I'm looking at:
24/30 in Round 1 = 24 pts (26 if you count Chicago and Tufts with byes)
13/16 in Round 2 = 26 pts (only blemishes were St. Joes, Connecticut, Mary Washington)
Total thus far = 50 points

Yes EB's got 50 pts. I did a quick look at mine and got 49. I'll try to get unofficial 1st/2nd Round totals for the rest before Friday.

Friday????     Why even do a bracket challenge....You know Bloots get back to us in March with the results or you could pull a Lastguy and take over all this responsibility and redo the EPL challenge with betting lines and everything and after the 3rd week it turned into a sh*t show..By the 4th week the whole thing dissipated.....OffPitch has to be the most reliable at this kind of stuff....+k Bloots for the effort even if you bit off more than you could chew.....

Screw that.  Everyone can do their own. It's not rocket surgery.  :-)

I need clarification on my scoring. I did not include Chicago & Tufts on my round of 32 picks because they were not playing.
I did have them advancing in the round of 16, so I hope I can count them as correct for the round of 32. I just wanted full disclosure before I tally mine. Thanks!

Alright, here's the preliminary totals to date (1st and 2nd Rounds):

Note that the only rankings that matter are the ones after the championship. ;) And in the Bloots vs. Pelinho tiebreaker, West currently leads 2-0.

Ty: I included Chicago and Tufts for you in your score. Everyone gets a free pass with those.

With that:

Lord 56
EB 50
Soccerisasport, 2LeftFeet 49
Golden, Lastguy 48
Bloots, Buck, Letthekidsplay, Pelinho 47
Cardinal, Happy Gilmore 46
Ball, D3soccerwatcher, Swibbles 45
MAF, Ty 44
Casual, Saint 41

and bringing up the rear, the one who wanted the tabulations done quickly... ;)

D'oh no idea how you got left out I was writing down all the tabulations on paper and using shorthand. Yes, 47 points.
