I'll keep trying, but the site won't come up for me right now. That's what I get for waiting til the last minute.

Edit: Site came up, but error message when I tried to log in. I'll keep trying!

Re: 2017 DVDTalk March Madness Pool

Still no luck. Just know that I would have destroyed you all.

Noticed a FB friend complaining about the CBS site, so I guess it's not "user error".

Re: 2017 DVDTalk March Madness Pool

Villanova-Wisconsin.... what's on the line:

1 Dimitri Hajimihalis 30 29 186 58 Arizona (171) - VILLANOVA ELITE 8
2 Keith D 28 27 184 56 Duke (87) - VILLANOVA ELITE 8
2 Tabletopjoe 28 27 184 56 Kansas (143) - VILLANOVA FINAL 4
4 Joshua Hoffman 27 26 183 55 N. Carolina (178) - VILLANOVA RUNNER-UP
4 Kevin Cadigan 27 26 183 55 N. Carolina (135) - VILLANOVA RUNNER-UP
4 Michael Tenby 27 26 183 55 Kansas (153) - VILLANOVA ELITE 8
7 MrX 26 26 180 55 Duke (150) - VILLANOVA ELITE 8
8 Ken Buzzard 24 23 180 52 Gonzaga (136) - VILLANOVA FINAL 4
9 Red Dog 26 26 178 54 N. Carolina (164) - VILLANOVA FINAL 4
10 Greg Schmidt 24 24 178 52 Kentucky (126) - VILLANOVA RUNNER-UP
11 John Bryant 26 25 176 52 Gonzaga (158) - VILLANOVA FINAL 4
12 Brandon Carroll 23 23 171 49 N. Carolina (166) - VILLANOVA FINAL 4
13 Aaron Au 18 18 136 40 N. Carolina (156) - VILLANOVA FINAL 4

A Villanova win helps/hurts nobody
A Villanova loss hurts those with them in the Elite 8 the least, those with them as Runner-Up the most.

Re: 2017 DVDTalk March Madness Pool

It's still kinda early, but it's starting to look like:

If Arizona makes the finals, Dimitri vs Tabletopjoe
If Gonzaga makes the finals, Red Dog vs Ken Buzzard
If N.Carolina makes the finals and does not play Gonzaga, Joshua vs Dimitri

Re: 2017 DVDTalk March Madness Pool

Middle of Sweet 16:

Arizona's loss crushed Dimitri's chances.... he's still in first right now, but he's third from the bottom in Maximum Points. Three players have lost their National Champion, and nobody has more than 5 Elite 8 or 3 Final 4 teams left:

Re: 2017 DVDTalk March Madness Pool

We're into the Elite 8, and we now have some easy-to-figure-out elimination scenarios.

First, here are the pool standings:
RankPlayerMax_ScoreCur_ScoreWestMidwestEastSouthChampionship
1Joshua Hoffman13563GonzagaKansasxN. CarolinaN. Carolina (178) over Villanova
2Greg Schmidt13260GonzagaKansasxKentuckyKentucky (126) over Villanova

4Red Dog13050GonzagaxxN. CarolinaN. Carolina (164) over Gonzaga
5Ken Buzzard12848GonzagaxxN. CarolinaGonzaga (136) over N. Carolina
6Michael Tenby12763GonzagaKansasxxKansas (153) over Duke
6Brandon Carroll12747GonzagaxxN. CarolinaN. Carolina (166) over Gonzaga
8Tabletopjoe12056xKansasxN. CarolinaKansas (143) over Arizona
9John Bryant11054GonzagaxxxGonzaga (158) over UCLA
9Aaron Au11046xKansasxN. CarolinaN. Carolina (156) over Princeton
11Dimitri Hajimihalis9866xKansasxN. CarolinaArizona (171) over N. Carolina
12Keith D9664xKansasxN. CarolinaDuke (87) over Kansas
13MrX9058xKansasxN. CarolinaDuke (150) over N. Carolina


