The first day of March Madness is in the books and their was definately some exciting games. I agree with the folks who say that the magic of the NCAA tournamount is watching the early rounds. Boston College who many people have as a sleeper team nearly gets beat by Pacific. Tennessee gets a miricle shot from sharp shooter Lofton to squeek by Winthrop, and George Washington some how comes back on UNCW after being down pretty big.

The teams that burnt my brackets yesterday were Wis. Milwaukee, Montana, Teaxs A&M, and Indiana. Oh, by the way, The SEC as a group did us proud yesterday with all four teams playing getting wins. Besides the Gators, Congrats go out to LSU, Tennessee, and Alabama for their first round wins.
