2018 March MyGolfSpy Madness

Recommended Posts

So in real college sports - you know where the players aren't paid or paid for - and do not start because I have solid insider info on it - the Lady Huskies demonstrated to Virginia how a 1 seed takes care of business.

 

Of course they have to listen to their coach because if they don't it's next woman up.

 

The insider info I have is committed n sense - woman's teams don't via payouts because there's not enough money to justify the expenditure.

 

The picture my insider paints is that if a hoops or football program has recruited a four or five star recruit they've paid someone, somewhere for the right to contact him.

 

It's pretty much the picture we saw from the FBI report. There's way more of the same out there. This was just one agency.

Today is the day my bracket falls apart. It is going to get busted too, unless a 6-seed can overtake a 3-seed.

So if all our brackets get busted together, then are they really busted?

 

Mine was in awful shape when Arizona lost but I now have new life since UVA went down too. Based on what I've been seeing on SportsCenter all year, the bracket was destined for this many upsets....it's just so darned difficult to pick which ones.

 

I saw a fun snippet on Twitter this morning: out of ESPN's 1.73 million brackets, there's exactly one that got EVERY PICK WRONG in the first round. That's practically Hall of Fame worthy. One of the funniest comments was "they were reckless enough to pick Penn over Kansas but still had Arizona winning"

That's the way I look at it. Most "upsets" will upset most people, which means most brackets are basically the same. A busted bracket only matters if you're trying to be perfect. You only have make bogey if everyone else makes double.

You also have to take into account the scoring. If it's weighted each round then it changes things dramatically. i.e. one final four pick(16 pts)=sixteen first round picks(1pt)

 

BTW- I wish the rev would stop trying to pee in my Cheerios...

The hall gave them everything they had...had a hard time with the big guy inside. But if KU hitting threes like that they can go all the way...

Good day today... I picked all of them correctly. Still half to go tomorrow, though.

CUSE!!!

 

Sure, I didn't pick them, which feels wrong, but they took out alot of brackets from contention. I've got 7/8 elite 8 teams, and my whole final four still in this thing. I'm feeling decent about my chances.

 

Edit: 6-8, damn Nevada

Yes and no... I dont care about a perfect bracket. But I have little chance of winning if a final four team goes out this early. Let alone 2 at this point lol

Lol brackets and dreams busted and I didn't even get to the 2nd week of play.

Wonder how this helps or hurts TV ratings?

I get it. I just realize there's a huge group that also are missing 2 (or more) final four teams at this point.

I'm missing both Arizona and MSU. I have Xavier in the final game and they may lose to FSU tonight.

Jesus, I thought this bracket was nearly identical to my money pool one. Turns out it isn't and I had Cincy and MSU in my final four instead of UK and Duke. Was I drunk? Well, I'm boned.

Well, I'm officially out of the running. Xavier lost, so that leaves me with 7 teams out of 16 left, neither team in the championship, and only Villanova for the Final Four.

The NCAA tournament is like the Masters. You have the right mix of underdogs and big names and leave the middle out. So there's bound to be early round upsets but in the end the names will rise to the top.

 

Duke, Kentucky and Kansas are still in, that's all CBS and the NCAA cares about. Plenty to carry the TV ratings and the upsets just create more intrigue.

 

No different from WWF only there the party company's know it's fixed. :)

 

I am enjoying it when I watch. The Gonzaga game the other night reminded me of the old Big East. I'd love to see them win it all because that's not who the NCAA would prefer.

 

To be sure I don't believe the individual games are fixed just that the system is rigged to almost insure a great leader board. Exactly like the Masters.

 

Wait doesn't CBS cover both?

FML. I pick a bracket every year and every year my wife goes in blind and beats the hell out of me.  its ridiculous.  Out of my family pool which includes my MIL I am dead last.  Kentucky is my final hope.
