Just a reminder to bump this up. An hour or so to go before I regret my picks. So maybe Iona going to the sweet 16 wasn't a good idea...

That's correct...I'm gonna be a runner up this year...what's it to ya?  

We got a SportsCenter mention.  “A team that lost to Albany by 44”. This also made me think of the favorite statement of many “defense wins Championships”.  Garbage.  You need some D but you bett

For what it's worth, this just proved that teams like us can catch lightening in a bottle and win. This will happen for us one day.

Coach Brown was saying on twitter that UVA needed to pound the ball inside but instead they tried to beat them on the perimeter and it killed them.

I'm tied for the cellar with Popeye, but unlike him, I have the most possible points still achievable. #imcominforyall

Wow. UNC AND Cinci going down? That's a wrap for my bracket. This year has been a TOTAL toss up.

EDIT: I guess it changed again cause Bob and Click have the most possible points now.

Buffalo's coach has been there for three years.  Looks like he gets the credit for the current state of the team.

I rest my case.  The PAC12 is a garbage conference :D   Now, somebody needs to tell Walton to shut his piehole.

Anyone else have Duke winning it all, other than me?

Edit:  Looks like Bob has Duke too.   Lots of Villanova picks.  Let's go BAMA

 

Nate Oats has been at Buffalo for five years. Two years as an assistant and three as a head coach. He was Hurley's main recruiter (Bobby was the face but Oats picked the targets).

I didn't drill down into the rest of the items so I could be wrong, but basically it comes down to this:

  • If Villanova wins the national championship, then it will be a contest between PaulW and Popeye. The difference will come down to how Michigan and Duke do in the elite 8 (assuming Duke makes it). Click could squeak in for his 5peat, if Nova wins, but Kansas makes it to the final 4 instead of Duke. 
  • If Duke wins the National Championship then Brent is the likely champ, but Bob could sneak from worst to first with a Duke win and Purdue making the final 4
  • If Purdue wins the National Championship - I get this years crown. My only other path to victory is Purdue making the championship game, and even that could be effected by Popeye, as he still has Michigan going to the final. 
  • Rundex has a slim slim chance, but it would require every remaining team to lose except West Virgina, as he still has them alive, but the rest of his final four is dead and gone. 

There could be paths to other teams winning, but I have wasted enough time looking at this today :)

I think Eli is done. If Purdue and Duke both make the final 4, he jumps up, but since I have them both there as well, I think I will still be ahead of him, and others have Duke winning the chip or making the final as well that are ahead of him currently. I could be missing something though. 

What a crazy tournament!
