In the event of a tie, you go to final score of nat'l championship game.

Thats why I never get involved in these things, if it was just picking the winners I'd be all about it.

I would never do something with confidence points for money, but since it's just for fun, I figured why not?

After leading for the entire tournament, it looks like I could be undone by a brilliant comeback by Portisfan24. He saved his highest confidence picks for last, and correctly picked Connecticut, Texas, and Tulsa with his 31,32, & 33 point picks. If he correctly picks the Florida / Oklahoma winner for 34 points, he'll triumph with 422 points to my 409/410. :~(

That's a good battle between you two. I was undone by my 4-8 picks. I got my top four right, but missed LSU/GA Tech, Notre Dame/Hawaii, East Carolina/Kentucky and Texas Tech/Ole Miss. And I was pretty confident about all four. :-[ I get those right and I'm right there in the top five.

Come on Knapp. I know people dislike ND, but to win against Hawaii? Yea, they lost to Syracuse, but SYR is better than Hawaii and they had weeks to prepare. That game was a big money maker for me.

I picked Hawaii too, and considering where you're gonna finish in the Pick'em, should you really be chiding anyone for a bad pick, Deeray? ;-) :-b :-D :-)

Touche, but like I said earlier in the thread I forgot about this one because I had another one for money and I have been busy with school. That one I was doing better in until this last 4 games and I had to change teams to be able to win because my buddy told me who he had and we both had the same people, but he had about 20 more points so if my guys won out I would still lose :~(
