    I really don't think Charles has any idea what he's talking about as far as college basketball is concerned. They just have him up there for ratings.

    I always considered him there for entertainment. Which he does very well. I think the only thing he knows about college basketball is what is fed to him through some CBS assistant.

    The Pac-12 may have been underestimated by everyone. All three teams yesterday had impressive wins.

    Looks like the Big 10 was over rated. I relied on the bracket makers for most of my picks as I dont follow college ball. Big mistake. :o

    This is a tough year for picking winners. The way I looked at the field, the top 3 seeds are probably a step above, with the rest pick 'em. Now, I think every game was a pick 'em. The field is so balanced that it is all about who plays better that day. The talent of most teams is not that big a disparity from top to bottom this year.

    Well my bracket is a mess, though none of my top teams have been eliminated yet.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I certainly did not see Wisconsin going down. The only people in our pool who would have picked Harvard are the ones who use team colors and such.

    i saw Barkley at the Garden a few times. Always came out about half an hour , 45 minutes before the game and walked around the court talking to fans, to kids and posing for pictures with them. Then he went out and played hard. He could be on my team.

    What?
    "On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."

    Nice story. What's that have to do with the quality of his analysis that he's now getting paid for? But then as someone pointed out, he's not getting paid to be smart. If he's ok with the funny buffoon gig, then I guess I am too.

    I picked Ole Miss. Wisconsin was barely average this year, Ryan was quite the illusionist during the conference season this year. The curtain was pulled back today.

    New Mexico and UNLV were both elite 8 for me. They fooled a lot of people apparently.

    Did you pick Wisconsin to lose?
