Default first round done. brackets?

i did not fare nearly as well as i had hoped, last year was much better, though i didn't watch as intently this year. anyway, my wins and losses from the first round, feel free to post your own.

Right:
NC over Mt. St. Marys
Notre Dame over GM
Wash st. over winthrop
Louisville over boise st.
Butler butler over S. Alabama
Tennessee over American

Kansas over Portland St.
UNLV over Kent
Kansas St. over USC
Wisconsin over Cal St.
Georgetown over UMBC

Memphis over Texas Arl.
Mich. St. over Temple
Pitt over Oral Roberts
Marquette over Kentucky
Stanford over Cornell
Texas over Austin P.

UCLA over Valley St.
W. Kentucky over draky
Purdue over Baylor
Xavier over Georgia
W. V over AZ
and Duke over Belmont (even if barely)

9 losses with Indiana, OK, Clemson, Vanderbilt, Gonzaga, Oregon, St. Mary's, BYU, and SD.

hopefully the rest will be better, though i already have a loss next round with UConn out of the Sweet 16.

good thing i don't have any money riding on this year's bracket...

Didn't someone from ESPN have Connecticut going to the National Championship game? Price was injured, so I guess he gets a bit of a pass. I haven't checked my bracket since last night, but it wasn't looking too good. Once S.C. lost I gave up any hope that I may have had.

Best is 26 of 32. However, that one could turn to sh!t while one of my worst ones could end up being pretty good.

Bad idea choosing BYU over aTm. Shouldve seen what they did in the Big 12.

I only got one bracket going since it's for a reasonably large amount, and I've picked 26 correctly so far. I only went with 4 upset picks, and 3 of them were right(Davidson, Villanova, Texas A&M... if you even consider Davidson and Tex upsets). I had Vandy, UCONN, and USC going to the 16 though, so it's not looking too good from here on out.

I only got 23 right. Vandy hurts some because I had them in the Sweet 16, but UConn is the killer because I had them in the Final Four. This is the second year in a row I had a Final Four pick lose in the 1st round. This year Washington State will probably go to the Final Four like I had them last year.

Got 5 wrong, WKY vs. Drake, Kent State vs. UNLV, Siena vs. Vandy, Kentucky vs. Marquette, WV vs. Arizona.
