Flashing back to September 4, 2004, and the Luau tailgate prior to Michigan's 43-10 victory over Miami of Ohio. You'll remember it as the day where you thought the Matt Gutierrez era was commencing at Michigan, and instead you got the start of four years of Chad. I left the photo in its original, off-center state to remind everyone of how Gar took photos of our group while inebriated. The rest of the photos from that day and recaps from Various sources are here.
Best tournament ever? Nope, 1989 was.
But this one was pretty good. Nice ebb and flow to our brackets this year too. Only two people had Villanova, but neither placed (one was me!) due to the remainder of their bracket being a pile of shit.
1st, 2nd and 3rd were all tied at 73 points, and the tiebreaker (most correct picks overall) was only able to separate 1st and 2nd place. 2nd and 3rd had to be resolved by the additional tiebreaker of total points scored in the final game.
For those that crumbled up their brackets after day one...here's your reminder to never give up. Our third place guy came out of nowhere, getting three of the final four after only having 19 of the first 32. Dude had the 'Cuse. Crazy....
Anyway, congrats to the winners. Time to go back to concentrating on football folks.
