Adam Morrison

Sharing co-leader duties with Brown, Lakers newbie Adam Morrison also weighs in with 51 points thus far.

Morrison had a few first round slip-ups but nothing completely unforgiveable. He decided to shake things up with a couple early upsets like Utah St. over Marquette and Western Kentucky over Illinois. Only the latter proved true.

Morrison had Florida St. in the Sweet 16. Hmm. Perhaps he overrated them just a bit seeing as how the Seminoles were narrowly edged by Wisconsin in the first round. Going with an ACC team is sometimes the safe bet, though.

Maybe the most stunning aspect of the bracket is his UNC over Gonzaga pick in the Sweet 16. Kudos to Morrison for not succumbing to his presumed Bulldog bias. I guess I just expected it. My bad.

Morrison likes Louisville, Pittsburgh, Memphis, and UNC as the Final Four, with the Tarheels winning it all. Hey, same as Obama. Collaboration maybe?

eh, no biggie, I'm sure at least a few Zags that post here have GU losing to UNC in at least one of their brackets....

I think he did it for a no lose situation. If we win he's exstatic, if not his basketball pool looks good. We know where his heart is.

Yeah, if I had to bet big money, I'd probably go with UNC,
then I wouldn't feel completely bad if I lost the bet.

He is probably focusing on odds, not his emotions.
Like someone said, we know where his heart is.

As a person who has known Morri personally, I know there are a lot of things Adam is, and a lot of things that Adam isn't. Both publicised and unpublicized.

But there is one thing that Adam is, beyond a doubt, down to every red blood cell in his body and every remaining beta cell in his body... it's that he's a Zag fan. The guy bleeds the program along with the best of them.

Well he does have a lot of time sitting on the bench to do his bracket. Wish the Zen Master would put him in at least once a week.

I don't want to wish ill will on anyone but I think an injury here and there is the only thing that is going to get Adam in right now or if the Lakers have a 20 point lead in the 4th.

bad news is, i'm in last place in all my pools (with 1 bracket) so if the pattern holds true we're in trouble

Something tells me Adam will be very happy if his bracket blows up tomorrow night with a Zag win.

Disclaimer, the more money I put into a bracket, the more likely UNC got picked over GU. :(

Can't criticize Ammo over that pick. We all know he hopes the pick is wrong.

He did get 5 minutes in the blowout against the Thunder Tuesday.

I have the zags going all the way and I am in the lead in the office pool. Lets hope I win the whole thing.

I picked Gonzaga in every bracket I filled out. Even the $$ brackets. Maybe I'm a sucker, but I'm just not wired to do anything differently.

Maybe, but I'm hoping you don't turn out to be a sucker.

Gonzaga has "ruined" my bracket for at least the last 10 years if not more. If they lose tomorrow, they'll ruin this years bracket also.

My bracket will forever live and die with Gonzaga. And I'm fine with that.

So I guess we are not going to have Adam excommunicated from GU?

I can hardly imagine the amount of money it takes to get into an NBA team's NCAA bracket.

I've got us losing in the Elite 8, and my wife has us losing tomorrow. Hopefully them winning will ruin everything. :)
