Waiting on that 4th for the Final Four

Damn those Kansas Jayhawks.  That's what made me get 7 instead of 8 in the Elite 8.
And then Arizona - Arizona! - lost to Wisconsin again for a Final 4 slot.  At the time of this writing the best I can do is go 3 out of 4.

Do I despair of winning the pool?  Yes, I did begin despairing.  And then I spied Yahoo's Results Generator.

And here's what I found:  If the final 2 are Kentucky-MSU, and Kentucky wins - I win.  Doesn't matter who wins the Duke-Gonzaga game is if my final 2 are correct.

If the final two are anything other than Kentucky-MSU, I lose.
However, if the final 2 are Calipari v Izzo, it doesn't matter who wins - I win.

2:26 left Gonzaga 51 Duke 60.
1:30 left Gonzaga 52, Duke 60
0:56.4 Gonzaga fouled Duke - Duke gets both free throws.  Gonzaga 52 Duke 64
0:45 left Gonzaga 52, Duke 66
FINAL Gonzaga 52, Duke 66

And now I can state I have 3 of the Final 4.

2015 NCAA Elite Eight

I shocked myself - out of the 8 games for the Elite 8 round in the 2015 NCAA Tourney, I had 7 chances to get the winner.

And I swept the stage - 7 out of 7.  And jumped from 10th to tied for 2nd.

2015 NCAA East Sweet Sixteen

That East Bracket is holding up like a champ.  South, West, and Midwest - not so much.  (2 of 4 in each of those.)

Sunday, March 22, 2015

The EAST bracket is not busted. Yet.

Another typical March Madness bracket performance by me - I only got 6 of 8 right in the 1st round BUT I'm 2 for 2 (with 2 to be played).  And the 2 I got right?  I picked against #1 Villanova and #2 Virginia (picking NC State and Michigan St respectively).

Hopefully Rick Pitino and #4 Louisville don't let me down.  As for #3 Oklahoma v #11 Dayton - I have no idea how that game will play out.

My Final Four is Kentucky, Michigan St, Arizona, and Duke.
I have Kentucky beating Michigan St for the championship.

So now you know how it's NOT going to happen.
