Excellent pick, you will go far with that one. :rolleyes: :D

Actually Radford beat Kansas in 2005 when KU was a 3 seed, so you never know.




Less than two days to sign up.

As a measure of your sporting knowledge you can compare yourself against my bracket (random clicking mostly) which ends up with Illinois winning. You will all be so upset when that pony crosses the Atlantic. :D

I would imagine that the NCAA basketball tournament doesn't get quite as much coverage over there as it does here.

That stupid firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas likes to claim that the tourney "wastes" something like $2 billion per year in employee productivity. :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

The sum total of my basketball knowledge is:

1. The Harlem Globetrotters (I thought that cartoon was quite funny when I was a child).
2. Magic Johnson
3. The Croations are quite handy aren't they.

I got Carolina, Duke, Louisville, and Memphis. With Louisville over UNC.


So far, I'm 3 for 3.

I had intended to pick Illinois to win but it doesn't seem to have registered. Can I still do that or has the pony slipped through my fingers? :(
