Sorry it took so long to post these…  Remember, you can pick the games even if they are already in progress.  I will use my judgment to determine if you will get the consensus picks or your actual picks for any games in progress.  Now, for the fun part…

I have listed two sets of games below (A & B).  Select and rank the games as you normally would.  Then decide which set of games you are more confident in.  You will DOUBLE your score for the set of your choice (just let me know which set of games you choose)…

Today is sooo messed up. All we needed was OSU to lose but like is common they get a 1 score win or pull away in the last minute.

Ok, so I had the vague feeling that I didn't pick for today - and indeed, I have not.  I was too tired last night, I forgot! 

It seems that my forgetfulness might have saved me from losing some points today.  Crazy!

Lobos Win!!!!

I told you all the Pit would have something special for BYU and you all doubted. Never pick against the Lobos at home (and conversely never pick them on the road).Wink

Even with that game I'm still way in the negatives on Group A so far, I imagine a lot of people are going to be in the negatives after that result.

I hope you all enjoy watching the defending champ seal his bid to the B.I.T. As it turns out, Villanova is forcing me to double down on the amount of beer I drink today.  I hope some my other favorite teams do better (Arizona, Arkansas, Cincinnati, Kansas, Mississippi, etc.) later tonight...
