I still don't believe it.  After 50 games, we ended with a tie in the South region!  Based on my previous posts, Lobofan2003 advances on the tiebreaker.  He’ll advance to take on hoosierguy1019 who easily scored the most points.  The East region included an embarrassing win (Beer) and the largest margin of victory by dantheman4250.  If all goes as planned, Dan should beat me by 100 points in the next round.  The Midwest had 2 easy wins with Fishstick and BoilerBadger almost doubling up their opponents.  Finally, we had the only Sweet 16 upset in the West region.  With the #1 seed and the #4 seed both posting negative points on Saturday, our BIT invitee, NCAABKJNKY81, stunned huskyonspeed.  He will advance to take on bkballer1129 in the Elite 8.

Please double check the results below and let me know if I made any mistakes.

I need it. I spend over 100 dollars on two games for my XBOX 360 on Friday (as my own personal bday present) and my XBOX just went out for the THIRD time. Man my streak of bad luck is killing me.

zags - You weren't switched out of the competition:

I've been doing this for everyone's sake since the beginning of February.  I've done everything possible to be fair to everyone who wanted to play along.  It takes me hours to keep this running and minutes for people to submit their picks.  Maybe someone else would like to volunteer to do what I've been doing.  I'm pretty disappointed / discouraged right now...

Congrats to all the winners!  However, I feel compelled to at least lodge a protest on my behalf.  I was well ahead of my opponent (gonzagafan) after 2 days, and that definitely affected my strategy.  I'm not sure it's fair to have my opponent switched at halftime, so to speak.  Anyway, thanks for running this, Beer and Dantheman, it was fun participating, and good luck to everyone still in.


Ummmmm... yeah, I will stick up for my buddy huskyonspeed, who in fact, I DID PUT IN MY PICKS!!!!

I don't see why you switched the opponent, niether. I was still in this thing, I am still wondering why you switched me out. That was not right.
