanova repeating as champs. However, since I am a Buckeyes fan, I always cheer on the BIG teams.

I like the 'Cuse, but seeing as they are not in either.. gotta go with someone else too.
I spent a great deal of my youth living in NoVA, and am a Virginia fan.
Sorry to say I have VA beating Villanova in the Sweet 16. We shall see, it's a long shot I know.
Have fun and good luck on your bracket!
Crazy, I just love these sports analysts who have the inspiration and creativity to look into these matters.
About to read the article now, but a brief skim shows multiple instances, more than the odd coincidence. Interesting!
I will think twice before second guessing you again, Augustus.

Have so much fun with your little one this year! My dad, bro and I love watching the games together. One of my best family vacations was 8 years ago
when we were in Charleston SC/Savannah GA for St Patty's day and March Madness. Good times.
She started playing ball at age 4 and we spent years with travel ball. Those were some of the most fun times we had. The coaching aspect, time with
the teams...boys and girls and of course, winning championships.
She gave it up believing she couldn't maintain a good grade average and the demanding schedule of playing for a travel team year round. 6 day a week
practices morning and afternoons as well as games 1(in county) to 5 or 6 times (across the state) per week.
Sorry for rambling on...close to my heart and could ramble always...go I'll move on!
Good luck to you team (s).
