    I'm pissed at myself, though. I created a bracket in which any team from a blue state (2008) beat any team from a red state. But I exempted 1 and 2 seeds, so I had Mizzou advancing. Oh well.

      as a "hoops expert" by calling Santa Clara over Arizona in the bracket pool.  It was easy though, because I'd watched the WCC championship the week before and seen that they were a good team to begin with, and then they had that Canadian kid come off the bench who was really good.  The analyst for the WCC championship game was one Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and he referred to the Canadian kid as a "ringer", and I couldn't disagree with him about that young kid Steve Nash.
