    Of all the Sweet Sixteen match-ups, I am most excited for those 3 in bold:

    9 Kansas State vs 5 Kentucky
    11 Loyola Chicago vs 7 Nevada
    3 Michigan vs 7 Texas A&M
    11 Syracuse vs 2 Duke
    1 Kansas vs 5 Clemson
    3 Texas Tech vs 2 Purdue
    9 Florida State vs 4 Gonzaga
    1 Villanova vs 5 West Virginia

    Loyola has been sort of an out of nowhere surprise team for me this year that I was lucky enough to watch a majority of their first two wins, both coming in the last few seconds. Probably my favorite underdog still alive in the tournament, with a legit chance. So naturally I'm biased against Nevada.

    Syracuse is a close second though. Wouldn't be crazy if 2 11 seeds made it to the finals? I know it won't happen. Just hope that it will. But I did pick Duke to win it all, so there's that.

    I had Duke playing Gonzaga in the finals in most of my brackets actually. So my picks are biased to underdogs and my bracket picks. Either way, I see those being the most exciting games to watch out for, for the Sweet 16. Wanted to share and see if anyone here agrees.

    How's everyone's bracket doing? Still have any champ winners in the mix?

    "The madness is real! Syracuse crushes Michigan State's hopes!" - announcer at the end of a really good upset game. 3 seed just lost to an 11 seed - Syracuse. 55-53. Definitely will link a vid in a bit when it surfaces on youtube. Very good game, yet another that came down to the last second. The strategy of always fouling immediately by the coach was absolutely the right call. It won them the game.

    So.. we could possibly see Loyola and UMBC in the Elite Eight? Wonder if that's happened before, a 16 v 11?

    UMBC would have to beat both Kansas State and Kentucky. Way too tough a road I think. Loyola is the true 'cinderella' right now..

    16 seed UMBC just beat 1 seed Virginia.. by 20 points. Cinderella as it gets. Would love to see them go all the way.

    Biggest upset of the tournament:

    How many brackets were broke there? Like 98% of them.

    So Oklahoma's in. They were #3 and trounced TCU 41-17. Might be #1 now. #2 Auburn lost to #6 Georgia 28 -7. #4 Wisconsin plays #8 Ohio State in the championship game. And #7 Miami plays #1 Clemson in the ACC champ.

    We only know for sure that the Sooners made it in. Is it plausible that Alabama sneaks into the #4 spot (currently #5) as Auburn now has 3 losses, even though Auburn beat them?

    Is Georgia a top 4 lock? I would guess so.

    That's OK and Georgia. If Clemson wins, they are staying #1 I imagine unless it's an ugly win. That leaves Wisconsin which is playing the toughest match up of their season. Coin flip there.

    Very curious how this all plays out.

    Who do you see in the CFP, all said and done?

    Will update once the championship games end.

    Must mean they aren't doing as good as a company all around. Just looked up Fiat Chrysler Auto stock price. Shocked to see how cheap it is. $16.39 right now. By comparison:

    GM - $37.67
    Toyota - $113.73

    But then there's Ford. $11.50. So maybe the logic isn't exactly right here. Still 11-16 dollar stock for those 2 companies seems really low.
