The national semis and the final are still to come (three games), but all of us are now watching from the stands .. none of us have a live pick left, not one .. and there's no #1 seed in the Final Four, and no #2 seed! This is the first time the Final is devoid of both #1 and #2 seeds.

Between us we had 38 picks in last night's games, and rxbigdawg was the only one to score .. he picked #4 Kentucky to beat #2 UNC .. and he falls over the line, a single solitary point in front of toocool4u, to snatch the silver medal.
N-Bomb may have run out of picks, but he led from start to finish to grab gold.

1. N-Bomb
2. rxbigdawg
3. toocool4u


My work is done, we had an early finish to the comp! This brings to an end the 10th edition of Madness here at FT, and our 10th different winner. This is one short of the FT record .. the NFL comp has been running for 11 years, and seen 11 different winners (and still counting).

One day someone will win this twice; it can't go on forever .. and then we'll wait for someone to retain their title. Thank you linesmen and women, thank you ballboys and girls .. and congratulations to the three medallists!

It seems like such a confusing scoring system.

Well done George!


Did anybody in the world have Butler playing VCU in the Final Four?

Thanks gtho4 for runnign the competition.

I think they said on ESPN last night that 2 people out of 5.9 million had all 4 Final 4 teams correct, or something like that.

I bet those two were just joking around and just picked those four randomly!
