Take note of a few things when looking at our reports:

  • “Coin Flip” finished in 947th¬†Place. This is actually a bracket we filled out using the flip of a coin to make the picks.
  • “Dominating Mascot” finished in 975th¬†Place. This is a bracket we filled out picking the mascot we believed would win in a street fight. ¬†NCSU got a huge advantage by being a “Pack” of wolves.
  • President Obama is in 640th¬†Place. (We entered his picks for him as he was too busy to respond to our invite.)

Gontram Architecture’s version of the traditional office pool is unique:

It doesn’t even matter if you know anything about college basketball – trust me, it doesn’t.¬† In fact, an average amount of knowledge seems to be a hindrance as I have not even SNIFFED a prize position in the history of the Pool.

If you missed the Pool this year, please feel free to Register for next year’s Pool by going to our sign-up page. ¬†(Sorry for the additional step, but with well over a thousand contestants, this helps manage our¬†“madness.”)

See you March 2016!
