March Madness NCAA Basketball (2018-2019) Basketball

Discussion in 'Sports Forum' started by Jason Tate, Mar 18, 2019.

  1. Here's the official thread for March Madness and the NCAA Basketball tourney for 2018-2019.

    If you would like to join the official Chorus bracket challenge group, you can do that right here. The winner of the challenge will be gifted a full year of supporter status here on the website for free. Free Dark Mode is totally worth playing for.

    A printable bracket can be found here.

    Times for the games can be found here.

    Everyone try and let cool heads prevail in the end during tight games. I know it's always going to be chaos and tempers can fly, so, let's remember we're all fans of basketball and to have a good time. (Unless you cheer for North Carolina.)

  2. March is crazy, and anything can happen, but I like Duke's chances this year. A elite 8 or final four feels at least a coin flip away, and I'm excited.

    ready for my bracket to get crushed, but i feel like I've got like 50% chance my winner is right. Go Duke.

    Last year I heard some dude in February say “Michigan’s going to the final 4” and I rode that to like a 98th percentile bracket so I need a new nugget of insider info this year bc I haven’t followed at all.

    It's an Albany Expression Prestigious

    Duke is the best team in the country.... but can be beaten by a few teams. The issue is that those other teams could fall elsewhere.

    I hate picking the overwhelming pick but it's almost impossible to pick against duke

    Honestly, though, I'm staring at my brackets right now and I'm doubting myself about the plausibility of Cuse vs Vermont in the Sweet 16. All my other regions are pretty by the book, I think, and then my West region is total chaos.
  12. I picked Cuse to win their first game B-)B-)B-)B-) just for you bud

    @Jason Tate, how badly do you want a Duke/UNC matchup in the national title game?
  14. Very little because I want to actually survive and not die and I want UNC to lose very early. :crylaugh:

    Filling out tons of brackets and can't help but pick Duke in most of them. They have a super easy road to the elite 8.

    One year I got really sick during championship weekend so I basically spent the whole weekend watching all the games and I ended up getting 2nd place in the absolutepunk bracket as a result. I’m hoping for a similar result this year.

    I've got Gonzaga winning this bad boy because I love Mark Few. I have the winner of Belmont/Temple knocking off Maryland, I have Buffalo in the Sweet Sixteen and Murray State knocking off Marquette.
