I lost a little ground after the Michigan loss. Hats off to UCLA, as they have made their way from the First Four to the Final Four.

Update after Michigan loss:

Yahoo #97
CBS #254
ESPN #4937

Bracket update after Baylor's win in Final Four:

Yahoo Fantasy $50K Tourney Pick’Em (currently ranked #59)
CBS Sports Bracket Challenge (currently ranked #154)
ESPN Men's Tournament Challenge (currently ranked #2836 out of 16.2 million)

Assuming that Gonzaga wins tonight and Monday night, I don't expect much more gain in the rankings. I would like to break into the top 50 in the Yahoo contest, however. I'm going to be sad, when the tourney's over. I haven't gotten the excited over basketball, since Jordan's run with the Bulls in the 90s.

Those bulldogs kept me up past my bedtime, I tell ya. In theory had I done a bracket I did pick Baylor to lose to Gonzaga. In theory. In my head only.
