Never will happen, and I've seen that comment a lot from people that pick all 1 seeds.

hawg66:
I think Florida State is a sneaky good team with a sneaky good draw.
I have Duke, FSU, Tenner and NC. Duke to beat NC for the title.

jbcarol:
Louisville v. Minnesota is bizarre.

Richard Pitino's "birthright" v. the current school he is "doing time at"

jbcarol:
I don't think the ACC puts three in the Final Four.  They were overrated by the committee.

RaisinHog:
I'll take Kansas

WilsonHog:
Duke, North Carolina, Michigan, and Tennessee, with the Blue Devils beating the Tar Heels for the championship.

I plan to watch from 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. Gonna be an awesome day!

revolution:
I'm rooting for Texas Tech.  Not thinking that Beard will coach the Hogs in the future, although I'd really like to see it.

BannerMountainMan:
I wanna see a LSU and Duke sweet sixteen, I think Reid can handle Zion

LRhawg926:
I think LSU gets bounced in the second round. Maybe even first.

LRhawg926:
Kentucky, Gonzaga, Michigan State, and Virginia with Virginia taking the whole thing.

Yeah I didnít even think of that when I made my picks. Itís probably not likely. But Gonzaga is the weakest one seed in my mind. TTech, Michigan and FSU all have a shot from that region IMO.

RaisinHog:
God I hope Virginia gets bounced soon I can't stand watching that style of ball

jbcarol:
UK's PJ is walking around in a boot.  Don't know if Travis is near 100%.  They have a couple of tall and long 5-stars off the bench. Don't know if you can ride their narrower shoulders into April.

Best two days of the year, and Iíll watch more college basketball the next two days, than I have all year.

None weaker.  At least no one else got shipped to the West as a #1, but it would not have been a bad deal this year if winning the whole is your ultimate goal.

jbcarol:
Golden Gophers 38  Dirty Cards 33  Halftime CBS

Adam Stokes:
Duke, TT, Tennessee, Kentucky.

I have UNC getting upset before the elite 8 or else UK wouldn't have made it.

Kinda like how a #16 seed will never beat a #1 seed?

alohawg:
Duke, Gonzaga, Tenn, Kentucky

Tenn over Duke ftw

After Baltimore County won I quit doing brackets and picking DI basketball games.

The old coach's saying goes: "defense travels".

That UVA defense could have been cited for failure to appear.

I picked Louisville to win this game.  My bracket picking history suggests that Minnesota fans ought to be optimistic.

widespreadsooie:
Sparty, Texas Tech, UVA, and Auburn

Sparty over UVA

hawginbigd1:
Upsets, who you got? I am going Belmont, Vermont, and Murray State today.

jabberjawls:
Duke, Gonzaga, Villanova, KANSAS

RazorPiggie:
In which bracket lol?

hogfan14:
Little OT but just noticed Arkansas is featured in one of the AT&T commercials playing against Purdue that airs nearly every commercial break. Pretty cool.

Minnesota getting much more offense than i thought they were capable of, they may win it. They are pretty solid defensively.

All four #1 seeds did advance to the Final Four in 2008 (Memphis, UCLA, Kansas, UNC).  That was the year Stephen Curry almost took Davidson to the Final Four by himself.

hawg66:
First round upsets I picked Minnesota. Murray State, Oregon.

These Gophers haven't seen a ray of sunshine since Clem Haskins got sent packing to the tobacco farm in Taylor County.

Unfortunately only three did not have to vacate their achievement though the memory remains in the hearts of the fanbase.

Not sure the UNC players were truly carrying a full course load either based on their own admission, or in his words, "word".

elksnort:
For the first time in my adult life, I have not even seen a bracket.

Let me guess. UNC, Villanova, Duke, Kansas.

The same ole same ole...

Dwight_K_Shrute:
Pulling for NMSU.  As much as I hate to say these words.  Go Aggies.

Two outta four ain't bad.

Got the letter "V" correct on the third option.

KU failed the win the Big XII in the Self-ish not going to Arkansas era.  They are facing some serious external pressure that may or may not come to anything.

Committee picked a token West Coast team who failed to win their weak conference tournament.

PossumFan:
FSU, Michigan State, UVa, Kentucky.

Wahoos over Sparty for the title.

Rudy Baylor:
Duke, Gonzaga, Tennessee, Houston

The Pocahontas Porker:
Michigan St . Gonzaga Tennessee an North Carolina . Gonzaga beats North Carolina in the championship  game 84-78

ballinhog:
Duke, Gonzaga, Tennessee and Auburn.

Tennessee beating Duke for title. Didnít want to pick Duke like everyone else

Hog-Corleone:
East - Arkansas...oh, wait, never mind...
West - Arkansas...oh, wait, never mind...
South - Arkansas...oh, wait, never mind...
Midwest - Arkansas...oh, wait, never mind...

Who cares...

jbcarol:
First year that Richard Pitino advanced farther than his old man.

jbcarol:
Chris Mack starts 0-1 in NCAA-T play at UofL.

alohawg:
They're gonna lose, but Yale has some great shooters.

ErieHog:
This is an unusually hard tournament field to handicap.  I'm not surprised that chalk picks are dominating brackets.

I had a FF of Kentucky, Duke,  Gonzaga, and Kansas State. Murray State was the only double digit seed I had reaching the S16.  No real Cinderella types, for me this year.

jbcarol:
Lackluster start to the tourney for those who chose to get the big snip earlier this morning.

Biggest suspense thus far is whether Yale would cover against LS.  They did.

That was exactly my four, with Duke beating UNC in the final.

However, my wife's Yorkie made his picks based on mascots--dogs won, cats lost, things like gophers and cardinals and bison and bruins, he pretty much picked the higher seed.   His final four was Gonzaga Bulldogs,  Mississippi State Bulldogs, Gardner-Webb Bulldogs and his national champ:  Wofford Terriers.

Given how I've done in brackets in the last few years, that stupid mutt may beat me.

Aubby trying to give one away.
