Currently Ranked 1,142,571st

But - 7 of my 8 Elite Eight teams are still in it. I feel okay about this.

I really shouldn't of picked Virginia, though.

Sorry I beat you. Thanks for the gift. BTW, I just guessed weighted by rankings. I can't believe my good luck so far. I doubt it will hold out the further in we get. I do admit o a Los Angeles bias in choosing UCLA to win, and I'm sure it will be my downfall in the end.

Linguistic note: "Shouldn't of" is becoming more common, because of its sound, over the originally correct "shouldn't have." The "of" is replacing the "have" in informal discourse more often when it follows the negative contraction, as here. People will write "Should've," but then switch to "Shouldn't of."

Whether the formal correctness of "have" will win out over "of" in the long run is intriguing.

I spoke with a guy who has 14 of the Sweet Sixteen still active, with his missing two, Texas and Wisconsin, going out in the next round anyway. He has UCLA over Ohio State in the finals. He could end up with a monster bracket.
