Made a ridiculously B1G-centered bracket. Expect nothing to come of it, but one can hope.

Thanks for making the group!

I have 2 teams from B1G in Final 4, and MU winning it. And this one is less B1Gcentric than my first one. LOL I'm such a homer.

I so want a 16 to beat a 1 at some point.

Still not picking it, but wouldn't it be fun?

Within the next 5 years I would guess it will happen. Parity is getting more and more especially with transfers, and the future change to age requirements for NBA that will probably happen.

I will go on a limb and say Duke will be the first for it to happen too.

Now, you know well enough that Bill Self will not let that happen. Kansas will be the first

I will say this much. This year's bracket is definitely one of the bigger crap shoot brackets I can remember in recent memory. I've done about 5 different brackets and got I don't know how many different picks between them all.

I think Villanova was overall #1 seed?
Actually, Villanova was overall #2, Virginia is #1

I have high expectations.

I have no B1G team losing more than one game.

Maybe it's because of how Illinois has been, but I have paid less attention to college basketball this year than any in my entire life so I really had no idea what I was doing with my bracket this year so 90% of the time I just went with the "Wouldn't it be cool if..." strategy of picking haha. Go Houston!

So is the prize for winning "everyone on the board has to agree with their opinions, regardless of ridiculousness, for a month?"

I think winning should get you at least 2 beaches houses for future betting purposes. Or 1 beach house and 1 bridge to sell

First day wasn't good

At least I didn't have Arizona as my eventual winner. None of us are getting a beach house.

I'm in... U_of_I_7 is my bracket name. It was satisfying to see Arizona lose last night, it just goes to show that if a team plays great defense, has great effort, and has shooters they can beat anybody. Hope our Illini continue to build and play like that.

I know I won't win it all. But I will take the bragging rights for now.
