1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    not too bad here, 24 and 25 in the first round, only two teams eliminated from the sweet 16 thus far... Illinois to win it all in both.

    26 - had Syracuse and Kansas losing in the Sweet 16, so at least my Final 4 still has hope.

    I'm a KU fan so you can surmise my mood right now.

    I had UW (Wisconsin) in the sweet 16 in both of my brackets so I am thrilled about KU [​IMG]

    Well, I'll not discuss how my brackets are doing, but the only team that matters beat Cincy to advance to the Sweet 16 last night. Watch out, Utah. [​IMG]

    How many of the sweet sixteen did you pick?

    I only have 9 or the 16 and half of my final four is already gone. Ouch.

    Not that well.  @#$^*)%*$&^$. Bucknell.  I'm in the middle of the pack in my office pool, but I'm not worried.  As the saying goes, "First rounds for show, final four for dough."  Unless a Cindarella wins the whole thing, I think the winner of the pool will need 3/4 Final Four teams and the Champion.

    I'm sitting with 10/16 right in both of my pools and 3/4 final four teams alive.

    My current brackets are:

    Chicago:

    Illinois
    Alabama
    with Illinois advancing

    Arizona
    Oklahoma State
    with OK State advancing

    Illinois to the Final Four

    Albuquerque:

    Washington
    Louisville
    with Louisville advancing

    Gonzaga
    Wake
    with Wake advancing (damnit)

    Wake to final four... this is my weakest bracket

    Syracuse

    UNC
    Villanova
    with UNC advancing

    Kansas
    UConn
    with Uconn advancing

    UNC to Final Four

    Austin:
    Duke
    Michigan St
    with Duke advancing

    Oklahoma
    Kentucky
    with KU advancing

    Duke to Final Four

    Illinois and UNC in the championship game, with Illinois winning

    My other bracket is almost the same, with wisconsin in the sweet 16 and Syracuse instead of Mi State.

    I'm doing well still, rooting heavily for West Virginia though, if UK wins and WV wins, I win the pool with an Ill win.

    That travelling call against Villenova was BS though. Despite the damage it would have done to my bracket, I'd like to see my badgers in the final four and it would basically be a done deal against Villenova, they match up terribly against UW... UNC is another story altogether.

    Yes it was. Glad to see Duke go down. Oh yeah, and Kentucky won. [​IMG] As much as I hate to say it, Louisville is looking tough right now. I'm sticking with my pick of Illinois to win it all.

    [​IMG] Â [​IMG] Â [​IMG] Â [​IMG] Â [​IMG] That was some weekend of basketball. Â I was busy, and the only game I saw live was the end of Illinois-Arizona. Â It was the best comeback I have ever seen in a basketball game, considering the circumstances, and one of the best I have seen in any sport, period. Â In fact, it ranks with the Duke-Kentucky 1992 East Regional Final as one of the best college basketball games, ever. Â Unless you're an Arizona fan.
