I couldn't get in the group this time, ESPN wouldn't let me, so, quick update on my bracket.

I picked all four 10 seeds to win for some reason. That was bad. I thought Oregon and Drake had a good chance, but not sure why I picked NIU. Also picked south Florida who nearly pulled it off...

I picked ASU to beat south Carolina and its halftime and I'm looking good so far...

Really disappointed in Stanford and Oregon state's performances. But at least the pac 12 is 7-0 so far.

My S16 teams are: UConn, UCLA, Maryland, Duke, Baylor, Tennessee, Washington, Mississippi State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Texas, Stanford, Arizona State, Marquette, Florida State, and Oregon State.

E8: UConn, Maryland, Baylor, Washington, Notre Dame, Stanford, Arizona State, Oregon State.

F4: UConn, Washington, Notre Dame, Oregon State

UConn over Notre Dame for the title.

Good luck guys!

I just checked the leaderboard for the first time...

Guess I'm hoping for some magic from Quinnipiac?

And why do certain people have multiple entries? That's lame.

Duke's loss crashed all 11 remaining perfect brackets

now up to 33rd place(tied). Outside of Quinnipiac & Oregon, I guessed my Sweet 16 match-ups correctly.

"Finished" is such a .... subjective term, darlin'. You'll need a few more quarters at Ms. Frumton's Finishing School to finish "better" than Howee. Cool But you may accomplish that.... encourage it.

Thanks for the congratulations on winning the group challenge. I admit I was a little biased in my pick because I am originally from South Carolina. Though I am a Clemson fan.

Seven early entries. Not bad considering the game wasn't even linked to ESPN's fantasy page until today.

So you don't think UConn will make it out of Albany!

I'll be in, but I won't get it set up until I'm back home.

Go Bears. That's for you, Pilight.

The LOL was more for the fact that you're burdened w/ that decision, for the first time, playing the BC.

Head or heart, pilight. Laughing

For some reason, it doesn't put my username under "owner." It lists the "owner" as espn97421685. I can't figure out how to change that. Oh well.

Top right of the ESPN home screen it says Log In. Click that and it will bring up a box. At the bottom is a button marked Sign Up. From there it is pretty self explanatory.

Please be sure to enter and save your bracket before noon. I will kick unfilled entries out of the group.

I use a stat based system that I originally designed to pick men's brackets. For some reason it always gives me more upsets on the women's side.
