They figured that most football fans had cable and would watch MNF no matter what channel it was on. So they moved it to ESPN. Now, you have the same football fans watching a sport on a sports network and some of the non-football fans are now watching your other network.

That's my uneducated opinion.
Uneducated but correct in many ways MNF isn't the same I miss Hank doing his song and everything and especially now since Madden has retired it will never be the same again.

So any superbowl picks yet?

Right now I have Clevland losing a close one to the Gators oh wait Clevland is a NFL team.

On a serious note though even thou I'm not a big Bengals fan they sure are turning some heads this year. And what happened to the titans?

Bought another ring.

If I spent as much money as Steinbrenner I could win a ring too.

We interrupt this thread's trip off the first page with the following announcement:

Whoooooooooo!!

Thank you. That is all.

In my heart of hearts, I think UVM is going to beat Syracuse, and make history! Go UVM!

It's bracket time.

Unless Taylor Coppenrath has another year of eligibility that I'm not aware of, good luck!

Thoughts:
Kansas got screwed
West Virginia got screwed
Kentucky got screwed
Duke got the cakeiest bracket ever
Kansas v Kentucky would be an amazing title game

I have weird brackets this year. My 'serious' bracket has Kansas, Syracuse, Wisconsin, and Baylor in the final four, with KS winning it all. My 'longshot' bracket has Ohio St, Ks St, Kentucky, and Baylor, with Kentucky winning it all.

....man, I'm screwed, or I'm totally going to win. I attempt to predict serious upsets in the first two rounds, and it oddly has worked in the past. Honestly, I just guess. But it makes this couple of weeks interesting!

Watching Purdue's last game, I don't think it would be as much of an upset as the numbers predict. I picked Siena too, in both brackets.

Well, Siena didn't work out. I was really hoping Vermont would pull something out, but I suppose it wasn't in the stars.

I've got 25/32 on one bracket, 23/32 on the other. How are other Bracketeers doing?

My bracket is shot. Only 20/32 the first round and I had Kansas going all the way. At least now I don't have to stress about the bracket and can just enjoy the games, because I have a snowballs chance now to win my pool. Rock. Chalk. Jay. Hawk. K. Boooo!

I think a LOT of brackets took a dive yesterday, including mine. Luckily, also including everyone else's in my pool. I still have a shot. My non-KS bracket has Ohio St. and Kentucky in the championship, which is looking to be a lot more plausible with Kansas out of the picture.
