    March Madness 2017 Discussion Thread



    Just realized we didn't have a discussion thread for the annual NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament so I thought I'd toss one up seeing as I'll be working from home and binge watching all the games over the next couple of days. Anyhow, post all thoughts, picks, bets and whatever else in here.

    Started things off today by taking Princeton +7 against Notre Dame so I'm rooting against the Irish in the first game. Would love to see them get knocked out right away.

    +7 worked out either way.

    I have Zona winning it all, so I'm prepared for them to lose in the 2nd round.

    Some close calls right now, but no upsets... yet....

    My three brackets have UCLA, Duke and NC winning. I've got Arizona going out in the elite eight but there's enough talent on that team to go far. Hit +7.5 on UNCW as well and now that I'm up I think I'll take a break for a bit before throwing my winnings away.

    Actually, never mind, I'm going to toss a few bucks on ETSU +10.5 since the Gators haven't looked all that good to me lately.

    Wisconsin/VATech has under written all over it, may have to put a few bucks down on that one too.

    Bucknell currently hanging with West Virginia, hope they can keep it up in the second half.

    I was gonna take Gonzaga but then got cold feet and took Kansas. I don't know anything about college bball, though. I intently watched about 47 minutes this season and 44 was UNO in the Southland Conference title game.

    I had three entries in my girlfriends office pool so I switched a few things around here and there. Fwiw the UCLA one is my original.

    What do you do when you win the NCAA Championship, has their ever been in the past ten years a repeat champion? Nova has a chance to do it, and I'm going to be multi-tasking all night watching their game and Impact Wrestling.

    The Gators did it exactly 10 years ago.

    How much SS? Badgers vs Nova 2:40 EST, hopefully Nova doesn't score for over 6 mins into the game or they will be going home with a team like Wisconsin tomorrow.

    I'm just glad Michigan pulled out the win, made me a little on the money line.

    Got a parlay on the first three games today, ND/WVU Under, Villanova money line and Northwestern +11. Thinking about taking Xavier +6 but they're in tough playing FSU in Orlando.

    Erm, you don't want them to score?

    Typed that wrong. Nova in their last game started off slow, and they are doing it right now down 6.

    Well, sorry HoHo but I'm kind of happy to see Nova go out since it'll fuck up a lot of folks brackets. Wisconsin looked great down the stretch closing on a 15-5 run.

    Yeah Nova had no answer for them. I didn't put in a Bracket, but anyone who put legit money in this drink yours sorrows away people.

    I had Nova going out next round so I'm not too upset about it. A lot of people in the girlfriends pool had them as National Champions so my chances of winning just improved drastically.

    Yeah Virginia or Florida would of given them problems as well if they won. It's hard to repeat as we know, Jay Wright will have them back better than ever next year. I'm wondering if he'll ever get a job as a NBA Coach?

    Wish I could say I didn't see it coming, but about 5 min into the game I called it. I have Gonzaga in my work pool (I work in Philly) and a LOT of people had Nova so it certainly helps me a lot.

    If Gonzaga makes it to the next round (pretty sure they will) they're going to be in tough against that WVU team. I've got Gonzaga in the Final Four so I definitely need them to keep it up for now.
