I had U-M beating Louisville in the finals.
or it didnt happen!
I bow to you
Yep. I'm no. 2 right now in the mgb pool...Not a big deal
great minds think alike
Sitting at around 21000th place on cbssports, though.
Yep, me too:
Can't believe it's worked out so far!
...both had Michigan winning the championship. If (when!) Michigan wins, my nine year old daughter will come in 3rd in a 250-person pool. She also had MSU and Ohio losing in the round of 64. "I could never root for them, daddy!"
3rd place in the pool but first in our hearts!
I had Michigan beating Duke.
My girlfriends daughter actually has Louisville beating Michigan
Would have loved to beat Coach K.
My bracket was horrible and after two rounds thought i was toast. But somehow I caught fire and a few upsets right and got the title game right and when the good guys win tomorrow night ill have pulled off the improbable comeback to win my work bracket challenge.
I'm in 5th out of 212 right now. I had Florida beating Michigan. Had I picked us instead of Indiana coming out of the right side of the bracket, I'd have likely locked up the win by now. In the eternal words of Limp Bizkit, you gotta have faith.
(How many people did I piss off with that last line?)
I had them beating Duke for the Title as well.
I have Michigan beating ohio as well
But I like what actually happened a lot better
Only made one bracket. Michigan over OSU in the finals, but I had Louisville going down to OSU in the FF.
99th percentile. Yes I am bragging.
I am 99th on yahoo, as well. I have us beating Louisville.
I had Indiana over Louisville in one bracket, and Michigan ove Ole Miss (lol) in the mgoblog one. I don't have a prayer of winning, but I really don't care anymore!
Also, which one of you is savage2931?!
but get this: I joined in on a bracket to my MSU friends and have Michigan over Louisville. So, in that one, I'm doing quite well.
Wow, haven't checked my bracket for awhile and it jumped form 50th percentile to 98.6%.
Michigan over Louisville in the final.
I had Michigan over Louisville in the final, which is why I'm 99.2 percentile on ESPN. Ranked 65,000 out of 8 million ploys brackets. Go Blue!
I'm doing pretty well http://games.espn.go.com/tournament-challenge-bracket/en/entry?entryID=4999095
Changed my brackets name after I found out I somehow picked Pitt to make the Final Four.
Actually had an all B1G final four, that didn't really work out though.
I have Louisville beating UM. Here's to hoping I am wrong.
I'm ashamed to say that I've never been happier to have my bracket busted. I had us in the Final Four, but losing to Indiana.
Both of them I have Louisville beating Michigan in the final. I picked Louisville for two reasons. First, if Louisville won it all, and there was pretty good chance of this before the tournament, then I could still possibly win my pool. If Michigan wins, then I don't care because we won the national championship, and I could care less about some bracket.
how many minds think the same here.... I had UM over OSU in the final. Need Michigan to beat Louisville to win my pool (and to experince extreme endorphin release).
I had Duke over Indiana, with Kansas State (derp) and Georgetown (double derp) as my other FF teams. I had Michigan losing to the Hoyas in the Elite Eight.
I picked Michigan to win in my bracket at work. Stupidly, I invited my roommate in that same bracket and he also picked Michigan to win (we were the only two). Sadly he made a lot of other better picks and will win first and I will take second after we prevail tomorrow
My first bracket created and only 1 out of 2 on espn. Second bracket was just a fun and wacky one. Its ranked 1,990 with 1210 points. Michigan winning it all!!!
I picked Louisville vs Michigan and I picked Michgian to win it all!!
|Winning Score||68||64||Losing Score|
Interestingly my "fantasy" bracket has done much, much better. I had Michigan over Ohio in the title game. My gut feeling bracket has tanked. I had Miami over Duke in that bracket.
I felt I had to pick them to win it all in my pool. I wouldn't have been able to live with my self if we won it all and I didn't pick them. Now it comes down to me and the only guy to pick Louisville, winner takes all.
