As the guy in last place I'll offer a few comments. As you can see the seeders didn't do all that well or? there is more parity in the sport than ever before. From watching games this year it was evident that there were goiing to be some low seeds advance, a lot. I just picked the wrong ones. Kansas is a good team, well coached for those who still have them, but as the regular season proved, they can be beat by a team not considered top flight. For each team it's one & out.

But I'll ask this question, Brad Stevens has got to be a HOT commodity, where will he end up? I'd put it in a poll but there are a ton of options including staying where he is.

One guy on the national leaders board has VCU, Butler, UConn and Kentucky in his final four and he's got VCU winning the whole thing. He's in the lead! I can't wait to see Butler vs VCU with those two coaches. Both are clearly winners, duh. Gotta pull for VCU to win it all for all the crap they took from the sports media about not belonging in this tournament.

At least Obama's bracket is done so maybe he can get back to work...but he's got a bracket for the chicks, too so maybe he doesn't have to go back to work:)

Yes you are in second but the person in 1st filled out 10 brackets and could not pick out one that is going to win the tournament so I don't count him at all.

WoooooooooooooHooooooooooooo back in first place for now but I don't have anyone going into the final 4. No one has Butler or VCU to win so it will be either UCON or Kentucy going against Butler or VCU for the championship.

I'm at the Black Hills Kennel Club betting the dogs, circa 1955. It's tourist season so some are at the track & I'm listening to them. One says "I like the way that dog prances", the other says "well, that dog just took a dump, let's put them in a quinella". $2,237 for a $2 ticket, biggest of the season. BTW, women also :).

Calipari has to be frustrated that his team shot 33% from the free throw line against UConn. 4 for 12 and awful. That was the difference in this game. Make just two more free throws and advance to play Butler...and probably win. A great lesson for young basketball players...free throws win close games.

I can't believe I overlooked Butler! I love that coach and hope they do well Monday. I saw the line this morning at 4 with UConn the favorite and their women's team is pretty good, too!

Not the best game I've ever seen but congratulations to UConn. That makes three titles in the last 15 years. Calhoun's in rare company now.

Butler's shooting was worse than awful. They made 12 of 64 from the field and of those 12 they made, 9 were three's. So without the three point shots Butler made 3 two-point shots!!! In fact, they were 3 of 31 inside the arc...9.67%. I kept waiting for them to pull out of the shooting slump but they never did. I had nightmares last night listening to the basketball clanking off the rim time after time after time...more bricks than I have on my house:)
