I'm in! I like how ESPN let's you just add brackets you've done in other groups. I did one up special for Isthmus though.

Thanks for setting up the alternate bracket.

I've not watched a college basketball game this year that did not involve the Badgers and that shows in my picks. Louisville - no clue? Saint Louis - that's a winner right there. I was this close to picking UW-Milwaukee to upset as well.

I see no one who entered the billion dollar challenge will get Warren Buffet's money. With all the upsets, after 25 games no entry was perfect.

On a side note, why do announcers refer to the basket as "the cup"? Matt Lapey used that term on the radio and I also heard it said by a TV play-by-play man. This isn't golf.

Looks like Fisticuffs is our ESPN contest winner. Congratulations! None of us got the champion right.

Yep and second place in another. No idea how someone who got things so wrong could still win but that's the fun thing about the brackets... I will take my well deserved title as Chief College Shooty-Hoop Expert at TDPF for 2014 very seriously.
