ACC Pick Em
Well, not a single person picked NC State to win. Only one entry had both finalists correct- David Watson. And it was just enough to get him to finish tied with Daryl at 10-4. The tiebreaker was whoever submitted their entry first, and Dave-O beat out Daryl by a little over two hours.
Paulie got with Dave-O on his prize. He selected the $25 Cracker Barrel card. Daryl gets the $15 Panera card.
We will also be doing an NCAA Tournament Pick Em. The Selection Show is scheduled for March 16 at 7:00.
Currently, the Cards are a projected 2-seed in the Fort Wayne Regional with Maryland the projected 1-seed.
Happy Tuesday and Go Cards!
