    Some Dude on ESPN Bracket Challenge got Final 4 teams right

    How in the world did he do it....

    It would be tough to have this Final 4 right with no #1 and no #2 seeds alive...

    Re: Some Dude on ESPN Bracket Challenge got Final 4 teams right

    He was probably guessing USC and not VCU. But still pretty lucky, as there's no way in hell he "picked" this. This was just guessing or "luck of the draw." There's no way a sane person would have picked this Final Four.

    That's pretty awesome. I'd like to know how he did it.

    This. There is not 1 logical reason you could have those picks. I don't care what you say, if you picked those for a good reason, you're a liar.

    I don't see how he did it without going "eenie meenie miney mo" the whole way. Who would waste one of their 10 chances to get THAT Final Four?

    Somehow picked the final four right but had Louisville to the Elite 8, definitely just luck.

    His coin was better calibrated. Winning a bracket challenge is all about quality equipment.

    Why wouldn't you? If you have ten chances, why not use one on something completely different. That pick would set you apart from the crowd.

    After you make that bracket, you probably just assume that it's a waste. But once the tourney develops, you start watching more closely, because there's an off-chance that it actually happens.

    I can understand the UConn, Kentucky, and even Butler (which I think he would still be unsure about). But not VCU.

    Somebody's bitter that they aren't going to win the $10,000.

    UNPOSSIBLE.

    He was probably the joke of his pool before the tournament started. And now... Roll tide.
