BTW, I voted the 'Bigot' option because I'm taking the field. Go, Orange!

After WKU's Big Red, Otto the Orange may be my favorite college mascot. (Followed closely by the Stanford Tree -- though I hear he's not 'official'.)

Big Red and Otto are great mascots. I also like Brutus the Buckeye just because he is a seed and a mascot. Do you remember the big fight between the Stanford Tree and the Cal mascot. It was classic.

No, (just googled it, though -- pretty hilarious) but I do remember the Hokie Bird beating up Sebastian the Ibis!

The sum of the seeds in the sweet 16 is the biggest in history??THAT is a cool fact..It kind of tells you that the So called experts aren't any more knowlegable than most of us...Thats why when I make my picks I NEVER heed the advice of these overcompensated Bums,,,

Since it’s a comparison of “so called experts” on this year vs other years, all it can really tell you is that the “so called experts” seem to have done worse this year than they did in previous years.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

The experts only need to be 5% better than average to make money. Of course with that slim margin they are not going to win every time.

I just can't sit through a women's game. I will check the scores at the end of the night but watching it is painful. The only women's sports I actually watch are tennis and volleyball.

The Mens game is faster and much more athletic
on the flip side, too much standing around on offence while a one on one matchup is going on
No doubt a slower and less athletic game on the Womens side
their flip is a more beautiful game with passing

Well it is pretty clear who the best college basketball conference was this year. The Pac-12, considered a weaker conference this year by most, put 4 teams into the sweet 16 and 3 of them have advanced to the elite 8. The only one that didn't advance was Oregon, which lost to another Pac-10 team, USC, so only 1 of those 2 could have advanced.

Meanwhile, a lot of so called experts thought the Big-10 was the best conference, and although Michigan has advanced to the elite 8, the conference as a whole didn't do very well at all.
