    BracketCaster on ESPN

    Has anyone else messed around with bracket caster on ESPN. I just simulated the whole tournament and ended up with a Oklahoma, Gonzaga, Marquette, Drake final four. Drake beating Oklahoma in the championship. Seems about right.

    For me, it found Butler, USC, Miss. St., and Xavier in the Final Four, with Miss. St. beating Butler in the National Championship Game.

    Re: BracketCaster on ESPN

    First Try:

    Final Four

    Wisconsin over Indiana
    Michigan St over Western Kentucky

    Finals

    Michigan St over Wisconsin

    3 of 4 Final Four teams from Big Ten...

    It is pretty neat nevertheless.

    Re: BracketCaster on ESPN

    I just got a pretty boring one. Final four was Tennessee, Kansas, Memphis and UCLA. UCLA beat Tennessee for the title. But the winner of the play-in game made it all the way to the elite 8.

    I got Louisville, Wisconsin, Marquette, and Xavier with Wisconsin beating Xavier for the championship. Can't say that I would complain about that.

    Re: BracketCaster on ESPN

    Far be it from me to question the validity of this well-honed simulator, but I will not have a Final Four of Memphis, Tennessee, Davidson and Drake on my bracket.

    I ended up with Kansas over Oklahoma and UCLA over Cornell, with Kansas beating UCLA in the championship. It had Texas-Arlington upsetting Memphis in the first round.

    Re: BracketCaster on ESPN

    I did it quite a few times earlier today and never had anything unusual. Now I just did it again and the winner of the play-in game beat NC while Miss. Valley St. made the Final 4 where they lost to Stanford. The finals was Oklahoma over Stanford.

    Re: BracketCaster on ESPN

    My Noteable Upsets from this:

    Boise State takes out Louisville, St. Joes, Tennessee and North Carolina to advance to the Final Four.

    UMBC Beats Georgetown, meaning we never hear about Hampton again after this year.

    USC advances to the Final Four.

    Texas beats Memphis to advance to the Final Four.

    Western Kentucky Upsets Drake, while San Diego upsets UConn.

    USC upsets Texas 67-62 in the National Title Game!


    I removed it.

    I just realized what I was doing. If you click on the game instead of clicking on the "simulate round" button, the team you click on will win the game. So...if anyone else is getting some weird results, you have to click simulate round in order to get an actual simulation rather than a selected result.
