I love this time of year! Who does everyone have in their Final Four? I avoided disaster a bit ago...

Villanova (National Champs)
Kansas (Runner-up)
Duke
Syracuse

I got killed by Notre Dame. I had them in the Elite 8. I did pick Murray St. though. :D

I had Notre Dame winning the South region. :oops:

I'm gonna watch Northern Iowa now. I love watching those well coached teams like UNI and Butler.

I have Kansas, Syracuse, WVU, and Duke.

If the Big East takes a dump all over again tomorrow I will probably be in trouble. I had Georgetown in my Elite 8 so that screwed my bracket pretty hard. I also have Villanova in the Elite 8 but was in a way disappointed they won.

I picked Northern Iowa and Old Dominion to win as well.

This is the best weekend of hoops all year IMHO. The games have been great so far. I have a question for others watching. I am having trouble with the HD from some of the feeds. I know it is not on my end because when they cut to commercial the HD is fine. Anyone else experiencing this?

Yes, I've noticed the same. At home on the glorious HD TV, no problem. I can't recall the game yesterday but I was getting a little testy with the CBS feed not being in HD (on the computer).

And for that, I hate you.

Rock chalk baby! Couldn't happen to a more deserving fan base.

As for Steve Alfraud . . . once again he shows his true stripes in the tourny.

I absolutely hate fans of one-sport schools. KU basketball, Duke basketball, Nebraska football, etc. Glad to see Rock Chalk pull a Rock Choke.

It was sad to see Pitt go down today, however, they really did have a good season all things considered.

I don't care what Jamie Dixon says; he didn't expect the team to go deep this year and neither did anybody else. He keeps his expectation levels high and I am sure he adjusted them throughout the season but you could see at quite a few times this year that this team would be outted eventually. When they were off they were really off and just didn't have the horses they did last year.

Still, with another year of experience I expect really big things from some of the guys next year. I can't wait to see the improvement Gibbs makes. Woodall and Taylor are sure to improve as well.
