Lobofan2003 Bracketology as of 3/6/11-11PM ET

Here's my bracket with most of Sunday's games having been completed.

Quite a few upsets in the conference tournaments already with Indiana State and NC-Asheville upsetting the #1 seeds in their conference in the final.

Watch out for VCU as well, they are back on the bubble with their win over George Mason in the CAA Semifinals and may very well steal a bid from somebody.

Please let me know if I missed any rematches. I was traveling today and while my plane had wifi, I had the bracket set without rematches until all the craziness of today's games.

With the suspension of Brandon Davies, BYU is out as a number 1 seed and Notre Dame takes their place.

AUTO BIDS are in CAPS and at this point are either the conference tournament winner, #1 seed in the conference tournament or the highest RPI team remaining in the conference tournament.

Winner of the East Region plays the winner of the West Region; winner of the Southeast Region plays the winner of the Southwest Region.

September...the best (sports) time of year

September is one of the greatest times of year if you're a sports fan (especially of baseball and/or football).

The baseball penant races are winding down, it looks as if most of the races have been decided although the AL Central may come down to the final week between the Tigers and the Twins. Even without many exciting races, September allows clubs to bring up young kids and get a chance for fans to see the future and for teams that will be going to the playoffs to set up their rotations and get players healthy for the playoffs.

College football is off to a fast start with a lot of exciting upsets to start the season. Boise State beat Oregon, BYU beat Oklahoma and Houston beat Oklahoma State just to name a few. The non-AQ conferences are making big strides against the AQ conferences. The perception of the Mountain West is growing off the charts after Utah's win over Alabama in the Sugar Bowl and the afore-mentioned BYU win. Is this the year that a Mountain West team can get into the BCS with one loss or even possibly get into the (Mythical) National Championship game if they go undefeated? Before we can even think about that though both Utah and BYU have tough matchups tomorrow if they are going to stay undefeated; Utah plays Oregon at Autzen Stadium and BYU plays Florida State at home in Provo. Both teams also have to play a tough TCU team later in the year in conference play. In addition the Mountain West teams, Boise State looks like they could also contend for a BCS spot; could two non-AQ teams possibly get BCS-bowl bids this year?

If the excitement of baseball and college football wasn't enough, how about the start of football season? From trying to dominate my fantasy league once again this year to watching the resurrgent Seahawks here in the Northwest there's plenty for me to watch in the NFL this season. What has you excited this season in the NFL?
