March madness thoughts

We are down to the sweet sixteen. Everything has mainly gone to form. While there have been some close calls, the top 4 seeds in the East and South regions have advanced. In the West the top 3 seeds and the 5 seed are still alive. The only double digit seed is Arizona and since they are a program that has won a national championship and been to 4 Final Fours they aren't going to get anyone buzzing with Cinderella excitement even if they do in fact go all the way.

As far as my bracket I did not pick too many upsets and thought it would get busted up because of that. As mentioned there have been very few upsets and I am still very much alive. If your final four picks make it into the Sweet 16 you are always doing well. In the first round I went picked 25 out of 32 games correctly and the second I picked 13 out of 16 games so I should be near the lead if not on top with the early office pool results. I am probably jinxing myself but many people are out of contention at this point with their grids. Then again the more points are at stake the closer we get to the championship game.
