Well, it's not a banner year for the ACC. UNC is the only team left, following everyone else getting upset this weekend. Even in the NIT, only Georgia Tech remains. The rest of the ACC is home.

In our game, BayAreaHokie joins BigDave and Riverguy in a three-way tie for first, but there are still 8 people who are no more than one round three game out of first place.

Awesome Guy, HokieFanDC, Elberto, and USN are eliminated from possibly reaching first place, as they each have at least one person they cannot possibly catch. Everyone else still has a path to victory of some sort.

(+3) 1. BayAreaHokie (43) - Duke over Kansas, FSU and UCLA (3 Elite Eight alive)
(==) 1. BigDave (43) - Kansas over Villanova, Gonzaga and UCLA (5 Elite Eight alive)
(==) 1. Riverguy (43) - Loserville over Arizona, Duke and UCLA (5 Elite Eight alive)
(-1) 4. WestEndHokie (42) - UNC over Gonzaga, Duke and Kansas (5)
(+4) 5. Jason / IP Law Hokie (41) - UNC over Arizona, Villanova and Kansas (5)
(-1) 5. Rich / Valencia (41) - Duke over Kansas, Arizona and UCLA (4)
(-1) 7. NolanVT (40) - Arizona over Loserville, Villanova and UCLA (4)
(+1) 7. UpstateSCHokie (40) - UNC over Arizona, Duke, and Kansas (5)
(+4) 9. Tony / RWNJ (39) - Duke over UNC, Kansas and Gonzaga (6)
(-4) 10. Hephaestus / Major Kong (38) - Arizona over UNC, Duke and Kansas (6)
(-2) 11. Awesome Guy (37) - Virginia Tech over Cincinnati, Kansas and Notre Dame (2)
(==) 12. HokieFanDC (36) - Duke over UCLA, Loserville and Gonzaga (3)
(-4) 13. Robert / Elberto (35) - Duke over UCLA, Kansas and FSU (3)
(==) 14. Allah / USN (22) - Duke over UCLA, WVU and Michigan St[/quote] (2)

I bet it is mathematically nearly impossible for me to beat you Dave, as we both have my UCLA and UNC in the final four, yet you have 5 left of your Elite 8 and I have 3.

Dang it.

Yahoo has a scenario generator at https://tournament.fantasysports.yahoo. ... r?tid=&gid where you can see who would win. There are still 64 cases, so I'm not doing everything ... but here are some of the scenarios if all of the favorites win their Sweet 16 games:

UNC, Kansas, Gonzaga, Baylor final four (all favorites):
Baylor wins ==> RWNJ
Kansas over Baylor ==> BigDave
Kansas over Gonzaga ==> BigDave and WestEndHokie tie
Anyone else ==> WestEndHokie

Kentucky beats UNC, otherwise favorites:
Kansas wins ==> BigDave
Baylor over Kansas ==> BigDave
Baylor over Kentucky ==> RWNJ
Gonzaga wins ==> WestEndHokie
Kentucky over Baylor ==> WestEndHokie
Kentucky over Gonzaga ==> RWNJ

Anyway ... there are far too many scenarios to map all of them out, but have fun if you would like. Here is my prediction:

BG - BFF is going to win. Whoever that team is, is lucky to have BG as a BFF.

Well, Arizona's loss to Xavier took out a lot of people last night. I believe that there are only five UWSers with a path forward now.

(+2) 2. WestEndHokie (48) - UNC over Gonzaga, Duke and Kansas
(+7) 2. Tony / RWNJ (48) - Duke over UNC, Kansas and Gonzaga
(+6) 4. Hephaestus / Major Kong (47) - Arizona over UNC, Duke and Kansas
(-4) 5. BayAreaHokie (46) - Duke over Kansas, FSU and UNC
(-4) 5. Riverguy (46) - Loserville over Arizona, Duke and UCLA
(-2) 7. Jason / IP Law Hokie (44) - UNC over Arizona, Villanova and Kansas
(-2) 7. Rich / Valencia (44) - Duke over Kansas, Arizona and UCLA
(-2) 9. NolanVT (43) - Arizona over Loserville, Villanova and UCLA
(-2) 9. UpstateSCHokie (43) - UNC over Arizona, Duke, and Kansas
(==) 11. Awesome Guy (40) - Virginia Tech over Cincinnati, Kansas and Notre Dame
(==) 12. HokieFanDC (39) - Duke over UCLA, Loserville and Gonzaga
(==) 13. Robert / Elberto (38) - Duke over UCLA, Kansas and FSU
(==) 14. Allah / USN (22) - Duke over UCLA, WVU and Michigan St

I would like to say I'm sorry, but they hosed me too. Listened to too much of the local hype.

The prize is huge, and awesome, but BigDave won't let prize winners divulge the actual prize, lest you have it taken away!





Screw it, I'll tell. It's a lifetime subscription to uwsboard.com!!!!
