I'm just excited that Marquette is likely going to make the tournament after a few years' absence. Otherwise, I'll just be cheering for the Big East teams as usual.

UCLA
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Northwestern is unbeaten all-time in March Madness.

Looool.
Not a wholesome trottin' race, no, but a race where they sit down right on the horse!
Like to see some stuck-up jockey boy sittin' on Dan Patch? Make your blood boil? Well, I should say!

My bracket really took a hit with Notre Dame losing to West Virginia as I had the Irish making the final 4.

I did have Wisconsin over Villanova though.

That was a massive bracket buster.

My Gators are through to the third round--yayy!

Now that Notre Dame is out I'm hoping Wisconsin can pull off a big upset and win it all. Go Badgers.

Ugh! What a disappointing loss by the Badgers. They played well only to lose by one little point.

Gonzaga and North Carolina reach the finals. Both games came right down to the end.

Would have been nice to see Bob and Beverly's silks in the winners circle.

After last year's heartbreak, UNC takes 6th title with win over Gonzaga

It's OK, Carolina, you can open your eyes.

An unwatchable game turned into a beautiful night for the Tar Heels, who turned a free-throw contest into a championship they've been waiting an entire year to celebrate.

Justin Jackson delivered the go-ahead 3-point play with 1:40 left Monday and North Carolina pulled away for a 71-65 win over Gonzaga that washed away a year's worth of heartache.
