I was going to say! How about Oregon? Crazy!

I'm officially knocked out completely now too. And I'm solidly in 9th place. Hi, Sloonei! At least I beat you. :p

Wow, how about South Carolina in the Final Four? Crazy.

It's also Gonzaga's first Final Four appearance ever (I believe), and they are definitely the favorite to win it out of the four teams left, but they're still a solid group of teams left.

Pretty cool stuff.

I was thinking North Carolina would be the favorite at this point, but we'll see I guess.

I'm surprised I somehow managed second place right now. My bracket is a bloodbath. :eek:

I would have thought that too, but 538 which aggregates various statistics thinks otherwise. They actually give the UNC-Oregon match a 52%/48% probability, which is nearly an exactly even match. Crazy.

In a North Carolina/Gonzaga matchup, I'd give UNC the edge.

But yes, I agree that Gonzaga has an easier path to the Championship game than UNC, and therefore a higher chance of winning it all.

I don't know basketball (like at all) but that seemed like a very sloppy second half to me. I didn't watch the first half but there were a lot of fouls and missed shots in the second. Am I crazy or just ignorant to the ways of basketball?

Yeah, I didn't watch it, but it sounded like it sucked.

Sloppy basketball is the most entertaining basketball (except for fouling slowing down the pace).

Yeah, the fouling would have gotten on my nerves, but at least it wasn't a blowout or anything.
