Who The Heck Is George Mean & Why Didn’t He Put A Bracket In?

I received this infographic from longtime pool member and resident statistician Damian Doerfer before the tournament started.










I know what you are thinking – “Joe, you had this information before the tournament started and you waited until the Elite Eight to share it […]

Big Ten Is Elite

I am one to admit when I’m wrong and I went all kinds of Medcalf on the Big Ten — Turns out, the Big Ten is not overrated. Not by a long shot.

The depth of the conference proved to be mediocre with three early knockouts, but the top squads have proven their worth. With […]

Myron Medcalf Might Be Psychic…

The Experts Are At It Again!

… Or maybe not.

ESPN’s Medcalf wrote some “Bold Predictions” for the Sweet 16. Let’s just say, he has been slightly off so far: Prediction Fail

Let me breakdown each of his points for Thursday –

Point #2: Stanford advancing over Dayton – Not even close. Stanford looked […]

Different Strokes


If you are new to the pool this year – welcome. If you are a veteran – welcome back. I hope you enjoyed the first two rounds of the tournament. What’s that? They’ve actually completed 3 rounds so far? No, sorry, I don’t consider the play-in games to be […]

Conference Breakdown After the Opening Weekend

I ranked the Conferences in order of performance so far:

#1 – SEC: Remaining: 3 (Florida, Kentucky, Tennessee) Wins: 6 Notes: The SEC has been incredible so far… A perfect 6-0. Kentucky just ended a team’s 35-game win streak. Doesn’t get any better than that. Total Teams: 3 (Seeds: 1, 8, 11) Projected Wins: 7



At least everyone got to go to bed at a decent hour tonight because there were absolutely zero good games in the night session.

Curse Avoided!!!

For some reason, North Carolina could beat MSU with 4 guys on the court.


Those that follow MSU basketball closely jumped for joy when UNC was eliminated by Iowa State this afternoon. Sure it is unusual to pull for the favorite in your bracket, but considering MSU’s history with UNC, you cannot blame […]

Shockers Shocked

This game was a classic example of the overachieving mid-major vs the underachieving power conference team. In this case, the Kentucky Wildcats started the season ranked #1, but only made the tournament as an 8 seed after losing 10 games during the year. On the other hand, Wichita State rattled off 34 victories to enter […]

Kansas Misses Super Freshman — Exits Dance Early

If you do not know who Joel Embiid is, than it is annoying your bracket is ahead of mine… And just about everyone is ahead of my bracket this year. So yeah, annoying.

Kansas star Freshman Joel Embiid is a 7 footer that has averaged over 11 points and 8 rebounds a game. He also […]

Big Ten Sends 3 to Sweet 16, but Dayton is the Story!

I still love this Headline. Stick it to those Buckeyes.


The Flyers are flying high after knocking off the third seeded Syracuse team. The Orange shot sub-40% and got out-hustled on the glass. Dayton kept the window open for Syracuse over and over down the stretch, but Syracuse just kept on failing to […]
