... WV and Auburn would each put me up on about 1/2 the folks.
Only 7 of us picked NV over Cincy as I did in my best Villanova > Gonzaga
bracket. Could be my death knell.
Go Maryland BC vs. Kansas State, of course, though the pool is nearly unaffected either way.
Otherwise, we're all overwhelmingly going with the favorites.
Purdue helped 3 brackets a little, 6 folks didn't pick it and I have it advancing further in my Villanova > Gonzaga
bracket and another one.
#11 Syracuse is playing out of their heads! Thanks to the pundits saying that it didn't even deserve a play-in game, I didn't pick it to win any games in any brackets. Only 1 player picked it to make the Sweet 16. The Michigan State loss helps me - 48 folks picked it to win the next game while I only did so in my almost certainly failed Michigan > Purdue
bracket. Plus, I'm thrilled that the school that abetted the sexual abuse of hundreds of gymnast girls lost.
Wow. #7 Texas A&M destroyed #2 North Carolina. Poor O Really and k9nanny. Doesn't hurt me, only 1 player picked Texas A&M and I only picked North Carolina to win 1 more game in 1 bracket. Go Michigan > Texas A&M!
Holy crap! #7 Nevada was down 22 with 10 minutes left, got the winning basket with 9 seconds leaf vs. #2 Cincinnati. Greatest comeback or 2nd greatest in MM history! Only 7 of us picked it. It's great for my Villanova > Gonzaga
bracket, now 9th, will be bad for my worse off Cincinnati > KS
bracket. Not sure about the others, everyone got hurt. I think I heard that this is the 1st time that all 4 top seeds have been knocked out of a regional Sweet 16. KY is a #5.
This already has to be a historic day.
Ut-oh, WTF is going on with Auburn? How did it only score 19 and get 24 down in the 1st half?
Edit: How humiliating, sorry billy.pilgrim. Knocks me back to 19th, but I'm only 4 points - one Sweet 16 game - out of the lead.
Too bad about UMBC, but they scrapped until the end. Just 2 picked Kansas State.
What a day, #9 Florida St. edges out #1 Xavier. Just the 3rd(?) time that 2 #1s miss the Sweet 16. Only one player picked Florida St. Only hurts my Cincinnati > KS
bracket, but any day that Florida St. wins sucks.
WV kicked ass, cool.
The leader has 45 points.
Barack Obama: Michigan State > VA
, Villanova & UNC
losing in the Final 4. 36 points, tied for 8th.
40 points, tied for 11th.
***** Picks by Seeds ***** has 37 points, tied for 40th. Not a good year for seeds.
As with everyone else in the country except for diehard KY fans, The South Regional is shot for me.
Villanova > Gonzaga
, Duke and VA
losing in the Final 4 - 13/16 , lost 1 Sweet 16.
24/32, have lost 2 Sweet 16s, an Elite 8 and a Final 4.
Me and *****Barack Obama *****, tied for 8th.
I'm now at 34 points, tied for 34th.
40 points, tied for 11th with Barack Obama . 28 of us picked Villanova to win. My best shot to win it all, $166, with the craziest thing being Clemson beating KS.
VA > Duke
, Michigan and Villanova losing in the Final 4 - 13/16 , lost 1 Sweet 16.
21/32 , have lost 2 Sweet 16s, an Elite 8, a Final 4, a Final 2 and the Champion.
Tied for 63rd.
31 points, tied for 74th.
35 points, tied for 69th. Best I can do is tie for 3rd, $71 or $57, would need some craziness like KS St winning it all to do that well.
Cincinnati > KS
and WV losing in the Final 4 - 12/16, same as Obama, lost 2 Sweet 16s.
22/32, have lost 3 Sweet 16s and an Elite 8.
Tied for 46th.
30 points, tied for 83rd.
34 points, tied for 80th.The West Regional is also shot for me, no more points there. Can still take 1st, would need some craziness like Florida State winning it all (horrors!) to do that well.
Michigan > Purdue
, Michigan State
losing in the Final 4 - 10/16 , lost 3 Sweet 16s and an Elite 8.
20/32 , have lost 5 Sweet 16s, 2 Elite 8s and a Final 4. Cincy beating NV is the only points I can still score in the entire South Region.
Tied for 76th.
28 points, tied for 91st.
32 points, tied for 87th. Can still take 1st, would need some craziness like Syracuse making the Final 4 to do that well.
