There must be a clerical error... my Hoosiers seem to have been left out by accident. ;)

Is there a list of all of the prior-year winners? (We need a plaque! Or perhaps a travelling trophy. LOL)

It was bound to happen sooner or later!

#16 seed UMBC took down #1 seed Virginia!

This is the first time a 16 seed has taken down a #1 in Tournament history.

The Cubs win a World Series and now this...............crazy days!

We have two entries currently tied for first place with 250 points.

The pack is still very close behind.

20 points will be awarded for a win today and on Sunday so the leaderboard will certainly see some movement.

Enjoy the games today and HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY ! ! ! ! !

I am ready for the Florida vs Texas Tech game tonight!

Our friends from across the street who went to Texas Tech invited me and Tiffany over for a BBQ and the game.

Should be fun!

Randy is still in 1st place with 390 points!

WELL DONE!

But, there are several within a game or two of 1st place.

4 people so far have lost their national champion pick, me included.

The Florida loss to Texas Tech was a tough pill to swallow.

The games start up again today at 11am CST.

Bummer to see the Gators fall. I had them picked into the big 8.

It was a CRAZY weekend in the Tournament!

1, 2 & 3 seeds were dropping like flies.

Yashoe and AU9999 are tied for 1st place with 420 points.

But, don't despair just yet!

Several people are still in a great position to move right up the leaderboard as points for a win DOUBLE this Thursday and Friday to 40.

Once Villanova loses to Purdue, I will be in decent shape,

Congrats on the big Florida win... oh wait, is Florida State a different school? :D
