What: NCAA tournament on the Internet

Call it information overload. Just about anything you want to know about the NCAA tournament can be found on the Internet.

Go to http://www.sandbox.com and you can find Bob Knight's bracket. He has Stanford defeating Florida in the national championship game. He has UCLA making it to the third round and USC losing in the first round to Oklahoma State.

Go to http://www.finalfour.com and you can find George Raveling's views on the tournament and James Worthy chronicling his tournament memories. Raveling likes Stanford because "the Cardinal won't have to leave the state of California until the Final Four." Stanford opens at San Diego and the West Regional finals are at the Pond of Anaheim.

At http://www.espn.com, Dan Patrick has Stanford losing to St. Joseph's in the second round. "I have been on the St. Joe's bandwagon for a while," Patrick writes. "Freshman Jameer Nelson is one of the best point guards in the country. And Phil Martelli is a good, underrated coach. Stanford just seems a bit slow and methodical for a No. 1 seed."

At http://www.foxsports.com, Michael Lazarus offers tips on how to win an office pool, and Randy Hill's offbeat column points out that although office pools are illegal, police only go after bookies.

If the game you want to see is not telecast, there's always http://www.finalfour.com, which will offer live Webcasts. Don't expect good quality, though. There will also be live radio calls through http://www.yahoo.com and http://www.cbssportsline.com.
