I’m “Watching from the Sidelines.” Had to change my nickname on Yahoo since I am in another bracket pool with my future coworkers. pale

With GU's loss, I am eliminated from the competition. FTP.com, Watching from the Sidelines, and Going on a Run look to be the remaining contenders.

I'm 9 points down, but you're saying there's a chance. I haven't had a chance to check the scenario generator, but I'm sure I need all remaining games to go my way in order to win.

Pretty impressive that fireterryporter.com has led for most of the tournament and is clearly the overwhelming favorite at this point.

Congratulations to Fireterryporter.com on the win. Picking 3 out of the final 4 will win pretty much every year. I'd have to check, but this might have been the biggest run away win we've had.

Pretty good. 49 correct picks out of 60, and three of the Final Four; missed on Auburn.

The overall Yahoo leader has 55 out of 60 correct picks, with 14 of the Sweet 16, and perfect Elite 8 and Final Four predictions. Crazy.

FTP.com is ranked #1,156 overall on Yahoo, which doesn't sound all that impressive until you see there are more than 3 million brackets. My math is a bit hazy (hooray English majors!), but I believe that is well above the 99.9th percentile. Not too shabby.

If Virginia beats MSU in the final, I would imagine FTP's bracket will end up in the top 500 or so - maybe even better depending on what the other brackets have.

MSU didn't come through for FTP, so he's now at 3,292 in the country. Still at 99.9% if you round it though. I guess I will be rooting for Virginia in the final since nobody in our group has Texas Tech in the final.

Virginia tried to lose it in regulation (that time out call could have been as costly as Chris Weber's), but managed to find the win in OT. FTP finished 2,153 in the country, back into the top 99.9%. Nice job Wood.

Lowest over/under line ever for championship game. Highest scoring championship game since 2000. So much for taking the under. Embarassed
