Ow, I think a lot of folks with UConn in the final four (and winning it all) are going to have stagnate pool points now.

Not sure, but I think wallyopd has it locked up unless UCLA wins it all.

He's hosed if LSU wins it all also. Basically:

LSU wins one game, magicmanej wins.
UCLA wins one game, loses in the final, WallyOPD wins.
UCLA wins the whole thing, wintermute wins.

In my office pool, I would have won had any of the 3 games (not counting UConn-GM) gone the other way, but I went 0-3 in those games, and lost by 2 points because everyone is done since no one in my office pool has their final four teams still in the tourney.

Wow, that means if UCLA goes all the way, I lose by 1 point. That's a long way from being in dead last after the sweet sixteen. Then again, I don't remember if I picked UCLA in this pool. Sucks being blocked at work.

One guy on Yahoo actually had George Mason in the final four. All his final four picks are there.

4 people out of 3 million + on ESPN got the F4 right. Dumb luck is all it is.

Hmmm...so I win the pool and bragging rights for a year if LSU beats UCLA and Wallyopd wins if UCLA beats LSU.

But that would mean rooting against my alma mater...



HELLS NO!

GO BRUINS!!!

congrats to wallyopd!
EDIT: oops, didn't realize the contest wasn't over yet


And to the Bruins, who will (hopefully) bring a 12th banner to Pauley Pavilion on Monday night! And a year earlier than I had hoped for...

Guys, Wally doesn't have this nearly wrapped up. As posted above, he needs Florida to win. If UCLA wins, Wintermute takes the whole thing. It's down to those two.

I don't want to have to root for the Gators. I hate UCLA but conference pride usually wins out in the tournament.
