2016 Bracket Challenge
« on: November 20, 2016, 09:53:06 am »
After yesterday's games I was wondering how everyone is doing with their picks. I got 15 of the 16 games correct. The one I missed went to 4 Overtimes and was won by Wittenberg.

14/16 for me....

Missed on Thomas More (lost in 4 OT's) and Platteville (lost on final play of game 32-31.)

One thing I did notice while following the games yesterday, is just how accurate the guys at d3football.com are when it comes to their poll.  With the field down to 16 teams, thirteen of them are ranked in the Top 16, with two others ranked #17 and #18, and the last team (Western New England) being unranked.  With the way the match-ups were set up, only 14 out of the Top 16 were able to move on.

We are tied with 87 other people for 15th place then, I had the exact same first rd bracket.

Well, I don't think I'm gonna win this year, as I had North Central and Johns Hopkins advancing. Mount will probably get past Alfred, but that's as far as they go. The other side of the bracket is far less certain.

Good luck to all!

I think there will be a slug of us that got the top two teams right. I had Whitewater and Johns Hopkins as the other semi-finalists. Anybody looking here get the final 4 correct?

Same here. I actually had the final 4.
What the hell was that?  That was a Drop-kick.  Drop-kick? How much is that worth?  Three points.  THREE POINTS?!
