Survivor Pool

I heard about an interesting variation on the radio this morning called a Survivor Pool.

What you do is pick a team to win on each day of play. If they win, you live to pick the next day. If they lose, you’re out. You can only pick a team one time, so beware of picking the high seeds too early.

Just for the hell of it, for openers, Thursday, I’ll take Marquette over Alabama.

  1. I’m also over and out, thanks to a lucky last second three pointer lobbed up by Northwestern State when Iowa had a two point lead (although Iowa had just missed the front end of a one and one, which could have at least assured no worse than a tie, or put it away…). I heard it on AM sports radio as I drove to a meeting this afternoon.


  2. At the Sweet Sixteen point of the tourney, I have ten teams surviving, including all of my final four picks, and have 33 wins. Pretty good, but the Washington DC bracket was not good to me.
