My March Madness Picks: Round 1

I'm 18-2 through the first 20. I had St. Mary's over Miami and Drake. I'm just waiting for my bracket to fall apart. I usually start off well and fall apart on Friday.

My March Madness Picks: Round 1

I hope Villanova beats Clemson, but I don't think it'll happen. I also would like another Final Four run from George Mason, since my Terps can't make it. Maybe if I keep wishing hard enough, someone will find out that it was a mistake to send Arizona and they'll send Maryland instead.

My March Madness Picks: Round 1

I like it. You had Xavier over Gonzaga(sb. Georgia). I think Nova will beat Clemson (at least I'm hoping) and I would love to see George Mason beat Notre Dame.  I like the Davidson pick. Stephen Curry is awesome. He gave the Terps problems in the past.
