Just a thread to post picks and conversation as the tournament goes along

You can make a good case for any of the no. 1 or no.2 seeds to win the title, not much separation at the top.

Vegas odds loves Duke, so they are a good pick if you are in an office pool dominated by people that like to pick no.1 seeds to the Final Four. I hate Grayson Allen. I root for Duke to lose early every year no matter what my bracket looks like.

My double digit upset teams are Wichita St, Middle Tenn St, Rhode Island, and VCU.
I've got Arizona over Kentucky in the championship game, with Duke and Kansas rounding out my Final Four

Don't know jack shit about NCAA basketball but my bracket is doing well so far.

only 2 losses so far and both were teams I had losing in the next round anyway so there aren't any killers.

I'm so pissed that Cuse didn't get in I'm not even watching.

I have Nova and NC in my two pools. Wanted to do one with Arizona winning too, but never got around to it. I think they're all more tournament balanced than Duke though. I actually think Louisville is a good sleeper pick too.

Pretty good first round for my bracket, 28 out of 32 in first round including MTSU, Wichita St, Rhode Island. In tourney, favorites advancing even more than usual. See if things get less predictable in round 2.
