Smoking Musket NCAA Tournament Bracket Challenge Update

In the quest for a free WVU t-shirt, many have entered, but few have flourished, including the experts writing for this site. Currently, with a somewhat lackluster 38 points, Charley and WVUIE97 have the highest point totals of the authors here on the Smoking Musket. However, WVUIE97 inexplicably picked Syracuse to win it all and is basically guaranteed to finish near the bottom of the standings after the Final Four.

Bringing up the rear of writers is Country Roads and myself.  Both of us have a meager 35 points, but have the potential to surpass Charley in the final standings. I think I still have a chance to win it all, but I'm the eternal optimist.

The leader in the clubhouse is bicklefischerkane whose great pick of Arizona is riding high right now. I think his and the Wildcats' luck runs out in the Sweet 16 when Duke knocks them out. Quickly looking at some of the other top rated brackets, it appears that Sam Jones and Chris Ferrell have the best chance to win the free t-shirt. However, I may be one of the only people that have San Diego State in the Final Four so I could also be sitting pretty.

Good luck in the final weeks of the tournament...
