More commentary:
- Of the 50 brackets in our group, 4 picked Virginia and they finished 1-4 which to me seems a bit champ heavy of a scoring system.  
- That's right Amber Lavin you picked the champ but you didn't win anything, Sorry.  Tell you what, there is still an Orange Vanilla Coke if you like. (the official tournament drink?) 
- Eric was the only one to pick 3 of the Final Four.  5 People picked 2 of the Final Four.
- Only Tyler B picked Auburn
- No one picked both teams in the Final
