With the first two rounds in the books, iBOsbu has a 16 point lead, but it appears that there are three entries with a clear path to winning. I haven't fully worked through the permutations but there is also a chance that plash.ricrem could soar from his current 7th place to the title with the right combination of wins by his teams and losses by others.

iBOsbu (54 / 3 teams left) –Florida State (4,4,?), Oregon (7,7,?), UCLA (11,11,?), Rutgers (10,0), Tennessee (0)
popolamma (38 / 2 teams left) –UCLA (11,11,?), USC (6,6,?), Oklahoma State (4,0), Iona (0), Colgate (0)
BingGrad (37 / 1 team left) – Syracuse (11,11,?), Texas Tech (6,0), Wisconsin (9,0), Virginia (0), UConn (0)
Mr. Quint (31 / 1 teams left) – Florida State (4,4,?), Ohio (13,0), Oklahoma State (4,0), Texas Tech (6,0), San Diego State (0)
Bearcatbball22 (30 / 2 teams left) – Arkansas (3,3,?), Oregon (7,7,?), Rutgers (10,0), Georgetown (0), UConn (0)
Albany Weave (27 / 0 teams left) – Ohio (13,0), Oklahoma State (4,0), Rutgers (10,0), North Carolina (0), UConn (0)
plash.ricrem (26 / 3 teams left) – Arkansas (3,3,?), Florida State (4,4,?), USC (6,6,?), Purdue (0), San Diego State (0)

I have a real talent for picking the wrong upsets. If someone wants to make a ton of money, pick the upsets I don't. Good lord

Saturday is in the books. iBOsbu is close to wrapping things up. popolamma could get over the top if USC makes the final game and FSU, Oregon and UCLA all lose today. Finally I think plash.ricrem could still tie with popolamma for the title if Arkansas defeats USC in the final game along with FSU, Oregon and UCLA all losing today. This is all my estimation. If there is any doubt as to the champ after today's action I'll be more easily able to put together the path for everyone to win.

And then there were two. iBOsbu with 65 points and popolamma with 49 points.

The analysis is simple. In order for popolamma to win, USC must defeat Oregon in Sunday's late game and win two more times to advance to the National Championship game. If USC doesn't make it to the title game then iBOsbu is our 2021 champ.

Ditto. Thank you BingGrad for updates. USC will have to go through #1Zags and most probably #1Michigan... best two teams in the tournament so far. Going to be tough for USC to reach the finals, but this is where the March magic happens. I picked UCLA/MSU for Tom Izzo. Who would have thought UCLA would be the team with this deep run. Really enjoying watching the Pac12 teams.

And with USC exiting in the Elite 8, iBOsbu is the 2021 champion!!! All that is left is to see whether iBOsbu can match of beat the tournament record of 89 points (set by pizzabox09 in 2013 when he somehow nailed 2 Final Four teams and tallied 87 total points). If UCLA advances to the final game then iBOsbu ties the record. If UCLA wins the national championship then we'll have a new scoring record for the Pick 5 tournament with 99 points.

Thank you BingGrad. I hope you run this again next year. Although I think I may have used up all my lucks in this year’s picks.
I dedicate this win to hundreds tens of depressed Seawolves fans who are stuck with another 3 years of inexplicable outrageous Geno Ford contract.
