From the looks of things so far, it looks as though that he'll be looking to make an annual appearance because he is beating up on everyone in the tournament thus far and is atop the leader board. However, they have only completed the FIRST ROUND (out of FOUR on the road to the FINAL FOUR), so a lot can still, um, "change".
Here's a look at Obama's bracket vs. CV's bracket (and the overall standings).
By the looks of things, there are 4 crucial distinguishing games to be played this weekend that could turn the tables. Those games are:
- Pitt vs. Xaxier
- Maryland vs. Michigan St.
In both of these games, Obama & CV have chosen different teams to advance. The other games in question are:
- Texas A&M vs. Purdue
- Tennessee vs. Ohio
Each of these games represents a FREE PASS of sorts. A win by the Volunteers would give CV points at the expense of Obama (since Georgetown has been eliminated). Likewise, a win by Texas A&M over Purdue would give Obama a slight edge (because CV has no dog in that fight).
The overall standings of the SURVIVAL CAPITAL Tournament are as follows:
1. BARACK OBAMA - 25 (points)
2. McFEARLESS - 24
3. CV - 23 (CV presently holds tiebreaker advantages over next two)
3. I-MAN - 23
3. JUST ANOTHER BEAR - 23
6. BOB - 22
7. P2GUF - 21
7. CV's BRO's FRIEND - 21
9. CV's BRO - 20
9. ANON - 20
11. 2SMALL2DUNK - 19
12. MANNWICH - 16
Upsets still abound, many things can still happen!
