    I remember we did this last year and it was cool. It's just for fun and bragging rights. I started a group on ESPN.com for us so if anyone wants to join, feel free.

    Go to ESPN.com and search the bracket groups for:

    Ah, yes, Tourney Time. I was at work during selection Sunday, and plum forgot about it. Guess I have a little research today, so I can pick those all-important 8/9 games correctly.

    A 12-5 upset occurs every year. I can totally see another George Mason happening. South Alabama, perhaps?

    Your probably right. Hansbrough is a beast.

    You won last year didn't you?

    I'll probably do one tomorrow morning.

    I'm a little down this year because my coworkers would appear to care less about doing brackets at the office. We have over 100 employees here, and not ONE frickin' person is interested in doing the pool I started. These people utterly amaze me at times and have zero ounce of humor or fun in their veins.

    We had our first 12/5 upset. Western Kentucky knocked off Drake.

    Toldja.

    I'm totally done listening to punditary with this tournament. It's utterly ridiculous what they say at times, particularly because when they're wrong they never have to explain themselves.

    How many of these morons predicted USC and Drake to be a darkhorse? Nobody ever really knows. It doesn't matter if you're hot down the stretch. If you play good defense and make key shots, anybody can win.

    Freakin' Drake. I shoulda thought they were seeded too highly.

    I have observed this phenomenon before.

    Maybe the pundits should get their wives to predict games instead.
