RIP to all March Madness brackets. Mine is absolutely mucked.

 

I had Michigan State taking the title. I'll just take the L and sit down.

 

I'll still keep an eye on mine.  With so many ppl burned already, there's some NFL style parity now.

MSU & Arizona have dented my board, yet I'm still breathing among the masses.

 For a game that started 27-6 in favor of Miami, WSU has really fought to stay in this game.

Disappointed Wichita State got bounced. Such a stellar backcourt with Baker and VanVleet, thought they one last deep run in them.

Man, what a ton of upsets! It's gonna be SO exciting to see Duke, UNC, Kentucky, or UConn still end up winning the whole thing. 

 

Well, down goes Kentucky. However, UConn is probably still winning the title.

Wait, Gonzaga is actually doing well in March? I guess they got tired of choking.

When Gonzaga is a high seed, it seems like they can't get to the Sweet 16 (the only time I remember them getting that far as a top-4 seed was the year Morrison cried in their loss to #2 UCLA).  But when they're a low seed or a double-digit seed and the expectations are low....they go far.

 

Currently up 30 on Utah, and they'll face the winner of Syracuse and Middle Tennessee in the Sweet 16.  And they could face two other choking dogs in the Elite 8 to get to the Final Four.  Gonzaga could be here for a while.  Very easily can see them in Houston.

I'm by no means a Gonzaga fan (see: 2005 vs. Winthrop; Adam Morrison), but apart from 2013 (losing to #9 Wichita State as a #1), I don't see how you can label them choke artists.

 

It's still weird to see a #11 wiping the floor with a #3, Gonzaga or not.

Maybe they shouldn't pass up an opportunity to play a WCC team in the years ahead.

I'll see myself out. Still  feel bad for the Utes.

All this Gonzaga talk gets on my nerves... May the Bulldogs choke again and their entire fan base eat a giant bag of flaming turds!

Is Gonzaga the Boise St. of basketball?  Serious question is serious.

I guess Conor McGregor beat Steve Austin there.

 

Notre Dame makes it to the 2nd weekend 2 years running, nice to see them shake the choker label(though against double digit seeds this year).

Seadragon lives in Washington, so that's why he'd rather not hear anymore about them.

 

Gonzaga will never equal Boise State until their CCSLC supporters become ridiculous in their defending of them.

It's fun seeing a 10 seed wearing its home whites in the tournament.  Seems like a weird contingency a high seed would have to plan for, but looks like Syracuse did. Or they had their home uniforms shipped.

 

EDIT: And Gonzaga's the 11, right? Barring disaster, 10-seed Syracuse will play two games as the favorite. That's a neat angle.

I wish Michigan State had gotten the MTSU that Syracuse got.
