After years of consistently losing NCAA pools with $50 to $200 entry fees, I only entered 2 pools this year... the one in this thread and a 4-person $10 pool with some friends. I am in the top 1% on yahoo and have already won the 4-person pool, given the scoring system and my friends' similar picks.

I like where I stand in our pool, but still a long way to go and UNC is going to hurt me.

I think that I would have preferred to lose quickly, as usual, than win only $30 net and be the first wizardofvegas pool winner to not get a book. lol.

I picked exactly none of the last eight teams. I'd rhetorically ask, What are the odds, but being that this is a the very place where people calculate that stuff, and the fact that I don't want to know, I won't ask!

I participated on two of them on the same site as we are using for WOV. The first one is work people and I am miserably in last place. On the WOV I am in a respectable 9th and still have Kentucky. I did not take the same teams on both boards though.

My Michigan pick flamed out... I'm now rooting for The OSU since I picked them on another board...
