At least this year the Buckeyes won't go out as a 2 seed...sorry Drew...

12-4 yesterday, good enough for a (no doubt temporary) tie for first in my pool of equally clueless friends.  Unfortunately, one of the people I'm tied with is my 12 year old son, who has somehow made things tough for everyone in the pool every year since he was 6.  Luckily, he's obsessed with huskies, so he had UConn going deep.

Interesting. Which bracket is your "real" bracket. I'd have to assume that one is where you picked who would actually win, and the others were to hedge your bets. I've never filled out more than one bracket per season.

Didn't fill one out at all this year. Had too much going on. Now I'm just watching, and rooting for my favorite local team.

3 different places online. So are they all real?
I am cheap and only do the ones with free entry.
There is a local one with an entry of $100 and I did that once. Finished 1 place out of the money and that would have been 800 back. I think there was 400 people in it that year.

I probably wasn't clear. I was assuming that one of the brackets is how your really think that things are going to shake out in the end, and the other two were ones you went against your instincts because, hey why not have several options. Kind of like buying multiple lottery tickets. You wouldn't use the same numbers on all of them. I was just curious for discussion sake on which one of your 3 was your true instinct and how did that one do?

The on I took serious is the one bout 50-50.
The bad one was a big rush job. I had bout 3 minutes to get it in.
The good one I did to piss a guy off. He runs it and Iowa and Ky are his fav teams.

wife said she got a notification from ESPN's bracket site thingie:  "of approximately 17 million brackets, you are in the top 275,000 scores."

I doubt she picked the Kentucky upset but she's apparently kicking ass.  I think she had UofA (she's a Wildcat alumnus and a letterwinner at that) vs either Gonzaga or possibly UCLA.  She went either Pac 12 final or Cats/Zags, I'm just about certain.


My dumb ass had Cats VS KENTUCKY.
