Round 3 hurt a bit more than we had hoped it would. According to points gained so far we are still in the to 2% of brackets featured on ESPN Tournament Challenge but due to the fact that we lost Virginia We would anticipate that number to go down a bit. We really need Notre Dame to pull out a win in the sweet 16 and hopefully be the Kentucky Killers we think they can be. Let’s look at what we called and what we have predicted for the sweet 16.

 Round 3:

Midwest

Kentucky Umbreon vs Cincinnati Zoroark – Winner Umbreon

West Virginia Boufalant vs Maryland Carracosta – Winner Carracosta

We knew this would be a close call and it was… Maryland let us down here.

Texas Miltank vs Notre Dame Scrafty – Winner Scrafty

It wasn’t against Texas but we got the right pick.

Wichita State Luxio vs Kansas Archeops – Winner Luxio

Wichita is scary good.. Beware ND.. Beware.

West

Wisconsin Linoone vs Oregon Farfetch’d –Winner Linoone

Arkansas Emboar vs Harvard Jynx – Winner Jynx

We still think had Harvard would have won this one as well. Had it been a Nidoking v Emboar we would have picked Nidoking. Emboar really just sucks.

Xavier Ditto vs Georgia St Meowth – Winner Ditto

Beware the Ditto!

VCU Gogoat vs Arizona Delphox – Winner Delphox

East

Villanova Meowstic vs NC State Hoard of Poocheyenas – Winner Poocheyenas

Dear Piccolo Girl… We warned you.. think of the tears that could have been prevented had you believed us.

Northern Iowa Liepard vs Louisville Fletchinder – Winner Liepard

We knew this one would be close but we picked against the Fletchinder… What scares us most is Louisville is playing much more like a Tallonflame and could go really far.

Providence Banette vs Oklahoma Cacturn – Winner Cacturn

Georgia Granbull vs Virginia Escavalier- Winner Escavalier

This is the game that hurt us most… We still think Virginia would have gotten Georgia, but since we were wrong about the Michigan State game we picked this one wrong. Michigan now has an easier road to the final four… watch out as Michigan might make a run.

South

Duke Houndoom vs St Johns Delibird – Winner Houndoom

Utah Hawlucha vs Georgetown Stoutland – Winner Hawlucha

LA Ursaring vs UAB Dragonair – Winner Ursaring

Iowa Honchkrow vs Gonzaga Granbull – Winner Granbull

Our south Bracket is still perfect… how’s yours?

Now… We want to be VERY CLEAR ABOUT THIS… WE ARE NOT GIVING UP ON OUR ORIGINAL BRACKET!!! WE STILL HAVE FAITH IN OUR PICKS AND WILL CONTINUE TO UPDATE POSTS AS THE TOURNEY PROGRESSES..

However… we wanted to take a look at how battles and the bracket would change if we battled down through the remaining teams. So we also entered the ESPN Second Chance Bracket. Here is the current sweet 16 match ups and our predictions for the current games.

bracket 2nd chance

That’s right… we still have Notre Dame in the Finals but we believe based on Pokémon match up that now they have the best chance to face Gonzaga… and they will lose. This doesn’t bode well for our actual bracket but it should lead to an exciting end to March Madness.
