Well, the past four days certainly lived up to the “Madness” legacy, didn’t they?
Indianapolis hosts Tennessee, Kentucky, Michigan, and Louisville… That’s got to be a scalper’s dream scenario, right?
Huge upsets, surprise teams moving on to the next round, and favorites being pushed to the wire across all of the regions.
And yet, there’s still that one guy who will have his final four all still alive that will want to talk about it for the next four days… man, I hate that guy. <is actually that guy>
Let’s take a quick look at our Yahoo! contest to see how
awfully amazingly each of our participants are doing thus far. Also, this will hopefully make Kevin stop emailing me to rub it in.
Yup, our graphic whiz Kevin Dearth was in first place until Sunday’s games… but today, Grant stands atop the leader board (I’m not giving you lots of money, but will buy you dinner when you’re out here next). As an interesting note- the 8 year old that won our Bowl Picks contest is only sitting four points behind the leader. So… yeah.
Charles had an amazing first round and early second round for tBBC Staff Bragging Rights, and still is on top of our insider’s bracket, even if he’s fallen behind his initial glory. Jason’s the only reason that your humble correspondent isn’t dead last… thanks, bro!
Even though the Buckeyes aren’t moving on this coming weekend, we’ll be still watching closely to see what happens next. Stay tuned to tBBC for weekend livechats and all your Scarlet and Gray updates.
Let’s be honest… you’ve already started on your excuses for next week. Thursday and Friday should absolutely be a national holiday from work, since most of us don’t get anything accomplished anyway. Ah, the beautiful Madness!
Sure, the Buckeyes have a game or four to win before Sunday’s brackets are released and the Big Dance begins… but it’s never too early to get your hilarious entry name locked and loaded for this year’s challenge!
While bragging rights are always a fantastic incentive, we’ve got a great prize package from our great sponsors, including your chance to pen a guest post here at the mothership. Heck, Ken had so much fun that he decided to stick around.
Here are the details that you need for the 2014 edition of the showdown- as a reminder, the Yahoo! Investigative team hasn’t visited Columbus since we switched over to their Fantasty services. You’re welcome, Buckeye Nation.
