    Default NCAA March Madness!!!

    Soo I've been waiting for one of these to pop up and there doesn't really seem to be. There's a bit of talk in the Rookie Forum, but thats not really a good place. Soo THIS is now the place to talk March Madness. Early Picks? Pools?

    Can we do a MM Pool here at RR?
    Any other thoughts?

    Get em up! It's almost here!!!

    has the bracket been released yet?

    and who's broadcasting it this year? hopefully SUN TV again.. for a non-cableTV-haver, being able to watch the entire tournament in hi-def for free last year was all kinds of awesome

    i know nothing about NCAA ball though until the tournament starts.. then i get a tad bit obsessive about it

    i have a hard time keeping up with the ncaa... too many teams, player turnover is too rapid.... but i have a very scientific approach to making my bracket picks.

    1. the whitest or blackest team that isnt duke
    2. funniest named players
    3. which school is most likely run by a wacky bizarre religion

    BYU is sounding like my favourite right now.... Baylor had my pick last year

    UNC eh? Interesting. Not many are going to pick them for the win this year. If you put money on that, you could get some GREAT odds on that Final. I expect to see Barnes play up to the expectations laid on him all year. This is where he shows alot of people who's boss.

    Get your Official NCAA Brackets here!
    http://i.turner.ncaa.com/dr/ncaa/nca...ensBracket.pdf

    These ones are blank, but I know I like to fill mine out myself. Have at 'er!

    Here are the "Official" Ranking as per the NCAA website.
    http://www.ncaa.com/rankings/basketball-men/d1
    For those that are new, these DO NOT, have anything to do with the Final Rankings for the Tournament.
    These are solely based on Record. (The Final Rankings take into consideration the teams Conderence, Competition, and they do in the respective Conference Championships.)

    I like to fill mine out before the official rankings are doled out, and after. To see how close I can get.
    For those that have sat on the sidelines before, I highly recommend getting AS FAR into this as possible.
    It's ALOT of fun.

    That UNC pick looks alot more likely after the way Barnes played today.
    40 and 8 reb. 6-8 from 3, 10-11 from the line.

    Just finished Organizing a Pool at my work.

    Scoring by Round is: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 15.
    ANY upset is 1.5X the point total for that round.

    Donating half our Pool to charity.
    Should be lots of fun!

    Good luck to anyone else who's playing!

    Set one up at your Work! It really brings people together!! ... or divides them violently.

    Man Darrius Garrett for Richmond is the MAN! The dood should of had 5 or 6 blocks (got called for a foul on clean blocks). He has such great timing. I wish we had a 2nd round pick, this guy looks like a steal (if he enters). Apparently he had 12 rebounds and 14 blocks last season (in a game).

    K Anderson's fade away game winner. (Richmond Spiders)

    Memphis got robbed, bullshit nonjumpball call near the end and a non-foul on the last play.

    Texas got screwed by the refs so badly today. I feel bad for Joseph and others on that team.
