So the brackets for March Madness come out this Sunday night and the tourney starts on Thursday. I'm sure many of us do brackets every year, so if you want in with our TSG group, I can try to organize and send out invites and such. Let me know if you want in, and put in your email or PM to me so I can send you an invite.

Edit: If anyone has started this already, stop me and link me to the other topic.

You know I'm definitely in! I haven't kept up with college basketball as much as I usually do this year, but I'll still try to make some pretty good picks. :)

Well I sure am interested and was actually thinking about making a topic last weekend while I was watching some college basketball.

I think you and I have been on the NBA this season together, especially with our fantasy basketball here.

*bump* Brackets are now available, and we only have 3 people involved, hoping that more people are interested in this.

Yeah, me too. The great thing about March Madness is even if you know absolutely nothing about basketball, you can guess who'll win games and possibly do better than the experts. :lol:

Yeah, it was a kid who didn't even have cable or internet or something like that. He just looked at the stats and whatnot in the newspaper and guessed every single team right.

Just filled out my bracket and am all set for thursday. One good thing about march madness is that there is pretty much always a game on tv if you are bored(much like the olympics)

I totally agree guys! So if there are any clueless basketball or even sports fans out there whose friends/relatives/significant others are pestering you to get in on this in some fashion, let me know, it's just a lot of fun. And Ice, I got your invite now sent :).

I'm in little friendly competition of my own with my friends at school. Disappointed because I picked Florida and Notre Dame, but they lost. At least Villanova won!

I'm done with this. [EDIT] this my bracket is screwed. UK is going to win, but other than that... Well, actually I had 24/32 and 9/16 so it's not THAT bad. Kansas screwed me over the biggest though. -_-

My bracket's looking pretty terrible so far (this may be the worst I've ever done :lol:). Three of my Final Four teams are still alive though, so I have a decent chance to get some points down the road (go Duke! _awesome_ ).

I only have 2 final four teams left (UK and Baylor). I know I'm not winning.

Well, I didn't get a chance to talk about this earlier in the week, but this year's championship game was excellent. _awesome_ I've been a Duke fan for years, so it was especially nice to see my team (that most experts thought would lose in the second round :P) go all the way. I've seen them suffer some tough losses in the past few seasons, so it was cool to see Scheyer, Zoubek, and the other seniors go out on top.

Just as further proof of my Duke fanboyism, out of the five brackets I did in different places, I picked Duke in four of them. :lol: I even finished #572 in one of the ESPN brackets I filled out (out of ~20,000 people). :D

Overall, I'd say this was a very entertaining tournament with all of the upsets and close games.
