    I think we did the pool at cbssportsline last year, and I'm pretty sure I finished last. I am ready to defend my title.


    Edit: Nope, I was in the middle of the pack.

    I picked based on who has the best colors. :D

    Actually, I did go old school and picked teams I have routed for in years past, but I haven't watched a single game this year. Both my parents graduated from UNC, so that's a given FTW.

    So who do you monkey butts have in the Final Four?

    My ZERO CONFIDENCE picks:

    North Carolina
    Wisconsin
    Duke
    Stanford

    God damn do I suck at this. I may have to change my bracket completely though depending on what happens with tonight's play-in game. :monkey:

    Ha! Like I'm going to let you in on my sooper seekrit picks.



    I will say that my Final Four bears almost no resemblance to IAB or JD's.

    That's the only similarity. The other 3 teams are different.

    I truly pity anyone who is so clueless that they decide to copy my picks.

    I also just decided to change a few picks.

    Tennessee
    Kansas
    UCLA
    Memphis

    Did everybody sign up for CBS's all access pass so you can watch the games at work today and tomorrow? I'd, 2 weeks ago. :)

    My FF picks are UNC vs. Kansas and Duke vs. Texas

    No.

    I got nailed a couple of years ago for doing that. Since then I do not watch any streaming feeds.

    It's on! The video feed is weird. No announcers, no play by play, just basketball.

    The game is in DC. They probably just got stuck on the beltway.

    I'm hoping for a Carmelo like miracle run. #1 pick in the draft...
