  10. nasty31

    nasty31 Savant (250) Indiana May 5, 2010

    9 seed 2nd round ko
  11. 11th seed
    Sweeeet 16
  12. 5 seed. Out first round. (Those 5-12 matchups are killer for the "favorite")
  13. Can I switch my pick? I saw someone already has what I originally selected.
    My new guess is 5 seed. Out in the 2nd round(round of 32)
  14. I'll take the 10 seed out in the Elite Eight

    Really, as much as the new distinction irritates me, it should be First Four, 2nd round, 3rd round, Sweet 16...
  15. I guess I gotta go with 11th seed elite 8 (though I think they will be a 9-10).

    PS fellow Illini graduate here, just graduated in last may... still looking for work!!!

    Class of 2000 here. Congrats on your graduation!!! Pretty sad...doesn't look like the job market has changed in 13 years. It was tough getting a job directly out of school back then too. Wish you all the best in your job search.

    Shit, after reading over what I just wrote, I can't believe it's been 13 years already

    I wasted money on a Bachelors degree in English...at 31yrs old I just graduated nursing school and became an Rn! Got my license Monday, start work next Monday. Feel blessed!!!
  19. Ill change mine 12 seed out in the second round
  20. 11th seed, second round. Thanks for the chance!
  21. I'll go with:

    7th Seed
    Elite 8

    Good Luck to everyone.
  22. Most viable options are taken at this point so I'll give it a shot at 7th seed out in third round (Sweet Sixteen). Thanks, good luck to all!

    Second round.

    If that's taken, fill me in for 16th and national championship. :D
  27. Well good win today for the Illini (kinda) but I think anything 10 and over is most likely out at this point and could get down to 7 or below with a win tomorrow.

    edit: think it was taken. Re-looking now

    How about 5th and sweet 16?

    edit: Damn, that was taken too.

    How about 4th and sweet 16? <-final guess

    Spreadsheet updated to highlight potential winners, looks like they have the 7 seed and a tough route to the Sweet Sixteen!
  36. Sweet! Go Ilini in the first round! Shit the bed in 2nd!
  37. I'm thinking I've got this one wrapped up, at least for all of my brackets sake. i have Miami going deep in all of them.

    Looks like ficklenicholas is the winner! Shoot me your address in a BM, I'll have the box out today or tomorrow!
  39. So Ficklennicholas, how did you get in contact with those refs at the end of the game. :mad: Obviously kidding an enjoy the beer, but what a horrible end to an enjoyable game and season.
  40. I am part of far reaching NCAA point shaving scandal. The fix was in on this one early.... ;)

    Its sucks that the game ended that way. I coached high school basketball for years. I have seen far to many games end with a referee's call that left a sour taste in my mouth. It is what it is, but it sucks to be on the wrong end of that type of situation.

    I am super excited to try the beer. A store out here had Bolt Cutter, but they wanted $35 a bottle which i refused to pay, so I didn't think i would have a chance to ever try it.
