Sweet 16, 2nd Half: Comment-time!

Here's how the 1st half of the Sweet 16 round went down:

Muno Regional:

  • (4) Dusty Baker leads (1) rbnlaw by 3:41
  • (3) S Dittmore leads (7) jmk by 2:34

Robot Regional:

  • (1) Quad lead (4) Erin by 4:15
  • (3) Jason leads (2) Greg NoPhoto by 0:02

Sock Monkey Regional:

  • (4) Loney Fan leads (8) Fanerman by 1:56
  • (3) J Steve leads (2) Keven C by 0:21

Mr X Regional:

  • (1) Josh leads (5) Mr C by 1:47
  • (2) Neeebs leads (6) Betsy by 0:15

Remaining Questions:

  1. Will Neeebs, J Steve, and particularly Jason hang on to their tenuous half-time leads?
  2. Will the Robot Regional continue to go according to seed?
  3. Will archrivals Loney Fan and QuadSevens continue their collision course to the finals?
  4. Who will win the Fan-bowl (Loney Fan vs Fanerman)?
  5. Will EK make another mistake in scoring?

Find out the answers to all these questions in the comments section!

In

Mr. Customer said...

In! Now for the wait.

Jason said...

Question 1(c) answered, thank you very much.

Erin said...

Pointless, but I'm in anyway.

Fred's Brim said...

why did I suspend my star guard for getting the AD's daughter pregnant?

fanerman said...

ahhhh

J. Steve said...

Elite 8, here I come!

Dusty Baker said...

In

Neeebs said...

Tik Tok.

Loney Fan said...

Moving on to the next roud.

Neeebs said...

Betsy, you are a gamer. I want you on my team on the next competition.

Greg said...

damn!

Loney Fan said...

That kill was for Fred's Brim.

Greg said...

once again the gods have it in for me. First with my multiple draws in the deltalina game and now pitting me against jason in the second round who seems to be hitting that F5 every 5 minutes! Ah well, good on you Jason.

Jason said...

@ GregNoPhoto - You were certainly a worthy opponent this round. Scores of :02 and :05 are not my usual forte. Good game.

Dusty Baker said...

The Sweet 16 round is listed as running through the 24th, and the Elite 8 is listed as starting on the 24th. Is this overlap on purpose, or a mistake?

*cracks knuckles, ready for next round*

Fred's Brim said...

thanks, LF!





PS can I get Final Four tickets if you get there?

Mr. Customer said...

MCSU making a run to start the second half, but I fear my opponent may just be toying with me.

jmk said...

better to bow out now that go down by 5 hours to Dusty B in the next round!

Eric Karros said...

DB 10.44am - Yes, Wednesday is an overlap day on purpose, bridging the adjacent rounds. Keeps you on your toes.

QuadSevens said...

Swish!

Steve Dittmore said...

Okay Dusty... the battle for Arkansas pride is on.

Early odds have you winning by 90 minutes.

Betsy said...

If only i wasnt on vacation I would have been quicker on the draw *sigh* @Neeebs take 'em down my friend! We'll tag team for the next competition!

Eric Karros said...

I think only one game is still undecided...

Eric Karros said...

By my calculation, at 12:24 the Elite Eight will be decided one way or another...

Dusty Baker said...

Thx for clarification, EK.

Man, you're relentless! This is a grueling competition.

fanerman said...

=(

What did I ever do to you!!!!

Eric Karros said...

Mr C's got 56 more minutes to wait out.

Tick, tock, tick, tock...

Mr. Customer said...

Ok, full-court pressure time.

But can we keep it up for 50 minutes?

Eric Karros said...

BTW I just sent an email to Josh saying "Where the hell are you!?! Check the blog!!!".

If he doesn't reply in the next few minutes I'll give him a call.

Neeebs said...

MC: What would the King of Aragon do in a time like this? Send out ships?

Eric Karros said...

I just got off the phone with Josh. He's logging in now and should be commenting shortly.

Phew! He almost missed this post completely!

Eric Karros said...

Just kidding, of course.

Mr. Customer said...

@EK,

He is a slippery one, I wouldn't put it past him.

Mr. Customer said...

@Neeebs,

W.W.A.A.D? (What would Alfonso V of Aragon Do?)

Annex the Kingdom of Naples? Sack Marseilles?

Sounds fun, but not helpful at this juncture.

Josh S. said...

Daaaaaaaaaaamn.

Josh S. said...

Whew.

Mr. Customer said...

Well played, sir. Killed by the lunch break.

Eric Karros said...

Josh swoops in with 25 minutes to spare (I swear I didn't really call or email him).

Elite eight is set!

Dusty Baker said...

When you're fresh out of ideas, sacking Marseilles is always preferred, whether it may ultimately prove to be useful or not.

Mr. Customer said...

@Dusty

I've got some free time on my hands, I'll give it a go.

Josh S. said...

No lunch break. I'm at home again. I told you that if I was at work, it would have been no contest.

Keven C said...

Bows out gracefully. Go Sock Monkey!

rbnlaw said...

Just so everyone knows, I did not concede. I am now posting so there will be an official margin of victory. Large as it may be.

Give me Saxon kings, or give me Pliny The Elder.
