Since I know how much DTR wants to talk about brackets . . .

Pilot nation seems to have some pretty good brackets when compared to the national average. I am currently in 21st place (just ahead of DTR) out of 24, or 12.5 percentile. Overall I am in the 44th percentile. I just thought I would point out the quality of the PN brackets when compared to the national average. It still doesn't make me feel better though.

No doubt, the PN pool is DEEP! I'm in a few other pools, where I am 2/30, 2/22 and 1/16, but here I am 6/24! Maybe PN members were less likely to buy the Big East hype and more likely to see SMC go far, I dunno.

I am never EVER good at brackets... (Probably the reason why I refuse to enter pools that cost money)

Who's in last place?

<--THIS GUY.

You're doing better than me, I'm sure. Whole left side of my bracket is toast (thanks, Butler).

The PN pool is very strong... I'm winning the other pools I'm in and am 97th percentile according to Yahoo, but I'm only i in a measly three-way tie for third in the PN pool.

The early leaders have faded away, and some of us are ready to be buried. The winner will be Wingnut, when Butler wins. However, if CBS, the refs, the NCAA, the Tri-lateral commission, the Illuminati and all the other various and sundry Duke supporters flatten the tires on the Butler bus and poison the bulldog, then Riot will steal the accolades.

I'm not gonna lie, having the players dress as stormtroopers and Coach K like this guy before the game would make me really, really happy:

I'm going to end up with 32 correct picks out of 63. Embarassed

If you flipped a coin 63 times, it's going to be heads 31.5 times on average. Maybe I should have just flipped a coin for each game?

Go Butler!

Especially if you take the "locks" such as Number 1 seeds winning the first round or Gonzaga losing in the first weekend.

Congratulations to Riot for winning this year's Pick 'Em, with a whopping 39 of 63 correct picks... but he did have Duke winning it, and WVU in the Final Four.

There is a shiny bucket of beers with your name on it in Vegas next year! drunken

With as back-arseward as things went this year, I would be a bit ashamed to have actually picked it. Wink








Okay, yeah, that didnt help me feel any better... No

You actually finished in the top half of brackets nationally. That really speaks to how strong the PN group was this year. The middle bracket in our group finished in the top 20% nationally. Very impressive. cheers


Even after writing it, I still don't feel any better either. Embarassed