If they are a reasonable, ie 4 or better seed, I always pick them (also did last year...). Hence I'm currently in first place. I already hedged a UL victory so I get 600 if mich wins and 400 if UL wins
I had Michigan beating Louisville. 76-67.
I'm in 7,000,000th.
Unfortunately I did not get much of anything else right. I felt great going into the sweet sixteen until Syracuse and Witchita State busted my bracket. I figured in a year when nobody was dominant, go with the most talented team and my maize&blue tinted glasses made UM an easy pick. I don't take filling out a bracket too seriously so I was taking the best Michigan team I can remember no matter what. I liked us against pressure then and I still do now. Even though their physicality makes me nervous.
in my coin flipping bracket. Almost couldn't believe it when it actually picked Michigan to win it
I had three brackets. One had Michigan over Louisville, one had Michigan over MSU, one had Michigan over OSU.
Had UM beating Louisville in one and UM beating Ohio in the other. 2nd one is buddy's out of state, so I am only one with UM in 100 person pool!
I picked Michigan beating Louisville for the championship.
I've never picked Michigan to win it all, even in the Fab Five and late 80's years. Never. It was just to jinxy. But as I filled out my bracket this year, I kept penciling in Michigan each round and saying "what the hell". Sometimes heroball really works in the tourney (Danny Manning, Kemba Walker, etc., etc.), so I kept thinking Burke will put us on his shoulders and carry us to the promised land. Michigan over KU was my toughest choice, but kept the faith and completed the bracket.
Burke only had to heroball us once (KU), so my prediction for Michigan's pathway to the championship game was kinda wrong. But I'm OK with that.
Michigan over Ohio State. National Champs. That's what I picked.
Michigan beating Louisville... (x2)
I am in several pools, and my ESPN bracket is decimated, but in one of the work pools (in the pool with our regional engineering group), I did have Louisville-Michigan with Michigan as the National Champion. I could not be happier, of course, that this may come to pass tomorrow, but that bracket is current in a rather distant 5th in the pool thanks to the West Region Tire Fire.
Only in one pool... Have Michigan winning it all but they were playing Duke in final game
But I had Michigan over Duke in the final. Of course, Michigan was my only final four team to make it through, so my bracket is still a mess.
Have them winning against Ohio as well. If Wichita state had pulled the upset I was guaranteed 3rd (2,000$) with the potential to win (12,000$). Now the only way I win money is Michigan winning it all which gives me first in my father in law's work bracket for 280.
2700 brackets, pays out top 20 people, 10$ buy in. A friend from undergrads buddy runs it, has been for at least 8 years that I know of.
Have M over L'ville. In 1st place in one and 36th in the Mgoblog pool. Cannot wait for 9pm tomorrow. Go Blue!
Had a pretty good bracket except for the West...
Fuck the West. Had 3 of 4 Final Four teams and the Championship game
Doesn't it just feel great when you see you're in teh 100th perceintile hahah
I had Michigan beating ohio with Duke and Indiana losing the final four
Michigan over Louisville. Don't ask me about the other two regions.
My Final Four was UM, UL, Miami and Ohio State. I have Michigan beating Louisville with a tie breaker of 71-67. Outside of the West Region I really didn't do that bad. Ranked 35,811 overall in ESPN and in the Mgoblog group tied for 21st which is like 8th. I'm pretty proud of my brackets this year and this team for finally making me not look so crazy for them to win the title every year!
I had the homiest homer bracket but I really thought it would work out with 3-4 Big ten teams in the final four.
I had a final four of Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and Duke, with Michigan beating Ohio for the national championship.
I have 3 brackets there. My first entry I have Louisville-Michigan. Good guys win it all of course. My other 2 final four teams were K-state and Indiana. Who cares now. GO BLUE from Tampa!!! Oh yeah my wife is a gator. Last sunday was fun for me.
