Thanks for the info on thehousepicks, I generally use Kenpom,

Arrived back in Ohio last night after over 3 weeks in Las Vegas. I totally enjoyed the Conference and March Madness Tournament atmosphere. I will be going back next year but for a much shorter stay.

I must say my favorite place to watch the games was at the Mardi Gras Ballroom at the Orleans. Spent all 4 days of the opening round there and when you need a break from the games they have a great poker room and reasonable table game rates. They also have a good variety of places to eat, my favorite Big Al's Oyster Bar.

I also hiked Red Rock Canyon this trip which turned out to be one of the highlights of the trip. I am glad I also took a few days and went over to Goodyear Arizona for Spring Training.

I was glad I did this and I would find it hard to do this everyday as some gamblers do. It would be too much of a grind for me. It is much better gambling when you don't have to rely on it for food, shelter, etc..I really admire those who do it for a living.

I will still post my plays on the college basketball forum for the rest of the games.

GL to all the rest of the tournament

7-5 in the Sweet 16 since I have been back.

Final 4 Picks

Michigan. + 2.5. Michigan has the weapons to beat the zone.

Louisville. -10. Shockers have not seen this kind of pressure and I don't think thy have an answer or Silva and Smith.

Nice.  Wish I could get there for football season, it's a ton of fun.  Already booked for March Madness 2014, though.  Hotel partially comped, airfare already paid for.  Now it's just an 8+ month waiting game.
