Yeah, but we're 3-1 against tourney teams this season!
Ignore the fact that the 3 wins are against play-in teams (USF & back-to-back wins against Western Kentucky in November)



Yeah, it's not an easy pick to make, I'm sure, & y'all don't have the 8yrs invested with the team that I do. Be aware, though, that in last year's Bracket Buster game, we beat Wichita State at their place, 68-67.

Well good luck, WSU is a far more improved team than the one VCU faced last season.

Yeah, sorry Ben, but I picked WSU in my bracket. They just seem like a stronger team on both ends going into the dance. I do like Shaka Smart though!

Congrats bro! VCU did it again!

I would probably be more upset because you are busting up my bracket, but as a fan I'm really happy for you. Would be awesome to see VCU shock the world again.

Plus, I'm already outta the 5 million bucks on Yahoo as soon as LBC lost!

Man, I'm so fired up right now! First thing in the morning, I'm telling my boss I need Wednesday thru Friday off next week: Atlanta's only an 8hr drive & I'm road-tripping my ass down there if we beat Indiana Saturday!

I'm an idiot: I always, always pick Gonzaga first round, but this year I was stupid & picked against 'em. Idiot.
