  1. For the sake of your enjoyment. Here are my picks for the day. If others want to post for my enjoyment, that would be great!

    Birmingham-Southern, Emory, Berry and Hendrix

    Calvin, Stevens Point, Dominican, Carthage

    Whitewater, St. Ben, Hope, Eau Claire

    Picks for the final 8: Wittenberg, Clarkson, Emory, Whitewater, Calvin, Chris Newport, WUSTL, Babson (really hate WUSTL being in the west and Babson could lose their first round game)

    Finals: Emory over Calvin

  2. For your entertainment only, DIIIFan.
    Today’s winners: Emory; BSC; Hendrix; Berry; IWU; Carthage; UWSP; Calvin; Bethel; Gustavus; Wartburg; UWW.

    Final 8: Witt; Springfield; Emory; UWW; Bowdoin; UTD; CNU; UWSP.

    Many people have the UAA with at least two teams in Grand Rapids, but I have two mighty New England teams (and two WIAC teams).

    Final: Emory over whomever.

  6. Is that the same “Somebody” that didn’t pick the Royals to be in the field? ;-)

  7. Somebody is an idiot. Somebody should have projected Bethel and Case instead of Tufts and East Texas Baptist. Somebody admits that freely.

    Somebody also thought Hope would be a good matchup for Bethel. But it can’t be stressed enough – somebody is an idiot.

  8. Funny.

    Well, the king is dead. Great job to Bethel. I’m impressed with their blocking. Very nice.

  10. Nice effort by the 8 seed Greenville. Just too many errors.

  11. Emory’s biggest challenges are staying awake against this group and getting past the debilitating effects of their 70 mile overland trek to the host site.

  12. Apparently Emory fell asleep.
