Sorry about your VCU team - except I didn't pick them so I'm not THAT sorry.

I just ignore it. The raw number is what matters.

Well, I'm back in Richmond now. Really disappointing game. After Maynor missed that shot, I was in shock. He doesn't miss that shot. Ever. I felt like the ref was going to say "My bad, let's re-play that". It was surreal. After Larry crushed that ball on that block, I thought it was a lock.

Chuck, the percentage doesn't apply to our group. It's your worldwide ranking of all pickers on ESPN. Currently, your score is 200, which puts you in the 9.6 percentile. There are millions playing on ESPN, so there's going to be a very large difference in percentile even between 10 points.

What matters in the long-run for our group, is the total points. Unfortunately, your championship pick has already lost, so you need to pray that somebody beats Louisville and Pittsburgh because that's what the rest of us chose.

Hope that helps.

It makes total sense thank you!

I knew WF at a #4 was a bit of a long shot for the title but I sure as heck thought them getting out of the first round was a lock.

WTF????

I had Wake Forest going a couple rounds so that one hurt me in my pool too. I only picked them to go that far because of some crackhead on CNNSI.com praising them. Made me reconsider my bracket and screwed me. I'm going to hunt him down now.
