It is based on the field of 64 games, thus the 4 early games DO NOT COUNT. Thus, depending on what teams are put in the early games, it might be advisable not to fill out the brackets until the 4 games that DO NOT COUNT in this bracket are completed, unless it is just 4 16 seed games, then it really doesn't matter. If it is 12 and 13 seed teams, waiting might be beneficial and then I don't have anyone bitching about their Final Four team being knocked out before the tourney even begins because they didn't change the pick.

I am in, and people here should know that this is on Yahoo's Tournament Pick Em 11. Can't wait to be on the lower end of the spectrum when I have Duke and UNLV in the championship game.

Ladies and gentlemen, the following public service message is brought to you by your friends from D-Generation X, who would like to remind each and every one of you that if you're not down with that, we've got two words for you...

Holy Goddess, some of the decisions made by the committee on the back end of the field are utterly awful. Everyone on ESPN's Bracketology are ripping the UAB and VCU inclusions, but I'd also point to Georgia as a #10 and Illinois as a #9 (as much as I like the Illini, they probably should be playing in Dayton this week, and I don't think Georgia should be in the field at all). Colorado got screwed, Virginia Tech got denied AGAIN (but they're used to that by now), and I really think Harvard deserved a longer look as an at-large with that RPI and the top-50 wins they have on their record.

While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.

Alabama and Colorado both have more reason to gripe than Virginia Tech who IMHO had no business being in the field.

Clemson probably shouldn't be in the field either since their biggest win was against Virginia Tech. Georgia being included at all, let alone as a 10-seed, while Alabama sits at home is a joke. Florida being a 2-seed while Kentucky is a 4 is beyond baffling. Committee on the take?

You should try being a Kentucky fan who eats, sleeps, and breathes it 365 days a year. UK didn't deserve a 2, but they did deserve a 3. UF didn't deserve a 2, probably a 4.

Quite a few horrible seeding decisions and some omissions from the tournament completely - Alabama must believe that beating Georgia twice and winning 12 SEC games didn't mean a thing.

1. Will they become the "New York" Nets like they used to be or become the "Brooklyn" Nets. IMO, they should go with the former. Don't know. I'm partial to "Brooklyn Nets" myself if only for the novelty. 2.
