I bet this is the longest a front-page post has gone without a comment.
Your MGoBracket victor is the elaborately misspelled entry "tickeledtodeath": he will be covered in luxurious cotton from head to waist. All hail his perspicacity, and scorn his willingness to pick Duke as national champion. It was a crazy tournament: the winner only got half of the Elite 8 and half of the final four.
Runners up in the MGoBracket contest are Nate-Dawg, phil solomon, drewg32, and MGoAero. Please email me an address and a size preference.
Fearless Leader finished a respectable 78th, if you're interested. I had Wisconsin in the final four, did get Duke in the final and had Butler as an Elite Eight team.
you're the first to point out my name is spelled wrong.
I was going to say something about my overall bracket genius and finishing fourth, but then I considered the fact that my bracket isn't exactly something I'm proud of getting in the top 5 with. Two final four teams... eh.
I won the one on facebook. Only 38 people, but hey
that I had to participate to have a chance at winning. That's just too much to ask.
The MGoBracket2 winner was SouthLoopBlue who won with only 2 of the Final Four and 3 Elite 8 teams right: Duke, West Virginia and Kentucky.
Since you were all interested in how I did, I was in the lead through the Elite 8 but got no points after that. I quickly dropped down to 46 of 90. That's what happens when you pick Kentucky to beat Syracuse.
That's a great shirt. I remember when we played OSU a year or two ago and they ran the college marketing commercials back to back.
First they showed OSU's commercial. It was just basically a bunch of still shots of OSU fans/alums/whatevers lined up in threes spelling OSU with their arms.
The Michigan commercial came on immediately afterward. I'm sure most of you have seen it. It showed the earth from space. Then slowly Apollo 15 came bending around the horizon and the Victors got louder and louder until it passed by. Then I believe a caption popped up and said "Apollo 15: all Michigan crew".
That contrast pretty much says it all.
I picked Duke to win it all which is the reason I won as most people took Kansas. Another prediction re: The Masters this weekend for those that care----Tiger Woods won't make the cut. You heard it here first. Book it.
