My bracket is doing pretty well at the moment. After 2 rounds, my percent correct is 82.2%.

Big East is the beast. Six teams in sweet sixteen! PITT has been lucky to win the last two games. Hopefully, against Xavier, we will come out and play real PITT ball.

My Bracket is doing well, 1 major Gaffe or else I would probably be winning in bracket pool

12 out of 16 still in play in my bracket ... Still a major fall of after being 16 for 16 after Day 1

Great!!
I was so dissappointed with SEC that didn't fill out any brackets this year. Although I looked at the matchups. I think Obama's selection is good. I'd go with that one.

Huskies are in trouble. Major violation coming up. Big east schools will soon come under scrutiny. Bad times ahead for Calhoun.

Why would a UCONN violation bring scrutiny to all other schools in Big East? I am no fan of UCONN, but, this looks a like a minor blip. Nothing will happen. New England Patriots cheating doesn't mean all teams in AFC EAST are under scrutiny!

NCAA works a little differently. A football analogy:

SEC is the best league. A violation on a successful program like Alabama (storied program) can trigger an in depth scrutiny on Auburn, Arkansas, South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Miss State, Ole Miss (which has happened). Since these schools were trying to keep up with Bama with major-minor infractions.

Big east is by far now the best league along with ACC in Basketball. Paying off recruites, recruites relatives is nothing new. If Larry Brown can give Danny Manning's dad a job at school (Kansas) before recruiting him cross country then all other coaches are faltu cheaters. Bobby Knight is no longer coaching. One school falls others soon will be investigated. This thing starts like wild fire with tips "they are doing it too". NCAA will look in to all Big east schools and there is no doubt about it. Hopefully for your sake Pitt escapes.

Maybe you are right. But, I think its a specific case with U Conn..

You know, Dejuan Blair drives a HUMMER? I know for a fact one LAW FIRM ( they are also sports agency )in Pittsburgh gave him all kinds of small gifts last year ( iphone, laptop, shoes etc etc ), which he took ( everybody does ) and verbally told them once he goes pro, they will represent him. Guess what happened in February? One big shot firm from West Coast gave him a HUMMER, which he now drives, and he also kept all the gifts form the local Law Firm. I know those guys professionaly. They were just shaking their heads.

Ei gula ar ki bolbo. Give them a nice ride with rims and they are sold. I only wonder how cheat carroll escaped after Bush's eventful past being investigated.

These agents and so called friends are corrupting these boys mind. Stern needs to put a lid and comply with NFL rules minimum entry it to the draft is senior or graduate. Same with foreign players. NCAA has a tendency to look away from certain schools which I don't know why. I think they always look at the bottom line on who is generating how much money.

Formality was done. Swift and as painless as it can be done.

Magic left the building with 3:17 left to play.

With MJ going in to Hall, Carolina blues are flying high. Hansboro and others showed why not to join NBA as under classmen. Duncan (demon deacans) is a great inspiration for many.
