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.  :)

    I had WI in the elite 8. Sigh. Thought I would do better today. I really needed Davidson yesterday. Goddamn clutch Marquette three pointers! Good thing we have #aacon13 next week to look forward to after I set my bracket on fire tonight :p

    Indiana is the way to go. This is their year!

    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.
