Gooo Heels!!

Yeah baby!! And I'm not worried about the GT loss because Tech needed a win to 100% solidify their position in the tourney. Carolina was and still is a 1 seed.

Although the defensive intensity (or lack there of) worries me just a little.....

Don't really follow hoops too much until the brackets.

UK did what they had to in the end. Mark of a good team. But Brady and his squad have every right to be proud of what they accomplished this season. :)

OnBaseMachine: I had a hard time signing up with Yahoo too. (I assume you're talking about signing up with Yahoo as a whole, and not just the NCAA picks?) I had to register many, many times before it finally went through. Until it went through, I constantly got those error messages.

For what it's worth. :)

jmcclain19
03-14-2005, 02:08 PM
It's the first day after the announcement. I'm sure 20 million other Yahoo users are trying the same thing. Although they are the biggest website in the world even they are susceptable to server overload. Wait until tonight or tomorrow, then you'll probably have better luck.

I'm in for this - but I have a slightly off topic question.

Some of my friends want to be in a pool but a lot of them don't have the internet. Also, we'd like to be able to do two sheets each, so something like Yahoo isn't an option. Does anyone know of free software that allows you to enter in people's picks and then tracks the standings? I know there's a million different programs out there that you can purchase, but does anyone know of a free way to do this? Thanks.

TeamCasey
03-15-2005, 06:08 AM
I downloaded one from Sportsline a few years ago, but I don't see it now.

http://mayhem.sportsline.com/splash/mayhem/spln/opm

I only saw this, which might be similar to Yahoo. (I didn't investigate closely. Need coffee ;))

TeamCasey
03-15-2005, 06:08 AM
It does say up to 3 brackets per person.

TeamCasey
03-15-2005, 06:10 AM
I normally like to do 2 brackets as well. One with longshots and one that I really try to pick the winners.

Boss-Hog
03-15-2005, 07:37 PM
Thanks for the link, TC. Short of registering some fake email addresses and entering picks that way, the CBS link looks similar to Yahoo, which means no way to just have the commisioner enter everyone's picks. Anyone else have any other ideas? Thanks.

Wouldn't surprise me that UK will be last SEC team standing after this weekend.I would suprise me a great deal. Don't get me wrong, I am a lifelong UK fan, but they are gonna have real problems keeping Cincy off the boards tomorrow (and handling their fullcourt press). Florida may very well be the last one standing (providing they survive today, of course :help: )

UC hasn't pressed much this year. They did a little against Iowa just to keep them off balance. According to Huggins, they can't do it effectively enough, so they aren't going to do it at all.

TeamCasey
03-18-2005, 04:18 PM

Sorry, SB. I know you're a big fan and are probably sick of everyone bashing on your team, but there is no excuse for a program like that to lose an opening round game like they did. They were simply looking past Bucknell and it cost them.

Ugh, I totally agree... I just can't enjoy it, no matter how hard I try. :(

(However, I am still cheering for Roy Williams... Despite my bitterness at his departure, I always loved the guy and would be happy for him if he finally won it all. Mixed feelings, yes, but happiness would still be a big part of those feelings. After all, I still have his poster up on my wall!!)

I didn't see any of the game today but that WVU-LOU game reminded me of a regional final (or semi-final) Iowa played back in the mid-late 80s where they had a 20 point lead on either Oklahoma or UNLV and they blew it and lost the game.

Looks like Arizona is giving the Illini a bit of a run for their money.

I don't understand why teams run the clock down to 2 seconds and then take a horrible shot that has no chance of going in. Why not drive to the basket and try to score with just a few seconds left?
