SECOND CHANCE POOL: Winner take ALL- Reid Porter: 71 players @$5= $355

Congratulations to Patrick Yates (116 points)  who picked 71% of the winners in STANDARD to win first place- and won $408. For comparison, past percentage of winners: 2015- 71%, 2014- 67%, 2013- 71%, 2012- 73%, 2011- 56%, 2010- 82%, 2009-76%, 73% in 2008, 78% in 2007, 70% in 2006, 71% in 2005 and 70% in 2004).

Brandon Madden and Debbie Porter (who roared from nowhere to claim third- she was the only player out of 72 actually pick the Champion- I have never seen that before in this Pool) tied for 2
nd-3rd with 114 points. Madden got second ($170) because his tie breaker was 149 while Debbie ($102) was 126- Brandon was closer without going over.

In the SEEDED bracket, as previously announced, Mark Tom took first place with an exceptionally high 300 points- and $123.00. We know he must be a genius because he also won third place ($30.75) in this Pool with his second entry. And Patrick Yates scooped second (51.25) with a distant 239 points. Tomís point total of 300 was a near record high- but I believe that his 78% winning percentage was a record high. Recent history: 300 in 2015, 341 in 2014, 257 in 2013, 261 in 2012, 276 in 2011, 266 in 2010, 239 in 2009, 270 in 2008, 212 in 2007, 255 points in 2006, 235 in 2005- 189.


Finally, the SECOND CHANCE bracket Reid Porter, 100 total points,  claimed the winner-take-all total prize of $355 by picking both Villanova to win- and by winning the tie breaker:  141 total points while Ron Schmidt, who tied him with 100 points, walks away with nothing since his tie breaker was only 123 points.

BONUS: Analysis from Robert Stern:

Debbie Porter is amazing. Sure she picked Villanova although that team should have been picked by more than one entry. A team which had been #1 in the polls for a couple of weeks. But what is mind boggling is that she picked VCU, Purdue and Indiana in the Final 4. But then her luck changed because the last second shot made by Jenkins allowed Maddens 149 points to beat her out. Before the 3 pointer the total number of points in the game was 148. The off balance 3 pointer by the Tarheels with 4 seconds left allowed Madden to finish in second place when his tiebreaker was under the total..Robert

SECOND CHANCE POOL: Winner take ALL- Kristi Nayquonabe: 62 players @$5= $310

Congratulations to Wendy Beasley (82 points) who picked 67% of the winners in STANDARD to win first place- and $357. For comparison, past percentage of winners: 2013- 71%, 2012- 73%, 2011- 56%, 2010- 82%, 2009-76%, 73% in 2008, 78% in 2007, 70% in 2006, 71% in 2005 and 70% in 2004).

Mark Tom (78 points- $149) and Ron Yeager (77 points- $89) placed a close second and third respectively.

In the SECOND CHANCE bracket, Kristi Nayquonabe takes the $310 prize by picking an 60% of winners. Not one person in this entire 62 person bracket picked UConn to win!

Finally, the SEEDED bracket Ron Schmid carries $87 away as first place finisher without picking UConn to win- Ron's point total of 341 was a record high- 65% winning percentage. Recent history: 257 in 2013, 261 in 2012, 276 in 2011, 266 in 2010, 239 in 2009, 270 in 2008, 212 in 2007, 255 points in 2006, 235 in 2005- 189. Warren Baker placed second while third place finisher is Brent Kremen. Everyone should consider playing in this bracket next year- picking early round upsets is the key.

It is fantastic that we had so many families playing this year. Although both the Doyles and the Porters were shut out this year, the Nayquonabe's did well.
Conroy- 2, Doyle-3, Gately-3, Grady-2, Nayquonabe-3, Porter-5, Schmid- 3, Tom- 3, Wiles- 3 and Yates- 2.

This was a very odd year- with many upsets. Never in NCAA history has a number 7 seed played for the championship! Never in our 19 year history has no one, in any of the three Pools selected the winner. Thanks to all for playing in a crazy year- our 19th year (started in 1996 when all entries were tabulated by hand!). Hope you all had fun. Email me if you have any suggestions for next year.

PRIOR YEAR'S COMMENTARY

 

0

2012- Congratulations to Pete Dole (157 points) who picked 73% of the winners in STANDARD to win first place.  For comparison, past percentage of winners: 2011- 56%, 2010- 82%, 2009-76%, 73% in 2008, 78% in 2007, 70% in 2006, 71% in 2005 and 70% in 2004).

