    Anyone think South Carolina stands a chance against Gonzaga? The way GU handled Xavier makes me think they will do the exactly same to SC, without much issue. Gonzaga has looked like the team to beat the entire tournament (and most of the regular season actually too). I would be shocked if they didn't win it all at this point.

    Do you know of anywhere that has which games had the most destruction? I'd be interested to see what kind of impact Duke, Michigan, etc had as a whole.


    Yeah. Seems like Villanova losing was the worst of it:

    This year, in the Capital One NCAA March Madness Bracket Challenge game, 22 brackets made it to Saturday unscathed, but when 8-seed Wisconsin downed overall No. 1 Villanova in the 34th game of the tournament, all seven remaining perfect brackets were busted.

    The biggest upset of the day, Wisconsin's win over 1-seed VIllanova, impacted more than just the perfect brackets. In NCAA.com's game, Villanova was the third-highest picked team to win the title, with 10.45 percent of our users picking the Wildcats to repeat as national champions. What's more, 40.2 percent had the 1-seed in their Final Four.

South Carolina, Wisconsin, Xavier and Michigan are now the underdogs, Xavier being my favorite of that bunch, and coincidentally the lowest seed still left alive (#11). I like underdogs for sure.
    How far do you see South Carolina getting after this? Do you think it was just luck? Or do you see any kind of fighting chance for them to get further?

    Baylor is tough. I don't see them winning that game. But if they do, it's funny, I think they can make it to the Final Four. I think SC can beat Wisconsin or Florida, whoever they would play next, if they beat Baylor. Then it's on to play to the winner of Xavier/Gonzaga. I've been saying this whole time that Zaga will win it all, so there's that.

    No perfect brackets left standing.

    Last perfect bracket busts after 40 games in the 2017 NCAA tournament

    Best one got 39 games right. Missed out on the Iowa State game. A good line from the article:

    For reference, the odds of flipping a coin and having it land on heads 39 times in a row is 1 in 549,755,813,888.

    I didn't think Villanova would fall this early, but there you have it. Looks like I called it. Doubt any of the other 3 will lose in the 2nd round.

    Villanova falls.. one of my brackets just feel apart. Luckily I picked Gonzaga in my other one, to play N. Carolina in the finals.

    Villanova has now lost in the 2nd round of the tournament 4 times in the last 7 years. Happened in 2010 (#2 seed), 2014 (#2 seed), and 2015 (#1 seed). And now they just lost to Wisconsin 65-62, as the overall #1 seed this year. Seems this school is cursed. Sure they won it all last year, so no Wildcats fan can be too upset over this.

    A lot of 'experts' saw Villanova repeating. Guess it's back to the drawing board. I'm guessing a lot of people's brackets just broke. :/ Mine did for sure.

    I agree. When you see the way the court is situated in the last 10 seconds, Notre Dame shut down the drive to the basket. The 3 was the only shot they had. It certainly wasn't Cannady's fault. If anything it was the coaches fault for not calling the right play to allow for them to have a chance at a 2 point play. Or it was simply that ND was playing solid defense, and they took what they could get.

    Here's the recap (last 15 seconds or so show the final drive) -

    Villanova. Not because they are the worst, they just have the hardest path from what I can see from the bracket. Wisconsin as their probable 2nd game.

    Then if they pass them, Florida or Virginia. Then Duke or Baylor or even maybe SMU.. other top 3 just doesn't seem nearly as difficult.

    superadsdb.com/ad/2779/gnc-couragetocha...

    No reason for this ad to have been banned from just watching it. Perfectly normal super bowl ad. GNC went through the process of applying for the spot, filming it, the whole nine yards.. and then the NFL rejects the ad because the company sells some 'banned' products, ban worthy by the NFL standards anyways.

    My question is why did the NFL allow them to get that far in the process, if they had no intention of allowing the company to air any ad whatsoever?
