I did say that the strategy I outlined for an NCAA pool was high-risk, and potentially high-reward. Unfortunately, risk is the clear winner right now. West Virginia, which was one of the most undervalued teams in the entire tournament, just lost their first-round game to the University of Dayton. Great news for the Flyers and their fans (like my grandfather, a Dayton native).
But bad news for the Value Bracket, which just lost one of its Elite Eight teams. So far, the Value Bracket is in just the 12th percentile nationally in the ESPN pool.
Ouch. But not a super shock to me.
