2009 NCAA Bracket: Round 1

Congratulations to J. Graham, who successfully predicted 7 of the 10 NCAA round 1 upsets to lead the
2009 NCAA Bracket Econbrowser Challenge
and come in ahead of 99.9% of the global ESPN entries. The future for Graham 1 does not look so bright, however, since Wakeforest’s first-round loss blew a pretty big hole in the rest of that nice bracket.

Yours truly predicted zero of those 10 upsets, which puts me in a noble tie for 55th place in our group. Perhaps I can take some comfort in nevertheless staying ahead of President Obama’s prognostications at this point.

But we’ll see who’s still standing after round 2.
