    Fill out those brackets boys and girls!

    Well... March Madness is upon us and it's bracket filling time. It'd be great if we could somehow organize an OTF bracket pool, if anyone's got any ideas, let em out.

    But.. how are your brackets looking thus far.

    My elite 8 is as follows:

    Kentucky vs. Georgia Tech
    Wake Forest vs. Oklahoma State
    Duke vs. Mississippi St.
    Stanford vs. UConn
    (i know i know.. no cinderella's there ;p)

    It ends up on mine with Oklahoma St. vs. Stanford in the championship with Stanford coming out on top.


    I threw in a couple upsets... Illinois-Chicago taking out Kansas, BYU over Syracuse, and Vanderbilt taking out NC St.

    So how's everyone else's looking?

    UK all the way, never heard of the rest.

    Sorry, grew up in Lexington. There's a Duke Road there and at least once a season some wise *** will spraypaint over the d and e. There's rioting in the streets when we win the SEC championship, you don't want to know about NCAA time.

    Syracuse all the way! :thumbsup:

    I am always cheering them, and they actually won last year. HAHAHA. Nobody thought THAT would happen, eh?

    Second choice: Stanford.

    ESPN has a bracket dealie on their site. I started a group there, so if anyone wants to join in, here are the things you need:

    Group: Off Topic
    Password: OTF

    I don't follow college basketball all that much, so don't laugh at my picks. ;)

    I signed up too, Rafty. If you could set up the stale pretzels and flat beer in the cellar ahead of time for me, that'd be great!

    Create an account, go here and click "Create Entry." After you fill out your bracket you'll be able to search the available groups and pick one to join.

    Yo, I'm in, I'm always in for a little OTF sports action.

    I'm Hoopingarner.

    I hope you are all at my victory party, so I can say, like the infamous Rick James:

    Hold my drink, *****. Enjoy yourself. It's a celebration!!!

    Shameless bump. There's about a half hour left to sign up if anyone else is still interested. Group and password are in my previous post.
