Well, 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:
- Jared Johnson, 130
- Sarah Otvos # (Duke), 129
- Justin Smith, 119
- Amelia Hayes # (WVU), 117
- Nina and Scout, 117
- Cameron Frye # (Duke), 116
- Amanda Brown, 115
- Nikki Jarman # (Duke), 115
- Justin Anderson, 113
- Travas Hunter, 112
Now, assuming you’ve diligently read the contest resource page, you’ll know that tonight’s championship game is worth 21 points. Moreover, you’ll know that, if Butler continues to be the bull(dog) of the ball, and beats Duke, nothing changes as far as our standings are concerned. See, for some odd reason, no one picked Butler to win it all this year, so I imagine Jared Johnson and Justin Smith will be big Bulldog fans tonight.
If, on the other hand, the Dukies win their fourth National Championship, then the Top 3 will be Sarah Otvos, Cameron Frye and Nikki Jarman, respectively. The only way we’ll have to resort to any tiebreakers is if some of the aforementioned entrants wouldn’t be able to use the Canes tickets, but hopefully it won’t come to that.
Anyway, for those of you that were at least partially in this one for pride, here’s the full standings going into the Final:
