Anyone following the NCAA Basketball???

So we have this game at work where everyone pays $10 and we had one of our developers make up this online game where you have to select your NCAA basketball teams (who will win each game et cetera) and then whomever comes out with the most points in the end wins the pot. Now the trick is none of us have a farking clue when it comes to basketball, so it's completely random. I chose Illinois to come out as the winner, was this a good choice???

Anyone else following the NCAA games / making bets or anything?

we have our office pool aswell, we set it up through yahoo's brackets online, so it does all the point counting for us. $10 buy in, winner takes the pot, then 2nd place gets their money back is how we are playing it.

Choosing Illinois is a good choice, but anything can happen, there are alot of good teams, expect upsets, its how it always goes.

I follow the NCAA but I have never made any bets about them, I know, I am really boring ha ha

Illinois is agood team to place a bet on but remember during tournments anything can happen

I am rooting for the Atlantic 10 ACC champs, Duke for the NCAA--they didn't play well as well as they could have during the regular season, but i think they are stronger during the tournment, so hopefully they will win the NCAA this year

I took Illinois too. They are the best team in the country
so if they get beat it will be an upset. Many others have
Kentucky or North Carolina. Once you get past the first round
it's really a toss up.
It's fun though. We really get into it here.
And of course Cincinnati is in the tourney so it's big.

Yes...BIG Michigan State fan here. However, I don't take the time to fill out brackets or do any betting. Too much to think about!

Seems Digger and myself may be at war on Sunday. He's a Syracuse fan and if MSU and Syracuse both win there first game, they'll meet up on Sunday. Let the smack talk begin!

ps. I hate Duke

HUGE DUKE FAN here but I just don't know
if they have the depth to win it all this year.
If Reddick has a bad game...it's over.

We'll see.

the #1 seeds usually don't win, seems like its a 3 or 4 seed that rolls through. ALWAYS watch out for the underdog, the will make you lose all your money in a heartbeat. Bastards with their heart and good luck and school sprit......

Anyway, I'm pulling for Louisville, they have a pretty strong team and Pitino always does well in the tourney, but who knows (besides Dickey V lol)
