I have not seen a bracket challenge set up for LG, so I created one on ESPN.

I'll play. This is good because I always pick UCLA even when there's no shot. It won't be a horrible pick this year.

yeah, if there is no money involved, and my team even has a moderate chance.....I will ride them all the way through the bracket....most fun way to do it in my opinion.

I have UCLA vs Duke in the final... What are UCLA's chances of actually winning? Prefer to cheer for them but my instinct tells me Duke would be more likely to pull it off.

last time I looked at the Vegas lines...Duke had the best odds (5/1), and UCLA was in the top 10 (12/1). UCLA probably would have a little better odds, but they got handed a tough bracket.....have to go through Carolina and Kentucky!

Here was recent Westgate odds....

Lots of "experts" picked Duke to win it all....I don't even think they will make the Elite 8 and will get upset.

Had my annual NCAA pool draft last night with my buddies. We've been doing this since the 7th grade back in 1989, so...yeah, a long time. There are 8 of us and we each draft 8 teams, and do a drawing for draft position in each odd-numbered round, and then go with the reverse in the following even-numbered round. You get a point each time one of your teams gets a win. I got the #5 overall pick and took Kansas, and then got Oregon with pick #12. I was shocked that Duke lasted until the #8 pick; the guy at 8/9 got Duke and Kentucky. (UCLA went 4th.) My 8 teams ended up as...

Kansas
Oregon
Middle Tennessee St.
Wisconsin
Kansas St.
Oklahoma St.
Kent St.
North Dakota

May the basketball gods be with them! Oh, and for the record, as a Bruin alum, I will NOT be rooting for Kent St. in the first round, even though I have them.

I am in!!!

Also a UCLA alum, but this is business, cannot let my heart get in the way of "Victory" ( yup sure, victory )....Well I was co-champ of the NBA playoff pool last season (such a showoff )....

I have the Bruins all the way to the round of "8". But getting beat by the eventual champ Tarheels of North Carolina, real, real tough to do, but this is a man's game.

Good luck to you all....going to be fun, even when I watch my choices crash and burn on buzzer beaters...

I wonder if USC coming back and winning has already messed up a bunch of brackets.

I project everyones bracket will be in shambles by this weekend. If you can get your Final 4 teams to the second week/Sweet 16, I would consider that a success.

Everyone picked Jacksonville St. to go to the Elite 8, right?

I don't watch College basketball and all my knowledge comes from following the draft thread here, so I had my dog make the picks for me.

My Final Four projection was: Gonzaga vs Duke / Purdue vs UCLA. UCLA beats Duke.

I think there is going to be an upset out of the gate with one of the first three games...

Princeton / Notre Dame
UNCW / Virginia
Winthrop / Butler

looking like Virginia is volunteering to be that team

I have lost to people that picked based on mascots....favorite colors...which school they would choose to go to......so there will be no shame in adding a dog to the list.

in best of 1 tournaments, randomness often wins the day. though if you go chalk over several years you'll have more consistent results. it's like a person playing all random will maybe get the champion right in a crazy year but get the entire final four wrong 9 times out of 10, but the person playing chalk will get 3/4 of the final four right 8 times out of 10.
