I don't quite get how to read the scoreboard. Anyone know why I have a dash in the "1st 4"? (OH -- maybe they're all the #1 seeds so they didn't play to win, they just were there automatically?)

@sozobe,
You got a dash in the "1st 4" because you didn't guess correctly any of the first 4 games (at the top of the bracket), soz. (I guessed correctly on 2 of them.)

Like you, I also had Vandy getting to the Sweet 16. Embarrassed

@Ticomaya,
Thank you!

Looks like you and I are tied so far with 13 pts each and Tsar's in the lead with 14.

OSU game today at 4:30, I'm excited.

I'm following via the NYTimes. I could post my picks here, I did pm them to the Tsar, but it makes more sense to do it when we get into later rounds.

Since I was too late to post picks on the March Madness site even though signed in and pre any games (what's with that?), I can't really see what is going on. Oh, wait, that's not true, I should double check.
Anyway, I wonder if the bracket scoring is similar on different sites, or.. not. Sounds like it is, since I'm at 110 at NYT.

@ossobuco,
Some brackets didn't lock out choices until after the "Round 1" first 4 games, and some did.

@tsarstepan,
I'm not sure why I now have two entries. Weird.

My worst loss was St. Johns, those bastards!

Sozobe? You're fairing rather well.

@tsarstepan,
This Pitt/Butler game is a tad too close for my taste.

66 to 65 with less then 3 minutes on the clock.

@tsarstepan,
Pitt has to win or my bracket is demolished. 9.9 seconds on the clock. Pitt shot clock violation. Butler has the ball. Pitt up by a single point.

@tsarstepan,
This is a crazy ending to the game. .8 seconds, Pitt just fouled Butler, game tied, and Butler shooting 2.

They shouldn't have fouled on the rebounder after the missed free throw.

I thought the OSU loss would send me tumbling in the standings, I'm still first BUT I only have 8 possible points remaining and Tico has 56 possible points remaining. So I'm most likely about to tank. Ah well.

Go (female) Buckeyes!

djjd62 TOTAL POINTS 28 REMAINING POINTS 56 OVERALL RANK 200620 OVERALL PERCENTILE 37

not bad for using a ridiculous system of choosing my picks (shortest name as appearing on the bracket, in case of a same letter length name, chose team by first letter reverse alphabetical)

right now i'm down to VCU to win it all

by the by, anyone know what VCU stands for

@Ticomaya,
KU forgot how to shoot the ball ... VCU wins ... soz wins.

Sorry 'bout KU, Tico.

@tsarstepan,
Even after the uncontested 3 pointer by Kentucky, it's not enough. The Huskies are going to the 2011 NCAA Championship to confront Butler.
