My mascots system has not been stellar. I took big hit in the first round when my upset-special, West Virginia, went down in the first round. In fact, the entire Midwest Region is a total loss. In that region, there were only three wins – total, and none in the second round.
The mascot system has got me eight of the 16 teams into the third round. Three of my elite eight teams are already gone. Three of my final four teams are still alive, and I had West Virginia in the championship. It is clear that this bracket is not going to shock the world.
Here is the updated Sweet 16:
Wildcats def. Cardinals, Spartans def. Jayhawks. In this region, the Michigan State Spartans would emerge in the Final Four.
Boilermakers def. Huskies, Tiger vs. Tiger is a draw, the higher seed are the Memphis Tigers. I’ll go with Memphis into the Final Four
Muskateers def. Panthers, Blue Devils def. Wildcats. The Duke Blue Devils emerge in the Final Four.
Tar Heels def. Bulldogs, Sooners def. Orange. The Tar Heels win the region.
Blue Devils def. Tar Heels, Spartans def. Tigers. Blue Devils are the national champions.
