Default Basketball Tournament -- Anyone else got Duke?

So 85% of my league chose Kansas, which was great for me. The 12% had Kentucky, and the rest were the strange Syracuse and stupid hometown Terp fans that always think Maryland has a chance.

I am the LONE Duke pick in the entire thing. I've got only 32 games right, and (up until the sweet 16) was DEAD LAST.

Now, $250 rests on Duke winning tonight.

Who else here stands to win big on Duke?

So do I man, so do I...

When it comes to Basketball, I'm a Tarheel, but since they didn't make it -- I realize that the best basketball comes from NC.

But, they might just make me a rich (ok, $250 isn't RICH) man.

I did 5 brackets this year and on two of them had Duke winning it all. I don't care at all about college backetball and know even less about it. Pretty much just picked teams at random, weighting the higher ranked ones over the lower. Seemed to have just as much chance of winning as anyone else because one of my co-workers who lives and breathes college sports did worse than I did!

I'm sure plenty of people picked Duke.

The real question is, who picked Butler? I mean..who even picked Butler to get to the championship game?

Not a single person in my pool picked duke. I had West Virginia winning it all and if duke hadn't whooped up on them the other night I would have won my pool. Just another reason to hate duke I guess.

I picked Duke FWIW. They are a solid team and coach K is some kind of genius. I'm not a fan of Duke University itself, but I respect their basketball program. Not a big fan of the Duke fans, either...the ones that go nuts on campus and set crap on fire. *sigh* for college students you'd think they'd have some common sense.
