Of this set of Picks anyway!

Congratulations to Furry Felines on First Place!

Congratulations to Rorschach on Second Place!

Congratulations to Indian Empire on Third Place!

 

Way to go to Auburn and Texas Tech for making it to the Final Four for the first time.  And the both of them, along with Michigan State for disrupting everyone's brackets so badly that our little tourney is over.  And finally, congratulations to Virginia for upholding what it means to be a #1 Seed.  Cheers!

 

Until March Madness 2020 peeps!

Round Two - Done!

The Results are in

March Madness is far from decided with The Power of Three playing havoc with everyone's bracket! The Elite Eight are all seeded #3. How bizarre. Currently, Furry_Felines has a tenuous hold on first place with a 29% chance of winning, Rorschach is threatening in second place with a 28% chance and Boozylvania is still in the running at third with a 15% chance of winning, followed by one bracket of Indian_Empire with an 11% shot and yours truly, NewTexas, with a faint 4% chance of winning it all. All the first place contenders are second place contenders as well with the addition of IE's other bracket. Same goes for third place, but with Gig_Em_Aggies in for an 8% chance at third. Everybody else can tear up their brackets now. Sorry Studly_Penguins, Trecdom, Terropo and Turbeaux of Forest. It has been a brutal March for many. Onto the Final Four!

Round One - Done!

The Results are in

March Madness was pretty mad or maddening in the Round One for the nine Texas brackets and two Forest nations participating!  There were five RL Texas teams going in and there are three coming out of some furious b-ball.  Houston, Texas Tech, and Baylor are still representing.  Currently in sole possession of first place, with an outstanding 24 of 32 correct picks, is the ancient nation of Rorschach! One of the two Indian Empire brackets is tied for second with one of Turbeaux's two brackets. Trecdom is holding down sole possession of fourth place.  This is where it gets complicated.  We have a four-way tie for fifth place with Meowser of Furry Felines, Lt. Gov Hiram of Studly Penguins, Chief Justice D R Pepper of Gig Em Aggies and a friend from Forest's nation, Terropo, all pulling in 21 of 32 correct picks.  Ninth place is another set of multiples with NewTexasBoozylvania, and Turbeaux of Forest's other bracket.  Sweeping the gutter in unlucky 13th place is another of Indian Empire's science experiment brackets.  Go back to what you know IE. 

There were some major upsets in the first round with one #4 seed out and all #8 seeds out in an odd turn of events.  No #1, #2 or #3 seeds are out yet.  None of those losses were bracket-busters. 

Onto Round Two!
