  • March Madness 2009

    It's started. I've got Louisville over UNC in the final in my......bracket....

  • #2

            He makes it sound pretty exciting. And yeah, all the excitement does sound a bit like the World Cup with similar nerds trying to predict who'll qualify from the group stages etc.

            I've never got into basketball - prob 'cos i'm only 5'6". :lol:

              My knee-jerk every time I hear it is, "Cool, Dirty Harry."

                guy told me this in a bar last night (he's usually good on trivia, so I assume it's true):

                When the tournament started there were 4 states that had never played in the tournament. One of them is playing this year. Which is that, and which 3 are still left out?

                  Alaska, Hawaii, Rhode Island?

                  North Dakota for the first time.

                  Off the top of my head and going for obvious answers...

                    During March Madness, Corporate America pretends to carry on. During the Word Cup, in the rest of the world, there is no sham attempt to pretend anything will get accomplished.

                      Providence never made it? That would surprise me. I think Maine and Delaware are more likely answers.

                        Any math gurus out there can tell me how many total different bracket sheets could be used? Only counting 64 teams. I came up with a total of 2,305,843,009,213,693,952. Is that the correct number?

                          Providence has certainly made it, as has URI. I would guess South Dakota. Their state schools just recently became DI (same as ND). Delaware had some decent teams when Notre Dame coach Mike Brey was there - think they made a tourney or two.

                            yes, North Dakota was the first timer.

                            Of the other three, you got one.

                              That's true - the last but one place I worked our boss saw sense and just gave in and booked half a restaurant/bar for us for all the England matches.
