I was happy with my performance to this point in my bracket. I had14-of-16 Sweet 16 teams. Plus, all of my Elite 8 and Final Four teams were alive. I'm still in solid shape, but thanks to Memphis' stellar performance last night against Mizzou I'm down a Final Four team. I'm more angry at myself for buying into the Memphis hype. My whole bracket basically slurps the Big East. I have Pitt, Louisville, Villanova, all advancing far. And instead of staying with my head, and going with UConn, I sold out for the small conference Memphis. I'm not sure that I can win any of brackets now because of the UConn/Memphis/Missouri event. But I can finish second. Which in our fantastic sports culture is LOSING.
