Well, I've got one of the 3. USC over Texas. I definitely think we're the only 2 guys to pick them over NC though. USC is hella underrated. I can't believe they were only favored by 2 last night. Money doesn't get any easier than that.

I had GT over the badgers, and I got Maryland beating Butler. So you got me there. We have the same Championship matchup, but my homerism forced me to pick the Ducks in that one. Most the rest of our brackets look different. I think we'll both be fighting for last place in this....laugh out loud.

I have USC and Maryland as well but unfortunately I had GT beating Wisconsin :(

USC is definitely underrated. I couldnt agree with you more on the 2 point line. That was my biggest play of the day moneywise. Your probably right about the last place thing. But if USC upsets Texas then UNC that would be sick. Lets go Ducks. I kind of like how they barely got by yesterday. They were due for a let down and their let down didnt cost them the game. So I think they will go on cruise control now. Thats my opinion on how they will be playing.

Yeah, I think there are less than 20 guys that have been officially eliminated. Some notables that have been eliminated are: toonster (Duke and Georgia Tech just killed him), HChu (rode the Holy Cross bandwagon too far), ghetto (Notre Dame and VCU did him in), Windy (Illinois and George Washington in the Sweet 16), and Xiomera (Virginia and Duke losing hurt).

I have 7 of my Elite 8 left (F you, Georgia Tech...), and my entire Final 4. Unfortunately, I wasn't great on my first round picks this year, and my Final 4 is very similar to others' (Georgtown, Texas A&M, Kansas, Florida), so I won't win if I hit all of my picks. Oh well. It's all about the fun anyway.

Here mark this down:

Kansas will get all they can handle tonight with the Salukis and their pressure defense. I think Kansas wins but they'll be deep enough to pull away in the last two minutes.

Les Wexner is an Ohio State graduate, son of immigrants who lives in Columbus. He started the Limited brand (the founding company,) which includes The Limited, Victoria's Secret, Express, Bath & Body Works, etc. He currently lives in Columbus in New Albany.

I never said Victoria's Secret was created in Columbus, but the founding company in terms of benefactor was and is based here, so of course we have them.

Jbond your argument makes no sense.

Just because Wexler owns it doesn't mean they are in Columbus, even though I know they are in Columbus.

Victoria Secrets was founded in California and then sold to Wexler 5 years later, there is no certainty that he would create more stores in more towns.

Landry's restaurants owns like 30 different restaurants chains, but they are all not located in Houston(place where Landry's was founded).

I never made an argument. You said we may not have malls, I said we have the biggest mall tycoon in the nation. And I'm sure Landrys has SOME stores in Houston, just as Wexner has Limited Brand stores in the malls he has created.

They do, but that doesn't mean every store then bought/own is in Houston like you are claiming for Wexner.
