Let's go Texas Tech! Finish this thing out!

--------------------
The clouds ran away, opened up the sky
And one by one I watched every constellation die
And there I was frozen, standing in my backyard
Face to face, eye to eye, staring at the last star
I should've known, walked all the way home
To find that she wasn't here, I'm still all alone

I was feeling good about my chances of winning with Virginia vs Texas, but then I remembered that Tidu is a 1 seed, while IP is only, like, a 7.

Edit:
You finally did it, CoN. You got me watching a game and yelling at the TV. I hope you're proud of yourself.

All Florida Man did was literally just submit a bracket generated according to seed matchup records entered as probabilities into a TI-89's rand function. How the heck did Florida Man get bronze by doing this?

Last I checked I was tied for 10th place and seeing Iain above me with Virginia also as a winner, so I knew I couldn't win. I'll take 2nd! Grats, Iain!

This was a good outcome. I'm pretty sure none of you guys have ever hit the podium in this competition, and it's always fun to see new winners (at least when I have no chance of winning myself).

GMH, the reason you did so well is in that last column of (poorly-formatted, lol) scores. Every round is worth a total of 320 points in the scoring system, but that number of points is divided among all the games being played in that round. So the first round, each game is worth only 10, but the final round is worth the whole 320. Getting the champion right means that all three of you got the full 320 for that round, whereas anyone with any different champion pick would have gotten zero.

I have made myself a commitment to catching up on awards today, since I still haven't made any for last year's World Cup game. It's a drag, guys! But I'll do my best to get on it.

My auto picked bracket finished with 1220 points, the one I picked myself finished with 680.

I think I know how I'm doing this from now on. laugh.gif
