The big upset of the day has to be harvard over new mexico. Harvard? Must be that big endowment is being used to attract some talent.



A couple seasons ago they hired coach Tommy Amaker who was fired from Michigan and the basketball program has been on the uptick ever since.

I think that is the worst record I have ever heard of from someone who is not just picking randomly. Congratulations?
I have a co-worker who knows nothing at all about college basketball, who was randomly given a team. He said it was some 'gulf cost or something'
I smugly told him he had zero chance.....
As Georgetown is going home and Florida Gulf Coast is now advancing......
As far as Harvard, the Ivies always have an advantage in that they can say the degree you will earn is actually worth something....
But that pales in comparison to the disadvantage of knowing they don't make special dodo classes for you because you are an athlete....

(I didn't participate, but I probably did about as well as tringlomane.....)

Actually, I picked FGCU!
My youngest Daughter is a Junior Marketing major there.
I had to throw some support to the little known State University in Fort Myers.

My worst bracket choice, so far, was choosing my local UNM Lobos to advance all the way to the Championship game.
Losing to Harvard.
WOW!
I don't know everything but I know a lot.

If Louisville beats Duke in the next round, I have a chance.
