So using my “wisdom of the crowds” methodology, I ended up picking 3 of the Final 4 correctly. The crowd picked Florida, Kansas, Georgetown, and Ohio State. UCLA made it rather than Kansas, hence the picks are not perfect.
This past weekend of games did bump my bracket up from 24th to 15th place in my pool of just over 100 people. Only 1 other person ahead of me has Florida beating Ohio State in the championship game, so if that were to occur, I believe I would finish in second place (though I don’t fully understand the formulas used and guessing is probably risky).
So, 3 more games and we’ll know how smart the crowd was in this experiment.
