Last time Chattanooga scored, it was Tuesday.

I've got Cal -- should be a good finish to that one too -- seems like two evenly matched teams

2:45 PM

My upset specials are The Hilltoppers over Illinois, Michigan over Clemson & Miss State over Washington.

my upset specials, maryland ova cal...minn over Texas...michi over Clemson, there's others I can't reveal

catch snark fever, Mon!

Blogger michael said...

jhag:

1) Being in the group with you and now that the picks are locked, anyone who joined can you the upsets you picked.

2) In looking at your bracket, I realized you didn't pick a champion. That's even worse than Monica not filling out a bracket at all.

2:54 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

jhag- we could just look at your bracket if you did it on yahoo

2:54 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

not picking a champion is like running a marathon then quitting with a quarter mile to go cause you're thirsty

2:55 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Is the Arizona pick the one you wouldn't reveal, by the way?

2:55 PM  
Blogger michael said...

So what is the water in your metaphor, Harrison? I think it represents love.

2:56 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

HIGH FIVES!!

2:56 PM

I am disappointed in FSJ and Mon in particular for not filling out brackets.


Come on Maryland!

2:57 PM

utc scored!!

2:59 PM  
Blogger Monica said...

I did fill out a bracket.
I have 20 points so far. :-)

Monica -- wearing green is SOOO two days ago

3:00 PM  
Blogger Miller said...

I guess I have to take them from now on, Mon?

3:00 PM  
Blogger Monica said...

this is piling on!

3:00 PM  
Blogger Jet said...

Leave Monica alone, or I'm gonna put my foot in somebody's John Brown hind parts.

3:01 PM  
Blogger Miller said...

Is Maryland still winning? Or winning at all?

3:01 PM  
Blogger Monica said...

Thank you, Jet!
sheesh

3:02 PM  
Blogger Hornet said...

using John Brown as an adjective reminds me of my middle school football coach

3:02 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

you mean his John Brown-eye?

3:03 PM

Northern Iowa making it fun.

3:08 PM  
Blogger Hornet said...

D Miller - maryland up 3 at half

3:09 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Harrison - if the water represents high fives, then I don't know if I can blame jhag for picking that over picking a tourney winner. After all, high fives are awesome!

3:10 PM  
Blogger Scott M. Brannan said...

ease up guys. for goodness sakes, somebody give Mon a high five!!!!

3:10 PM

Height of stupidity ...

Agonizer promotes HABOTN and Tim Gayle's blog in the same box on the Aggravtor web site. Last post from TG ... Feb. 24. Last post from JG ... this a.m., with 200 plus comments.

3:15 PM

JZ! My HERO!! smooch

3:15 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

if you don't finish you get no high fives michael.

3:16 PM  
Blogger Jet said...

I'm crushed, Monica. Crushed. Devastated. Heartsick.

3:16 PM  
Blogger Monica said...

You were my first HERO, Jet. The first is always special.

3:17 PM  
Blogger Jet said...

(blush)

Watch that J-Z, Monica. He's a silver tongued devil.

3:18 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

Tim Gayle has GOT to have blog envy. There are crickets chirping over there.

3:19 PM  
Blogger Jet said...

I think the crickets over there have died due to malnutrition.

3:21 PM  
Blogger michael said...

I don't know who Tim Gayle is, but I won't talk trash about a guy that writes a blog that no one reads. A lot of really cool people do that!

3:21 PM  
Blogger Scott M. Brannan said...

michael, you have a fantastic blog. i don't have a t-shirt or anything, but i've been by.

3:22 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

i have boxer shorts of Michael's blog

3:23 PM  
Blogger Scott M. Brannan said...

TMI Harrison.

3:23 PM  
Blogger michael said...

If they made boxer shorts of my blog, it would probably be the kind of shorts that have the drawing of a bikini bottom so that it looks like you are wearing a thong even though you are totally covered. I have always had a great respect for the false bikini industry.

3:25 PM  
Blogger Jet said...

I understand that the State of Alabama's industrial recruiting efforts are targeting false biking companies.

3:27 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

they took bailout money

3:30 PM  
Blogger michael said...

I sure hope the false bikini industry doesn't lose too many key members. You would hate the quality of their clothes to decline.

3:30 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

i have one of them false tuxedo shirts, is that the same company?

3:31 PM  
Blogger michael said...

It's the same industry, but the false tuxedo sector is the minor leagues. Pretty much anything with a fake tie is easy to manufacture. The real artistry comes when you mimic human flesh. Not just any Joe Schmo can do that.

Some people work 30 years on fake tuxedos without ever getting a call up. But there is always that hope...

3:35 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

Do they do custom orders? I want boxers that look like I have on a very revealing loin-cloth.

3:38 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

What about the fake bodybuilder shirt? Those aren't done by amateurs

3:40 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Fake bikini and fake bodybuilding are on the same rung of the ladder. That's the top, man.

ehyou, I don't know if they do custom orders. But to paraphrase the Alabama senator, what's wrong with the boxers we got? They wear good.

3:44 PM  
Blogger Cotton said...

Ahh. My bracket is lining up perfect if it wasn't for BYU. Those Mormons are conspiring against me.

3:45 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

Michael- that is one of my favorite quotes of all time that nobody understands. It's brilliant

3:46 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

The Mormons are hurting me too.

I looked at my bracket for the first time since filling it out, I must have been real tired, I made some goofy calls. Duke is in my final four, what was I thinking.

3:47 PM  
Blogger michael said...

I know, Harrison. It's hilarious.

Looks like the Gourmet Beer bill has a good chance of making it through this time, though, despite the fact there is nothing wrong with the beers we got.

