      Filled out the dang thing. (Even entered their silly contest; if it has anything to do with my picks I’ll probably be disqualified.) Mostly just so I could advance Colorado through the first 2 rounds. Man, it’s been years since we’ve been to one of these things….

      Gregger, thanks for the shout out and invite. I’m in Venice Beach this week firmly ensconced in an apartment that’s a pitching wedge away from the Pacific. Only thing I’m picking this week is sand out of my shorts and what over priced wine to drink for dinner.

      No Big XII teams will make it into the Elite 8

      Good luck to all!

      I filled out a bracket with KU losing early. I really don’t anticipate this happening, but merely wanted to throw an elbow to Hot Carl’s face.

      Duh! Figured it out! With the help of some homeless dudes at Venice Beach I am prepared to move on to victory or crash and burn in spectacular fashion. No guts, No glory.

      As an incentive to the risk takers I would like to offer $100.00 to the lowest finisher in the OTC pool with ONLY ONE ENTRY under your name. Honor system, NO CHEATING! Please.
      If only here, HONOR AMONG THIEVES. Plan for today is at least 2 meals at In and Out Burger and two large glasses of Metamucil!
