…it’s a 179-way tie for first place. :)
Meanwhile, my brother-in-law Casey is alone in last place, with an 0-for-3 record. Though, um, I’m not sure if his was really a serious bracket…
P.S. It’s early, but the second set of games is looking pretty disastrous for me right now. Pitt and UNLV have opened up big leads over Oral Roberts and Kent State, respectively; and Purdue leads Baylor by 5. The only bright spot is Marquette’s 4-point lead over Kentucky at halftime. But going 1-for-4 in the second wave of games — for a 3-for-7 Thursday-afternoon record, pending the result of the Brainiac Bowl between Stanford and Cornell — would not exactly be an auspicious start. Let’s go, Baylor! C’mon, Kent!! GO ORAL!!!
P.P.S. The score of the UNLV-Kent State game at halftime is 31-10 Rebels. 31-10?!? Really?? Good lord, Golden Flashes, you guys are not helping the mid-major cause here!! Argh!!
