It's March! Which means it's time for another bracket challenge!

Here's a link to the group (SciOly Tourney Challenge) if you want to join. The password is scioly.

Currently, entries can be made, but the bracket itself does not come out until March 11, so remember to set your picks once the bracket arrives!

(Is it okay to discuss games in this thread?)
Soooo how about Arizona's loss? That was one of the only games I didn't even consider picking an upset in.
Also thanks East for running this.

Yep, feel free to discuss here! I actually did pick Buffalo in my "upset special" bracket on ESPN, as well as my bracket for my work pool (since it gives extra points for upsets). The MAC is a strong mid-major conference, and Arizona didn't feel like a strong 4 seed to me (though, none of the 4 seeds so far have really handled their opponents). Had no idea it was going to be that one-sided, though.

Towards the end of that game and the VT-Alabama game (I had predicted both incorrectly), I stopped flipping channels and stuck on the U of M game. Was just in time to watch the shot clock break for 10 minutes...as if that game wasn't exciting enough...
