NCAA open thread, round 1 day 2.

Hooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!  Who picked Harvard to win last night?  That would be me (and Michaelyn).  I had pretty good picks up until the last few games of the day…then I dropped from tied for first in the atheist pool down to tied for fifth.  Michaelyn is tied for second, and won’t let me hear the end of it.  That’s ok, I have more potential points left.  I’ll catch her in the Sweet 16.

Anyway, I’ve got Florida winning at all, so I need them to look strong today.  As for upsets, I have #10 Iowa St. beating #7 Notre Dame, #10 Cincinnati to beat #7 Creighton, and #11 Minnesota to beat #6 UCLA.  I hate UCLA with all that I am.

Michaelyn and I will be denned up watching the action.  Keep us company in the comments.  :)

    Iowa State is the family team, and by law we’re required to hate Notre Dame, so at least the Cyclones walloped those smug bastards.