Here are the elimination scenarios I've figured out:

Joshua Hoffman: Eliminated if Gonzaga (Kevin Cadigan) or N. Carolina (Greg Schmidt) lose in Elite 8.
Greg Schmidt: If N. Carolina advances further, will be eliminated by Joshua Hoffman
Kevin Cadigan: If Gonzaga advances further, will be eliminated by Joshua Hoffman.
Red Dog: Wins pool if N.Carolina beats Gonzaga in Finals.
Ken Buzzard: Wins pool if Gonzaga beats N. Carolina in Finals.
Michael Tenby: Needs Kansas to win it all.
Brandon Carroll: Eliminated by Red Dog
Tabletopjoe: If N. Carolina loses to Kentucky, will be eliminated by Michael Tenby.
John Bryant: If N. Carolina advances further, will be eliminated by Ken Buzzard
Aaron Au: Eliminated by Kevin Cadigan
Dimitri Hajimihalis: Eliminated by Kevin Cadigan
Keith D: Needs Kansas to lose in Championship
MrX: Eliminated by Kevin Cadigan

I *think* these are correct. There are 7 games left, and 128 combinations to consider. It'll be easier in a day or two.

Re: 2017 DVDTalk March Madness Pool

The only scenarios where the pool ends in the Elite 8 are:

Kevin Cadigan: Xavier, Oregon + N. Carolina advance to Final Four
Greg Schmidt: Xavier, Oregon + Kentucky advance to Final Four

So, if Xavier + Oregon win, the N. Carolina/Kentucky game tomorrow will be for the pool.

Re: 2017 DVDTalk March Madness Pool

Gonzaga 83-59 Xavier

* Kevin Cadigan eliminated by Joshua Hoffman
* Tabletopjoe eliminated by Michael Tenby
* The pool cannot be won this weekend, it will be settled in Phoenix

Updated elimination scenarios:

Greg Schmidt:
Eliminated if Kentucky loses

John Bryant:
Eliminated if Kentucky loses

Joshua Hoffman:
Eliminated if N. Carolina loses

Keith D
Eliminated if Kansas or N. Carolina lose

Ken Buzzard:
Eliminated if N. Carolina loses

Michael Tenby:
Eliminated if Kansas or Kentucky lose

Red Dog:
Eliminated if Oregon or N. Carolina lose

Already Eliminated:
Aaron Au
Brandon Carroll
Dimitri Hajimihalis
Kevin Cadigan
MrX
Tabletopjoe

For Final Four weekend:

If Kansas and N. Carolina advance:
* If N. Carolina wins it all OR loses in Finals to East = Joshua Hoffman [3 scenarios out of 8]
* If Gonzaga wins it all = Ken Buzzard [2/8]
* If Kansas wins it all = Michael Tenby [2/8]
* If East beats Kansas in Finals = Keith D [1/8]
* This is the only scenario where it is known for certain that the pool will be settled by the National Championship game. In all other scenarios, a Gonzaga loss to East in the Semi-Finals will result in the pool ending before the Championship game.

If Kansas and Kentucky advance:
* If Kansas wins it all OR plays in Finals vs East = Michael Tenby [3/8]
* If Kentucky wins it all OR plays in Finals vs East = Greg Schmidt [3/8]
* If Gonzaga wins it all = John Bryant [2/8]

If Oregon and N. Carolina advance:
* If Gonzaga loses in Semi-Finals = Joshua Hoffman [4/8]
* If Gonzaga loses in Finals = Red Dog [2/8]
* If Gonzaga wins it all = Ken Buzzard [2/8]

If Oregon and Kentucky advance:
* If Gonzaga loses in Semi-Finals OR Kentucky wins it all = Greg Schmidt [5/8]
* If Gonzaga wins it all OR loses in Finals to Oregon = John Bryant [3/8]
