I wanted to wait until after all the play-in games to fill out my bracket, but I'm simply going to be too drunk tonight and too hungover tomorrow to make it happen. Doing it now.

Still holding out, even though I don't think any of the teams playing tonight have a chance to win a first round game. Iona was really the only one I wanted to wait for... and I'm still waiting for them to come out of the half time locker room.

Not quite the same drama with tonight's play-ins as last night.

I don't pay nearly enough attention to get an actual sense of the field, so I've been using a combination of the KenPom stats to iron out some of the under/overseeded teams, and Nate Silver's March Madness to decide some of the more cryptic early tournament mid-bracket matchups that won't ultimately go anywhere.

last year my stealth warhorse Utah State flamed out instantly, I'm hoping for better luck this year with Belmont and Memphis.

Elite 8:

Kentucky
Baylor
Wisconsin
Ohio State
Memphis*
Missouri
UNC
Kansas

*suck it Michigan State!

I think LIU Brooklyn will make things interesting with Michigan State

well, it was nice having a free webstream for one year

$4 for all 67 games on any/all platforms isn't bad, though. Just wish some of this dough went to the players (...legally).

If you have cable, you can pretty much watch them all online for free. Especially simple to watch are the CBS games.

I paid the 4 bucks... worth it to be able to watch at work. I figure if I wasn't at work I'd probably be at a bar watching the opening round, so 3.99 ain't that bad.

Pretty shrewd pricing; I don't think many people will balk at paying $3.99. At least the CBS games are free.

This shit was relatively boring today, in my opinion.

It absolutely was. Some good, close games, but ultimately nothing memorable. A couple of the games were fun, though (Wichita State-VCU was a close game the whole way).

Tomorrow has the better match ups for great, close games, though.