Patrick Yates (133) and Phil Tom (128) placed a distant second and third respectively.

In the SECOND CHANCE bracket,
Thomas Doyle takes the $290 winner-take-all prize by picking an excellent 87% of winners.

Finally, the SEEDED bracket
Matt Conroy carries $105 away as first place finisher without picking Kentucky to win with a respectful 63% winning percentage and 261 points. Recent history: 276 in 2011, 266 in 2010, 239 in 2009, 270 in 2008, 212 in 2007, 255 points in 2006, 235 in 2005- 189. Ron Schmid placed second while third place finisher is Patrick Yates. Interestingly, newcomer Julie Quesada picked a higher percentage (65%) of winners - just in th wrong order. Everyone should consider playing in this bracket next year- picking early round upsets is the key.

2011- Congratulations to Cole Calabro who was the only player out of 65 in STANDARD to pick UConn to win. Cole walks away smiling with $377, even though he picked only 56% of the winners. For comparison, past percentage of winners: 2010- 82%, 2009-76%, 73% in 2008, 78% in 2007, 70% in 2006, 71% in 2005 and 70% in 2004). Truly a tournament of upsets.

Thomas Doyle ($157) and Brian Mohoric ($94) placed a distant second and third respectively.

In the SECOND CHANCE bracket,
Kevin Grady (nice job, son) again was the only player to pick UConn to win and takes the $325 winner-take-all prize.

Finally, the SEEDED bracket
Patrick Yates carries $99 away as first place finisher. No one picked the winner in this bracket- but Yates managed to pick 62% of winners. And his 276 points tops all previous years in recent history: 266 in 2010, 239 in 2009, 270 in 2008, 212 in 2007, 255 points in 2006, 235 in 2005- 189. Rick Jewett ($41) placed second while third place finisher Robert Stern pulled in $15- just enough to cover his entry fees!

4/07/2009-Congratulations to Pete Doyle for picking selecting 76% of the winners - the one point difference between first and second was the closest that I ever recall seeing in this Pool's 15 years. Warren Baker had the misfortune of losing by one point. But his consolation prize is that he also placed second in the Seed bracket. Randy Miles finished third picking 73% of winners. Last year the champ picked 73% of winners (78% in 2007, 70% in 2006, 71% in 2005 and 70% in 2004). The distribution of the pool is listed on the web site.
 
Kevin Grady won the SEEDED bracket easily with a 239 points. Warren Baker placed second (213 points) and while Sam Wyles finished close with 204 points. Last year's winner had 270 points (212 in 2007, 255 points in 2006, 235 in 2005- 189 in 2004).

Special kudos to Carter Kinnier, Pete Doyle and Kevin Grady. These gentlemen acted as "money-drop-of-points."

NEXT YEAR: After 15 years, it is time for a change! After the first week the 64 teams are down to 16. As a consequence, over one-half of the Pool participants are effectively out-of-the-money. Next year we are going to try a way to keep the interest going for everyone. Entry fee will be raised to $15 (for STANDARD only). And a SECOND-CHANCE Pool will be added. When the Sweet 16 is determined, everyone will get to enter another pool, the SECOND CHANCE POOL. Entries will be handled the same way-over the Internet. This time, of course, the pool will have only 16 entries. This will be a separate pool and will in no way relate to the first pool. While the total pool dollars will be smaller, it still gives everyone hope!

 

04/07/08- Congratulations to Doyle Thomas for picking selecting 73% of the winners and all four Final4 participates as well as the eventual winner, Kansas. --  while Dianne Gately placed second with a pick rate of 71%. Chris Nayquonabe finished third with 70% of winners. Last year the champ picked 78% of winners (70% in 2006, 71% in 2005 and 70% in 2004).
 
Sam Arabo won the SEEDED bracket easily with a record 270 points. Ladd Wyles placed second (258 points) and while P Y Yates finished close third with 253 points. Last year's winner had 212 points (255 points in 2006, 235 in 2005- 189 in 2004).

Special kudos to Carter Kinnier and Kevin Grady. These gentlemen acted as "money-drop-of-points." Carter had 25 people in his group while Kevin found 26 participants in the Chicago area (the remaining 29 mailed checks directly to me). Next year we will have a contest between these 2 groups to see who can get more participants- $25 to winner (Carter or Kevin)!

 

04/02/07 Congratulations to Ladd Wyles for picking Florida to repeat while Joe Nayquonabe placed second - both had an outstanding pick rate of 81%. Pete Doyle finished in third with 78% of winners.
 
