We also have 3 with no correct picks.  Woodless, fan4Life, and 7587.

Woodless has gone from being 0'fer to second place and has the most possible points remaining.

7587 is still in last place and will probably remain there Embarassed

I didn't get a chance to post while I was in sole possession of first place an hour or so ago. It didn't last long.

Not as much excitement on Day 2 (is there ever?). Halfway done, and only two upsets. #10 Miami defeated #7 USC by 2 points. And after defeating Rutgers in a play-in game, #11 Notre Dame defeated #6 Alabama (what is this, the Sugar Bowl?), 78-64.

The crazy game was Ohio St. v. Loyola Chicago (the fighting Sister Jeans). Looks like the O/U was 133.5; the teams combined for 95 points.

#13 Chattanooga lead Illinois for 39+ minutes, but missed a shot at the buzzer to lose 54-53. Shooting 7-14 on FTs including missing the front end of some 1+1s was a killer for the Mocs.

CanadaGael's sports picking history indicates this will be a short lived visit to the top.

The real question is, if BlackSheep wins, who buys the bucket at the Alligator Bar next year? I vote Deaner.

I'd suggest the bracket that finishes last, but the guy with the most likely bracket to finish last still hasn't paid me for his share of this years Vegas room charge. The roommate agreement clearly stated that he was to pay up front. Total deadbeat!

And just like that, Woodless is alone at the top after day 2.

I made one change to my bracket after spending 5 minutes to fill it out. My change was to have Marquette beat Baylor. I was half right.

Just made a deal with Woodless! Since he has the best chance of winning this thing, he must show up in Vegas to either collect his bucket of beer or buy me one.

Veges next year just got more exciting!

Aleppeik and Voltex currently tied for lead. Woodless still has most possible points. And I am no longer in last place.

I might need an explanation on how points are calculated, cause I'm not sure how I'm tied with less correct picks than the other two but more Second Round points than First Round points?

Considering I genuinely thought I wasn't going to catch up as of a few days ago, I'll take it. tongue

You get 1 point for each correct pick in the round of 64, and two points for each correct pick in the round of 32. Not sure how many points in the next rounds, but I believe it increases 1 point with each round.

In the top half of my bracket, I have every Sweet 16 team except Michigan; pretty good. In the bottom half, it is carnage. All I have left are Kansas and Purdue, and I did not pick either of them to make the Great Eight.