3:51 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I've got the Terps. Is that considered an upset? 8/9 games are pushes if you ask me.

3:54 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

10/7 are mild upsets at best. I think real upsets don't start until 6/11 or 5/12

3:55 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

As an aside, I don't think TG has blog envy.

He'd have to be blogging to have envy. If he blogged every day and nobody read it or commented on things, well, that might be grounds for some covetousness.

3:55 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

I hope it does Michael. I drive to Columbus, GA atleast once a month to get real beer.

3:55 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

This is a 10/7. Wow.

Still not an upset.

3:55 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Actually, 9's hold the edge historically over 8's. The motivation of being almost equal but also being lower seed apparently helps.

3:56 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

9 seeds get to play the "they don't respect us" card that athletes for some reason still respond to

3:58 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Every time my wife plays the "You don't respect me" card, I just laugh and continue to watch TV.

3:59 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

I've got the terps too. My other two upsets involve both of the Arizona teams. I have no idea on my thinking behind both of those.

My CBS just switched to the Price is Right momentarily, I was about to be really pissed.

4:01 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

why is tpir on at 4:00?

4:03 PM  
Blogger Miller said...

Did Maryland win? I had them as a mild upset.

4:04 PM  
Blogger JgobravesHAG said...

Eell of it matters I thought I ha unc in the champion box when i looked over it, for the record. Because it says champion then North Carolina underneath it:(

4:04 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

No clue Harrison, all the more reason I was upset. But it was 5, I'm in the ETZ

4:06 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

Miller, they are up 11 with 30 seconds left.

4:06 PM  
Blogger Miller said...

You think it is probably safe to pencil UConn into the next round?

4:07 PM  
Blogger michael said...

jhag - condolences on the lack of a champion. I am sorry for your loss.

4:08 PM  
Blogger AUfan said...

Jet, thanks for the info on Barber from last night, I figured I must have missed a foul. The defense was terrible, I lost count of lay-ups UTC made. Nice working in of Big Love with the hoops, I enjoy them both very much.

4:09 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

Yeah Miller, they are up by 40, its probably safe.

4:11 PM  
Blogger JgobravesHAG said...

D. Miller I say no, TX AM is gonna be a test

4:12 PM  
Blogger Miller said...

Only 40? Heck! The Mocs can still come back!

4:14 PM  
Blogger JgobravesHAG said...

Oh, I thought you meant for the 2nd round hahah my bad

4:15 PM  
Blogger Miller said...

Hag, I just meant for this game. Not the whole tourney.

4:15 PM  
Blogger JgobravesHAG said...

Anyone getting the washington, miss. state game?

4:18 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

Miller, Uconn ended up winning by 56

4:18 PM  
Blogger Miller said...

Safe to assume Maryland and UNC ended up winning their games as well?

Thanks for the updates folks!

4:22 PM  
Blogger AUfan said...

Before I forget, anyone coming to the Auburn basketball game on Friday, the ticket booth was ONLY accepting cash or check last night. I saw several people going into the arena to try and get cash from the ATM inside. Jay might be able to shed more light on this, I don't know if it is always like that or not.

4:23 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

yeah Maryland and UNC both won. Washington beating Miss st 19-14.

4:27 PM  
Blogger JgobravesHAG said...

Wakerider, you getting this game on tv man?

nope, the news is on instead. Pretty lame, I am about to head the the gym anyway.

Blogger JgobravesHAG said...

same exact here man, good stuff, working out bi's and tri's today.

4:32 PM  
Blogger Jet said...

I am, as you all realize frequently, an idiot.

I have been quoted saying that 16 Chattanooga was a decent pick for the first ever upset of a 1 vs. UConn.

I would say "Don't listen to me." You don't. So, still don't. Maybe the van will pick me up and take me back to the nursing home soon.

4:32 PM  
Blogger Miller said...

I was going to try and let that one slide, Jet. But since you brought it up.... What were you smokin' man? Pass some of that on over this way!

4:36 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Even Wizards are wrong sometimes, Jet. Don't be too hard on yourself.

4:36 PM  
Blogger Jet said...

It was 17-15 at one point. I saw Chattanooga a couple of times ... saw them beat Charleston. It looked like a team a little better than your garden variety 16.

I can't claim was smoking anything. Maybe I left the truck running in the garage, and left the side door ajar.

4:38 PM  
Blogger Jet said...

I thought he said, "Wizard."

I was mistaken.

4:41 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

wizards don't predict stuff, they turn people into animals and make things explode with their sticks. They also wear pointy hats

4:47 PM  
Blogger Jet said...

The awkward time between games ... oh, no ... The Replacements is on.

Somebody put the hoops back on.

5:19 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

Jet's afterlife is somehow going to involve The Replacements

5:22 PM

Washington pulling away, up 16 with 13 minutes left

Wartiger - I couldn't log on when I tried to a couple of times before. Today I logged in, but didn't get it finished before the games started. It's been a source of intense anxiety for your fellow Hotties today.

You're welcome to see my bracket on Facebook just to ease the pain. It ends with UNC.

5:55 PM

Monica, my ends with the Tar Holes also, even though i want Duke to win it...
I spotted everyone 32 points tho by purpousely leaving my championship game blank I figured they could all use the help. :)

JHag ...

It's all good -- after you commit to Auburn.

Your mural in Jordan-Hare ... your jersey retired in the new HABOTN Arena.

Women sprinting down College Street to buy you a lemonade (wink, wink) at Toomer's Corner.

All you gotta do is commit and sign with Auburn. It's where your heart is. Time to get your butt there.
