    Thanks, good sir. I had to struggle to come up with an original formulation from my other brackets, but lo and behold, Duke and three 6 seeds. A devil of a bracket, you might say. :D

    Buffalo, Nova and Iowa State? I have Nova and Iowa State going far as well (though not quite that far). 

  • KingHippo_fka_BJD95KingHippo_fka_BJD95 Posts: 2,052PFN Referee
    yup. Nova ended up making it in lots of mine, I always get burned riding the Cyclones wave, and I think Buffalo is actually pretty good.

    The Marquette/Murray State matchup is racking my brain.

    Same here.  Feel I should pick Murray State, but having a hard time pulling the trigger.  As I write this, maybe it's memories of 88 coming back.

    Thanks for joining in guys.  When I really take my time and read the info on the teams I seem to always come up with Duke.  My hate for UNC makes me want to pick them out early but as much as I hate it, they're probably going to the final four.  Still benefiting from decades of cheating.

    Go alphabetical.. I won a pool the year Arizona won the Natty by picking games that way.

    3 brackets.  One each for Duke, UNC, and UVA.

    So between Bennett and Barnes, one of them doesn't have to underachieve this year, right???
  • KingHippo_fka_BJD95KingHippo_fka_BJD95 Posts: 2,052PFN Referee
    The hard thing is figuring out the "pot odds"/game theory angle. I have Duke winning or making the final almost every time, just have to hope enough U*NC fans can't bear to pick them. I don't see a bonkers champion out there to win with.

    Possibility of a Duke x UNC Final?!?  How many of yall picked it happening?

    I couldn’t bring myself to do it, but admit it is a likely scenario.
  • WolfWiz11WolfWiz11 Posts: 160
    I chose Dook in one, MSU in another. I just can't bring myself to choose UNX. I would rather die. Which is saying a lot because they always have a cakewalk region. And lo and behold, both Kansas and Kentucky haven't been their usual dominant selves this year.

    I have Sparty bouncing Duke.

    I did it.. it was sickening

    If that actually comes to pass can you imagine the drooling media hype.. Dickie V probably would throw himself down a flight of stairs for that.

    I'm in 4th place after day #1!  Woo!

    Do some of yall have multiple brackets in there lol??
  • KingHippo_fka_BJD95KingHippo_fka_BJD95 Posts: 2,052PFN Referee
    #1, bitches!! My best entry is 2nd in the office pool, even. I honestly didn't think I was doing well, but I did always have UC-Irvine and Minny-SEW-ta

    I mean . . . it said the limit was 25! and you gotta have an upset bracket  :D

    Here is the question. Do you dislike people who submit multiple entries or is that ok with you? I enter the office pool every year and others. I only submit one per contest.

    Can’t stand the family of 5 with 10 entries.  Have some confidence

    Well, my office pool is $10 per bracket, so I only submitted one. But I'm in a few friendly brackets and they allowed multiple entries and most ppl submitted two. So, I guess it's different folks, different strokes. But, if the person who created the pool didn't want that, they would have limited it, right? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
