I'll join up, but don't expect me to be any good. I'm miserable at remaining neutral in my pics! :laugh:

:cry: Unless Carolina wins the ACC tourney I will not be watching the NCAA tournament this year. My heart couldn't take not seeing my beloved Heels playing in it. Heck we might not even make the NIT this year....

IT seems as though VCU will not be in the NCAA Tournament this year, but thats ok, you can cheer for Old Dominion, the 2010 CAA Champs.

They may not make the NCAA tournament or the NIT but they are more than welcome to come to the "2010 Max Struhar Backyard Classic". The team they will be playing is my next door neighbors daughters team (she is 11). Now I know what you are thinking "Max, a bunch of 11 year old girls against UNC, thats not fair" but I assure you, UNC is better than a lot of people think and if they play well I think they have a chance. I'm gonna go call Roy Williams now and give him the invite.

As much as I should "see the big picture" and "hope a CAA team does well" for the conference's respect level as a whole, I can never bring myself to root for y'all or GMU. The year we beat Duke, I was almost as excited by ODU's embarrassing loss that year as I was by our win.

Petty? Yes. Loyal? Always.

I can understand that, its often hard to cheer for a school that is better than yours, not only in basketball but just all around better :) . I on the other had had CAA pride last year and cheered for VCU in the tournament.

Who else here is taking UTEP over Butler?

I am. On the same side, I'm picking Murray State over Vanderbilt, then going on to beat UTEP :wink:

In the past 3 or 4 years, a 4 seed has been upset by a 13 seed and Vanderbilt is the weakest 4 seed facing a pretty decent team.

Villanova is on a downswing too, but it's hard to go with a 15 over a 2.

Also, Purdue is reeling right now from the injury of Robbie Hummel. Look for Sienna to pull off a possible upset.

Yeah, I have Villanova losing to Richmond in the 2nd round and A&M taking out Purdue. I'd pick Purdue if it weren't for that injury.

I've got Notre Dame coming to face Richmond in the 3rd round. That should be one of the best games in the whole tournament.

Notre Dame will not make it past ODU

LOL, we'll see. ODU has played against 1 ranked team this year (awesome win too) while Dame is in arguably the best division in the NCAA this year with Pittsburgh, Villanova, Syracuse, West Virginia, Marquette, Louisville, and Georgetown - all of whom are in the tournament and all of whom they've played. Their record is only a reflection of a difficult schedule while ODU hasn't been tested.

Anything can happen though in March Madness, so we'll see :)

Congrats Max


got a good one between BYU and Florida, tied right now with a little over a minute left in OT

Nova(a 2 seed) is getting beat by 2 to Robert Morris with 2 minutes to go, Nova will win this, but RMU is making it interesting

.9 seconds left, Nova ball, they need to just throw one up after the inbound...Looking like OT in this one also, BYU starting to pull away from florida(up by 7)

Nova ran a backdoor screen to the hoop and had the guy wide open for the game winning dunk/layup and RMU player came up with a block to send it to OT...I'm rooting for the 15 over 2 upset here

You're kicking some major ass man! So far, you've only lost 1 sweet 16 team. Looks like you're gonna smoke us! No way for me to beat you, we picked the same finals and the victor :wink:

It's such a crapshoot every year that it really just boils down to luck. I try to use a few things to gauge who I am gonna pick, but it hardly ever ends up being because of those things that I am either right or wrong. :laugh:

LOL, I'm still happy although I picked Kansas. This might be the first Big 12 pick I've grabbed in years. Now I feel dumb and happy at the same time! :laugh:

Well, I may be stuck in the middle right now, I'm second in points possible. Assuming my Buckeyes don't crap out on me, I suspect I'll begin inching past y'all in the coming weeks.
