            Updates on our brackets...still 4 games left in the First Round:

            To set the stage, First Round Bonus is at:
            Bonus 1 (total goals) - 20
            Bonus 2 (total saves) - 224
            Bonus 3 (total OT mins) - 15:38 (would be rounded up to 16 if no OT games today)

            1. SweeneyHawksHockey vs. 16. gochiefs

            SHH up on gochiefs 12-6 after the games yesterday. SHH and gochiefs each have the same picks today except for the DU-BC game, so SHH will have either a 9 or 3 point lead before bonus is calculated.

            Bonus 1: SHH - 42, gochiefs -45
            Bonus 2: SHH - 448, gochiefs - 424
            Bonus 3: SHH - 20, gochiefs - 30

            8. FS23 vs. 9. Laker Dude

            Both contestants went 3-1 yesterday, and are tied at 9 points apiece. Both picked identically except for the BC (FS23) - DU (LD) game. Whoever gets that game correct will have a 3 point lead heading into the bonus.

            Bonus 1: FS23 - 41, LD - 29
            Bonus 2: FS23 - 361, LD - 200
            Bonus 3: FS23 - 35, LD - 10

            2. Pump It Up vs. 15. 1988

            PIU leads 9-3 after day one. PIU and 1988 each have identical picks for today, with the exception of the Harvard (1988) - UNO (PIU) game. As a result, PIU will have either a 12 or 6 point lead before factoring in the bonus.

            Bonus 1: PIU - 49, 1988 - 44
            Bonus 2: PIU - 468, 1988 - 441
            Bonus 3: PIU - 45, 1988 - 0

            7. irishstate vs. 10. 97osu

            Both competitors went 3-1 yesterday, so are tied with 9 points each. They have two different winners in today's games, so we could be tied or one may have a 6 point edge before factoring in bonus.

            Bonus 1: irishstate - 39, 97osu - 45
            Bonus 2: irishstate - 368, 97osu - 430
            bonus 3: irishstate - 24, 97osu - 92

            3. NU_Husky vs. 14. all bear

            all bear is up 12-6 after getting all 4 games right yesterday. They only differ on one game today, so all bear will have either a 3 or 9 point lead heading into the bonus.

            Bonus 1: NU - 29, all bear - 48
            Bonus 2: NU - 465, all bear - 400
            Bonus 3: NU - 22, all bear - 15

            6. FiveHole12 vs. 11. drshoen

            drshoen leads 9-6 after yesterday. They have two different predictions today, so the lead could sway to FH12 by 3, or drshoen could increase his lead to 9 before bonus.

            Bonus 1: FH12 - 32, drshoen - 42
            Bonus 2: FH12 - 416, drshoen - 572
            Bonus 3: FH12 - 12, drshoen - 24

            4. Siouxfaninseattle vs. 13. darker98

            darker98 got all 4 games correct, and holds a 12-6 lead on SFIS. They have 1 game picked differently today, so darker 98 will have either a 3 or 9 point lead heading into the bonus.

            Bonus 1: SFIS - 45, darker98 - 53
            Bonus 2: SFIS - 435, darker98 - 280
            Bonus 3: SFIS - 50, darker98 - 38

            5. Driftryder vs. 12. kpd52

            Both players went 3-1 yesterday, and are tied at 9-9. They have picked two games differently today, so we could remain tied, or one could have a 6 point lead prior to bonus.

            Bonus 1: Driftryder - 38, kpd52 - 37
            Bonus 2: Driftryder - 335, kpd52 - 459
            Bonus 3: Driftryder - 26, kpd52 - 0

                        So you're saying I have a chance?

                          You need to get the 2 semifinals correct, and SFIS needs to get them both incorrect. If you go 2-0 and SFIS goes 1-1, SFIS takes it by a tenth of a percentage point. Pump It Up is also in contention. You need PIU to go 1-1 or 0-2. If PIU goes 2-0, you cannot catch him.

                              I am sure that they will be wringing their hands and have many restless nights worrying about your epic strategy for the Frozen Four.
