    WTF?!?!

    The bracket picks that I made, which made me nervous because I knew I was being a total homer... don't have the Buffs advancing farther than a good number of media talking heads. That scares the **** out of me.

    Am I now a bad fan for not picking the Buffs in the Final Four? How the hell did this happen?

    My expectations are now completely out of whack. I'm totally freaking out about Friday. Somehow, it's become a huge letdown if we don't advance past a team that's favored over us, won 22 while playing in the country's best conference, was ranked in the top 10 during the season, and has knocked out two of the number 1 seeds.

    It's hard to manage a far run into the tourney, when our first game, at best, is a coin toss.

    and when our chances in the second game are about as good as a roll of the die.

    I have us beating miami and falling to butler. Homer or no, I'll blow up a small portion of my bracket to put the buffs further. And where's c'ville, the one that's been saying prep for a first weekend miami exit all season?
    Now that that could be on us (remember, they ahve to beat the 15 first, and they've lost to a 15 in this bracket already this season).
    Would be nice if ski got his stroke back though. Keep your head down and keep working, it'll come.

    Agreed making the dance this year and winning 20+ games again makes the season a huge success for me.

    He's right here and still thinks Miami is more vulnerable than any of the 1-2 seeds. They're built like a giant killer, not a giant. Big difference.

    But first, everyone needs to stop talking about Miami and start cheering for Pacific.

    Not a bad 15-seed. They won at Xavier and beat Saint Mary's on a neutral court this year. Definitely capable of winning a game if things break right for them.
