My pencil tip is broke

After completing five or six bracket challenges today, my pencil tip should be dull and broken. But since they are all done on the computer, in actuality, my fingertips and mousing hand is feeling a little numb.

I tweaked the brackets within them, but they all had the same outcome, the same National Champion. It did not matter how they were laid out with opponents, they ALL had the same outcome.

How did your brackets come out, once you sat down and completed them?

Basically, I am Overwhelmed by Brackets

I am sitting here, waiting for the final moments of the season to unfold, before the madness ensues this evening with the announcement of the brackets. Who's bubble will be burst, who will be let in. My confusion is among the total amount of bracket challenges that I am in, as I have lost count. Here's my question, in the past, I have done maybe one or two, and tweaked them, maybe having UNC being the winner in one, just out of fanhood, sometimes I have had UNC the winner in both, because as a basketballologist, that is what I feel. I am in SOOO many this year, I don't know how to tweak them! I may even do just one based on complete and sheer upsets...like VCU over dook last year. That should be fun.

So, when filling your brackets out, what is your method to approaching March Madness. Do you choose the underdog, and hope that Cinderella finds that glass slipper and carries you? Do you stick with the seedings? Which seeding match ups do you think are more volatile, and are more at risk for an upset?

dook wants to know...do tell! I know you want to visit the bedside drawer again, but we must curb that for now, IT'S TIME FOR MARCH MADNESS MY FRIENDS!

An avatar bet as it should be, I WON

Okay, my avatar bet saga continues. When Carolina hosted dook in the earlier half of the season, I lost my avatar for a week to tribe. He selected a pic of rat king cutting a net down, which I affectionately referred to him swinging a tutu around.

With Carolina ruining yet another Senior night at Cameron, I won the second part of the avatar bet with tribe. So, I selected the following avatar...
dook is evil she chooses avatar's that are just cruel if you bet her in an avatar challenge

man I am evil...but this is rather funny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

March Maddness Hits the ACC

After this weekend in the ACC, March Madness has clearly hit the ACC.

Saturday, dook was taking on NC State at the RBC Center in Raleigh. dook trailed NC State for the duration of most of the game, State had a convincing lead, so they thought, but dook chipped away at the lead and ultimately won the game with DeMarcus Nelson hitting free throws.

Also Saturday, Carolina traveled to Boston College. Tyrese Rice shot lights out with over 30 points in the first half for the Eagles. Carolina also overcame a huge deficit in the second half to ultimately defeat BC by ten with a final score of 90-80.

And this evening, Clemson traveled to College Park to take on Maryland. The Terps had a convincing double digit lead as well. Clemson came back in the last 11 minutes of the game and outscored the Terps 34-11, winning the game on a clutch 3 pointer and forcing some key turnovers at the end of the game.

Looks like it was not a good weekend to be the home school? dook and Carolina winning really does not affect the ACC too much, keeps them both tied for first in the league, but how does Maryland losing to Clemson affect the middle tier of the league? Well this win for Clemson sets them apart from everyone else, putting them at 9-5, Virginia Tech 8-6 and Maryland 8-7.

Definitely March Madness has begun in the ACC...
