If there were any left after Arkansas-Little Rock yesterday, MTSU probably killed them off. I just have to hope Kansas comes through for me, else my title game picks are a complete bust.

Bamaboy goes to UTC, so thanks for the support, didn't work out for them.

Depends on which bracket site you're on, but according to the CBS announcers, their bracket challenge has no perfect sheets remaining.

How dreadful!

Michigan State is my alma mater, and I had them going all the way. I could hardly watch after the 15-2 run at the beginning of the game. It just seemed like they'd get on a run and get within 4 or 5 points, and then the other team would shut them down.

So now Michigan is playing. We'll see how bad this goes.

While not accounting for every bracket site out there, the ones at CBS, ESPN, and Yahoo are all busted.

No messing around, Xavier. I've had quite enough for today.

I heard on sports talk radio this evening that 97.8 percent of brackets had MSU beating MTSU. That's an awful lot of busted brackets.

And we're talking really busted, as 22.3% of ESPN entries had Michigan State winning it all.

Same. On the bright side I don't need to worry about working my schedule around basketball games anymore!

That Northern Iowa half court shot was so great. 3/4 of that arena was going bonkers.

I had hoped I would see something memorable for my first live NCAA Tournament experience. I think that qualifies.

OK UConn, you've made it respectable. You can go ahead and lose now.

Mercer over Duke in 2014 probably still has that beat

The sound you heard about midnight ET last night was that of wailing and the rending of garments by operators of sports bars in the state of Michigan.

:lol: I can bet that's true. I usually really look forward to March Madness each year, but that loss just took the wind out of my sails.

My upset pick was Gonzaga, and they came through.

Just to show how crazy Thursday was, only one of Saturday's eight games featured a top 8 seed vs. a top 8 seed. (4 UK vs. 5 Ind.) There were a pair of 1 vs. 9 match-ups, though.

I'm having a dream bracket performance. After hitting 27/32 in the first round, I went 7/8 today, with my only "miss" coming due to my prior incorrect prediction that Iona would eliminate Iowa St. I'm currently ranked #7,306 on ESPN.

The top bracket on ESPN right now has Michigan State winning it all. What a world
