LOL pelinho did you copy my bracket? I am pretty sure we have identical selections from the 1st Round to the Final and the # of goals.

That's why he said it was "for sure a winner."

Honestly, that is absolutely wild! I filled out my paper bracket on Tuesday after the selection show. May the best man win!

Haha, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt.

Sure, why not. Actually, each round might be a bit much, so we can say three: post-Round of 32, Elite 8, and Final.

Given that the two groups of selections and the tiebreakers would still yield a tied result, I'm introducing Tie-Breaker 4 (particularly for Pelinho and myself): Tournament top scorer

I'm going West.

Don't know much about teams outside the geographic mid-atlantic area, but here goes ...

ROUND OF 32

Chicago, Carleton, Trinity, MHB, Luther, GustA, St. Thomas, Augsburg, CWRU, Capital, Kenyon, CMU, Calvin, Wis-Platt, John Carroll, Lycoming, Tufts, Stevens, Amherst, Middlebury, Conn, Ramapo, Montclair, NYU, Messiah, JHopkins, Cortland, Williams, Rochester, SLU, F&M, UMW

ROUND OF 16
Chicago, Trinity, Luther, St. Thomas, CWRU, Kenyon, Calvin, John Carroll, Tufts, Amherst, Conn, Montclair, Messiah, Cortland, SLU, F&M

ELITE 8
Chicago, St. Thomas, Kenyon, Calvin, Tufts, Montclair, Messiah, SLU

FINAL FOUR
Chicago, Calvin, Tufts, Messiah

FINAL
Calvin over Messiah

Goals scored in Final:  2


Obviously, I am not going out on much of a limb for my final four, but I like watching possession soccer and I would like to see a first time champion, hence my final picks.  I haven't seen Calvin play this year, but I like what I saw of them in the past couple years.
