    GoBig's NCAA Tournament Upset Special: Round of 32

    You are all welcome to join this competition. Participation in the round of 64 is unnecessary. Feel free to jump in before the start of any round.

    Rules:

    • Two point multiplier awarded for seed disparity in the Round of 32 (#7 beats a #2 + 5 x 2 = 10 points) You get the idea.
    • Three point muliplier for seed disparity in Sweet Sixteen
    • Four point multiplier in the Elite Eight
    • Five point multiplier the Final Four


    The only qualifier going forward for picking an upset is this: Lower seeded teams are the underdog. Given the scoring system, strong seed disparity may be key.

    All Round of 32 picks are due by noon on Sat. 3/19.

    Leaders thru Round 1:

    Docta: Morehead St. for 9 points
    Kaba: Richmond for 7 points
    DaBearsFan: Richmond for 7 points
    Colts: Gonzaga for 5 points
    PolishGuy: Marquette for 5 points

    The Doughnut Club:

    GoBig: Oaklund U for 0 points
    Pruitt: Missouri for 0 points
    Turk Schonert: Utah State for 0 points
    Clem: Memphis for 0 points

    If you ask me how I want to be remembered, it is as a winner. You know what a winner is? A winner is somebody who has given his best effort, who has tried the hardest they possibly can, who has utilized every ounce of energy and strength within them to accomplish something. It doesn't mean that they accomplished it or failed, it means that they've given it their best. That's a winner.”
    ― Walter Payton

    Although it goes against my better judgment by going with Clem, I'll take #11 Gonzaga over #3 BYU for 16 points.

    I will come with my upset pick later, but this is the only time I will be able to brag about being in first in the Bracket Challenge so far and having correctly called every first round upset so far with exception of Morehead State/Louisville.. of course the man who started it all Turk, it right on my heels so I won't be up top long

    /in interest of full disclosure, I also had Michigan State making Elite 8 so yea, like they say better to be lucky then good
