    Looks like we have 12 entries so far. I'm looking forward to another dozen tomorrow in the human division plus up to 6 in the machine/statistical division.

    A FAVOR TO ASK.... If anyone reading this subscribes to Top Drawer, could you post an entry via private message to me based on their bracket which they have apparently posted for premier members. (I didn't see a formal bracket on their site last year so made an entry based on their team rankings. I can do that again, but since they actually have a bracket up, it would be nice to use the real picks.)

    Kick it hard,
    Your 3rd round shows USC and not Florida State at all. But your 4th round shows Florida State winning.

    Sliding in slightly late, forgive me. And my commentary no one asked for: I won this thing two years ago, picking my Seminoles to crash on a trip out West and identifying USCw as a team who had underperformed overall on the season but really stepped up against their best competition.... a combo I like come tournament time. Taking that formula and going full homer with the Seminoles through to the end here and sending USC home on the trip out East. Fingers crossed!

    The First Round results are in... and our hearty Prognosticators have started to separate themselves. But not by much.

    In the Human Division, mpr2477 is currently at the top of the heap having missed only 4 of the possible 32 choices. One point behind is sweepsit, followed by Millenium and WWC_Movement. Then the hoards are bunched up behind the four leaders followed by three contestants who took a bold contrarian position on some calls.

    But the fact is that there is only a spread of 6 points between the top and bottom which is equal to a single correct choice in the third round or less than a single choice in the last three rounds... so anyone could yet win.

    A special shout-out goes to RtD! who was the only contestant to call Virginia Tech over Texas (and only one of three to call Lipscomb over Missisippi State) and to
    NilamCA who was the only contestant to call Hofstra over Boston College.

    Over in the Machine Division (statistical or based on pre published rankings) the top three are tied with 26 out of 32 calls right -- (CP Thomas' "Iteration 5" RPI, Massey Ratings, and the NCAA Non-Conference RPI.) Then follows the NCAA RPI, and lastly the Top Drawer Soccer bracket and the United Soccer Coaches poll rankings.

    Next weekend (second and third rounds) should tell the story for many contestants, -- but maybe this bunch is unusually competitive and we will have a large horse race until the end. Who knows!
