  1. I picked both Villanova-Louisville to reach the finals too, with also L'Ville winning on my ESPN bracket challenge.

  2. All right, we agree! If you have not already, check out my announcer predictions.

  3. I got Nova over UConn in the final. BTW, it's the Worst Bracket In The World!

  4. BTW, there is a College Basketball Invitational in 2009 as well as the NIT and the Tourney. All in all, 128 teams will be dancing in four tourneys.

  5. Mr. Fein, you were three-for-eight on announcers.

    Greensboro - Nantz/Kellogg
    Philly - Blackburn (Afternoon)-Enberg (Nighttime and Round 2)/Bilas

    KC - Harlan/Bonner
    Portland, OR - Eagle/Sparnarkel
    Dayton - Crazy Uncle Vern/Raferty
    Miami, FL - Brando/Gminski
    Minneapolis - GuJo/Elmore
    Boise - Bolerjack/Wentzel

    Correct picks in BOLD.

  6. Actually, you hit .500. Harlan/Bonner was also right.

  7. you guys are idiots...those were the WORST picks ive ever seen haha hey can i see your bracket? i gotta take a dump
