THE OFFICIAL 2008 NCAA Tourney thread (Week 1)

Yes, I am off Thursday and Friday.

Yes, I am a loser, I am watching the play-in game right now. My wife hates me.

An interesting factoid, do you guys realize the winner of this game gets ONE MILLION dollars???  Nice prize.

Yea I heard that today on PTI. Thats a good chunk of dough.

...On a side note. This one thread is for the entire NCAA tourney? It is going to break every record for most posts and views per thread. (Just thought I would share that with you ;))

No, it won't. The B10 tourney thread did, very few guys will post in this minus the Illini, IMHO. We'll dedicate a seperate thread to Duke, IU, KU, memphis and others as eliminated :thumbup: :thumbup:

Yes, MSU-Temple early Thursday, Baylor Purdue next, evening session is KSU-USC, then GMU-ND
Friday not released, but IU-Arkansas will be the last game.

4 solid matchups, I'm not buying the tourney pack this year.

The official I don't give a shit about this tourney and doubt I will watch thread.  Something about seeing which of the cheating teams is crowned champion makes me not want to support the sponsors that advertise it.

First ever ncaa tourney win for Mount St Mary's.  Apparently Lavin traveled to Dayton and forgot his hair gel.  Or is it motor oil?
