As we enter the Sweet 16, brackets across the nation are busted thanks to upsets galore, including the first ever 16 seed knocking off a 1 seed. Thankfully, my Boilermakers are still alive, and thanks to my trip to Vegas this week, I have some money riding on them to win the whole thing. Crazier things have already happened in this year’s tournament.
I’m in trouble here, as only 1 team I picked heading in to the Sweet 16 is still alive. Virginia, the overall #1 seed, lost in the first round to the upstarts from UMBC. Exciting times all around.
I’ve got 2 out of the remaining 4 teams still alive, and my final four slot here is still in play. Hopefully I lose that, though, on my way to paying off the Vegas bet.
Only 1 of the remaining four teams are in play, and my final four selection from this region has been knocked out.
2 teams remain alive, though, again, my final four selection has already been knocked out.
