After a year of taking off from March Madness at the HTF, we're back!

 

If anyone's up for March Madness picks and seeing how you do against other HTFers, check out the pool link below. You will need to create a Yahoo account (and be logged in) to access the link below. Once you do that, then use:

 

http://y.ahoo.it/DWNmJl76

 

Group ID # 351347

 

Password = oar

 

Just for fun, I set the limit on brackets per person to 2, so if you can hedge your bets, so to speak. Let me know if I've screwed up, or didn't turn on an option to allow others to create their own brackets in this group. Please get your picks in by tip-off time on Thursday (I don't think that they allow us to pick the 4 play-in games from Wednesday night, but you may want to check by Wednesday noon-ish and see if there is an option to pick those play-in games).

Can you post the non shortened link please, our filters think those are dangerous.

Jason,

LOL.  I usually have my bracket busted relatively early.  If I get to the Elite 8, I'm doing well!

I didn't have either in this bracket, but I had Harvard in one bracket.

Without getting political, I do think it's crap she's catching such a beat down by people; by all accounts her grades are good, she made her choice and she's content with it.. I'm laughing at all the people who are threatening her/etc.. I'm sure they all hunted the internet for video

I'll admit it...her alter ego was on my Tumblr feed.

 

And her real name was there...so the fact she was "outed" is a farce. Just some tool who wanted it "off the net and real"...

 

To add to the irony...shoulda known better in 2011...

I don't buy that she was outted, I don't find that that big of a deal.   She's been on several national TV spots as well.  But I do buy that the people who kept throwing threats at her via twitter/facebook/etc. and threatened the university are tools.  :)

Come on Providence. Every post season game Ol Roy wins, a dearly departed real coach rolls over in their grave.

 

Dang it...

Man, that VCU has to be the biggest turkey in tournament history.  That guy is going to have to withdraw from school.

Didn't do much March Madness viewing over the weekend due to being at Megacon, but I'm right in the middle of the pack, but my out-of-left-field pick of Creighton has destroyed one bracket so far.
