    Thumbs up The Official 2008 NCAA Tournament Thread

    I don't care what anyone says, this is the best event in all of sports.

    I have Kansas, Temple, and Georgia in the first batch of games. Kansas and Georgia are looking good so far.

    Georgia/Xavier and MSU/Temple have the same halftime score. 35-26.

    Good games thus far. I have Xavier in the Elite Eight, so I'm a bit nervous right now. Georgia is playing very well.
    Take me out to the black, tell 'em I ain't coming back. Burn the land and boil the sea, you can't take the sky from me.

    Agree with Shade - this is the best 3 weeks of sports in the country. For me it's the best of anything except maybe the Olympics - I can get pretty fired up for that too.

    MSU putting the hammer to Temple, and Xavier has come back from 11 down to take a 3-point lead.

    Georgia is slipping vs. Xavier. That is irritating, I had Georgia winning the game. My logic was that Xavier had a lot of trouble with my school (George Washington) during one game this year, and GW wasn't even good enough to make their conference tournament.

    Bt Xavier won several games against ranked teams. They are battle tested, and pi$$ed off for letting Ohio State off the hook last year. I have them winning this one. I picked Kansas and MSU in the other early games, so if Xavier ends up winning this one I'm 3 for 3.

    LOL. Yes I actually do - I like to feel a part of things here in my office - plus it is a good excuse not to work. In fact, I have been drafted to keep track of the pool this year - luckily we have a pretty small office and only 17 participants.

    I like to give all you NCAA guys a hard time - the strange thing is years ago I would have agreed with you that the tournament was the best thing in sports - but somewhere in the early 90's I stopped following college ball and now I just get bored with the actual games. (and I cannot stand Billy Packer - he thinks the audience is dumb)

    I'm really looking forward to a couple of the games tonight though at least these are teams I've heard of and I know almost all the players too:

    Celts @ the Mavs - 8:00
    Lakers @ Utah - 10:30

    Should be a couple of great games.

    Yeah, none of my upset bids are coming through so far.

    Is it just me, or have there been fewer upsets in the last couple of tourneys?

    I actually picked every game correctly in today. I cant believe it. I have never done that before and dont expect it to happen tomorrow or for awhile that is.

    I mean they barely won. It was far from a sure thing. Jordan only played five minutes anyway.

    I took a beating in my bracket. Picked too many upsets.

    The favorites are 15-1 so far this year. That's astounding.
