March Madness - Fighting Illini - LIF

    So after winning one of the Super Bowl squares, I have way too much damn beer on my hands. First world problems, eh? So, time to make some room in my cellar with a LIF involving my favorite team and alma mater. The winner will receive:


    -Founders Bolt Cutter & glass
    -Heady Topper (one can)
    -Bligh's Barleywine (conditional on if they make it to the Sweet Sixteen)
    -King Henry (conditional on if they make it to the Final Four)

    Since they are pretty much a lock for the Dance, the first person to guess correctly by posting in this thread wins the prize. Your guess needs to include:

    -The seed the Fighting Illini are assigned in the March Madness Tournament
    -The round in which they play their last game (the round they are eliminated)

    For purposes of this LIF, the play-in games are in the first round along with the rest of the games in the field of 64. Second round is the field of 32, third round is the Sweet Sixteen, fourth round is the Elite Eight, fifth round is the Final Four, and sixth round is the Championship Game.

    So if they were to lose in the Sweet Sixteen as a 7 seed, the person who guessed the following would win:

    7 seed
    Sweet Sixteen

    Simple as that! Sorry, only open to the lower 48. Good luck and go Illini!! I-L-L!!
