I have watched a grand total of 2 minutes of college basketball this season. So this means I should win, right?

I'm guessing obnoxious bragging rights for the next year.

I'm in, thanks for starting this!

I like pools, so I entered for fun. I can't believe my office doesn't have a pool going. This is the first place I've worked at in years that doesn't have one.

The funny thing is that I don't even follow the sport and I'll probably complain about the TV coverage until it's over.

I missed the pool, but ....

I almost think watching too much college ball is a disadvantage in these things. Too much information and over thinking and all.

That and you end up going against programs you don't like.

If you're already doomed (or if you just like picking things), I've started a Second Chance Bracket group.

Use this link to sign up, or group id 9895 and password crz.

Did anyone NOT pick Kentucky in our pool? I thought I would pass someone with the final - nope. 10th and last. Damn.

The top-14 in the end all had Kentucky winning, and six of us had them beating Kansas in the final.

As someone who has never watched a game of University basketball in my life, I'm pretty happy with fifth place.

OHHH! I got 10th. Ok.

It was showing the top 10 and I thought I had last place, I didn't realize I was only 10th.

I looked at the full results.

Thanks! I feel dumb now.

Which is probably why I haven't watched a game all year, yet picked both the final four, the finals match up, and the winner, AND won our bracket. But I promise I won't brag too much about it.


BTW, I won the other bracket challenge I was in as well. Just goes to show, dumb luck will pay off occasionally.
