Its the tournament at the end of the year that decides the champion. Even if you don't have any interest in basketball it's pretty fun to fill out the brackets and predict the winner. It's an office past-time all across America. It's sort of like the FA Cup, everyone has a shot to win it. Though like the FA Cup the majority are long shots. But unlike the FA Cup you aren't just winning the cup, but the entire league.
It's nuts because college sports really is where the passion is in American sports, which makes the nickname March Madness appropriate.

USC need to win the Pac-10 tournament to get in. Probably won't happen.
UNLV are a projected 8 seed right now. They aren't as good as they've been in past years.
I looks like your Aggies are projected as a 6 seed right now.

my spartans are really making it difficult to get picked this year. i think they will though, just due to the name, even if they were blown out at home (dont remind me) to purdont today. if we win out and make a decent run in the big10 tourney we'll be fine.

On a side note and in relation to UNLV, I found this (as an Englishman) pretty amusing:
In particular the part where Soliciting is prohibited.
Can you just imagine how distracting it is if you're studying for an exam and a woman comes up to you offering *** for sale? Now I know why that rule is in place

What other city would have to stipulate those rules on their library? What a town...

University of Louisville hopefully can get there act together and played like they did against Pitt. If they can do that and ship that male cheerleader to another sport then Cards got a good chance of Final four.

WTF!! Tough break for Louisville. Fouled on a 3 pointer in their own half, WV hits the free throws and wins the game.
