How Are Those Brackets Holding Up?

Well, if you’re like me, you took most of the biggest gambles on your NCAA Men’s basketball brackets in the first round. I just couldn’t resist advancing my favorite teams, although I knew that it was a long shot.

After watching yesterday matches (especially UGA vs. Xavier at the Verizon Center and my Kentucky Wildcats vs. Marquette) I actually thought my gamble teams might have a fighting chance. But… no. Well, I did pick Kansas St. to beat USC – so I guess not ALL of my gambles were a mistake.

Update – I’m currently 11th in my office pool. And we have some major games today! Though I should be cheering for the hometown team, I’m hoping Tennessee beats American (sorry!) because I’ve chosen TN as my tournament champions.
