It’s that time of the year again, time for 68 college basketball teams to compete in a playoff format for a chance to go to the big dance. I’m sure there will be plenty of buzzer beaters, cinderella teams, bubble teams, and upsets in this year’s March Madness. The tournament begins with the First Four on Tuesday and Wednesday. Just for fun, post your own predicted brackets from any major sports site. Here’s my bracket:

You cannot view these picks until after the deadline on Thursday, March 21.
If this is your bracket, you need to sign-in in order to view and edit.

I’ll have a bracket going myself, so I’ll post mine here too when I put it together.

Well oops.

You really like sports, don’t you chowzburgerz? Anyway, the only team I could even remotely care about is Gonzaga, because they’re a “Washington team”. I use quotes because it often seems to us out here along the Pacific that Eastern Wasington might as well be a different state for all the impact it has on us. But still, you take what you can get. So what are you guys’ thoughts on the Zags- as good as many say they are, or overrated and soon to be exposed as such when they have to play real quality teams?

I’m just surprised Michigan actually made it for once, but why are they in the South division?

Why are the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC West when they’re east of the Dallas Cowboys, who’re in the NFC East? Answer: Sports people are terrible at geography.

A year ago I would have come in here saying “Oh I hope Florida wins it all.”

Then this February, they denied my application.

So now I don’t really give a rat’s ass who wins this.

If you feel pain, then you should know how much I feel when there are no Texas teams in it this year. Even without Texas in the tournament, I still give a rat’s ass.

Damnit Harvard, La Salle, and Florida Golden Coast University, why must you rustle our jimies? I’ll upload the results of the remaining matches when every match is done.

Gulf Coast, biatch. The Gold Coast is on the opposite side of the state, where I rep from.

Had Saint Louis in the Final Four, I had Gonzaga in the Final Four, and I had Georgetown in the Final Four.

At least my National Champion of Miami is still there. Surely they won’t lose in the next round, right?
