2018 March MyGolfSpy Madness


Recommended Posts

Arizona hurts the bracket! Oh well. I always cheer for the upset in the first round, except for games against my schools I went to. Honestly, I couldn't care less about my bracket.... I'd rather a 16 beat a 1, a 15 beat a 2, etc. Much more fun!!!

Pick a Winner! It's that time of the year again. Get the brackets in and you have a chance to win fabulous prizes. What prize? Well how about three dozen personalized Srixon balls?     You pick

Prize updated. Thanks Srixon!

Congrats to AirJordan on the close win. Shoot me a DM and we can figure out how to get you the balls.   Thanks to Srixon and to all of you for playing

So happy about AZ losing. Didn't have that pick, but #nopittyforthekitty

So much for basketball at UofA. My Sun Devils stank up the court at the end of the season, but at least we will have a program next year :P

I would like to note that Upstate NY took the Pac 12 out behind the woodshed in this tournament and put them down. Now for SU to get back at slick haired Jamie Dixon and TCU this evening.

I took Loyola-Chicago to beat Miami. I think the damned Arizona loss is my only blemish. So far that is...

Hopefully UMBC one of tbe local teams i Covered all year shows a bit better tomorrow night vs Virginia.

Slipped into a T17 with a solid game by FSU. My only mistake: I have Villanova losing in the Round of 32. Like I said, I know nothing about basketball...

Wa-HOOOOOO! (Get it?!)

 

I purposely didn't stay-up to watch the 2nd 1/2 of the UVA (Wahoos) vs UMBC because I KNEW it wouldn't happen.... But, it DID!!! It's 4am and I'm stunned! This is AWESOME!!! Like I said, who cares about a bracket, this is what makes the Tournament a MILLION TIMES better than college football!!!!

Go Retrievers!!! (1/2 of my dog is stoked... She's a Goldendoodle!)

Ha. Clark Kellogg mentioned people that probably did just that, "no need to watch this late game 1 vs 16, it'll be a blowout ". Lol it was.

 

I feel the same way about the bracket. And for it to be a team that i saw play twice a week. Ive spent a good amount of time talking to Ryan Odom, Lyles, Maura and Grant this year and i can tell you they are just plain great young men.

 

Ive seen them overcome a few 2nd half deficits by being as tough as nails. And it's a cliche, but they have so much heart and grit. They never get dowm on themselves.

 

On my weekly segment with s local radio station this week, i stopped short of saying they would win. But i honestly did say "some year, a 16 is going to beat a 1. So UMBC is no doubt saying 'Why not us?'"

 

Nights like last night are why i love college basketball and in particular MId-Major hoops.

Today is the day my bracket falls apart. It is going to get busted too, unless a 6-seed can overtake a 3-seed.

So if all our brackets get busted together, then are they really busted?

 

Mine was in awful shape when Arizona lost but I now have new life since UVA went down too. Based on what I've been seeing on SportsCenter all year, the bracket was destined for this many upsets....it's just so darned difficult to pick which ones.

 

I saw a fun snippet on Twitter this morning: out of ESPN's 1.73 million brackets, there's exactly one that got EVERY PICK WRONG in the first round. That's practically Hall of Fame worthy. One of the funniest comments was "they were reckless enough to pick Penn over Kansas but still had Arizona winning"

It's over for me if Alabama loses this one. Come on 9-seed — it's been done before!
