Alright now, here we go. Itís one of my favorite times of the year, March Madness time. I always look forward to filling out my bracket. And I always look forward to schooling the competition. Whether itís my teammates, against my friends, or online, I play to win.

But this time Iím doing something a little different. I joined up with @TheLockerRoom so you guys can take a look at how Iím doing along with other athletes and even some celebrities that posted their brackets. You think you have what it takes? Hereís your chance to find out.

So far Iím 12 for 16, not too bad Iíd say, even though I hate being less than 100 percent. As a Kansas guy, I just couldnít pick our crosstown rivals Kansas-State over Southern Miss. Iíve got to hand it to them though, they competed and came out on top.

Thatís what is so exciting about March Madness Ė anything can happen. Itís one and done, so if you have a bad night itís all over and youíre going home. Thereís neither rhyme nor reason on who wins, especially in the early rounds. Your team could have had the best season, but itís all about rhythm, flow and momentum; really who gets it going at the right time.

Who do I think is going to cut down the nets at the end of it all? Youíll have to check out my bracket to find out. But rest assured, I always feel like my alma mater KU has a good chanceÖ

Iíll be posting throughout the tournament to give you guys some insight on my picks so make sure you visit my bracket page to see how youíre doing against me and you can also see how youíre doing compared to some of your favorite stars!

Let the games begin.
