Update: 16:30 Here are Locke4God's Stats update for today.
And we have a rout. Of course most of us might have expected this, but we have the pleasure of looking forward to a great match in the 4th Round between LOST'S very first episode, and it's very last (so far). That one will throw up some fireworks, but as far as today goes, we have hit 100%!!!!! 100% of today's top 23 Brackets picked "The Incident" to move on, and those top 23 Brackets represent everybody who remains within 3 of the lead.
3 - Brackets will still maintain a share of the lead with 85 Points (189 MAX) after today
5 - More brackets sit just off the podium in 4th place with 84 Points (188 MAX)
3 - Brackets will tie for 9th at 83 Points (187 MAX)
12 - final brackets will round out the top 23 with 82 Points (186) MAX and just 3 off the current lead. Actually 1 of those final 12 has only 178 MAX points, and so you're really looking at a top 22.
And there are plenty of Brackets that are hanging out with 80 or 81 Points, or in the 184 or 185 MAX point area, and those still have a shot. It really depends on what you have remaining, and if you've taken any chances that might pay off.
As we mentioned in previous updates, there is likely to be a big upset somewhere along the road, and we know there are going to be several close matches remaining. Those are where you're going to have a big opportunity going into the next round.
Congratulations to the Pilot for taking the 5th Qtr-Final place.
