Kansas wins it all, or gets to the final 4 and UNC loses tomorrow, I'm sunk.

It will probably come down to the final game. If all the number ones win this weekend Straight Talk will be in the lead. If Oregon and UVA lose you will be ahead. If either of you lose your champ you are probably done. It may be possible for someone else to sneak in as these last games are worth a lot but I think it is down to you two.

Marty - Straight Chalk is what Brant throws in to make the selection committee look good and the rest of us look bad.

But if Kansas wins, Marty wins the pool.  Mighty Marty will have bragging rights for the year.

Look like you have it. Congrats.

Not quite.  UNC needs to win at least tomorrow.

Are you sure? I don't think anyone can catch you. Nobody had UVA, Villanova or Oklahoma in the finals.

Its down to 40 cent, OJs Dad and Me.

40 cent and OJs Dad both picked Villanova and Oklahoma to make it to the final 4.  Congrats to both of you on your forecasting.
Each picked a different team to make it to the finals.  UNC has got to make it to the final four and the finals for me to keep my lead.

If Carolina can make it to the final four it has been a great season.  They would have won the ACC regular season and the ACC Tournament.  They would have made it to the final 4 which is awesome most every year.

And Dook sucked.  Even better, the Dook coach rat-boy was caught lying in a national press conference being a jerk.  Rat boy also did not discipline a player caught multiple times intentionally tripping an opponent.  The same player refused to shake hands with the star player of Oregon after the game.  Nice to know that evil dookies remain evil dookies.

UNC wins today and I'm content.  UNC wins it all my wife and I are very, very happy.

You are right about 40 cent. You are only 30 point up on him. He could still win even if NC wins today. If Villanova wins and gets to the final game then NC needs get there too for you to win.

OJ can't catch you even if NC loses today. The most he can gain on you is 160 points. He could finish 2nd though.

If I get all remaining points that I can, the max point that will have is 700. Airboy and C40 are already over 700.

It makes sense. Other than Michigan State, which everyone had winning at least 2, the 1 and 2 advanced far. Given the high value of the later games I am not surprised.

You get 160 for the next round and you have a potential winner there. I think it is possible for you to squeak into 2nd if everything falls right.

And its down to me and 40 cent.  UNC beats Syracuse and I'm triumphant!

In the office pool, I'm a dead man walking despite being in 2nd place with 2 final four teams right.  One of my colleagues picked the entire final 4 right.  He is in the top 1.5% of all brackets - and he picked UNC to win.  Only two people are still alive at the office.  The guy in first and another buddy who picked Villanova to win it all.
