It's a tough bracket to me this year...really can't rely on any of the #1 seeds to make it to the final 4 since they've all proven fallible at inopportune times this year.

I've got Duke vs. UCLA and UConn vs. Villanova. with UConn beating Duke in the final. I wanted to take BC to lose to UConn, but couldn't let myself take out 2 1 seeds before the elite 8. Happy NCAA watching and HB drinking!

Well, I'm a homer through and through. So here's mine Texas, Marquette, UNC, and Wisconsin. Only two teams from Wisconsin because the idiots that select the seeds put Wisconsin and Wisconsin-Milwaukee in the same bracket. Oh well, go cheeseheads!!

No jabs, but I am surprised people are picking UNC. They had an overachieving regular season (particularly second half), but I don't see them getting out of the region. They weren't able to maintain focus during the ACC tournament which was relatively weak this year.

I got Duke/UCLA and Uconn/Villanova with Uconn beating UCLA.

I don't believe in UCLA, don't know enough about Villanova other than record and just have been too busy to keep up with college b-ball this year. The lower brackets got me stumped...

Being an AZ Wildcat, UW Badger & Marquette fan, none of my teams have been good enough to keep my interest high. Then they peg UW and AZ against each other in the 1st round so my homer picks are hard this year.

I'm currently 4 for 4 on my bracket, Winthrop sure gave TN a scare a few moments ago!!!!

Now, GO Marquette!

BC squeaked by by the skin of their teeth, too! TV would be best, but having a Sirius boombox isn't too shabby.
