The Stinque Braquet 2021

We doing this? Really?

We’re all for a Return to Normalcy, and sure, millions of Americans are getting injected with spytech nanobots by the day, but we thought the party doesn’t start until this summer when the Roaring Twenties come back, or, to use a more personal reference, the Disco Seventies.

Just you wait. You’re thinking Flappers, but our bet’s on Toga Parties.

Whatever your garb, we invite you once again to suffer the Stinque Braquet, hosted as in the Beforetimes by Braquet Dowager Mellbell.

In the spirit of bipartisanship — okay, fine, the spite of dunking — we will again Name & Shame the Daily Losers, because we can only stand so much happiness around here.


We’ve all already won with Duke not in this dance.

A lot of chalk in the Stinque Braquet this year.

Everyone is on Gonzaga except David (who has Baylor) and Faith (who is the only one to pick a National Champion that is not a #1 seed, picking #2 seed Houston).

I just thought I should point out that the very first game of the bracket has been completed, with Florida defeating Virginia Tech in OT, and with one game in the books – I am already a loser.

At least I have good company with MellBell and Lefty, all taking our first trip to the basement of shame.

@Discordian: Might need all 280 characters if this keeps up.

this is just a feeling, but I’m beginning to think the Big 10 conference is not as good as some of us were led to believe.

@Discordian: Well, between Ohio State and Purdue going tits up in the first round, my bracket is busted.

I strangely (and correctly) picked Oregon State to pull off an upset given the usual underestimating of the Pac-12.

The Ducks winning by forfeit delights this Eugene native, double-grad, and former alumni lackey.

I don’t know whether Loyola is the best coached team in the tournament or if Illinois is the worst. Regardless, here we go again.

Well! That was weird. Haven’t had a database crash in, like, forever.

@nojo: Doesn’t help when Some Geek neglects to update the database-reboot script.

@nojo: I suspect the AI running your database had Illinois and Ohio State in it’s Final Four.
