Thought the tourney deserved its own thread Very Happy

Some huge shocks today, first with Norfolk taking out Missouri, and my beloved Duke rolled by McCollum's LeHigh Sad

NC State also beat San Diego State, an upset, but not of the magnitude as the other 2.

But everyone's brackets are busted now lol. I think there's only been FOUR ever 15 over 2s in the tourney's history, and we got 2 in 1 day lols.

Its an annual American college basketball tournament.

64 of the country's best college teams go at it in a win or go home format.

Easily the most entertaining tourney around cause the underdog is capable of knocking out a powerhouse just like we've seen today.

My co-workers were all deceived today by Norfolk State lol.

One of them was stationed there when he was in the military and didn't even know they had a Div I squad Very Happy

My bracket was already busted though so it's all good. Paid up my 10 bucks already.

Still have Kentucky to win it though.

UConn lost so idc anymore Sad Real disappointing. Wasn't expecting them to win it all this year again, but I at least expected a S16 run.

I'm rooting for Carolina or maybe even Louisville at this point, anybody but UK or Syracuse.

Some good upsets last night, never gets old seeing Duke lose.

American College Basketball. Best postseason tournament in probably any sport imo. Single elimination, 66 teams(or is it still 65).

Think it's still 65, but yeah...it's been awesome thus far.

Lehigh beating Duke was as massive a shock as I've seen watching this sport. I couldn't believe it.

^ Yeah, I read on twitter today that ESPN's bracket challenge thing, doesn't have ONE perfect bracket left. And it's only been 2 days.

I think Syracuse could go down today to Kansas State, just a hunch. They're not playing that great recently, and lost Fab Melo(starting C) for the rest of the year.

I thought the best post-season tournament in any sport would've been the Emirates Cup Laughing

But yeah, March Madness is huge in the US, even amongst non-fans of the sport.

I shouldn't say it's the best, but I think it's definitely the most exciting.

Why does CBS have Charles Barkley doing NCAA coverage? He only follows college ball for a few weeks every year and then acts like an expert.

Last year he kept hating on the Big East every round.
