TJ, you're going to be so embarrassed someday. I root for whoever is the lowest seed. Have a good day ya'll.

Here are the current standings in the LJWorld OTS NCAA Tourney Pool:

Rank Entry Points PCT 1 Enochville 5 , 720 99.8 2 Jouhnes 2 , 630 91.9 RonBurgandy3 , 630 91.9 4 Jouhnes 3 , 620 88.1 5 RonBurgandy1 , 600 81.3 Strong 3 , 600 81.3 Noland 1 , 600 81.3 8 Gootsie really thinking , 590 77.2 9 Strong 1 , 560 62.3 Son of Das Ubermime , 560 62.3 Return of Das Ubermime , 560 62.3 12 Enochville 3 , 540 51.5 13 Robert C. Jouhnes , 530 46.2 14 Enochville 1 , 510 36.0 15 Enochville 2 , 500 31.3 16 Das_Ubermime , 490 27.0 17 Strong 2 , 480 23.1 18 avhjmlk , 470 19.6 19 RonBurgandy2 , 450 13.8 20 Gootsie by heart , 440 11.5 21 Enochville 4 , 420 7.8 22 Gootsie alphabetically , 310 0.9 23 Gootsie backwards alpha , 250 0.4 24 Ceallach , 0 0.0

A couple of reminders: Cellach did not complete her entry, Jouhnes is The_Original_Bob, and Strong is sgtwolvervine. Although, I am currently leading, I don't think I'll win because Enochville 5 had North Carolina beating UCLA in the final.

Someone should have said, "What tournament? Basketball is dead to me. Thanks, Coach Self."

Did anyone here see or hear about that UCONN vs Washington game last night??!!

Wow! What a game!

I still think it's UCONN's tournament to lose.

I mean, last night they (UCONN) played kind of a lousy first-half (lots of turnovers).....and yet, they still scored 83 points in regulation!! (The game went into overtime.)

UCONN just has tons of talent.

I watched the UConn game. Unfortunately, I don't think they deserved to win it... and when the refs review that game on tape (esp. the last 90 seconds), they should be ashamed.

Anywho, WS lost last night by 8. Kind of sux.

e_m, Welcome to the board! Now, we do have pretty stringent rules on here so you need to behave yourself!
As for offering yourself up as a target...can you climb a pole?

I'm a Big 12 snob -- KU first, then Big 12 teams, after that I pretty much stop caring. I do continue to watch though, it's college basketball and that's entertaining.

I think it's called, loving someone to death.
