Update: 13:50 Here is the stats update from Locke4God.
Today is going to be really really thin in regards to this update, and I appologize, but not much is shaking out there.
Every single one of the top 16 Brackets picked today's match correctly.. Why the top 16? Well the top 16 represent the those within 2 of the lead in regards to both MAX and current points. So everybody with a 189, 188, or 187 MAX score got this match right, which means the rest of us got not one inch closer to the lead.
But don't worry, because almost everybody else got this match right too, and so simply nothing has really changed in the standings. THE TENSION BUILDS!!!!
What's really interesting to me is that everybody admits that both of these matches are great, and yet, it's a runaway. That brings me back to several round 1 matches where people "couldn't believe" that match X was getting clobbered by match A. Sometimes matches are close, but we all acknowledge one is clearly better. So if you had a tough time picking today's match, hopefully you don't fall too far, and you can look forward to picking those 4 points back up later this round.
Congratulations to Live Together, Die Alone for taking the 2nd Qtr-Final place.
