Notes:

-- No one picked Wichita State to win it all. Obvi. As one would suspect for a bracket challenge run by a Boston College blog, just two picked Syracuse as champ -- Uncle Shinskie and ACal6888. Just one -- Papa Fresh Bracket -- picked Michigan.

-- Twenty four of 79 -- over 30 percent of the pool -- picked Louisville to win it all.

-- The current leader, Airforce987, correctly picked three of the Final Four -- Louisville, Michigan and Florida wishful thinking Syracuse. Well done well done!

-- The award for worst set of completed picks goes to MCLEMORE AND RYAN KELLY. Next year perhaps do a bit more research and less partying in anticipation of MODSTOCK 2013? This bracket had just one correct Elite Eight pick (Florida) and no correct Final Four teams -- Creighton, Gonzaga, Indiana and Florida (though I feel ya on the Gators pick).