Brandin Madden won the SEEDED bracket with 212 points. Kevin Grady (good job, son) placed second and there was a tie for third between Brent Kremen and Randy Miles.

 
04/04/06 Reid Porter, with a total of 100 points (70% correct picks), picks up the $216.50 first prize in the Standard Division (60% to winner, 25% to second, and 15% to third place). No one this year picked the winner, Florida although all three top contestants had 2 of the final 4 picked correctly. 4-year old genius Kate Doyle placed second with 90 points (63%)- although I will make the check out to her Dad, Pete. Phil Tom (1) tied with himself (Phil Tom (2)) with 86 points (65%)for third place. Yes, I did predict more winners than Kate (65% vs 63%)- but Kate picked more in the later rounds when more points were awarded.

Phil Tom returns in the SEEDED Division to barely win with 255 points (65%)- Warren Baker debuts with a second place finish, 250 points (62%) while Robert Stern placed third with 201 points (59%).

NEXT YEAR: Next year we are thinking about raising the entry fee by $1 to $11. The extra dollar would go to the person with the dubious honor of finishing last in each division. While it is conceivable that someone might try to "win" last place, the biggest loser would at least recover his/her entry fee. Imagine what would if someone had picked George Mason this year to win, in an attempt to place last-- they might have won. Let me know your thoughts on this idea.

Thanks for playing this year- 2007 will be here sooner than we want. Have a great year...

 

03/19/05: 64 to 32! The Tourney is off to a great start. Only a couple of major upsets (hello, Syracuse; hello, Alabama, hello, LSU--and hello, Kansas). Bucknell wins its first NCAA Tourney game EVER!

In the STANDARD Division, several people got 27 out of the 32 winners correct- a 84% winning percentage- not bad

POINTS GAUGE: It's just a graphic to show how many points a player has already received and how many more possible points he can get. The number in yellow shows how many points the player has now- the number in green shows how many more points the player could accumulate in every entry picked is correct.

PENCIL: Clicking on the pencil in Tournament Standing will show all the players that picked each team of that game. A cool new feature.

I have been updating the Results and the Standing Reports several times daily, and I will continue to do so this weekend. The time and status of the tournament are post at the TOP LEFT on each report so you will know when it was last updated.
 

As most of you know, I sold GRADY's GRILLHOUSE last May (2004). I have had numerous requests to keep the Tourney going, so I am going to do so. I have moved the GRADY'S GRILLHOUSE web page to my personal server- please bookmark this location. Entry forms, rules, standings, will be posted here.

Now-- the problem will be in collecting the entry fee ($10.00 per entry). Those of you who gave your entry checks to Carter Kinnier (mainly Virginia Mason people-- and their friends) can continue to do so. All others will need to mail checks to me:

Chris Grady
2307 Rosemont Place West
Seattle, WA    98199

Phone: (206) 660-8742

I will need to receive these checks prior to Thursday's  (March 17) cut-off deadline.
So please mail checks NOW- and use the web-based entry forms to make your selections after the Sunday, March 13th bracket drawings.

GRADY'S SOLD!

 

05/04/04- GRADY'S served it's last Kelly's Big-K Prime Rib sandwich yesterday,  Tuesday.

I sold GRADY'S to
the owner of the successful Madrona Eatery and Ale House. Burke Shethar, and his crew, are going to extensively renovate GRADYíS and shortly will reopen as the MONTLAKE ALEHOUSE. So, bear with Burke while he creates Montlakeís newest eatery. Remodel should take 4 to 6 weeks. 

I had a lot of fun operating GRADY'S. The time had come in the restaurant life cycle to make some aesthetic changes in order to keep old, and attract new, customers. After nearly 15 years, it is time for new thoughts and new ideas (and new money!!)

I, and all of my staff over the last 15 years, would like to thank you, our customers, for lots of happy memories. (I can be reached at cgrady@grady.com)

 

 

 NCAA BASKETBALL TOURNEY TIME!!

04/06/04- UC wins it all. In the STANDARD DIVISION, Pete Doyle is the first person ever to win, without having picked the tournament champion. But he did pick 70% of all the winners. Outstanding. Brain Hadfield and Robert Desmond tied for second with one point less than Doyle. This year we had 64 entries.

My son, Kevin Grady, picked UConn to win the SEEDED DIVISION. He was the only player in the pool of 14 that picked the eventual winner. His 208 points beat last year's 203 points. Robert Stern finished second, followed by Brent Kremen.

