But that star's name is Fletcher Magee. The alumni page has been celebrating him all season, and I can't help but hear his name in 1920s baseball announcer voice. Fletchah Mahgee is up to bat, and boy is he gonna knock’m outa their knickahs!

Yeah, that's gonna be a tough row to hoe for Wofford.

I'm not ruling KY out, but I'd bet on Houston over them and definitely would (and did) take UNC. And, hey, I ain't counting Wofford, out, either, especially if Washington is too injured to play.

Which he was, but they were just good enough at shutting down Magee's outside game that they got out. He was 0-12 in three point territory, where he was something like 8-12 against Seton Hall. Just 2-12 changes the game. 4-12 wins it outright.

I picked Wofford for my own reasons, obvs, but it came way closer to working out than I'd expected. Overall that was a fun game to watch, even if it didn't go my way at the buzzer.

Assuming Huston gets past OH St, that's a win I just gave away. My other missed game I didn't even have one team in.
If TX Tch gets past Buffalo I'll be perfect in the West! Don't know that I ever did that before.

I haven't watched a single game this season. Picked strictly off dynasties and sentiment.
And I'm still #1!
At least at the time of this post.

Wisconsin getting knocked out really messed me up. It being year of the badger, I almost picked them as the overall winner, but did have them in the championship. Oh well! I'll still hold out that Duke will pull it off.

COVID has thrown a real monkey wrench (or maybe a bat wrench) into picking teams. I'll bet we have more than one upset or withdrawal after a positive C-19 disqualifies some starters.

I posted a bracket. Completely random as I know nothing about college basketball. Should be good for a laugh.

Mine will be the same this year. Haven't watched a single game, doubt I'll watch the tournament.

I can't decide between filling out a bracket at work or watching that Mandingo scene from Django Unchained.

I can't recall my password and Yahoo is being fussy about it, so I'm going to give it a pass.

No surprise, I expect Gonzaga to win and I'm rooting for Virginia.
