Pitino Busts My NCAA Bracket Again

VIEW –> Sports of Boston NCAA Bracket Standings: Top 20 Ahh, the peaks and valleys of the NCAA Tournament. By Saturday, I lost my first Elite Eight team, and subsequently my first Final Four team in Memphis. I had the seven other Elite Eight teams so I was still in great shape to win some much-need money […]

March Madness Heats Up After First Weekend

Whether it was Cleveland State, Arizona, Western Kentucky, or Wisconsin, the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament had its fair share of first round surprises. Despite the number of upsets, the No. 1, 2, and 3 seeds in each bracket all advanced to this weekend’s Sweet 16, leaving most with chances to have a successful bracket when […]

USC Bounces BC Out of NCAA Tournament

Seven-Ten games in the NCAA Tournament are always intriguing and some would say are not upsets, like the 8-9 matchups.  The BC-USC game seemed to fit the mold as you had the seventh seeded Eagles with the flex offense and which-team-will-show-up dynamic taking on the Trojans with size and momentum, coming off a Pac-10 tournament […]

Kansas Wins Tourney, Busts My Bracket

VIEW KC’S FINAL NCAA BRACKET Kansas officially busted my bracket with a thrilling 75-68 win over Memphis in the NCAA Div. 1 Men’s Basketball Championship Game. I had Kansas bowing out to Georgetown…but little did I know that Davidson would make a trek all the way to the Elite 8, zooming past Georgetown before losing […]

NCAA Bracket Watch: To the Final Four

VIEW KC’s UPDATED BRACKET Rick Pitino knew his role as his Louisville squad bowed down to my eventual national champion, the North Carolina Tarheels. Louisville made it close, only losing by 10 to a team that had been blowing everyone out previously. All I can say is thank God that Lousiville didn’t totally bust my […]

NCAA Bracket Watch: On to the Elite 8

VIEW KC’S UPDATED BRACKET 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 […]

NCAA Bracket Watch: On to the Sweet 16

VIEW KC’s UPDATED BRACKET Courtesy of Yahoo! Sports My bracket is still in decent shape, but took a big hit after Georgetown’s ridiculous loss to the 10-seed, Davidson. I had Davidson beating in Gonzaga in the first round (and they barely did it), but I never thought in my wildest dreams they’d beat G-Town too. […]

Bracket Watch: Round 1

VIEW KC’s UPDATED BRACKET The second part of round 1 was not as kind, as I only went 11-5 in the 16 games on Friday. The pursuit of perfection for me ended, fittingly, at 18-0. My first wrong pick occurred when Drake lost on a last-second shot. That particular game killed me, as Western Kentucky […]
