Welp, with the tournament only two days away, I figured I would go ahead and create a group.  Feel free to add friends or just yourself.  It is for fun (maybe myself or jeremy or somebody else will come up with a prize at the end) and if you play you also get a chance at the yahoo prize if you get a perfect bracket (fat chance).  Here is the info.

Welcome to Tournament Pick'em!

You created a group called Upcomingdiscs.com CBB Pick'em and added your bracket, Bracket One. Your group ID# is 139862 and your password is: upcoming

haha, don't worry about it, just give it a shot.  I've seen maybe 4 college games this year, i'm even tempted to get my g/f to do a bracket for the heck of it.  There are 65 teams and anybody who claims to be a pro at this is full of it.  Very little skill and a whole lot of luck.

Come on people, today is the last day (probably can do it tomorrow morning, but still), give it a shot.  It's free and we might even come up with something if enough people join.  So far, the only people in there are me, my g/f, my best friend and another close friend of mine.  (If my dad would read his email, that would be 5 Cheesy).

Just for the record, you all suck Grin.  The league is composed of me, my g/f, my best friend, my dad and another close friend.  That's it *laugh*.  I'll probably still finish last.  Oyie, anyway; I made the team public, maybe I'll get a few stragglers this morning before tip off.

Actually, somehow as of the beginning of today; I am in first place.  Now whether it stays like that is another thing as at points during the first and second round I was also last.  It's a short group, just me, my g/f, my dad, my best friend and another friend; but it's interesting to see.  As usual I don't see how anybody is able to pick correctly each year to each year but I seem to be doing okay right now.   

Edit: Standings after first two rounds

Rank Bracket Points Correct Picks Possible Pts
1 Bracket One *  Michael D 44 32 of 48 156
2 THE ONE!!!  brent4826 42 32 of 48 158
3 Sabertoothtigers  merrittfd 41 31 of 48 153
4 Stuff  Sarah Ruby 40 32 of 48 148
5 139862  Gary W 31 27 of 48 75

very freaking close.

Welp here we go...here are the standings and the situation (at least how I have it figured)

Rank Bracket Points Correct Picks Possible Pts
1 Sabertoothtigers  merrittfd 85 39 of 60 149
2 Stuff  Sarah Ruby 84 40 of 60 148
3 THE ONE!!!  brent4826 78 39 of 60 94
4 Bracket One *  Michael D 72 37 of 60 136
5 139862  Gary W 47 30 of 60 47

Okay, yes I am 4th.  I still actually have a chance to win.

1)My dad, he can win if it is North Carolina & Memphis in the final & NC wins.
2)My girlfriend can win if its North Carolina & UCLA in the final & NC Wins
3)My good friend Brent can win if Kansas makes the final and wins.
4)I can win if Kansas & Memphis are in the finals and Memphis wins. 

I'd say I have the third best scenario.  My dad and g/f are about equal in best possibility as UCLA and Memphis are evenly matched.  We shall see, but it's nice to 4 of the 5 teams still have a chance even by final four time.

Edit: Based on what actually happened, I miscalculated the third one & fourth one.    So I WIN!

Welp, after Memphis beat UCLA and Kansas upset North Carolina; I am sitting in first position; all by myself. (I'm quite amazed actually)  Even if I lose tonight, I still end up with the most points in the little 5 man raid because I'm the only one who picked the final matchup 100%.  On a whole, I'm actually in the 85th percentile right now.  With a memphis win tonight that could bumped up to I would guess around 92ish which is pretty awesome.  A loss would probably set me back to about 80.  Not bad, not bad.

It's that time again.  Anybody want to start up a league this time, I will join for sure.  I say this even though I did well last year, this year I stand little chance.  I just finished my bracket, hand written style and haha, yeah it's gotten very little chance of being right. 

Right now I have my final four as Louisville, Memphis, Villanova, and Syracuse with Louisville taking it all.

Changed up my pics once I put it in print, but I probably still won't get anything  Grin

For anybody else who wants to join, either ask for an invite or take it upon yourself to join.  I will make it public tomorrow evening, for now it's private.

BTW, it's at Yahoo, but you probably figured that out.
