    It's so great to have the tourney back. While March madness is in full form, the Gators were able to avoid the madness yesterday getting by VT in a nip-and-tuck O/T contest. Last year with the tourney cancelled, I created a virtual bracket. We had a panel of bracketologists, many who are participating here, and three judges whose scores were averaged to determine the outcome. It was fun, but "ain't nothing like the real thing baby." So without further adieu, here is your Nuttin but Net bracketology panel along with their day one picks (# correct out of 16) and FF selections. Champion pick is in alt color.

    Thanks @gatordavisl for your hard work in getting this bracket challenge up and running.
    I like the way things are shaking out so far!

    Are you doubling the number of points for each round?

    Since I'm usually pretty bad at picks I'm pleasantly surprised to be tied for 2nd

    I am kind of screwed with Ohio State in the FF, but I am happy to be screwed with not having to play them.

    There's been some movement throughout the day. Grateful dropped out of first for a while, but ended up back on top. After hitting on 10/16 on day one, AKA got 13 on day two and is in a tie for first, along with Lurker.

    Did you happen to catch the end of the Oklahoma game? Kruger is a good coach.

    I had Illinois winning it all, Ohio State in the FF, and Wisconsin going deep.

    I drank the Big Ten kool-aid.

    Yep there were a few of us who picked Illinois. They should not have had to play sister Jeanne in the second round. She is tough as nails. I guess Michigan will get rolled too. Maybe by FSU.

    At the beginning of the season I asked Ken Pomeroy if he was confident in his methodology given the lack of a lot of OOC games. I was particularly interested in how the Big Ten would fare given all the pollster love the conference was getting. He didn't answer which was a surprise. He usually answered my inquiries.

    I even posted on NBN at the beginning of the season that one should discount the Big Ten teams come March Madness given that.

    I should have followed my own advice.

    Hard to get excited about the tourney now with IL (my champ & second fave) and FL out. Here are the updated standings. Murph had a good day of picks yesterday, getting five teams to advance. Look out for Oklahomagator and ApexNC, both who have six elite eight teams alive.
