Saturday's Sweet 16 Games


  I'm only here a short time.  Huskyspeed is treating me like a fire hydrant.  (Embarassed)  Based on the scores after Friday, husky was already ahead and after my performance on saturday, I should be sent to Division III or doggie college.  Can you get Victoria for animal planet to train me?  (LOL) 

  I'm going to go out on a limb and say the the BIT was where I belonged and soon to be my residence again.  The Road was a fun place to visit, but they have ordainces against couches on the porch and cars on blocks, I just didn't know ....

  I will be joining a very nice class of individual, who will teach me the finer points of NCAA men's basketball and if I display the class that is required to belong, next year, I will be able to "run with the big dogs"!


Congrats Husky,  may you roll to the final four and not be hit by a car because you're in the road. 

Sorry about the Dog puns!  I couldn't heel myself!

Geo - The revised bracket is for Thursday - Saturday games because a few people didn't make their picks.  You're playing Dan instead of Fishstick.  I'll check back later or tomorrow AM to post the results.  Beer!

Saturday's Sweet 16 Games

So, here was our original bracket:

(1S) Lobofan2003 (176-92) vs. (4S) Diabetic8025 (54-37)
(2S) hoosierguy1019 (162-106) vs. (3S) huskerpower24 (131-66)

(1E) Beer (184-99) vs. (4E) Go_Xavier_56 (103-51)
(2E) dantheman4250 (187-96) vs. (3E) GoCavs33 (105-54)

(1M) Fishstick (182-94) vs. (4M) GeoMapster (120-60)
(2M) BoilerBadger (146-65) vs. (3M) s0merand0mdude (94-38)

(1W) huskyonspeed (190-89) vs. (4W) gonzagafan62 (150-80)
(2W) bkballer1129 (141-66) vs. (3W) apoloniaSeeker (121-54)

Since we announced the bracket, s0merand0mdude dropped out and Go_Xavier_56 hasn't entered picks.  As I mentioned in my “Road To The Final Beer – Sweet 16” edition:

** If a team from the National Championship bracket does NOT submit picks during the Sweet 16 a team from the BIT will be moved up based on the results from the BIT Play-In round **

With that said, two players from the BIT Play-In round have joined us in the National Championship bracket:  Badgerboy1183 & NCAABKJNKY81.  Since the top 10 seeds weren’t impacted, here’s what happened to the bottom 6:

The original order was:
11) s0merand0mdude
12) GoCavs33
13) Go_Xavier_56
14) GeoMapster
15) gonzagafan62
16) Diabetic8025

The revised order is:
11) Go Cavs33 (Moves up 1 spot to take dude’s spot.  528 regular season points)
12) GeoMapster (Moves up 2 spots to take the last automatic bid.  471 regular season points)
13) Badgerboy1183 (Moves in to the bracket based on BIT Play-In Results.  467 regular season points)
14) gonzagafan62 (Moves up 1 spot.  442 regular season points)
15) NCAABKJNKY81 (Moves in to the bracket based on BIT Play-In Results.  219 regular season points)
16) Diabetic8025 (No change. 165 regular season points)

Here is our revised bracket.

(1S) Lobofan2003 (176-92) vs. (4S) Diabetic8025 (54-37)
(2S) hoosierguy1019 (162-106) vs. (3S) huskerpower24 (131-66)

(1E) Beer (184-99) vs. (4E) Badgerboy1183 (121-61)
(2E) dantheman4250 (187-96) vs. (3E) GeoMapster (120-60)

(1M) Fishstick (182-94) vs. (4M) gonzagafan62 (150-80)
(2M) BoilerBadger (146-65) vs. (3M) GoCavs33 (105-54)

(1W) huskyonspeed (190-89) vs. (4W) NCAABKJNKY81 (74-45)
(2W) bkballer1129 (141-66) vs. (3W) apoloniaSeeker (121-54)

Please let me know if you have any questions.  Thanks for your patience and good luck to everyone!
