Murray State opens up against Colorado at 12:15pm on CBS.
We are about an hour away from tip off! Let the fun begins!!!!!!
I don't want my 9 year old cousin to beat me again...
Edit: Wait a minute...Colorado plays UNLV...
He meant Colorado St.
Some folks around here have the tendency to drop the state from school names...
I call it the So-So 64, then the Thriving 32, and so on
In my 5 brackets I have one that is perfect and one that has 1 victory from the first four. How are others starting out?
But your brackets really do first four games? I have never considered such a possibility. The games Tuesday were captivating, but the ones last night were brutal.
My friends and I decided to include the play-in games just for fun. Then I went to the March Madness website and they included them too. To be honest, I didn't have a clue about these games and felt it just gave people a chance to get an early lead.
Score those games?
I had enough of a challenge having everyone get their brackets in by noon.
go murray state!
I am overly skeptical about Murray State. I kind of want them to lose so I can feel right about saying how they were ranked too high all year. I think this officially makes me a hater and I'm not too proud.
Oh, so it's called the 2nd round now?
The morning before March Madness begins and ESPN is talking about Dwight Howard. Get off my lawn, ESPN
That's because the tournament is on CBS not ESPN. That's why I'm watching The Price is Right.
Lady totally got the easiest last spin. only needed to beat .35!
Drew Carey is also slowly morphing into Bob Barker
Who the hell would pay $3500 for that ugly desk?? Worst prize ever. Gets a new Mac, though.
The Mac was $3400, the desk was $100 and the cheapest they could find from IKEA.
The price is right before the tournament...what's better?!
Girl just bid 5 dollars under somebody. This is after she thought she'd won the previous round, but didn't realize the guy next do her did. She's not having a great day
They weren't talking about Tebow. Take what you can get.
I hear Favre is thinking about a comback!!!
Good time of year for sports, March Madness, NFL free agency, and Spring Training with opening day in less than a month. This time of year is 2nd only to Football season starting and MLB playoffs.
Just caved in and made a bracket even though I said I wouldn't this year, but a lady in the dude offered me a bracket so I couldn't say no. C'mon UNC-Asheville!
A lady in the dude? I think they're doing it wrong....
I'm marrying into a family of Duke fans. All the men in the family pick Duke to win it all every year.
I grew up a Carolina fan (because I grew up in Chicago and Michael Jordan and all that). I can't wait to watch how this goes down.
FWIW, I've got Duke losing to Baylor.
I usually skip class today, but I have an exam at three. Such a bummer.
Same thing happened to be last year, I had to leave for an exam at halftime of the Michigan game. I left and the score was 33-29, I got back and it was 70-40.
I hate it because I have two enormous tests coming up in the next week and I can't just sit around watching all the games playing today.
But I love today too, because a club I'm in is doing a tour of the Big House, so I'm going to be taking a tour of the stadium as a study break, so I get to see the locker rooms and walk the field. I'm pretty damn excited for that.
Just so you all know, I'm being paid to host a tournament day at a local college. Yea..2 projectors and a flat screen. Deal with it.
Yeah, yeah. We know in reality you're buried under TPS reports.
I'm not even mad. I'm impressed.
I'm with you. I'm still calling it "First Round". Those early games are "Play-In" games as far as I am concerned.
But we don't have a prayer. We were all never going to call Div 1-AA "FCS", or call the Big Ten East and West Divisions "Leaders" and "Legends". But the great media marketing machines wore us down.
Hello Second Round.
I refuse to let this one get me. I haven't decided what I'm going to do about the new 10 team MLB playoffs yet...
I'm just going to pretend that the two WC teams finished with the same record and are having a 1 game playoff for the final spot.
This one's a little different. Names like "I-AA" and "FCS" are just arbitrary labels. "First round" is more descriptive. For 64 of the teams, this is their first round of NCAA tournament action. For only four teams is it the second round, and few even watch their "first round" games, anyway. I could possibly see the NCAA backtracking on this.
Those champagne glasses in The Young and the Restless commercial were LARGE.
OMG IT'S HAPPENING!
Tip off :)
lets go murray st.!!!
and the game I really need today is harvard. I have them in the round of 8.
Ack. come on Murray State :(
Bill Raftery brings nothing to the table. I hate him.
I love that they brought back the Boss Button for the NCAA's video player. That's pretty funny.
Wish they would kick it off withh 4 games all at once.
Did Vern Oundquist lose an eye!! Oh my god please never show him again.
Is not a holiday to me and will hardly be thought of with opening weekend occuring. THIS is truly my late Winter/early Spring holiday. Off work for the rest of the week/weekend; I am soooo...Content. God I Love this sh*t.
Apparently Murray St. doesn't know how to block out. They look totally lost on offense, too.
This is some sloppy shit right here.
Paul Hornung is still the most undeserving Heisman winner of all time
Especially when you consider that it was Jim Brown that was screwed out of that Heisman.
