    That is correct, sir.

    I'll be watching that game pretending Steve is there with me.

    I'm doing pretty well in the bracket pool so far. Called Xavier right.

    Out looking for stones for my slingshot today, but I think it's going to be a problem.

    My bracket's mostly busted, but I'll have my Badger red on this afternoon.

    So what is the definition of a busted bracket? An Elite 8 team knocked out? A Final 4 team knocked out?

    I blame Wynton, what was the question?

    Not sure exactly, but my pick to win the whole thing just took it on the chin.

    I need to preface this by letting you know that I DVRd the WI-VILLA game to avoid commercials and finished watching it 30 seconds ago. I have also scrolled down to post this before reading anything previously posted.

    OK, now, HOLY MOTHER OF MOTHERS!!

    Sincere condolences to a dear friend.

    Carry on (with props to Chris Buckley).

    Well my tv viewing this evening has been very unexpectedly altered.

    I had intended to watch the movie The Big Short & then the USA-DR baseball game.

    Riveted to Florida-Virginia right now. The VA-WI connection will be discussed ad nauseam if VA beats FL.

    I'd root for the Cocks, those things Trump likes to grab, or any other organ (incl the B3) over Duke.

    Besides, I'd much rather play SC than Duke after we beat FL.

    Well, 3 out of my 4 final four predictions are still dancing. Although the one that isn't I had winning it all.

    Still... Not bad for me.

    Pretty pleased with the B1G showing so far: three in the sweet 16 (might have been four, if the refs had noticed the Zags center actually blocking a shot from INSIDE THE HOOP)

    But, enjoyed the UNI and Drake women competing in the NCAA women's bracket, Iowa making it to the second round of the NIT, and my Augustana Vikings playing in the NCAA Div. III championship game. So, it's all good. March Madness rules!!

    Go Badgers!!

    Happy with what I have to be happy with.

    My interest in NCAA Basketball gets less every year, so I haven't been locked in watching by any stretch of the imagination. However, one thing I've noticed in the games I have watched, is how horrible the officiating is. These guys make NBA refs look like savants.

    Oh, and would somebody please shoot that annoying lounge singer who's hanging around with Greg Gumbel? Thanks, it's appreciated.

    I am not sure how, but after the first weekend I am in first place in the bracket I am in. I thought having Nova loose to the Badgers would kill me, but turns out everyone else had the same thing, so it did not make much difference. Virginia hurt me as I had them going another round, but Michigan kind of made up for it as I have them going to the elite 8. A lot can still happen.

    Same here, Steve. The majority in our office pool had either Villanova or Duke. I'm fourth (out of 19) in the company pool and I had the Wildcats and Duke in the final four.
