I hope I am not the only person who had a difficult time deciding a winner

Quick question: Can we just make this the general March Madness area instead of just the pick'em?

Even though First Four isn't important for the pick'em, Mount St Mary's has held off New Orleans 67-66 to advance to face Villanova in the Round of 64.

That does not mean good things for my family bracket, however. I was the only person in my family that picked New Orleans (First Four counts in my family competition). Sad

Unfortunately, Notre Dame and Virginia have won, so I'm currently deep in a whole already. Sad Sad Sad

Day 1 is in the books!

Though some of us (i.e. me) have taken a couple of bumps, we still have three clean brackets! Will they survive? Day 2 awaits!

With Round 2 in the can and the Sweet Sixteen on deck, let's take a look at the standings!

DK continues to show the way thanks to a 12-4 second round. Losing Villanova was a hit as that was one of his Final Four, but when you're in the 99th percentile of brackets, you can afford to lose one.

The tournament resumes Thursday!

I want to see the Zags pull it off because they are the smallest school by far. South Carolina would also be nice because they are the lowest seed.

Not the Men's tournament, but Mississippi State just broke Connecticut's 111 game winning streak in women's college basketball in the Women's Final Four after a buzzer beater in overtime. The final score was 66-64

and South Carolina beats Stanford 62-53. Which makes my life a lot easier.

North Carolina was pretty clutch at the end with those offensive rebounds on missed free throws. If UNC didn't get those rebounds, Oregon could've definitely won.

I hate it when people blame referees and I don't like to do it either, but this was the worst officiating in any sports event I have seen or read about. Approximately 50 fouls were called during the span of this entire game. The amount of fouls in last year's title game was 26. This whole tournament was ruined by slow pace and the sheer amount of mistakes and fouls called on every team. I don't think either Gonzaga nor North Carolina deserved this national championship due to how both teams ended getting evenly screwed. This makes my love/hate relationship for sports even larger than it was before. I also need to stop underestimating how fun baseball is to watch. I didn't really care for opening day, but I should've payed more attention to opening day and not the failure that was the national championship. It also seems like a coincidence that last year in college basketball, both final four games were blowouts while the national championship last year was one of the best ever. This year the final fours were close and riveting, while the championship was a complete joke. Same thing with college football as well. In 2014, the playoff semi finals were exciting to watch while the championship was a blowout. In the past two college football seasons, the semi finals were boring blowouts while the championships were very exciting (2017 Clemson VS Alabama was better than the 2006 Rose Bowl in my opinion).

Also, one last little fact. The Carolinas have won all four major NCAA sports championships for 2016 and 2016-17 seasons. Clemson won the college football championship, North Carolina won the men's basketball tournament, South Carolina won the women's basketball tournament, and Coastal Carolina won the college baseball championship.
