It's March Madness once again and I wanted to have a little fun with the tournament this time around so I set up a C&L Bracket on CBS Sports.

The first C&L NCAA TOurnament has been rocking. The Final Four starts Saturday and the matchups are:

6:07 PM ET(2) Michigan State vs. (1) Connecticut*

8:47 PM ET(3) Villanova vs. (1) North Carolina*

Coach Krzyzewski of Duke was a bit miffed that President Obama didn't have him in his final four:

"Somebody said that we're not in President Obama's Final Four," Krzyzewski said from the Blue Devils' first-round site in Greensboro, N.C. "And as much as I respect what he's doing, really, the economy is something that he should focus on, probably more than the brackets."

The coach said, in referring to the president's picks, "Why would I care about that? I love the guy, and I think he's gonna be great."

Duke is gone, Mr. sour grapes. My picks were horrible too. We have a good competition going on for the top prize: A Blu Ray player.

Here's the top ten at this point, but it's far from being over.











Mike Finnegan is representing C&L well and is tied at #12. I'm down in the bottom at # 351 and David Neiwert is # 301. We had a big turnout for the contest so next year we're going to really rock it out. Thanks for the great participation. It's good to take a breather once in a while.

Can you help us out?
