Sounds like you have a bit of experience on this subject though...

No no no. The extent of my "gambling" is the occasional quick pick lotto when it's worth my while (> $100m) and the slot machines the one time I've been to Vegas. I do look at the odds, particularly the spread and over/under, though for my Fantasy Football team.

Oh well, only 7 players. So who's who? I'm not certain who a couple of players are based on the email/yahoo ids.

Danny's Pick-em = me, Danny R
Tusk = Tusk
Guido_UL = Ray Clum
This isn't fantasy football? = cdru
Sparkman = ???
Kani = mwgiii
The Sage's Collection = ???


Couldn't figure me out, huh?

Well, I'm in 2nd now but Ok St going all the way is my only chance to win this, & since I'm an Illini fan, I can't root against em. I have 5 bracket out there & this is the only one I've picked against the Illini.

Man I picked some wrong teams this year. The good news is that I'm still beating the 2 other people that matter for the money. :) It looks like it's going to come down to who makes it to the finals, Kentucky or North Carolina for the money.

The Illini/Arizona game was definitely a must see event. It also looks like the Pick-em league is going to boil down to North Carolina or Illinois. The Illini win it all, so does the Sage. If it's NC, well... it cryin' in my beer time.

Looks like it's down to Tusk and Nikos09 tonight. Tusk gets it if NC wins, Nikos09 if Illinois.

Good news is that whoever pulls it out at the end, we all win with one heck of a game tonight. Should be one for the ages.

You lack of a <knock on wood> tag thus has guaranteed that one team will blow the other team out of the water.

Cool, I haven't even checked the site in a week because so many of my teams had lost. I guess as always it comes down to the championship game. If NC wins, I guess I have bragging rights. If Illinois wins, I guess I'm a second place loser. :D

The Media hasn't given any love towards Illinois. All the so called "Experts" have chose Arizona to beat Illinois last week and that did not happen. Wake Forest was Ranked #1 earlier this season and Illinois Destroyed them earlier this season. Tonight It is the 2 best teams going for the National Championship. I'm going with Illinois. Everything has come together nicely for the Illini this season and I have to go with them. I think they will be cutting down the Nets tonight in St. Louis.

Congrats Tusk. You beat us by 3 points.

At least I won $15 bucks out of this...

Congrats Tusk!

Not the outcome I would have liked but it was still a good game. I'd offer a number of complaints regarding the game but none of that is going to change the final outcome. Like Illinois, I'm going to take my beating and go on home.


(probably should have knocked on that wood though... :nono: )

Man, this is the first pool I've ever won and I didn't even have money in it. I guess that proves the gambling is the devil :D.

Oh well, I can bask in the glory of my victory and the fact that I came in 91,904 overall. Not too shabby. :lol:
