LOL @ LAOJoe..  Yeah that is UC-Santa Cruz's logo, of course, NCAA put wrong logo for UC-Santa Barbara.

With Long Beach State leading in double digits in less than 10 mins. in 2nd half over Montana, I had 22 incorrect picks. (Set A - 11-8 with Long Beach State over Montana game left, Set B with 12-8 record and Set C with 14-6 record).

Many of today's games ended up with upsets including #3 Texas lost to Nebraska in Lincoln, NE, and #4 Pittsburgh edged by St. John's at Square Madison Garden in NY.  Nebraska has 16-1 record at home this season and only lost to Kansas.

beer I think I also picked 25 wrong teams... and I picked Montana (who is losing) while you picked Long Beach. However I think you got devestated on your x4 games.

Good thing I used Set A as 1X multiplier, whew!   Bad picks in "Set A" especially Utah busted my 20th confident point as Utes beat New Mexico Lobos 82-80 in Albuquerque and Texas Tech denied my 19th confident point after they beat Baylor 78-69 in Waco.  GEESH!!
