Well, I'm pretty much done.  Three of my final four teams are out (thanks Michigan!).  So far, none of my elite 8 picks have made it.
Ditto.  :(

With Arizona going down, I'm now out of both of my title game teams.

What's crazy is that I had a better first round than anyone - even the Straight Chalk bracket - and have completely fallen off the map after that.

Airboy, your right.  I have 3 teams that play today, that if they win, will help me a lot.

KyzBP and I go head to head with our picks for national champions tonight.  One will continue one with a chance of overall victory and the other will be left a bloody pulp lying in a muddy puddle in a cold spring rain.

At least I  only need to check one side of the brackets. I am completely done on the left side!

Yeah the top half of my bracket is all crossed off too.  I was really hoping Kansas would lose to Iowa State for the third time this year.../sigh/

I cannot be the sacrificial goat this year.  I've at least got Brant beat if everything else goes to hell.

It looks like you are sitting in the best position as far as final four teams go.  Ultimately it's going to depend on who picked the winner, unless some how a dark horse team like Xavier wins it all.

Tonight's south bracket is really going to go a long way in sorting out who the winner will be.  Kentucky v. UCLA and Butler v. UNC.  Three of those teams are someone's pick for the winner.  Eek!  Don't let me down Butler!

that's setting the bar pretty low this year!

They way the scoring goes if you just pick the final 4, the final and the winner and you probably win. Out of the 130+ games you really only need to pick the right 15.

Yep.  Somewhere "else" I got the final four, the finals, and the winner right.  I was in the top 0.5% of the country at ESPN.  Killed everyone in my office pool.

I stopped sweating this years ago.  I try to figure out who the final 8 will be.  Then the final 4, finals and winner.  I do the rest of it pretty quick.  I admit that I picked Xavier to reach the sweet 16, but that was part and parcel of my picking dook to get knocked out early.

Well Butler is not playing well in the 1st half so far.
