After a thrilling season, some minor upsets (yeah I'm talking to you Tom Izzo), some office trash talk and a really good finale, I'm thrilled to report that the Kansas Jayhawks defeated Memphis in overtime last night and won yours truly some money in the office pool!

As I mentioned in my previous post, I usually don't bet on sports because I never win, but I did win yesterday. Well, I won second place out of 27... not bad! And boy am I glad to have won. After hanging near the bottom of the brackets through the first and second rounds, my picks finally started to pan out. And thanks to the fact that virtually everyone else in the office had UNC going to the final, and even fewer who picked Kansas in the final actually had them winning, I sprang ahead from 7th or 8th yesterday to taking second place.

So, from one Big 12 alumni to Jayhawk nation, congrats on winning the championship last night!

When I first saw your bracket, I laughed thinking there was no way Kansas would win...what do I know, I picked UNC :(

i wouldn't have a CLUE who to pick or how to bet or anything. i stay far far away from anything with the word "brackets"

Some call bracketology an art, some call it skill, I call it pure luck wtih a dash of loyalty to Big 12 schools!
