    BTW, while watching the UConn/Syracuse game, which is about my 442nd game this week, I recognized that I have never heard the word "screen" used so many times (this has been in all the games).

    ‎‎"Ministers of the Gospel, when dispensing the truths of God, must preach home to their own souls, as well as unto others. Sir's, we do not deliver truths or doctrines to you, wherein we ourselves have no manner of concern. No, our own souls are at the stake, and shall either perish or be saved eternally, as we receive or reject these precious truths which we deliver unto you. And truly, it can never be expected that we will apply the truths of God with any warmth or liveliness unto others, unless we first make a warm application thereof to our own souls. And if we do not feed upon these doctrines, and practise these duties, which we deliver to and inculcate upon you, though we preach unto others, we ourselves are but castaways." -- Ebenezer Erskine, "The Assurance of Faith", pg. 8

    Now that John Pelphrey has been let go, maybe the Hogs can have a spot next year.

    PS Bryan is a GA Tech fan so if you just pick the opposite of him you should be ok. Go Dawgs!

    The Southeast region is tough to pick. It is loaded with lesser teams, and of the bigger teams, none of them had great years. If Pitt is for real, then this is their best chance to go all the way.

    I am really stuck on a potential Kansas/Illinois matchup and a Syracuse/Marquette matchup. Very tough to pick.

    I hope the "America's team" (think Cowboys, Yankees, Notre Dame football) of college basketball, Duke, gets beat by Texas in the sweet 16.

    Picks aside, I am rooting for Syracuse.

    Look out now! Two games in and I'm undefeated [thank you Butler and West Virginia] and currently ranked #1 in ESPN's Tourney Challenge as well.

    I confess I don't know him well. He seems to be a nice guy, but since 95 the Hogs haven't done well, so I've missed most of Stan Heath and Pelphrey's games.

    Michael,

    If you are still undefeated after Moorehead State, you are quite the visionary.

    They just destroyed my bracket

    Everyone got hit by Morehead State Boliver.

    Fortunately, I had that game's winner falling to Vandy, so I'm not too upset right now.

    I do say that that game and the Butler game prove why this is called March Madness.

    Penn State is getting ready to turn Madness into insanity though. Tired it up with 13 seconds left.

    Indeed Michael.

    I was AFC (away from computer) for most of the day, and had upset alerts and final scores texted to my cell phone from NCAA

    I was so happy when St. John's lost. First upset pick of the day I got right. The Penn State pick only fell by TWO POINTS, and I guess Wisconsin was too much for Belmont to handle.

    I'm kind of surprised some of you have BYU advancing to the Sweet 16, and especially surprised a lot of you picked St. John's to do the same.

    BYU is...well...mud without their head forward (who got thrown off the team for honor code violations). I cannot see them getting by Gonzaga, and think a lot of people will be surprised if they do.

    St. John's IS a powerful team, but they are the most inconsistent top 10 basketball team I have ever seen in my life. They'd pull upsets on top 5 ranked teams like it was a regular day at the office, then drop two or three at a time to unranked teams or high-ranked teams they just tore apart (case in point: Notre Dame). It's absolutely amazing seeing their track record going the way it did and STILL making everything work in the end. If they made everything more consistent, they would be a sho-in for the Elite 8 without question.

    Not intended to bash anyone's picks. I just got around to seeing them, and had to comment on those two teams.

    Here are the standings going into today. BTW, that is one of the more impressive account names I've seen in a long time Bryan!

    You guys who pick Butler must be Clarkians. Gordon Clark taught Philosophy there. LOL. Go Butler. I grew up going to the games at Hinkle Field House with my Grandpa. Go Butler. There were some good games last night. I loved watching Gonzanga mutilate St. John. I am saddened for Michigan St. What a comeback.

    I played college ball at Richmond a couple of years. They should have been a 6 or 7 seed. I was shocked to see them with a 12. Gonzaga was a surprise. Today should prove to be exciting, though I hope my brackets hold up!

    I wish I had known this. The original report I heard only had him suspended for the conference tournament. I must have miss heard them when they meant THE tournament. This would have changed my pick to Florida making it to the Elite 8.

    Princeton must have thought they were playing UCLA again. Kentucky looked terrible.

    Indeed Michael. I don't even know how to fix that!

    I tried to last time, but ended up changing my bracket name (I have no idea how I did that).

    The surprise, in my opinion, was that Gonzaga thoroughly trounced St. John's, not the fact that they beat them.

    Take a look at St. John's schedule for this year. Notice anything unusual?

    Ok, since Syracuse is the only one left (and looking like they'll advance), I figured I'd go ahead and ask.

    Who survived?

    Would your brackets fit in one of the following categories:

    1) <----perfect/close to perfect (few misses; all sweet 16 pics still in the game)

    2) <---took a few hits, but I'm still in the game (some misses; lost some sweet 16 picks, all elite 8 picks in the game)

    3) <----I'm hurt! (lost some elite 8 pics)

    4) <----My party is over (lost some final 4 picks and/or your championship team)

    5) <-----I didn't even make it to the final buzzer. (.....you'll be watching the last rounds of the tournament without a care in the world)

    I would fall under #2.

    I do not think I am perfect, but I have only one Sweet 16 (Louisville) gone. All elite eight are still there though.

    Standings going into Saturday. I'm heartbroken to say that it was only my loyal love for the Dawgs that kept me out of a tie for first yesterday.
