In which I layeth the smack down
I just wanted to point out that I'm currently 18-2 (And leading the SABG bracket and 547th out of all the NYTimes people). I picked Texas, who lost, and I picked against LSU mainly just to annoy Michael if they lost. And for the haters out there, I picked W. Kentucky to beat Illonois (a 12 vs 5 upset), Michigan to beat Clemson (10 v 7), A&M (9 v 8), Maryland over Cali (10 v 7). My vastly scientific formula was to pick against schools that have traditionally sucked. (Maryland sucks, too, in the ACC grand hierarchy, but any ACC team must be odds on favorite to beat California). I think I spent 10 minutes on my bracket. I didn't even bother looking at the scoring rules. Dennis is 2nd (currently ranked 11,500-ish). (To be fair to Dennis, he picked more upsets than I did). Still, none of us went crazy ... (Although many of you picked BYU, since both A&M and BYU violate the "traditionally sucky" rule, that was basically a coin toss). Lots of people just getting the 8/9 or 10/7s wrong, and maybe missing the odd upset.
Still, I'm going to lord it over you while I can. I may even watch a game, starting next weekend.
And Obama, I'm destroying him.