 

03/18/04- Follow results here. Results will be updated by 8AM Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday mornings for the first weekend. I will be traveling to Coos Bay Friday, Saturday, and Sunday to visit my granddaughter. I hope to be able to update this web page remotely-- if it fails, then results for these 3 days will be posted Monday morning.

03/17/03- Click here for the RULES. If any problems come up, what is printed in Rules shall prevail!

04/08/03- SYRACUSE CHAMPS!!! Diane Gately grabbed the Standard Division's first prize of $336! Good job! Jason Thomas took second with Pete Doyle picking up third place.

The Seeded Division was over before the Final Four started- Bill Alberger took the $114 First prize, David Emrich placed second and Scott Tom beat Brent Kremen using the tie-breaker for third place.

TIDBITS: No one picked Syracuse to win it all...Standard was won with 81 points (76%) compared to last year's 128 points (59%), and 2001 of 155 points - 203 points (63%) captured the Seeded first place (last year 245 points (also 63%) was needed)... 96 points were needed to place in the money for the Standard Division while 187 was needed in the Seeded...there were 56 entries in Standard and 19 in Seeded, up from 53 in Standard and 14 in Seeded in 2002.

Bill Alberger wins the Farthest Away Award (although Bill Lakel is currently "on temporary assignment" in Hong Kong), as well as first in Seeded.. they must know something in Washington DC that we don't on the West Coast. Speaking of the coast, we had a couple participants from the Oregon coast, Coos Bay. My son, Kevin (he is going to kill me for saying this) is a Syracuse graduate-and did he pick his own alma mater to go further than the Sweet 16?

Losers...Chuck Pietzsch, a first time participant, managed to get dead last in both brackets: 40% winners in Seeded - only 36% in Standard. All the players this year would love it if Chuck tries again next year.

Thanks for everyone's participation this year. I will look forward to next year's Tourney.

03/13/03-  Below I have copied final final thoughts from last year! Last year we had a total of 67 participants- let's triple that this year-- and triple the prizes!!

Here are some highlights of last year's (2002) contest.

In the Standard Division, Tim Keran's win with 128 points was less than Joe Bosch's 2001 win with 155 points. Tim picked 59% of the games correctly (several people were picked 65% of the games correctly-just the wrong games!!). Reid Porter managed to pick 43% of the games right to score 46 points and finish last in the Standard.

Reid continued to demonstrate his ability in the SEEDED division-he got 93 points and 40% correct-and he maintained his skill level-dead last also in this division. In fact, both of his entries were second to last and last! Interestingly, his buddy, Phil Tom, duplicated this hat trick (minus one) last year-Phil was also last in both divisions in 2001 with 154 points and 54% correct in Seeded and 62 points and 27% in the Standard). Last year Rick Jewett won this division with 228 points and 63% correct while 2002 had Mark Anderson winning with 245 points and 63% correct. Player Brent Kremen had the highest winning percentage, a respectable 70%-but he picked the wrong champ!

Total participants were 67 (53 Standard-14 Seeded) this year- way up from 32 (27 Standard-5 Seeded) .So that's it for 2002. I have awarded Mr. Porter a free burger at GRADY'S for being so nice to the rest of you. I hope so see you at GRADY'S during the Mariner season, as well as the NBA playoffs.

04/07/02- Our March madness ended with happy winners!

Here are some highlights of this year's contest.

In the Standard Division, Tim Keran's win with 128 points was less than Joe Bosch's 2001 win with 155 points.

Interestingly, his buddy, Phil Tom, duplicated this hat trick (minus one) last year-Phil was also last in both divisions in 2001 with 154 points and 54% correct in Seeded and 62 points and 27% in the Standard). Last year Rick Jewett won this division with 228 points and 63% correct while 2002 had Mark Anderson winning with 245 points and 63% correct. Player Brent Kremen had the highest winning percentage, a respectable 70%-but he picked the wrong champ!

Total participants were 67 (53 Standard-14 Seeded) this year- way up from 32 (27 Standard-5 Seeded) .So that's it for 2002. I have awarded Mr. Porter a free burger at GRADY'S for being so nice to the rest of you. I hope so see you at GRADY'S during the Mariner season, as well as the NBA playoffs.

Grady's fans go to catch the culinary game
Grady's is "not a sports bar," owner Chris Grady emphatically states, "except when there's a Husky home game." And I believe him. Young and old were clearly there for the heaping platefuls of the kind of food people used to have time and energy to cook at home, prepared by chef Cindy Thompson. [01:15 a.m. Dec. 21, 2001]
