Pitt is going to win it because Bob Knight said so!

On a serious note hear are some things about my bracket:

Not too many upsets but mine are as follows:
-St Joe's over Oklahoma
-Temple over MSU(i just had to)
-Maybe Siena over Vandy not sure yet
-Nova over Clemson but could be changed

I have Xavier beating Duke to go the the Elite 8 and I am going back and forth between the Pitt Memphis Sweet 16 match-up. I have a clear Pitt bias but I dont know if we can match-up with Memphis's fire power and athleticism. I am wrestling with the idea of having Luoisville and Wisconsin going to the Final Four but I find it hard to choose them over Kansas and UNC.

Are you really trying to get cocky about having a better bracket than me?

If you were a college basketball fan you would know that most of the time, the people that win these pools are the ones that know NOTHING about college basketball.

Now lets talk about your picks. You picked 1 upset higher than a 7-10 match-up. Whats the fun in that? The purpose of these brackets is to pick the upsets, to have fun.

Next year let me pick all the favorites and I bet I'll be top 5 in the pool.

Are you kidding me?

The people who do the best are the people who know nothing about college basketball? Is this a joke? That's why "College Basketball Anaysts" talk about their picks on ESPN, not Hockey Analysts.

And the purpose isn't to get the picks right?
That's even funnier. So the purpose is just to have fun and not actually pick who you think will win? This is the most idiotic thing I have ever heard. Well look who it is coming from but still.


Last time I checked, the purpose of doing brackets was to "predict" not mess up on purpose and have fun. It's like that with any sport. Bias can get mixed in, but you still are predicting who wins.


If it was for fun, why don't you have a 8th seed winning it all? Upsets, omg, so fun, upsets. Why do most have a number one seed winning it all? It's a prediction not a "fun upset picking" place.

I mean that is one of the stupidest things I have heard on ISH, and that's saying a lot.

Yeah even on ESPN, bracketology is all about picking WRONG on purpose just for fun, it's not about who you actually think will win.


Oh and on our Yahoo Pick'Em league. They have it ordered by who made the "funnest" bracket not who made the most right picks. I mean since that's the purpose and the object.
