Sorry your second bracket didn't make it in, gherkin. I assure you, I didn't ban you. Maybe a technical glitch?

My Country Roads bracket is toast for the obvious reason. WVU couldn't get the three point shot off to tie as time expired last night. :nooo:

At least Fairmont State has a chance at the Division 2 title tomorrow. They're even the #1 seed.

My coworker Erik was commenting that he caught some of FSU's semifinal game last night, and he said they use the same press defense that WVU uses.

I had forgotten that one, but it took me only half a moment to remember the punch line. :mrgreen:

sorry...forgot to provide this after last night's games ... based on what i've seen so far, i'm going to go ahead and predict the winner of the kansas / carolina game will be the next national champ... so in other words, the real vegas or the real gherkin will reign supreme this year ... that's my story and i'm sticking to it :wink: :wave

Second chance standings going into tonight:

deMontfortdevotee "go blue" 6-2 240 pts
deMontfortdevotee "WolverineFan" 5-3 200
faithfulservant "hook 'em" 5-3 200
Speed Racer 4-4 160
gherkin 4-4 160
faithfulservant "hornsfan4ever" 3-5 120
Speed Racer "Country Roads" 3-5 120

deMontfortdevotee picked Michigan to win it all in both of his brackets, though, so he's set for a fall.

NW Missouri State defeated Fairmont State for the Division II championship this afternoon, 71-61. It wasn't close - NW MO controlled the tempo for the entire game, and FSU never got closer than 8 points down in the second half.

Fairmont State had averaged something like 95 points per game on the season; this was their lowest points output all year.

NW MO also won the Division II football championship a couple of months ago, so they become the first Division II school to win both in the same academic year.

How crazy is it that Oregon won the very first Final Four back in 1939, and this is their first time back in it since then?

They basically went both of my parents' entire lifetimes without appearing in a Final Four. OK, my dad was gestating in the womb (first trimester) when they won in '39, but close enough.

Second chance standings after the Elite 8

columns are sweet 16 record, elite 8 record, overall record, points, (ppr)

deMontfortdevotee "go blue" 6-2 2-2 8-4 400 points (0 PPR remaining)
deMontfortdevotee "WolverineFan" 5-3 2-2 7-5 360 (160)
gherkin 4-4 2-2 6-6 320 (480)
Speed Racer 4-4 1-3 5-7 240 (480)
faithfulservant "hornsfan4ever" 3-5 1-3 4-8 200 (160)
faithfulservant "hook 'em" 5-3 0-4 5-7 200 (0)
Speed Racer "Country Roads" 3-5 0-4 3-9 120 (0)

deMontfortdevotee picked two teams correctly in the final four in his "go blue" bracket -- Gonzaga and UNC -- but he picked both to lose in the national semifinal, which is why he has 0 PPR remaining.

None of us picked Oregon or South Carolina.

It will likely come down to me and gherkin. He picked UNC to win it all, and I picked Gonzaga (in my Speed Racer entry).

Since my first days participating in pools, I have thought that PPR is the only reasonable means of giving scores.
