Agree with Ryan, Indiana just misses out on the scoring imabalance criteria. 61.6%, not the 64% needed.

I think i have made a brackete that looks GREAT on paper

Indiana is not a contender because they do not meet the requirement of imbalanced scoring . . . Indiana gets only 62% of their scoring from their front court, below the 64% needed to qualify as a contender as a 4 seed

Pete, I sent you a message but i thought I would try u here. In your final 4/ champ rules you have Baylor. However, I had Indiana and Baylor as contenders. According to your rules 4 seeds should always advance. In addition to that the percentage is 100% for 4 seeds 8- 0 (I got UK last year bc of this). Did I miss something?? Thanks!!!

Hi everyone. There must've been some glitch with the Chat function. That's a three- year old function. (It underscores how much I need to update the site, including making it more smart phone- friendly.) I just popped in and saw that Ryan had been there and then left.

Don't overthink it....I get excited throughout the first 4 days but it really comes down to your Sweet 16 picks and how they advance. Everybody seems to be in the thick of things with 11/ 16 to 14/ 16 of the Sweet 16 Picks.

If you get the Final 4 right then it's "moneytime"

I agree . . . I wish there was a transcript from the earlier chat session, but oh well, stuff like this happens . . . pretty bummed out i missed the chat though, i set an alarm and signed into the chat early to make sure i didnt miss it and i still missed it, lol . . . hopefully this isn't an indication of how my luck is going to go during the tournament, lol

yea, I was in there from like 7 to 9 (just left the window open), i kept checking back in, but nothing was really happening . . . I just exited out of chrome completely and reopened the page and signed into the chat and their are completely different people in the chat room, haha, and conversations going on dating back awhile . . . I'm guessing Balimus is correct, lol

I talked to a few people but never saw Pete in the chat or in the chat log. I think there are two completely separate chat servers.

Let's chat tonight before your brackets are due:

I'll be in the chat room tonight from 7- 8pm EST...and longer if necessary. Join me by going to "Play Time" and clicking on "Fan Chat." Looking forward to debating bracket picks.

Pete
