Who is glued to their TV watching March Madness?.....or has the onset of spring sent you all outside?

Enjoying the games and the upsets this year - always have favored the underdogs!!

Who are you rooting for?

Don't forget that the womens' section starts today too!!

YES!! Been glued for some games...........and for some that I wasn't planning on watching.........YEOW!!!

Some really good games!

The WA. Huskies gave me a good surprise. And I was a little worried about Gonzaga.........but they pulled it off. Will see what they can do tomorrow. They don't have very many veterans. The Zag females played tonight and haven't heard what they did. The Zag's seem to CHOKE...........both the females and males!! I'm still rooting for them!!

GO ZAGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Zags play tomorrow around noon...........you can bet I won't be on here!!!

Gees.......hope they don't choke!!

Have seen some really good ball playing this year..........yes, love the upsets too. It is great when the little 'underdogs' make it..........or someone that hasn't won anything since early 90's or so and they get to continue!!

Well Butler (dh's alma mater) and Purdue (Chris Kramer is from my hometown) made it through. I think they'll both be beat next game but it's sweet while it lasts. I'm thrilled for Cornell too. Brains and brawn.

Totally agree!! The one thing that makes me happy during these crazy days is that the games are good ones!! ......and there sure have been a lot of good games so far!!

MauiMagic - Thank you for starting this thread - Yes! I'm watching it and I'm rooting for the underdogs as well.

Funny comment about Gonzaga - Have you been there? I happened to drive by that campus shortly after they won. It's a very mis-matched campusacross the street is the gymnasium. I loved that they won!

Thanks jerryg..........I love it too. I LIVE THERE! Everyone here loves their 'zags'........sorry the girls lost so early but they still set a school record. They guys have made it every year for awhile........their coach is amazing but the girls just couldn't do it......until this year!

Guess I'm going to have to root for Butler.........my teams all got bounced out......

Just hope the games are good ones!
Well, Butler is our team. I'm so not used to being able to have anyone to root for. I don't think they'll win but what a run. And dh and ds can wear their jackets/shirts with pride.

I live about 30 miles from Indy and although no one in my family went to Butler we would love to see them win. Even if they don't go any farther what a story to see. With the school being so small, the team is so different in that many of the players are from Indiana rather than somewhere else. I love the attitude of the coach not to mention he is the youngest coach to get to the final 4. Good Luck Boys!!!
