NMC Bracketology Update - Final Four

Well, it happened. For the first time ever, all four No. 1 seeds made it to the Final Four. Which leads me to share with you what my new strategy will be for filling out the bracket: Pick the favorites!

I did the math this morning and found out that if someone had picked the favorites all the way through, that person would be tied with Kevin Edwards for first place right now. Then, it would just be a matter of how you pick your Final Four. This year, I think North Carolina was the overall No. 1 seed, then I'm not sure how the other three No. 1 seeds ranked.

The point is - I could have been in 1st place rather than 15th!

But, at least I'm not one of these guys who have been mathematically eliminated: Derry Prenkert, Jason Thompson, Dustin Eby and Jeff Simpson. Sorry guys -thanks for playing!

It's funny you say that Dan. I filled out a bracket for Sophie and entered it in our office pool (97 people) and our extended family pool. All I did to pick her bracket was pick the favorite in every game, just like you said. She's sitting atop both pools right now, and if North Carolina wins the championship, she will win both of them. I think I'm using that strategy from now on!
