No Cinderellas this year...all chalk.

Buffalo? "They were who we thought they were."

I got 8 of the final 16 and I am tied with 4 of the 16 in my bracket challenge group. One guy got 10. $100 per person.

Minnesota??? Never pick with your heart.

Bobby, I took Buffalo further than I would have based on your recommendation. Don't worry, I don't hold grudges. My brackets went to sh*t without you. Hoping for a Dook-UNC championship game now. The Big 10 has gone further than I would have expected. Big 10 teams usually choke like IA did yesterday and typically don't make it beyond the 2nd round unless they are an exceptionally strong team. I have to admit, the teams that made it look pretty darn good. How about that UCF team yesterday! Their big guy can slam it without even leaving the floor! Dook was extremely lucky to make it past them, even with Zion Williamson.

Let the games continue!

I REALLY don't remember recommending Buffalo to anyone for basketball and as I have posted before, I DON'T normally watch BB...........it BORES the heck out of me. The game doesn't start until there is 2 minutes left and then the teams take 50 times outs or fouls to stop the clock.....B O R I N G ! ! !

BTW don't feel bad, I had the Bulls going to the Elite Eight because I heard some "expert" predict that..... I had them lose in that round thinking I might do good with that in my bracket.... my sons ESPN bracket he runs has 55 players and I'm now tied for 21 and the wifey tied for 26.....so no money coming this way unless a miracle happens......LOL

Iowa didn't choke. They got the crap beat out of them in the first half, big time. They came back pretty good and made it a game, at least.
It was a game I wasn't expecting a win from.
Maybe next year well make it another round.

Iowa looked like garbage for a lot of that game. Remember they were the underdog and playing against a team that was #1 in the nation for a lot of the season. Iím not sure it was a choke as much as it was a game they were outclassed in and almost pulled off. That OT performance was pretty terrible, considering what they had just done in the second half.

I too thought the big ten was well overrated, but they are holding their own pretty well.

UCF should have beat Duke. Had three chances to win, two of them very routine/easy for college basketball skill level.

I called it "choke" but maybe I should have said that IA just didn't have what it takes to win the game after the huge momentum swing in their favor the 2nd half. I'm a Big 10 fan but have been disappointed too many times over the years by various Big 10 teams in general not performing at the level necessary to advance beyond the 2nd round and further.

Mojo,

You are preaching to the choir. It seems the teams in the East always have the upper hand. Hopefully a BIG10 team will get hot this year.
To bad Taco wasn't in the game at the end to punch a flat footed dunk down and send Duke packing.
