3/26/12 - Walker March Madness 2012: Day 8 - Into the Final Four

The spreadsheet has been updated with the final scenarios. If Louisville wins next Saturday, Cristi takes it all. If Kentucky wins saturday, Elizabeth wins if they face Ohio State, and Eric and Michael tie if they face Kansas. I'll let you view the document for 2nd and 3rd place breakdowns.

I believe I have all the tiebreak points I need, and I'm pretty sure it will come down to that.

- LROMMC 2012: Day 8 - Into the Final Four

The way things went down this past weekend definitely moved things around a bit. I'm going to have to question Michael Hall though because I think he might have someone on the inside. 6 of the correct Elite 8 teams, and all the Final Four teams...seems a bit fishy to me.

Whatever the case, Michael has locked himself in as the winner this year. Playing for 2nd and 3rd place are Darren, John and Flint. If Ohio State makes it to the championship game, BUT does not lose to Kentucky, then John gets 2nd and Darren comes in 3rd. Any other scenario and Darren gets 2nd with Flint coming in at 3rd.

Sejal has locked up the consolation trophy, with myself coming in at a close 2nd for that amazing award.

3/24/12 - LROMMC 2012: Day 6

I think John has been in the lead since the first day of games. And with a UNC over Kentucky championship game, I'd say it will be difficult for anyone to catch him. Meanwhile, I'm down in the bottom battling Sejal, Billy and Carl for lowing points this year...I have no idea what happened.

- Walker March Madness 2012: Day 6

I'm pretty sure this is Day 6. I've been so busy that I haven't been able to keep track. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't also lost interest after losing all my Final Four teams by the Sweet 16...save UNC who should have lost.

Now that we are down to half of the Final Four, I have determined all the possibly remaining 32 scenarios, and who wins for each. You can find it on this Spreadsheet and if you can't access the document, leave a comment and I'll get it fixed. I don't believe you'll be able to modify the document, but you should be able to copy to Excel if you want to change the sort and stuff. As you can see, there are still plenty of people who can still win and tons of interesting ways this can end.

3/18/12 - Walker March Madness 2012: Day 4

With two of my final four teams already out (thanks FSU, way to throw a game away), it doesn't look good for me again this year. I hope that just one year, some time in the future, I can at least place in my own pool. Amazingly, there are a few scenarios where I could still at least come in 3rd. The best I can hope for is Michigan St beating UNC in the title game. If that doesn't happen, I guess there is always next year.

I've already lost 2 of my Final Four teams, so it's not looking too great for me. Although amazingly, if my best case scenarios play out which include Michigan St. beating UNC in the title game, I could still pull out a win. Let's just say I'm not going to hold my breath though.

- Walker March Madness 2012: Day 2

If you are looking for the rules for the Annual Little Rock Office March Madness Challenge held for office mates, please follow and bookmark this link.

I believe we set a record this year, Chris picked the first 21 games of the tournament this year, which included a handful of upsets. I'm pretty sure that no one saw Duke and Missouri, and not too many saw Michigan losing first round either. No big buzzer beater games, but plenty of upsets, all in all a good year so far (except me bringing up the rear in the standings).
