DogJS, Moderately Yello, okieboycat, and Mark in Austin correctly selected OSU as the East region winner.  Congrats to you all!

  • DogJS: 172 (Kentucky, Kansas)
  • Moderately Yello: 143 (Kansas)
  • USF Baby: 141 (Kentucky, UNC)

Enjoy your Sunday!

  3. Congrats to those who correctly chose Kentucky to win the South. It was never close, 82-70.
    Word is UNC’s Kendall Marshall will not play in this afternoon’s game against Kansas.

  4. Given how close the UNC-Kansas game was (until the end), one wonders if the outcome would have been different had Kendall Marshall of UNC played. But he didn’t, and Kansas takes the Midwest region, 80-67.

  7. Congratulations to DogJS. Being 4 for 4 in picking the Final Four, particularly THIS year, deserves some kind of special achievement award.

  8. ashot, if either Kentucky or Kansas wins in the semis DogJS wins the ATiM Rocks pool.

    BB, DogJS could possibly break into the top 1pct of all 3.17 million Yahoo brackets if Kansas beats Kentucky in the finals. I haven’t told him, or he’d be insufferable. Suffice it to say it’s a statistically unusual selection.
