    Too late for me, I guess.

    I don't kep track of college hoops, so I tend to bracket like a girl.

    Never too late....I haven't watched a single college hoops game all year, but will still fill out a bracket (which has no shot at winning).

    The people who win my office pools are girls, because they pick like a girl.

    Girls oftentimes win these pools. Almost any team can beat any other in these games. There is just so much excitement for the guys in them.

    I joined as well and watched quite a bit of college basketball this season, but don't think that will mean I'll make great picks.

    OK, my picks are in. I did the girl-type thing - based solely on non-researched guesses. Good Luck to all!

    I think I'll have a go at lunchtime if I'm not too late.

    Mine will be the ultimate uninformed guesses, as I know diddly squat about basketball.

    Just a reminder to anyone wanting to play, you need to have picks done by 12 noon today, when the games start....so you've got about 70 minutes to go!

    I researched ESPN and made a couple of changes because I don't watch b-ball but I am in. They were primarily guesses.

    Good call on using Yahoo for the tourney. I have been trying to print my ESPN bracket all day and cannot get on.

    One loss so far on the Cyburbia bracket... darn Wisc.-Millwaukee
