Today in the Bay's Bracketology

UPDATE Monday, March 28, 6:35 a.m.: The NCAA Tournament may not be over, but our game is. All of our picks are out of the game, so these standings are final.

  • Brent: 56 pts
  • Mike: 53 pts
  • Christina: 52 pts
  • Laura: 47 pts
  • Scott: 30 pts

---------------------------

UPDATE Sunday, March 27, 7:20 a.m.: The upset of Ohio State hasn't completely upset our standings, but it has certainly made things interesting. When the Final Four is set today, it could end with a new leader.

  • Brent: 56 pts
  • Mike: 53 pts
  • Christina: 52 pts
  • Laura: 47 pts
  • Scott: 30 pts

---------------------------

UPDATE Friday, March 25, 7:30 a.m.: The first half of round three was not kind to Brent, so the rest of the Today in the Bay crew is gaining ground. Here's where we stand after the first half of the Sweet 16.

  • Brent: 50 pts
  • Laura: 47 pts
  • Christina: 46 pts
  • Mike: 44 pts
  • Scott: 30 pts

---------------------------

UPDATE Monday, March 21, 6:19 a.m.: Brent may be holding onto the lead, but Laura and Christina are close behind. With three points going to every right answer in round three, it's still anyone's game. Well...maybe not Scott's.

  • Brent: 50 pts
  • Laura: 47 pts
  • Christina: 43 pts
  • Mike: 41 pts
  • Scott: 30 pts

---------------------------

UPDATE Saturday, March 19, 9:15 p.m.: Brent seems to know something that even our pros over at CSN Bay Area don't. He picked Butler to beat Pittsburgh. That's enough to put him ahead in our game. Two points per right answer this round.

  • Brent: 40 pts
  • Laura: 37 pts
  • Christina: 35 pts
  • Mike: 33 pts
  • Scott: 24 pts

---------------------------

UPDATE Friday, March 18, 11:20 p.m.: Round one is in the books and now we know for sure that Laura and Brent did not collaborate when they made the brackets. Laura's in the lead, but the rest of the team is close behind. Stay tuned for round two updates.

  • Laura: 27 pts
  • Brent: 26 pts
  • Mike: 25 pts
  • Christina: 23 pts
  • Scott: 22 pts

---------------------------

UPDATE Friday, March 18, 7:15 a.m.: We laughed at Mike when he told us UCLA was going to win it all, but maybe he has some skills we just don't know about. After one day of games, he's leading the pack.

  • Mike: 14 pts
  • Brent: 13 pts
  • Laura: 13 pts
  • Christina: 11 pts
  • Scott: 9 pts

---------------------------

It happens every March. Those empty brackets look so simple, so enticing -- almost like a family tree -- waiting to be filled in with hopeful victors. We'll pencil some in for emotional ties, others after cold-hearted analysis.

All things being equal, you never know how the NCAA men's basketball tournament will turn out -- and that's the fun. You could have not watched a game all season, then pick your winners based on mascots or numerology or pulled from your alumni hat ... and you'd still have a chance to beat your friends and pick the champion.

Now, you can compete against the Today in the Bay team, too, using CSNBayArea.com's kick-apps "Bracket Challenge." Let's call it a "friendly."
