    Repeat alert! Davidson Mildcats, 20-0 in the Southern Conference, next closest team is 13-7 and yet, if they lose the conference tourney, they've got the NIT to look forward to.

      I think my Wildcats are on the bubble despite #1 Strength of schedule and #17 RPI....

      Mick Jagger is in better shape than far too many NBA players. It's up in the air whether the same can be said of Keith Richards.

        Cornell got in last night.

        Arkansas sealed a spot with a win v. Vandy yesterday.

        Davidson gets in, don't worry.

            Davidson's situation points to the absurdity of conference tourneys determining the automatic qualifier for the big dance.

            Hawg, you think Arkansas' a shoe in now?

                  I stopped betting on this a long time ago.

                  It was taking away my enjoyment of the tournament.

                    eh. I don't bet much (10-20 bucks per bracket and no more than 3 or 4 pools) and I keep all my brackets pretty much the same. Less confusion.

                      That's reasonable.

                      Another reason I stopped betting was because I was lousy at it

                        Yeah. There in now...and at worst will go 1-1 to finish out...but I think they will go 2-0.

                          Yep. A bad year or 2 would definitely make me reconsider...I always kept brackets since forever ago when my dad taught me about March Madness...I'd fill out the bracket just to be in competition with myself and see how I did with picks...I did ok. And when I was old enough I just started getting in pools.

                          Oh. And your avatar is creepin me out.

                            You have a lot more confidence in them than do I. That Alabama loss was brutal.

                              Their chances are better than Hillary's.
