2013 NCAA Tournament: An Update On The H&R Challenge

J. Meric

With the Final Four set the H&R Tourney challenge is down to a handful of winning entries.

If you didn't figure it out yesterday, J and Dowd from Boiled Sports pulled a fast one on me with the series of April Fool's Day posts. I am not going anywhere, but I am looking at a few other writers to pickup things once my son is born so I can step back ever so slightly because of the responsibilities with him. Mostly I am looking to make the content more well-rounded and improve the coverage we already do. So feel free to vote in the following poll to help me improve the site going forward.

In the meantime, the H&R Bracket challenge is coming to a close and we have a winner if Louisville wins it. PurduePharmJack1 has 890 points after getting only two Final Four teams through, but the two he got were in his title game with Louisville beating Michigan. Second is mattjones18 2 who got Michigan and Syracuse right, with Michigan winning it all. He only has 820 points, as does dkboilerfan 1 who has Louisville beating Michigan in the final. Matt Jones can still win it all if Michigan wins the title.

For the record, I am 236th out of 326, but I am not even mad since I pulled off a successful reverse jinx with it.

Finally, here are some links for the day:
