Frumpzilla’s 1st Annual Bracket Contest: Final Standings

April 6, 2010

2 Comments

Holy Indianapolis! What a game that was, eh, Frumpsters? How Gordon Hayward’s last and second to last shots of the night didn’t go in, I just don’t know, because, watching them leave his hand, it seemed like an inevitable, forgone conclusion set in place many, many moons ago. Nevertheless, instead, just as Zoubek’s gargantuan foot was spared the same embarrassing Tourney fate previously cast upon the likes of Sleepy Floyd and Chris Webber, it appears Duke was destined to improve to 4-6 now in National Title games. But hey, at least Howard got that frumptastic screen in on Singler before the final buzzer sounded, right? BOOM! (still searching for video of it, btw).

The Blue Devils aren’t the only ones that need to be congratulated today, however; how about a hand for the winners of Frumpzilla’s 1st Annual NCAA Tournament Bracket Contest!  Sarah Otvos, Cameron Frye, Nikki Jarman…some great Canes tickets, Target gift cards and, of course, some Always Sunny in Philadelphia Dick Towel merchandise await you all!

Here’s how the Final Top 10 shook out.  Full standings after the jump, and many thanks to everyone for participating.  We’ll hopefully see you all (and more) next year.  Until then, keep reading, keep spreading the Frumpzilla love, and please be on the look out for a World Cup pool that may or may not materialize here on the site within the next few weeks!

  1. Sarah Otvos # (Duke): 150
  2. Cameron Frye # (Duke): 137

Bracket Contest Update: Championship Game

April 5, 2010

0 Comments

NCAA Championship: Butler vs. DukeWell, we’re down to the neety greety in our first annual bracket contest, and things are pretty much set with regards to who the possible prize winners could be.  Nice to see that no one or two entries really ran away with things, though, and, as I’m sure you recall, there’s been a lot of back and forth.

Only one person is guaranteed a win, place or show, and that’s one Ms. Sarah Otvos, so congratulations, Sarah!  You’ve got yourself some Canes tickets (assuming you can use them), at least a $50 worth of a Target gift card and, of course, some Always Sunny in Philadelphia Dick Towel gear to proudly wear around family and friends.

The other two prize slots are totally dependent on the outcome of tonight’s game, but before we get to that, here’s the Top 10:

  1. Jared Johnson, 130
  2. Sarah Otvos # (Duke), 129
  3. Justin Smith, 119
  4. Amelia Hayes # (WVU), 117
  5. Nina and Scout, 117
  6. Cameron Frye # (Duke), 116
  7. Amanda Brown, 115
  8. Nikki Jarman # (Duke), 115
  9. Justin Anderson, 113
  10. Travas Hunter, 112

Where are all the Duke haters?

March 29, 2010

Thanks to our friends at Yardbarker, and susequently Jimmy Traina’s Monday A.M. Hot Clicks, I came across this lovely video of some of the Rumors and Rants crew asking Duke fans why everyone loathes them so. The premise being, of course, that the average college basketball fan does, in fact, hate the Dukies.

Makes sense. I mean, I at least half-heartedly agree with the premise, though I’m not exactly sure why, so why not go to the source, right? Right. Well, this was all good and fine until I stumbled upon this ESPN Sportsnation Poll later in the afternoon (thanks, Dbj). More specifically the question: “Who are you rooting for to win the championship?” The results, SHOCKING…

Disaster for Brian Krams, our leader going into the Elite Eight games, as none of his three remaining Final Four picks (Kansas State, Kentucky, and Baylor) managed to stick around.  He won’t be the only disappointed entrant, of course, because the vast majority of our contest’s brackets are now mathematically different.  Before a couple more quick notes and full standings (after the jump), here’s the Top 10 11.

  1. Amelia Hayes # (WVU): 117
  2. Jared Johnson: 117
  3. Sarah Otvos # (Duke): 116
  4. Justin Anderson: 113
  5. Andy Hummel: 111
  6. Whit Rawls # (WVU): 107
  7. Janet Mullaney*: 107
  8. Billy Purdy*: 106
  9. Justin Smith: 104
  10. Nina and Scout: 104

Frumpzilla’s First Annual NCAA Tournament Bracket Pool *Prize Update*

March 17, 2010

March Madness 2010

Join Frumpzilla's March Madness 2010 Pool!

It’s that time, Frumpsters. March Frump Madness time, and what better way for you to celebrate than to enter our first annual bracket contest? Best of all, it’s entirely free to enter (seriously, there’s no catch), and you can actually win thousands of dollars* in prizes**!

All you have to do is email us to let us know you want in (that’s frumpmail@gmail.com in case the link doesn’t work for you), and we’ll send you a bracket. Send your completed entry back to us, and that’s it. If you’re savvy enough to already have access to an editable electronic bracket, you can obviously just complete it and attach it to your initial email. Tiebreaker is the total score in the championship game.

We’re using a fairly standard, balanced scoring system (2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21 for Round 1 through the Championship game, respectively), and will be posting the updated bracket and standings after each round here at the site. Once all the brackets are in, we’ll also be sending out a file that contains all the entries and their corresponding picks (just to ensure there’s no funny business).

Good luck, Frumpsters! Let us know if you have any questions, and we hope to see you in the pool!

*Taiwanese Dollars

**1st Place: $100 (U.S.) Target gift card. 2nd place: $50 Target gift card. 3rd place: $25 Target gift card. All winners will also get some ‘Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ Dick Towel apparel! Truly frumptastic.

***BIG UPDATE!!*** We’ve gotten our hands on 6 sideline premier tickets(sec. 107 row N seats 1-6) for The Carolina Hurricanes April 8th matchup vs. The Montreal Canadiens!!  The top 3 finishers that can attend the game on the 8th in Raleigh, NC will get a pair!  If you’re out of the area, we’ll just go to the next person in line. (top 3 overall still get above winnings)
