  • The "Official" 2006 March Madness NCAA Tournament Thread

    I don't know what gives me the right to call this an official anything....but here were on on the day that one of the great sports events in America begins, and no one else had started one, at least specific to the tournament.

    So here goes...brackets filled out? Ready to go?

    Who are you rooting for...

    Here's a space for comment as the games go on...and if you want to comment on the women's tournament that's fine with me, too!!!

    Who do you like? Duke? UCLA? UConn? Memphis? Tennessee?

    I say...Go Bruins...and here's to another great tournament!!!
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    My stab at the final four:

    Uconn
    Duke
    Gonzaga
    Boston College

    Uconn takes it all.

    Now that I've jinxed all four of those teams, it's anybody's guess.

      Let the Madness Commence! NCAA Basketball Tourney Thread

      Have you done your bracket? Who are you pulling for? Who is your stand-by team? Who always disappoints you? Who is your bracket buster?

      Normally I have my bracket done sooner than this, but I just plain forgot. I did glance at Sport's Illustrated briefly before dinner last night to see who was in the Tourney this year.

      Let's keep a tally on our brackets in here, for those MCers who are doing brackets. I have been doing brackets every year since Nathan and I have been together. We will be watching the games together tomorrow. He has the day off and I am working from home tomorrow.

      I love me some march Madness! Go UConn!
      Edited to add: Here is a link to the CBS live scoreboard for the Tourney.

          Of the three games on right now, two of the teams I picked are losing big time!

          Seton Hall is down by 15 with 5 minutes to go in the game.
          Oklahoma is down by 11 with just under 7 minutes to go in the game.
          Boston College is up on Pacific by 8 with 7 minutes to go in the game.

          I am so glad I changed my pick to having OSU beating Oklahoma.

            I really hope this doesn't amount to anything:

              Already...round one...Pacific takes BC to double overtime...and Winthrop (15 seed) takes 2 Tennessee to the final seconds...

              AAAH, the Tournament...

              By the way, that's go UCLA Bruins...Isn't Belmont also the Bruins? Great times this weekend in San Diego...NCAA plus the World Baseball finals...

              PS...I'd be more than willing to merge this thread with the March Madness thread started by Mamabot...

                The arena was given the all clear. Phew! Poor players are already under engouh pressure as it is, they don't need suspicious packages throwing off their game too.

                I only have two wiins so far on the day out of a total of 5 games. One loss knocked out a pick in the next round. Hate when that happens.

                  I started a thread earlier today too. Seems we are the only ones with brackets.

                  I am with you on UConn. They are one of my favorite basketball schools.

                  Not with you on the Uckla thing. I think I ended up taking them to the Final Four, but begrudgingly so. Die hard USC fan here. :sc:

                    FYI - I merged the two NCAA threads. Oh and by the way, go Ohio State!

                      Sorry I missed your thread Barry. I looked around and didn't find one so I started my own.

                        Thanks Mamabot and Nemo...what a great start to the dance, though. BTW...I entered twice in Lightyear's pool...in one I have UConn winning it all, the other UCLA (my favorite team, had to pick them in at least one).

                          Fantastic games so far. I've only lost two games in my bracket so far so I am doing pretty good.

                            I am sucking hard core! 3 of 10 as of now. Oklahoma was a two round loss for me. Really glad I called Bama upsetting Marquette!

                              Wintrop gave me a heart attack. Enough to make me swear off brackets forever. You REALLY just never know!
