4/12/14 - Little Rock Office March Madness Challenge 2014 Final Results

We did in fact end in a five way tie. Something I had never imagined would happen. However, the final total score of 114 was much lower than most people predicted. The end result was the low score won. Congratulations to Jason for taking first and rights to proudly display the trophy for the next year. Levell and Stephen each will have their names immortalized on the trophy as well.

4/6/14 - LROMMC 2014: A 7 seed versus an 8 seed?

As you can imagine, no one predicted this match up in the championship game, and in fact only two people had Connecticut as far as the Final Four, and only Michael Hall had Kentucky as far as the Elite Eight. This results in a five way tie for first, second and third place. I will attempt to break down the possible scenarios in the following table. I do not guarantee accuracy as I am tired, and have no control over exactly what I put in the table.

I will do a full review of the data following the game on Monday evening.

- March Madness 2014: What an interesting match up for the title.

First and foremost, I have to apologize. Apparently, I managed to miss Levell's tie score when I created the possible scenarios spreadsheet. He has been tied, and is currently tied for 2nd/3rd place and will be in the running for those position, even though he does not appear in the scenarios spreadsheet.

Congratulations are in order, as Elizabeth 2 now has a lock on the first place title. She will officially have her name on the plaque and will be awarded first place money upon completion of the championship game.

As for who will be taken 2nd and 3rd, I have broken it down into the possible scenarios as there is a four way tie for these positions. The left column is the exact final score, the 2nd column is the 2nd place winner and the third column is the third place winner.

I make no guarantees that the following calculations are accurate. I believe they are close, but I am tired, and will do a full investigation upon completion of the game on Monday evening.

Final Score Range 2nd Place 3rd Place
<= 120 Jason Levell
121-128 Levell Jason
129-133 Levell Darren

3/30/14 - LROMMC 2014 - Final Four has been set

I have updated Google Drive with the final eight possible scenarios. A five way tie will happen if Connecticut makes it to the championship game. It will be a matter of the Kentucky/Wisconsin game to determine if those five will fight it out for all three places or if Matt will take the win and leave 2nd and 3rd to be fought over. If Florida makes it to the championship however, Stephen and Jason will battle for first with Chris in 3rd, unless Kentucky beats Florida in the title game where William gets in the mix with Stephen and Jason, where they will all battle it out for all three places.

Here are the current standings wit updated links so you can view everyone's picks.

- March Madness 2014 - We have a Final Four set

I've updated the final 8 possible scenarios on Google Drive. Elizabeth still has a chance of pulling a double win, and there is also a slim chance that two Walkers could place in the same year. This feat has never happened in the past either.

I've finally updated the links as well, you can now view everyone's picks if you would like.

3/29/14 - Little Rock Office March Madness Challenge 2014 Half way to the Final Four

With two teams checking in to the Final Four, Florida and Wisconsin, we are down to only 32 possible scenarios that can still play out. With that, I have created a spread sheet on Google Drive that breaks down each play out and who would win if that happened. Here is the link --> Click Here.

Interesting tidbits based on the last possible scenarios: There are only 8 people still in the running for a top 3 finish. If Kentucky and Connecticut face each other in the championship game, regardless of the winner, there will be a 5 way tie for first, second and third. Michael has locked in the last place finish, and William has 12 in 32 possibility in winning first. This would be a big swing with a 2nd to last place finisher winning and a two time winner coming in dead last.

Here are the standings for those still interested.

A few highlights of the scenarios. Elizabeth has a chance of winning multiple positions, including a first and second place finish. This would definitely be a first. Only 9 people are still in the running for a potential spot in the top 3, and several of those will have to win a four way tiebreak in order to get one of those positions.
