I got 2 out of 4 Final Four teams, which isn't too bad this year. However, I sucked so bad early on (and my champion is gone) that the best I can do is 15th now.

If WVU beats Duke, I'm out. But if Duke beats WVU and then loses, I'm either 2nd or 3rd. If Duke wins all, so do I!

...4thHorseman: everyone's left side bracket is messed up. Nice picks for real. I played the same bracket on ESPN that I played here, and it's in the top 97% out of ~5 million (170,000th). Yours would be even higher!

So I got to root for Duke to win...so they can lose. Preferably losing to Butler :D

But regardless of how it turns out, want to wish the best of luck to all still in it. Just a few games left.

Absolutely. Wow, what garbage. He calls WVU both a cinderella and an "upstart Big East team." WTF? They've been highly ranked all season AND won the Big East tournament.

He also calls Mich St. a cinderella and a "faithful sidekick team." They are a little beat up, but hell, they've go the Final Four 50% of the time since 1999.

And all along we have been saying how this tournament has been one of the greatest, even though our brackets are all up in flames.

You get 16 pts. for each semifinal win and 32 pts. for picking the championship winner.

I guess my Michigan State pick looks a little more realistic today than at the start of the tourney. I've known all along that if MSU wins, I win. Let's hope Summers, Lucious, Green, Roe, Morgan, and Allen can pull it out this time without Carolina in their way. :bouncy:

I thought Lucious was totally out? Maybe he can push them over the top with encouraging words ;)

No, you're thinking of starting point guard Kalin Lucas who is a different person from backup Korie Lucious. It is somewhat confusing though.

Duke's only up by one in the championship game right now, so either of these outcomes are possible:

Duke wins:
1. funkflexmctough
2. Danimal
3. MusashiX4

Butler wins:
1. 4thHorseman
2. funkflexmctough
3. IceHogs27

Just looking at the scores, it seems like this is the worst set of brackets we've ever had, though it's been a great tournament in spite of that.

You read it. You can't unread it.

Looks like I have a chance, but Duke has been stomping everyone in the tournament so far.

Good picks Funkflexmctough. Hope you know what game you want in mind :D

Man, that ending was the slowest heartbeat. Butler was sooooo close to winning that game, but I'm glad Duke won because that means I win (3rd place of course)!

Well, in the end I'm out $20 bucks from my tourney pool and I will make a CAG happy with my Saint's Row 2. Great game to end a great tournament. It sucks that they are going to expand the tournament to 96 teams.

So close to coming out on top. Won the pool at work, but lost this here by 3 pts. Damn Butler.

Congrats to the winners! looking forward to this next year...though I don't know how it will work with 96 teams....
