Dealbreaker NCAA Tournament Challenge: Final Results

From Pool Manager NakedShort (who you should all thank for running this thing):

We had to go to a tiebreaker to settle this bad boy, as both GoGFYyourself and O Rhodes were tied at the top with 124 points and both correctly picked UConn to win the title.

O Rhodes had the combined score of the title game at 147, GoGFYyourself at 133. I was hoping the final would be 140 so Bess would have a huge mess on her hands but it was not to be, since last night we were treated to a game that set basketball back at least 50 years with a combined score of 94 points.

Let's give a golf clap to GoGFYyourself this year's Dealbreaker Challenger winner. I think I speak for all of us when I say I hope you choke on your steak.

GoGFYyourself, get in touch with me to collect your prize (and explain why you doubled up on the 'go' and 'yourself' in GFY)!

A Final Update And Cautionary Tale From Your Dealbreaker NCAA Tournament Challenge Manager

This is Pool Manager NakedShort, signing off until next year: "Tied for first are 'HeyConnah' and 'Shawn S.' Both have Kansas winning, while HeyConnah predicts a final aggregate score of 125 and Shawn S puts it at 128. If Kentucky prevails tonight, 'Benjamin W.' will be the new owner of, among other things, some awesome swag; he has Kentucky winning it all and is currently in sole possession of second place. On a personal note, I've been a huge KU fan my entire life and I am a little (a lot) pissy about there being no possible way for me-- currently tied for 7th-- to win. What I'm saying is..." "KANSAS OWES ME AT LEAST A TITLE to compensate for the fact that I will not be taking home the DBNCAATC trophy. That said, it's probably for the best: the last time I won a bracket pool and KU won the title in the same night I got so drunk I blacked out and according to my wife, came into the bedroom and yelled 'Fuck You Roy (Williams),' before vomiting all over the area rug and passing out. Needless to say she was not a happy camper cleaning the mess while being 5 months pregnant. Good luck to our leaders and may the odds be forever in your favor."
