who's going to be watching? I'll be switching back and forth between this and the Laker game, no doubt. I'll have a bracket out and ready , haha.

There is not a better 15-20 minutes in all of sports.

Filling out my first bracket always gets me fired up.


As much as I like the Lakers, there will be no flipping back and forth. Once the brackets come out, then I will turn the channel back to ABC.

Yeah, I am excited to see what Ohio State does in the Big Ten finals and to see what seed they get. Should be interesting to see who the one seeds are this year too..

I'm pretty sure I'm picking Louisville to win it no matter what though :laugh2: I've been very impressed with them.

I'll definitely be watching. I'll probably pick UNC to win it all no matter how tough their bracket is.

I hate the matchup for the Siena... I would of rather had a 10 seed.

I'm afraid that they will beat OSU. OSU should have been higher after advancing to the conference tournament final.

I hope that AK doesn't draw the lone remaining 16 seed & have to play UNC.

Phewwww. Good to see Radford in that 16th spot. AK is probably the 15 seed.

Oh I hope they do, I just don't like the notion of playing a #1 seed.

I was pretty surprised that AK got such a high seed. I definitely expected them to be lower. We can play with Gonzaga, but the size differential will end up killing us. I wouldn't be surprised at all if the Zags end up outrebounding us by a double digit margin.

No I go to UAlbany their rival school, but I've lived in the capital region and been a fan since 2000.

Anyone know of a site that gives short summaries for each team in the tourney?
I only follow the Big East, A-10 and Duke UNC and Wake. I always have trouble predicting games with other schools besides those in them...

Do these analysts realize rarely do all number 1 seeds make the final four?

They have already been anounced. I believe they are made up right away then they fill in the teams.

I know the times are out already but what happens is the Bracket comes out and then CBS decides who plays when. Obviously they want to get the best ratings possible so they have control over who plays when.

Fill out a bracket on Yahoo theres little blurbs when you hover over the game.

I dont believe CBS has any control over that at all.
