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

Post Elite Eight Bracket Contest Standings Update

March 28, 2010

1 Comment

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
  11. Robert DuPrau*: 104

NCAA Tournament Bracket Contest: 2nd Round Standings Update

March 21, 2010

Furmp Madness 2nd Round Standings Update

Betsy Eagleson still leads as we hit the break prior to the Sweet 16.  Better still, we’ve been able to confirm that Ms. Eagleson “likes blue,” and is “pretty sure a wildcat could take a jayhawk in a fight.”  Yes, while Betsy’s entry has pretty much been at the top of our contest from the first tip, it wasn’t one of the 51% of brackets that picked Kansas as this year’s NCAA Champion.  She went with Kentucky (beating Kansas in the final).  She has arguably faltered by having Kansas in the Final Four, but then so did 87% of our entries.  More after the jump.  For now, here’s the top 10:

  1. Betsy Eagleson: 80
  2. CEH, Jr.: 78
  3. Brian Krams: 77
  4. Chris Drummond: 76
  5. Ed Hightower: 76
  6. Amelia Hayes: 76
  7. Jared Johnson: 76
  8. Alex Christison: 76
  9. Robert DuPrau: 76
  10. Sarah Otvos: 75
  11. Cameron Frye (tied): 75
