Quote of the day
"I think I'm just going to enjoy this today and I'll worry about Northern Iowa tomorrow morning. This is going to be the 24-hour rule. We're going to enjoy this." -- Michigan State coach Tom Izzo, after a buzzer-beating win over Maryland

Daily blurb
The sum of the seeds of the Sweet 16 teams this year is 80. There have been 25 prior NCAA tournaments with 64 teams, and the Sweet 16 seed sum has been higher than 80 four times, most recently in 2000 when the seed sum was 85. The highest seed sum was 89 in 1989. So this tournament doesnít set any records on that front Ė but itís certainly on the high side. By contrast, last yearís Sweet 16 summed to only 49, which was the lowest in history.

If your bracket got torched this weekend, its unlikely that you found much solace in your GuruGolf team. The six most widely owned golfers all missed the cut. Of the 194 teams with 4 active golfers, only three had all four make the cut, and only 21 had 3-of-4 survive. Meanwhile, 26 teams (13%) went 0-4, and 81 (41%) had only one survivor. Yikes! Kudos to go 5, one of the 4/4 teams, whose -47 was 5 strokes better than any other team. Worstball honors went to Canít slice (+41), who managed to have 3 cut survivors.

I havenít yet activated mulligan scoring for GuruGolf, as I usually wait until the Masters week to do that. But when mulligans are factored in, Iíll bet this week drops out for a lot of teams.
