Your Favorite Team Sucks

It's reached the part of the year where you stop cheering for your favorite team, and hoping to win a plasma tv and start praying for BRACKET MADNESS. 

The infamous Scott Kellie still holds a commanding lead, in both point and potential points with a bracket with all four finals four teams still alive.  Scott is also battling Big Jay for last place (I'm not counting Brock's C-USA bracket for discussion purposes), proving that if you throw enough shit against a wall, one entry will stick.

I just wanted to add that ESPN usually runs a second chance NCAA bracket for the sweet 16 teams. I'll get one of those going too. That should be easier to fill out without blue or red tinted glasses on.

One year I managed to get each of the final four teams wrong even with things narrowed down to 16 for me.

Yeah, my bracket is fucked so I think only picking out of 16 teams I might do a little better

If we can get a 16 team bracket, I won't forget and will actually enter one.

Looking at the brackets on the leaderboard, here are the best ones out there:

http://tcmen.espn.go.com/tcmen/html...entryID=2333501
http://tcmen.espn.go.com/tcmen/html...entryID=1740786

Based on the overall leaderboard, I think Scott and Burket are technically still alive for the plasma TV, but I'm not sure if any brackets have the same final four / finals teams as those two.

One of the leaders in the bracket contest seems to be a Bama fan that decided to stick it to the SEC teams:

He's got bama going all the way, and zero SEC schools in the sweet 16. He would have been doing even better if Vandy didn't get their shit together come tourney time.

Now he just has to hope for that Oklahoma St. vs Alabama nation championship

Whats left of the NCAA tournament? Well... here is what I hope will happen:

St. Louis: UAB and Nevada continue the miracles and battle it out for the Final Four, with a regional championship game like that, I'd be happy with either team.

East Rutherford: Wake Forest annihilates St. Joe's. Even though I'd like to see Phil Martelli put his foot up Billy Packer's ass, I just think that team is a bunch of crap. OK St. and Pitt have a war that goes to 4 OT's and someone hits a last second shot from half court, thus being weakened so much that Wake walks right into the final four.

Altanta: Hell region! The battle for Satan's right hand: Duke vs. Illinois. I hope both teams get struck down by lightning, or all the crowd turns into zombies and eats both teams (I saw Dawn of the Dead, and its still screatching through my head). The lesser of two evils: Illinois
Although I'm a UC fan and morally obligated to hate Xavier, I have to cheer for them to survive this region, but if Texas were to slip out, I wouldn't complain.

Phoenix: Syracuse vs. UConn, just to finish off the SEC. Once again, either of these teams is fine with me, I'll lean toward Syracuse, just for underdog purposes.

Miracle pick: Xavier over Nevada
Real pick: UConn over Wake

Nevada is the team furthest west that it still alive.

I'll be pulling for good ol' Nevada, Xavier and UAB (which ESPN's daily quickie pointed out stands for upsetting america's bracket).

Fuck Duke and Illinois. Xavier, St. Joes, Nevada and UAB in the final four baby.

Church on Monday, March 22, 2004 at 6:53 AM

I would alos love to see Saint Joe's beat Wake so Martelli could walk over and start bitch slapping Billy Packer

Phil on Tuesday, March 23, 2004 at 4:52 AM

this guy can jump: http://www.wowbasket.com/pds/pds/du...contest2003.wmv

adrian on Tuesday, March 23, 2004 at 5:08 AM

That S.O.B can get up. Wonder how high he can jump?

Phil on Tuesday, March 23, 2004 at 5:41 AM

He plays for Western Washington U, and according to scouts he has a 41" vertical. Crazy.

Phil on Tuesday, March 23, 2004 at 5:44 AM

err, I mean Eastern Washington

Brock on Tuesday, March 23, 2004 at 5:45 AM

41" is high, but Eli Schoen had a 42" and he couldn't do that!

Phil on Thursday, March 25, 2004 at 9:28 PM

Holy crap, St. Joes wins again.

adrian on Friday, March 26, 2004 at 5:24 AM

I can't believe St. Joes made it that far. Kudos to the Martelli's team. Also...ROLL TIDE (the real SEC team)

Bigworm on Friday, March 26, 2004 at 6:45 AM

In high school before I got fat, I played in the streetball showdown and they measured mine at 40". That being said, I am not really impressed. Who I am impressed with is this baseball player who is in the Tampa Bay Franchise (I think). He can run from home to first in something like 3.4 seconds and he claims he could jump over a car (door to door), though he can't do it anymore because it is an actual clause in his contract. Now that is impressive.

Phil on Friday, March 26, 2004 at 6:52 AM

I think the guy you are thinking of wes is Joey Gathright

Phil on Friday, March 26, 2004 at 6:56 AM

I just found an article on him that says he can jump a car front to back, and has jumped THREE cars door to door.

Bigworm on Friday, March 26, 2004 at 8:32 AM

Yeah that is him...couldn't remember his name for the life of me. Now that guy is impressive!

Brock on Tuesday, April 06, 2004 at 6:45 AM

Can we say comeback?! I go from 14th place to first on the back of Emeka Okafor. I managed to completely straddle the Natty Sci bracket challenge with a 1st place finish and a 25th place finish. Way to go C-USA... another underacheiving postseason.
