Obj, all that\'s important is that you conclude that Georgia Tech will win the Final Four. 8)
I will get you the full-bracket later. For ACC part of the tournament, you can visit www.theacc.com

I wish I actually submitted my brackets... meanwhile, a lot of my predicted upsets has come true.

Uzoma, GA Tech vs Louisville, that might be GT\'s last game. They should be happy the made it this far. I know bcos you are in GT, it will definitely cloud your judgement...

Let\'s see, do we pick our finial four teams now???

On a different note? Does anyone know of a site where we can keep track of secondary school sports in naija?

Yea its alotta of Nigeria Players in sports , NBA, NFL, SOCCER etc but my question is this: What are the doing for the Nigerian community? NOTHING!!!!!!. Look at Dikembe Mutumbo, at least he is building a hospital for his pple back in Africa and a couple foreign players. They need to step up and do something for the community at least giving back and showing appreciate with all dem million dollar contract the sign. Emeka Okafor atleast should go and tarred the road to their village etc.....lol
Not to talk to the guys in soccer in foreign countries, Okocha, Kanu etc

then again, they could be doing things that are not so visible.

However, I think if some of them embacked on more visible projects that will benefit a community, state, or Nigeria as a whole, that will definitely set an example.

As predicted, today was judgement day for some. GT played hard. I also wanted Duke to go down today (there\'s always tomorrow)

@Okey, you see that\'s the problem. When you tell people to consult me for advice on how to compete, they don\'t listen :D My school thought that I was just another student and decided not to come to me for help...well, they got massacred.

Let\'s see if NFA will listen and give Nigeria a chance at making the FIFA World Cup soccer next year. :wink:

@OBJ, I hope the link I gave you was helpful i.e. www.theacc.com

Objobj, thank you. I am not even concerned at all. My buddy here at Tech slept for more than 10 hours after the loss. I asked him if he has recovered and he said \"of course\". But I had to be watchful of any weird reactions during the day  :lol:

Anyway, basketball is fun to me, but not as much as soccer. I can deal with basketball loss in just a few minutes. But with soccer/football, I think it takes a week or longer for me to fully recover from a Nigerian loss. To be frank with you, and I am not kidding, I literally got fever after Nigeria lost 0-1 to Argentina in 2002 World Cup. At that point, I knew I have a problem, but the weird thing is \"I LIKE IT :!: \" 8)
