Villanova's upset loss to Wisconsin busted some brackets; looks like 6 brackets had them winning it all!

Hurt me a lot, but I didn't have them going all the way.

It always amazes me that my bracket can look good (to the untrained eye like mine), but I am still in 13th place.

It seemed like a good idea at the time.

My only chance is UNC, and I don't think they're worth trusting. I'm still not sure why I didn't end up with Kansas winning it all. They've looked the best to me basically all year, although they almost lost at home to West Virginia.

I hope you're right, I have Kansas winning. To hell with Duke.

With my well-known eagle eye, I've detected a slight change in men's basketball attire. Just slightly shorter and slightly less loose. There's hope to return to the '60s.

I still say you need the "Whomp Whomp" badge for last place!

Or maybe some creative person can create a new "Last Place Basketball Bracket" Badge?

How can I possibly have a bracket in the top half? I picked at random and know nothing about college basketball.

That's the beauty of the brackets. Usually the winner doesn't have a clue.

Our science museum has rats that play basketball. Today they played the Final Fur. South Carolina beat North Carolina in the finals. Lillian, who represented UNC was the favorite and defending champion so it was a rattastic upset.

Nope, South Carolina and North Carolina won the first rounds and played each other. It went into overtime because the rats kept stopping to scratch their butts. I'm not sure a standing room only crowd of screaming fourth graders helped.

Oh, yeah, guess I kind of forgot about keeping up with the standings because my brackets did so poorly. Our standings are still up in the air, depending on who wins! We have leaders who picked Gonzaga and leaders who picked North Carolina, so the result of this game will determine our winner!

Wow, winning this year's bracketology pick'em game is, like, totally an honor that I'll remember for as long as I can. I'm super lit for this achievement, especially since I literally spent zero minutes watching basketball over the last year.

Shout out to my esteemed competition, it was a back and forth tournament and if another team had won, there'd really be another champion this year. It's an honor and pleasure to be competing alongside such majestic and pride-filled competitors. What a suspenseful and thrilling time.

And finally, Duke sucks.

Congratulations Kenney. See you next year.

Thanks jqubed, I appreciate it. See you around.

Poofguy would have come in second if I'd have got him in there. At least he got second in a money bracket.
