With the Sweet 16 scheduled to begin tonight, I figured I would post an update of the standings for the TNT bracket challenge.

Contrary to certain insinuations from the TNT prep coordinator whose name rhymes with Lacey, and certain afternoon radio hosts on KJR, there are no shady dealings with the pool. Yes, I happened to be tied for first with Sage Reeves and Thomas Dashiell. But if you look closely at the all important “Best score” column, I can’t win the pool. I only have a possible best score of 159. That’s mainly due to the fact that I have Missouri in the Final Four. I filled out five brackets, and I have Marquette in the Final Four in the other four.

Anyway, if by some stroke of chance I do win, which doesn’t seem possible, I will gladly give the gift card option to whoever finishes second.

But let’s take a look at some of the more notable people and their ranking in the pool of 205 people.

    Tied for 8th and I’m the only one in the top 8 to pick Syracuse! Too bad I despise rooting for the Orangemen.
