Sports: SDSU in March Madness
The San Diego State Aztecs made the tournament field of 64 by winning their conference regular season and tournament. And ended up with an 11 seed, playing Indiana. Well, they outplayed the other team except for the last couple of minutes and managed to find a way to lose. It felt like they were playing not to lose in the end, which almost always means the team will end up losing. Its too bad but won't change my life any.
I have two sets of brackets:
After day one, Bracket A has 13/16 points and is down to a potential total of 181/192. The biggest impact losses were SDSU (predicted to go to the Sweet 16) and Oklahoma (going to the round of 8.) Apparently the OK choice was foolish. And I thought SDSU could upset Indiana (and nearly did) and would upset Gonzaga (which I still suspect will lose.)
Bracket B has 12/16 points and a potential maximum of 186/192. The SDSU loss was the only game that will impact the next round. Not too surprisingly, there are quite a few people who picked all 16 games at yahoo. I'm currently ranked 49,389.
