Sweet 16?
« on: March 20, 2017, 12:30:11 PM »
Thursday and Friday games were not very exciting or compelling... Saturday and Sunday were outstanding!  Villanova out??  Duke Out?  Not really surprised by Florida State getting beat but not they way they did...

Hows you bracket and who is going on??
In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

This weekend was great. Couldn't believe that Wichita State / Kentucky game. Noticed, this morning, that Florida's tipoff on Friday isn't till 10pm. Really??

I'd imagine so. 9 teams down to 1 after the opening rounds. Overrated

ESPN is reporting that out of some 16 million brackets submitted, only 18 are left today!

The largest filter was Duke losing to South Carolina. After that Xavier.

Hopefully you filled out ESPNs bracket... you would be one of the 18 left... Good luck!

Not exactly. The 18 people are those that picked all 16 of the sweet 16 teams.

Unless FlaBoy somehow got the other 12 teams as well...which would be a SERIOUS accomplishment

I'm at the 57% level on ESPN's bracket challenge. I have 11 of my Sweet 16 still alive and 3 of my Final Four (Florida, Gonzaga, and Kentucky). Iowa State was my miss [so far] on the Final Four (they came close; I had also picked Vermont to upset Purdue in the first round & lose to ISU).

SC looks like the Cinderella team of the tourney so far.

I am so proud of my Gators for making it to the Sweet 16, especially when a lot of people said we were overrated and would loose in the first round.

RIP to FSU and Miami yall had a good run  ;D ;D ;D ;D
The race is not always to the swift,
Nor the battle to the strong,
Nor satisfaction to the wise,
Nor riches to the smart,
Nor grace to the learned.
Sooner or later bad luck hits us all.

We are playing like a 1-seed. Maybe they'll figure that out when we beat Wisconsin.
