I don't know whether to feel gravely embarrassed or oddly amused.

I'll go with the latter, I spent 2 mins filling out my bracket.

I think this year if you're doing badly you probably actually follow college basketball and if you're doing well you're probably Bill Walton.

RE: CSN bracket group- who will be the best of all of us?
I'm currently 2nd of 134 in a pool I join annually, 34 correct picks 9/16 in the sweet 16. The first two rounds are 2 pts and 4 pts each plus the seed of the team that wins so it rewards upset picks. Only problem is I picked Illinois to win it all, that's my only Elite 8 team out as of now though. I'm going to need Sister Jean and the Ramblers to go all the way or someone else no one picked. Honestly though, it's likely to be Gonzaga and I don't know that I can get a big enough lead to have someone else win the final.

There was a Youtube video on the person who had the longest-running perfect bracket in history. It lasted until Game 2 of the Sweet 16 I believe.

And that person still finished behind 240,000+ people. Which goes to show it’s really all about picking the champion and Final 4.

well, I'm glad I set up the pool better than I picked the pool.

If I'm not in last place, I'm surely in strong contention for that honor, LOL.

I'm twerking all over you guys, but I won't win the league unless Baylor takes the title.

So, oliveandblue is leading by a substantial 100 points in our pool, but the fat lady hasn't sung yet. Here are some outcomes that lead to other Bracket Champions:

Oliveandblue selected Baylor as champion. If instead Gonzaga beats Baylor, boscatar is our champion. If, by a fluke, Baylor defeats UCLA in the Final, BobRiggs (who picked Texas to lose in the final) is our champion.

If Houston upsets Baylor in the semifinal, slhnavy (who picked Gonzaga to go all the way) grabs at least a share of our championship regardless of the Title outcome. If, however, a program other than Gonzaga wins it all, slhnavy must share the title with our current leader, Oliveandblue.

I picked Gonzaga over Baylor in the final (which two ahead of me also picked). The best I can do is 3rd place.

Joy-kill. LOL

I’m tied for 2nd place and leading amongst those who picked Gonzaga to win it all. But I’m boxed out of potential ultimate glory.

With a pedestrian first weekend, I thought I would need all four Final Four picks to make it, and that FSU loss dashed my hopes. Pleasantly surprised there's still a path.

Hum, I'm tied for 5th. I think the best I can do is 3rd if Gonzaga wins out, as two ahead of me have Baylor.

My bracket is a disaster, I'm shocked I'm as high up the standings as I am.

It looks like I will finish 3rd or 6th. Pretty good for not following basketball and believing the Big Ten hype. As they say, it’s mostly about picking the right final four.

I won't finish at the bottom, but close if Gonzaga wins. 7 posters with Gonzaga winning it all would pass me


If Baylor wins, Oliveandblue is the champ
If Gonzaga wins, boscatar is the winner by 10 points over johnintx

I spent about five. It was a disaster.

Congratulations, oliveandblue.

That's some P6-level picking.

"After just the first day of games, only 0.000005% of brackets remained perfect."

"Only 0.0134% of brackets had the correct Final Four."

I'll let someone else do the "1-in-XXXXXX" math.
