In doing a quick review of our predictions from about a month ago, virtually everyone had SIU in the cellar and had Evansville winning some games. I know I did. Otherwise, the other teams are doing as most of us expected.

The Moser Coaching Tree seems to be doing a lot better than the Muller coaching tree. At least right now.

All: Here is what I came up with for the Prediction Pool. Low Score is the winner. The rules are in the 1st message in this thread.

DW Redbird and Redbirds 82 24
Quinn, Redbirds 76 and Adunk 26
HortonFieldhouse 28
Sgt Hulka 29
Baltimore Bird, Redbird Alum 2004 30
Sporten Wood, Birds Eye View 32
Redbirds 93, Redbirds 222 33
Chuckie 1980 52

The tie breaker was most teams picked with the correct seed.
DW Redbird had Northern Iowa, Loyola and Bradley (3)
Redbirds 82 had Northern Iowa, Bradley and Mo. State (3)

So, we have a tie. The next tie breaker was the MVC tournament. I will send out something soon on that contest for DW Redbird and Redbirds 82. Thank you all for playing.

Redbirds 82. I did not get your picks. I am on the flight to STL. Please post them here. Since I already have the other picks that will work fine. I will post the other picks once yours are here and I am in a STL bar!

So, both players have the same champion. It will come down to a tiebreaker to determine our champion.
DW Redbird has Loyola as the runner up.
Redbirds 82 has Indiana State as the runner up.

Good luck. We are heading to get our 1st beer. Go Redbirds!
