Bracket in the Pig Sty?

I’m afraid your loyal results announcer’s bracket is now a play thing in the pig sty. Talk about rolling in the mud! How’s your bracket? In the muck with me? Results after the Sweet 16 games are available here and the current results after the Elite 8 games are posted here.

The current leader board:

1st place: Tad Deshler continues to hog the limelight as his Bulldogs head to their first Final Four.

2nd place: Maddogsirish49ers has no reason to wallow after rising from a 9th place tie after the Sweet 16 to grab the number 2 spot heading into next weekend.

3rd place: Lvannice is holding onto third by a point, but could be stuck in the mud after Kentucky’s last second loss on Sunday.

4th place: Ryan S. is hoping to bring home the bacon after climbing from 14th into 5th overall and seems destined to climb higher.

In the Robinson Noble staff and family division, the leaders are:

1st place: David W may need a mud bath to cool off after another strong showing over the weekend leaves him in the top spot.

2nd place: FMK is in second and rooting for UNC to run hog wild over the Ducks on Saturday. Oink!

3rd place: Coin Flipper raided the piggy bank to get this far, but he may soon be down in the dumps now that his bracket is also busted.

4th place: With Oregon on fire and “Sizzlean,” Kari‘s position improved ten places over the weekend.

With only 4 teams left, the excitement is building. Pick yourself up out of the mud and stay tuned!

Dog Gone It, This is True March Madness!

Is West Virginia feeling like a Bulldog deflated their basketball? Such madness!. Up-to-date results are posted right here.

And our leader board shows:

1st place: How about that Tad Deshler! With a super solid 96 points and his Bulldogs still in the hunt, Tad is at the top of the dog pile.

2nd place: And our former number one, Bear Down Cats, has slipped to second place. But with this Cat’s champion now out, his bracket may have gone to the dogs.

3rd place (tie): Rising in the dog pile from sixth to third is Lvannice with 80 points. That dog has to be dancing. Meanwhile Evan Botkin’s Bracket is a happy dog as well, staying firmly in third, though with Evan’s champion out, his bracket may be turning into a dog’s breakfast.

In the Robinson Noble staff and family division, the leaders are:

1st place: Hot diggity dog for David W! With 82 points good ole’ David is one hot dog. Can his champion, the Ducks, come out as top dog?

2nd place: Continuing in second place is Coin Flipper with 75 points. But is Flipper, with their champion out, destined for the bottom of the the dog pile?

3rd place (tie): Kysen must be one dancing dog, jumping all the way from 59th place overall to a tie at third with 74 points! And how about that Haley P moving up from 23rd. Two happy dogs here!

The weekend’s excitement has just begun. Tune in Monday to see whose at top dog!

Goat Get Your Bracket?

Holy Goat! What a bracket-busting weekend. Number 1 and 2 seeds going down in barnyard flames. The results after Round 1 are posted here and the results after Round 2 are posted here.

The leader board after on Monday morning has:

1st place: No goats on Bear Down Cats’ team. Leading since day one, this cat is has posted 77 points! And with their champion, Arizona, still in the hunt, this cat surely is goatless!

2nd place: Rising from 18th place last Friday to a tie for 1st on Saturday and now undisputed 2nd place is Tad Deshler. Tad is no goat either, with a solid 75 points.

3rd place: In a totally ungoat-like performance, Evan Botkin’s Bracket zoomed up from 11th place on Saturday to 3rd on Monday with 72 points.

4th place: Navistar Crazies survived the weekend to be in 4th place with 69 points. But Navi might be in trouble, their champion, Duke, goated it up and is heading back to the farm.

In the Robinson Noble staff and family division, the leaders are:

1st place: No goats for David W., with 70 points! Good old David is dreaming of victory and hoping his champion, Oregon, has no goats on the team.

2nd place: Rising from from the barnyard in 23rd overall place on Friday, to 8th overall place on Monday, good enough for 2nd place in the RN division, is that master of probability Coin Flipper.

3rd place (tie): With his East bracket goated into oblivion, Son of a Zag, fell into a tie for 3rd place in the RN division with 65 points. Meanwhile, FMK, won a few barnyard fights to climb up to third.

The barnyard hoops aren’t done yet. Might there be more goats out there in your bracket? Stay tuned!!!
