I bet a lot of brackets are real SHOT.

It is a very upsetting NCAA tourney

I bet a lot of brackets are real SHOT.
I had Syracuse on one (my oddball).
I had North Carolina on one (that one's done now).
Guess I'll have to depend on either UConn or BC. UConn better start playing again. Only up by two with 3:04 left.

That's what I was thinking, Mr. Vanilla Thunder.

I cannot recall another tournament that had this many.

It doesn't seem that bad to me, but I was expecting quite a few anyway...

There were 6 6+ seeds in the Sweet 16 last year (6, 6, 6, 7, 10, 12).

There's 3 at the moment (7, 11, 13) and there's a 7, 8, 8, & 10 left to play.

2005: 6 (6, 6, 6, 7, 10, 12)
2004: 5 (6, 7, 8, 9, 10)
2003: 4 (6, 7, 10, 12)
2002: 5 (6, 8, 10, 11, 12)
2001: 4 (6, 7, 10, 12)
2000: 7 (6, 6, 6, 7, 8, 8, 10, 10)

All the "underdogs" seem to come back and totally outscore their opponents in the second half. Just today...

G Mason 20 45 65
N Carolina 27 33 60

Kentucky 31 52 83
Connecticut 43 44 87

NW State 19 30 49
W Virginia 41 16 57

Wasn't enough for Kentucky though, thank goodness. NW/WV isn't done yet.

Thanks, Mr. Bearcat. I guess I had this impression due to the fact that my bracket morphed into a Charmin two-ply a$$ wipe this year.

Plus tons of games that had very low seeds giving the high seeds a lot of trouble, keeping it very, very close.

No team is safe this year.

And that's really odd, because it's usually the higher-seeded team that will sleep through the first half only to wake up and take care of business in the second.... guess it makes sense the other way, too :shrug:

I don't think there have been more upsets... just the gap closing between the high and low seeds creating more competitive games.

A couple of the 16 seed games were close, three of the 2/15 games were competitive, three of the 3/14 games were competitive. There haven't been many blowouts at all. That is different.
