2006 A.net Ncaa Tourney Pool -who's In?

Fri Mar 10, 2006 2:55 am

Sign up for the official (just for fun!) a.net NCAA tourney pool on Yahoo if you have a Yahoo! account...it seems like no one cares about college hoops here, but lets see how many we can get...

Haha, we make fun of Sasha all the time here, with him referring to himself in the 3rd person. "Sasha make basket", "Sasha make free throw", "Can Sasha just dunk ball from free throw line?"...even Matt Kleinmann, one of my friends and KU bench warmer, told me he has a picture online he took with the quote" Sasha charge iPod"...good times.

That was 5 minutes ago. It was replaced by, "Jesus Christ, how can BC be tied with Pacific with 3 seconds left?!? I hope BC can make it to overtime!" Thank goodness they did, my bracket isn't completely ruined yet  Silly

Damn, Pacific is just knocking down 3's like crazy in OT...I had BC goin to the Elite 8...would suck to lose an Elite 8 team within the first 3 games played!!

And Im glad UWM beat Oklahoma...it was pretty easy to call that one, OU is the most overrated team in the tourney this year IMO...

I have them losing to my Gators in the Great Eight so thank God they made it through. I don't need a bracket buster on the first day.

Tennessee is only up by 2 points to Winthrop with 40 seconds left in the first half. As much as it would suck for them to go out as I have them going to the Sweet 16 I would love to see it happen. I hate the Vols!

The 'Cuse loss was tough...I was thinking TAMU would probably win (they are way better than a 12 seed, as much as I...dislike...them, the tournament shouldve put them in single digits seeding wise), but I let my personal feelings (TAMU sucks, they must go ASAP!) get in the way of my bracket picking this year as always, so I went with the 'Cuse...sad to see McNamara go out on such a lackluster performance though...

My downfall is that I'm usually set on a 14 seed upsetting a 3 seed or something along those lines when in reality, that 14 seed stands no chance. I know this, everyone knows this, but for some reason, I refuse to listen to any logic. Case in point this year: Northwestern St. vs. Iowa.

I only had them going to the Sweet 16 and I figured their high from winning the Big East would subside by then. Looks like it wore off a lot sooner than I expected. Now they don't look like such a good pick at the 5 seed. Of course those damn 12 seeds always play good. I had the Montana upset but Utah State let me down.

Florida looked good. Hopefully we can continue our streak to the final. Gators all the way! But if not this year look out next year.

Have a nasty feeling Davidson will take down Ohio State, by watching what I've seen so far. Think Ohio St. and Tennessee were both a bit overated 2 seeds. Bucknell and Arkansas will be a close one and it seems that the Iowa-NW State game will be too after a slow start. Arizona appears to be rolling.

I think right now is the closest Bucky has gotten to UA since the game begun. And that's about 15 points. Hopefully, UW downs N. Dakota later today in hockey and eases the pain a bit for Badger fans.

I'm sweating out the Bucknell game myself, with a good amount of family and friends as alumnus.

LSU got lucky on that last shot. A&M out played them most of the game. All the Aggies need is bit more offense and they'd still be alive. Their defense does very well in holding down the opposing team's scoring.
