I'm always in for a bracket challenge, especially since things are looking good from my perspective for this year

Something tells me it's going to be a boring year with a lot of chalk, even if UK gets upset, it'll be in the finals or FF. The difference between winning and losing will be getting those extra points from the few early round upset picks with middle seed teams.

It's always remarkable to me how little interest there is in this given the scope of the membership here.

Oh well, GO BUCKY!

A 1 seed has to lose eventually. I'd love to see it happen this year.

Is it possible to watch replays of games online? All I see is recap, not replay, at the CBS Sports and NCAA web sites.

I was too busy to do a bracket and go for the back to back win. In fact, I've been too busy to watch any game until UC v. UK on right now. This game might break out in a brawl at any moment.

I was expecting a physical game but not as downright dirty as this one has been.

And I extend that to both sides, even though my avatar probably gives some clue to where my loyalties lie. Kentucky has been a pretty mild-mannered team for the most part all season-this game has brought out the worst side of them and I'm sorry to see that.
