Bumping before the "madness" kicks into high gear at various venues across the country.

I will be in one of those arenas this afternoon - hoping my alma mater can pull off a bracket busting upset.
I'm jealous, I've always wanted to go. I didn't realize Hartford was hosting this year or I would've looked into tickets. My alma mater (Univ. of New Hampshire) has never and likely never will get in...
maybe someday, but probably not in the near future...one of the worst teams this year across ncaa basketball...they were a good team to take the under on...most of their games were so low scoring
Oh I'm aware. They'd been better the last 5 years or so, but the senior class that left last year was most of the talent. When I was a student, they held the record for longest home losing streak, which I think was broken, but I'd guess we are one of the 10 worst programs in D1 history. Luckily the hockey and football teams have won all those national championships...oh wait that hasn't happened either.
going to say they arent one of the worst 10 programs in history when you figure in most of the HBCUs...then you also have programs like njit (which is on the rise), chicago state and centenery (when they were d1)...maine worst this year in the america east and probably worse historically than new hampshire

Because there is a certain kind of pride with being a complete loser, I did some research this weekend. Looking at all-time records, there are 8 schools out of 350 in the history of D1 that have winning percentage below 0.400. And they are, with # of seasons in D1:
1. Florida Atlantic, 29 seasons, 0.366
2. (tie) Prairie View, 57 seasons and VMI, 109 seasons, 0.370
4. Chicago St., 51 seasons, 0.383
5. New Hampshire, 103 seasons, 0.389
6. (tie) FIU, 36 seasons, and Georgia St, 54 seasons, 0.390
8. UMBC, 50 seasons, 0.391

While Maine might be worse than us this past year, they are no where near this list, 0.459 overall. UNH also still holds record for longest home losing streak at 32 games. We suck, like really suck. I'd say VMI, worst program ever. Going to go with UNH as 2nd worst.

I'm really surprised I got a singleton for Got to Give It Up after the lawsuit against Robin Thicke made headlines.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

Honolulu blue is one of the team colors for the Detroit Lions. Good for a singleton for me. Helped me go from 26th place to 8th.

Started to regret my Olazabal response last night as I thought about it more - think he's been used a few times as somewhat recent TD responses. Can't believe I still underestimate the sports knowledge of some of you folks.

Caught a break when I had Plain Dealer typed in but changed course and dropped before submitting. Turned out to be a good choice, I'd probably be out of the running otherwise. Looking forward to the rest of the reveal!

One of my favorite bands is named Wye Oak after the tree, and I had featured them in a TD I hosted a long time ago. I avoided it just in case some people remembered, but it would have saved me a point (not that I need it right now). I keep saying I’ll do another “songs from my iTunes library” TD sometime.

Jose Maria Olazabal is a name you remember, which is what makes it such sheep bait.

Plain Dealer was the only one I was sure of, and was also sure it was going to sheep. If I'd known it was going to sheep that heavily, I'd have switched my drop and sheep and saved myself 2 points.
