NCAA Bracket Watch: On to the Elite 8


So sad, so sad. My hate for Rick Pitino has taken Louisville to the Elite 8. I admit, I should’ve had them beating Oklahoma, but beating Tennessee in a no-contest? Not even my unbiased self would’ve seen that coming.

In other news, I still have 6 of my Elite 8 teams in tact (with Lousiville and Davidson the lone spoilers), so I’m still in pretty decent shape bracket-wise.

No one on Yahoo! has a perfect bracket. In fact, the best bracket has 6 incorrect picks. He got screwed in the South Region with Drake, UConn, Arizona, and Duke. Still, pretty damn good.

Your thoughts on my bracket?
