I haven’t been paying close enough attention to confidently predict the outcome of most of the NCAA tourny games, but I’m willing to take a stab at picking a final four group. Anybody interested in posting their final four teams — no wager, just for grins?
For scoring, I’m thinking that you would get a point for each game your final four team wins up to reaching the FF; i.e. each pick that ends up making it to the FF would be worth four points; sixteen possible points available. If one of your teams loses before the FF, you would still get the points from their wins (if they had any…)
Submit your picks as comments, and I’ll update this entry with the standings as we move “up the ladder.”
FF PICKS AFTER Final Game:
Marc: 14 points
Duke – UCLA – UConn – Villanova
Dr. B: 8 points
BC – Duke – Kansas – UConn
Eric: 6 points
Duke – Gonzaga – UNC – OSU
In the unofficial brackets challengs, I score it as follows:
PLAYER/1st round/2nd round
Pick Highest Seeds Only/23/10
Eric clearly doesn’t know anything about college hoops, while Dr. B and Marc are now picking one better than they would have choosing only the highest seeds in the brackets. Congrats on E for choosing Wichita State to go Sweet 16; congrats to B for choosing UofWashington to play next weekend; OM’s best pick was WV (it must be because he’s got the hat and likes the logo…)
Marc wins running away from his fil, and has a chance for two more points if the Broons go all the way. Duke got mugged by LSU, but they knew they were in a bad neighborhood and didn’t do anything about it…UConn played like it didn’t want to win…Gonzaga didn’t show a killer instinct…Florida is on a roll.
