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.

    is there a booby prize for last place, cause I figure I am a shoo-in at this point.

    I'd just like to say that Washington was robbed.

    Yep; even though I picked Uconn to win it all, the wrong Huskies advanced last night.

    Although I am biased and a Uconn fan, I think it is hard to say that. Uconn played their worst game of the tournament yet hung around the entire game with a very good Washington team. The last 5 minutes were a thriller. Actually the Florida game was excellent at the end too.

    Texas lost today destroying my Uconn - Texas final. My bracket is done.

    After yesterday's games, I've pretty much lost any chance I had of winning this thing. UConn is my only Final Four team still alive.

    I think I'm just going to root for UCLA, at least now the PAC 10 should get some respect.

    Hear, hear! My new concern is UCLA. They must go down.

    No reach to watch the rest of the games now, bah. I guess I'll just have to wait till next November and the NBA Finals this year.

    Did ANYONE have Gmason going to the FF? I picked them to beat UNC in the first round purely out of spite.

    Out of over three million brackets submitted to ESPN, exactly four got the Final Four correct.

    Anyone who is rooting for Florida, LSU, or UCLA to win it all this weekend is the type of person who would have been cheering for the Soviet Union in 1980.

    Go Mason!

    And one of those four is me.

    Actually no, I'm completely out of it. Not a single final four team. [​IMG]

    Same thing happened to almost everyone in my bracket at work--I was the only one to get even one final four team. If UCLA beats LSU, then I win it.

    And as the official king of the SF pool, I reserve the right to brazenly steal FNB's crown monogram for all Jantzen orders over the next year [​IMG]

    You would want to use a crown over a basketball, I think.
