Bracket, bracket

After the first weekend I have a score of 55 (with one point for the first round and two for the second) in my family pool. My parents generally provide the funding so there isn't really an entry fee. The only downside to this is that my dad can cancel it (like last year, when none of us picked a single final four team).

For those who care, I missed 5 in the first round (Butler, Kentucky, Indiana, Winthrop, and Nevada) and 2 in the second (Butler and USC). My family also has a prize for largest upset, so I'm in the running for that by picking both VCU and UNLV (both a 5 seed difference). I've still got all my elite 8 teams so I could do pretty well this year. I'll check back in after next weekend.

How does yours look?

In the bracket that I filled out in about 30 seconds without paying too much attention, I've still got all Elite 8 teams in play (and was only one game away from having a perfect East bracket). I'm in second place there. In the bracket where I spent slightly more time and did a little research, I have 7 possible Elite 8 teams still in play (damn you, Wisconsin!). And in the bracket where money is involved, making it the most important one and the one that I waited until the last minute to turn in so as to maximize research, I'm getting my ass handed to me on a platter.
