D1 Playoff Bracket Contest - 2014

Post  Tuesday and Friday on Mon Mar 03, 2014 5:39 pm

Here's the D1 Boys' Playoff Bracket Contest.

You get 2 points for each Prelim winner. 4 points for each Quarterfinal winner. 8 points for each Semifinal winner and 16 points for picking the Champion.

You also receive underdog winner points. For example if you pick #10 to beat #7 you get 2 points for the game winner and an additional 3 points for a #10 beating a #7. The underdog point system continues right until the Championship game.

Tie - Breaker - Please list the total amount of points scored in the Championship game with your entry.

The deadline for entering is by 6:59 pm sharp !!!! Tuesday night when all the prelim games tap off. If your entry is time stamped 7:00 or after then it is null and void.

As my youngest daughter used to say to my son when he went off to his athletic contests in his youth:

"Gooooooo Luck !!"

PS - Winner will receive...... Haven't decided yet......... Maybe Tulliver can help me out here  Very Happy

Come on T@F. Step up to the plate.

Post  GNG on Tue Mar 04, 2014 7:34 am

Who wants to be in a contest with no prize? Sad 

I say let's finally hold T@F ACCOUNTABLE.

T@F HAS to BUY lunch for the winner. I realize you are allergic to picking up a tab, but with all the money you have saved on your wardrobe {free shirts}, and all the money you have saved over dining {free seafood} this season, you surely could pick up ONE measely lunch tab.

You could share all your sports knowledge with the lucky winner and when that 30 seconds is up I will come in and make the rest of the lunch MEMORABLE or should I say REMORABLE for the winner. Shocked 

Come on T@F , don't just be a taker. Be a giver. I love you

Post  Tuesday and Friday on Tue Mar 04, 2014 12:24 pm

There is a rumor going around a person, WHO FINISHED DEAD LAST in the Final Standings contest, is squawking some verbiage my way.

Well, I just treat that verbiage as any other I DIDN'T HEAR from people in the stands this season that know about 7 to 9 % of the rules of basketball  Wink 

Enough for trivial matters.

Prelims:

Central over Concord
Exeter over South - A healthy Holler makes all the difference.
Lond over Salem - This game will be very close.
Memorial over BG in a razor sharp finish.
Trinity over Alvirne
Bedford over Pinkerton
Merrimack over West
Spaulding over Winny

Quarterfinals

Central over Exeter

Lond over Memorial in 7 OTs. Maughn scores 65 points. Lancer concession stand runs out of hot dogs and starts selling Lobster rolls.

Trinity over Bedford - There is no bigger mental obstacle in D1 than the Bulldogs having to go to the McHugh Gym in a cauldron of basketball playoff pressure.

Merrimack over Spaulding


Semifinals

Central over Londonderry - I will keep a low profile in this game. I will be unassumingly on corner baseline on a white horse wearing a Knight's outfit with full armor with a 7 foot Lance and with my Londonderry basketball tee shirt.

Trinity over Merrimack in the game of the tournament. Every year there is THE game of the tournament. This is the one. Close, emotional and intense. Trinity survives this game because they have more players who can score.


Ship

Central over Trinity - Trinity is hoping some team gets Central before the Ship as opposed to "We want them one more time." Not a good mental outlook if you're a Pioneer fan. Central will benefit from the bigger Lundholm floor. Some Pioneer fans are hoping the different shooting background will upset the Little Green visual shooting mojo. I've now used the word hope twice to describe Trinity when playing Central for a 3rd time. That's not good Karma for the Pioneers. It is good Karma for the Little Green.

Central 68 Trinity 60

Winning entry.

Post  GNG on Tue Mar 04, 2014 5:32 pm

Winner gets lunch at Carmens restaurant. T@F said he will buy, Very Happy 

Central ALOT Concord a little Embarassed 
Trinity 90 Alvirne 42. I got a better chance of getting a date with that hot chick from Modern Family then Alvirne has of winning this game. Sleep 
Merrimack has a ZERO percent chance of losing this game. That's right ZERO. Same old West with off court PROBLEMS.
Salem 54 Londonderry 52. Upset special since I can't go against my boy Migs in his game.
BG 87 Memorial 86. My head says one thing. My heart says another. I love you  I love you 
Exeter 70 South 62. buoy oh buoy oh buoy. cheers 
Bedford 56 Pinkerton 52. Great they get to go to Trinity.
Spaulding 65 Winnie 63. Upset number 2.

Central 76 Exeter 74. Holler drops 40 in a nailbiter.
Trinity 64 Bedford 58. This is Bedford's house of horrors. They STRUGGLE mightily at TRINITY.
BG 68 Salem 52. Game 2 much easier then game one.
Merrimack 80 Spaulding 61. Mack waltzes into Durham.

Central 75 BG 70. Think Doc is sleeping better knowing Boykins is not walking thru that door.
Trinity 65 Merrimack 58. Nobody plays better at Durham then Carmen.

Trinity 63 Central 62. Last year I said how much G reminded me of Danny Duval. Danny won two at Trinity. G puts his team on his shoulders and has a MONSTER game. Cool

Trinity has a decision to make.

Post  GNG on Sat Mar 08, 2014 10:45 am

People are saying Otis plays if Trinity makes the finals.

Bad move. Sends the wrong message.

BG didn't let Boykins play for the whole tourny.

T@F, your an alum of Trinity. Any thoughts ?

Not T&F but I disagree. If a punishment is determined and served then that's the end of it. Especially if there were no prior history of issues. The Boykins issue was on non-school, legal issue as I recall. Unfortunately, he seems to have a history of not being able to stay out of trouble...unfortunate. In my mind, if it's a school related issue and the school has a policy - well if the policy is enforced and the punishment is served...end of story...

COMPLETELY DISAGREE

Post  Hooper on Sat Mar 08, 2014 11:25 am

With all due respect to the Boykins situation, it was totally different and has nothing to do with this. Equating them is unfair to both

Ryan Otis is a great kid serving a punishment, He has worked at basketball so extremely hard, that if eligible to play, and he wants to play he should play. If he "shouldn't play" in the Championship the school should have suspended him for that too.

Never do anything to send a message. Follow the rules and do the right thing, let the chips fall where they may. Yes if they play him they will take some heat, do the right thing anyway. Trinity's coaches not allowing him to play would be just trying to avoid criticism. Dave Keefe is a way stronger person than that.

Ryan Otis has sacrificed for Trinity (commuting, leaving childhood friends behind, taking a smaller role than at MV, $, etc etc) To do anything that does not honor that commitment would be cowardly. Trinity allows him to play, too good of people not too.

Of course they have to get there first.
