Pig Cow Bracket update: Winners seem more clear cut if Gonzaga, North Carolina or Oregon win

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — I’m sure there are a large majority of you cheering for former K-State coach Frank Martin to win a National Championship for South Carolina. Yours truly isn’t one of them.For if South Carolina wins all the marbles, it will create absolute chaos in the Sumner Newscow Pigshack Bracket Buster Contest. It will bring a great number of brackets back into the contest that will need to be re-tallied, because no one, let’s repeat, NO ONE! picked South Carolina to get to the Final Four let alone win it all.So if South Carolina wins, then every bracket would be wrong and therefore it is a free-for-all to see who had the most “less wrong” bracket. Go, Gonzaga!If it becomes a North Carolina, Gonzaga or Oregon as national champions then there is definitely a clear-cut winner. By the way, kudos to anyone who picked Oregon to win it all. That doesn’t seem like a normal thing to do. But Colton Whaley and Braxten Phillip Caudillo are the only two bracketologists of the 150 so brackets we received who have the Ducks winning it all.Whaley will win the $100 and $100 Pig Shack gift certificate if Oregon cruises, because Phillip Caudillo missed 16 first rounders and 10 second rounders. As we have said before. But he will get the second place prize. It’s not how you start but how you finish.Last week, we threw out the words “watch Ashleigh Huck‘s bracket.” And here we are one week later, and her bracket still sizzles. She has Gonzaga over North Carolina for all the marbles. But Amanda Eckermann has a good one as well. She has Gonzaga over Oregon.Two other brackets to watch: Scott Lee and Tim Norris. Both players have North Carolina over Gonzaga – which seems like a logical pick to make but they are the only two contestants to do it.Of course there are a slew of people who picked North Carolina to win everything, but they have the wrong opponent in the championship game. There were several with Gonzaga winning it all. Reminder: If you get the national champion right it is worth 32 points – the same as all the games in the first round combined. We have said this before, but our advice to you: fill out your bracket backwards.Then there are a lot of pickers, who had North Carolina losing in the semifinals. This is where the Jayhawk pickers got tripped up.But all this is out the window if Frank Martin takes his South Carolina team to championship glory. We will see Monday night.Follow us on Facebook.Follow us on Twitter. Close Forgot password? Please put in your email: Send me my password!
