Welcome to March Madness 2017!!

UPDATE: 4/4/2017 10:10
I performed a coin toss (see below) witnessed by Boke's Jokes and the result was "heads". TARHEEL_BC_2 won the first coin toss tie breaker. I assume I_just_guessed will be checking my math, hopefully I didn't goof up. :)

Tyler_Byrne__Michelle_W_ won the most correct picks title. Five people had North Carolina and all of them had total final game points that were over the total of the game. The tie breaker rules had to be invoked. We made history this year! The tie breaker made it back to the 1st round of 32 games and there is still a tie between TARHEEL_BC_2 and I_just_guessed. They each have 24 picks correct and were tie in all previous rounds. So, as the rules state, I will flip a coin to determine the winner. There's nobody at work now, so I'll have to do this later. I should be able to get a tourney player/entry to witness the flip. Heads and tails will be determined by order in the standings as listed so TARHEEL_BC_2 will be heads and I_just_guessed will be tails. The tie breaker is the only thing not automated and I had to check things by hand - what a pain! :) Please double check my counting.
