Observations:

1) Yes, Bobby, your bracket is outstanding. Your inability to duck the generic Yahoo team-name generator is not.

2) The Redemption of Scoop is riding primarily on the success of picking FGCU in the Sweet 16. Seriously. No Joke. I know a lot of folks had them as a sexy upset vs G-Town [including FeloniousPhunk, who I am now beating]...but geez. Congrats.

3) The best score by base Yahoo value [sans seed multipliers] is 47, which is shared by several players.

4) I was seconds away from being right about Temple over IU...sigh....I guess I'll settle for top 40, I know most of us would at this point.

5) The last-place complete bracket belongs to Tom Dayton's Swag Bracket. Tom Dayton selected all chalk in the 1st round. Perhaps it was a social experiment, perhaps it was a calculated safeguard against all the inclinations of others to pick upsets. What ever it was, it stands as a testament about this year's tourney that the last-place bracket picked all the favorites. [and don't say it's because of seed multipliers, Mr. Dayton is close to dead-last in correct actual picks, too]

6) Sorry to pick on you, Tom Dayton. You just intrigue me so much.
