How are your brackets holding up? Marquette, Syracuse, and just now K-State losing didnít do me any favors. Other than those, Iím sitting pretty nice. For the time being

No one fills out brackets? Heresy! Or did everyone throw out their sheets on Saturday?

Iíve got 2...

First round 25-7 on one and 24-8 on the other.
Second round - zero losses on either sheet so far.

Although UCF is giving Duke a run for their money. Tied at 57 with under 10 minutes to play. As a UNC fan, Iíll take a Duke loss any day, even if it costs me a game or two on my sheet

UCF lost a true heartbreaker. Down one, final possession, and a tough layup goes in and out of the basket. Teammate gets an offensive rebound, and rolls around inside the basket and doesnít fall. One of those games that itís truly unfortunate someone had to lose. Duke played well and deserved the win, but they know they got lucky.

Another win on my sheet. I was rooting for UCF even though I was betting against them. Wouldíve loved to see them pull off that upset.

I filled one out for the family pool. Took some chances in the first couple rounds. Going pretty well so far, but lost my first Sweet 16 and Elite 8 team when Buffalo lost today. Hoping for an Oregon win tonight.

Edited due to confusion...

I took Buffalo on one sheet and Texas Tech on the other. I need Oregon and Houston to win to have 14 out of 16 in the Sweet 16 correct. Marquette and Buffalo are my only two misses in my original bracket. My second bracket will be 12 out of 16 regardless of the final two games tonight.

Oregonís dominating Irvine right now. Iím surprised the score is as close as it is, even though Oregonís up by 12 at the half.

I need Oregon and Houston to win to have 14 out of 16 right for the Sweet 16. Marquette and Kansas State going out in the first round hurt me. I didnít have either one going to the Elite 8, so Iím sitting better than I couldíve been.

Just now seeing this. So far, my bracket is holding up well. I've got Duke and UNC in my finals, and all of my Final Four teams are still in it (Duke, UNC, Tennessee, and Gonzaga).

The K-State and Iowa State losses have hurt me the most so far, as I had both of those teams getting to Sweet Sixteen.

Everything was going great until Gonzaga. I'll still win the family pool, but the rest is in the toilet.

Yeah, I was hoping for a repeat for Gonzaga!! The clock was on Texas Tech's side as the game reached its final minutes!!

I thought I had a solid final 4 and championship. Then Auburn impressed everyone and took away my Tar Heels. Then Texas Tech knocked off Michigan.

I had Michigan vs Michigan State (Michigan State winning), and UNC vs Virginia, with UNC winning it all.

Because I ran out of characters
Iíve met Bruce Pearl behind the scenes and few times. Great guy whoís exactly like he comes off on TV. Iím rooting for him even though he knocked off UNC. If it was anyone, Iím glad it was him.
