    Games start tomorrow so make sure those brackets are locked. McNeese State over Gonzaga is my upset prediction but I'm hoping there are a lot more than that this year. How many brackets are you filling out this year? I've got one with CBS Sports and one on ESPN.

    Hey! I am not allowed to check two boxes. I always fill out bracket and I prefer women's games. You think the women don't have a bracket?

    There's no way to edit a poll after starting the thread. I think a mod can, idk. Sounds like you would land in the "other" category I guess.

    Wasn't going to do a bracket, because it's mostly a social thing for me, and I don't really have a March Madness group this year, but I couldn't resist the pull.

    Gonzaga won’t lose to McNeese.

    I got Grand Canyon in the elite 8. Samford over Kansas. James Madison in the sweet 16. UConn, Arizona, Houston and Tennessee in the final 4

    I have Houston over UCONN.

    I only do 1 bracket every year.

    I’m in a 60 person, $20 buy in pool. So being basic won’t win ya shit. Gotta be bold

    I have only watched 4 Ducks and 4 University of San Francisco games this season. Filling out my 2 brackets was kinda comical. Just going off of history and that won't get me far I'm sure. I did fill them out with my heart and not my head.......
    Vermont and Long Beach State's PGs are from here in NE Portland. 5th year seniors. My son grew up playing with and going to school with both.....and my wife and I grew up with both sets of parents. So excited for these kids even though I have a feeling their run might be short.

    Picked the Duquesne upset. Hoping the Ducks can make me 2-for-2 on 11-6 games. Would love to see an Oregon-Creighton 2nd-round matchup.

    So I’m at work and can’t figure out how to listen to Ducks game.

    Did the NCAA fuck us over from listening to local teams?

    They started the pre game show before the game. Then at game time it went to national shows

    SC can't shoot. Blazers should not draft any Gamecocks

    Pro Dog Tip: If you wait to fill out your bracket until after the game is over you won't make any mistakes.

    Ducks beat six seed, 26 win South Carolina Gamecocks. Cousinard scores 40, most ever by a Duck in an NCAA game. They now play Creighton on Saturday.

    With Dante and their defense, Oregon only really needs one guy to get hot to win a game. Unfortunately they don't usually have that so it's kind of a crap shoot. :)
