PlayUltimate May Madness - the winner!

Wisconsin beat Colorado yesterday in the 2007 UPA College Championships - open division final - 15-7.

In our own little fantasy bracket though the winner has not yet been announced. There were more than 30 entries into the fantasy bracket contest, but only one can take home the prize. First, the winning bracket...

PreQuarters:
Oregon vs Ohio State - Oregon 15 - Ohio State 11
Texas vs Indiana - Texas 15 - Indiana 9
Carleton vs North Carolina - Carleton 15 - North Carolina 10
Pittsburgh vs Georgia - Georgia 15 - Pittsburgh 12

Quarters:
Wisconsin vs Oregon - Wisconsin 15 - Oregon 10
Stanford vs Texas - Stanford 15 - Texas 10
Colorado vs Carleton - Colorado 16 - Carleton 14
Florida vs Georgia - Florida 15 - Georgia 11

Semis:
Wisconsin vs Stanford - Wisconsin 15 - Stanford 11
Colorado vs Florida - Colorado 15 - Florida 13

Finals:
Wisconsin vs Colorado - Wisconsin 15 - Colorado 11
compared with the actual bracket of...
PreQuarters:
Oregon vs Ohio State - Oregon 15 - Ohio State 12
Texas vs Indiana - Texas 15 - Indiana 13
Carleton vs North Carolina - Carleton 15 - North Carolina 10
Pittsburgh vs Georgia - Georgia 15 - Pittsburgh 13

Quarters:
Wisconsin vs Oregon - Wisconsin 15 - Oregon 9
Stanford vs Texas - Stanford 15 - Texas 11
Colorado vs Georgia - Colorado 15 - Georgia 10
Florida vs Carleton - Florida 16 - Georgia 14

Semis:
Wisconsin vs Stanford - Wisconsin 15 - Stanford 6
Colorado vs Florida - Colorado 15 - Florida 10

Finals:
Wisconsin vs Colorado - Wisconsin 15 - Colorado 7
As you can see the only difference in the entire bracket was the reversal of Georgia and Carleton in the Quarterfinal matchups. Even most of the scores were within 1-2 points. Very impressive.

SO, the winner of the 2007 PlayUltimate May Madness Fantasy Bracket is Tom Bassett of Needham High School.

Tom has won a copy of the Ultimate: the First Four Decades book, sponsored by Luke Johnson and CHS Ultimate.

i dont know how to get into legitimate contact with the upa, but if they expect youth outreach, developement in general and all of the revolution jazz, they need to give me a writeup within maybe a month of easterns...seriously it takes maybe 5 minutes, or were any upa writers there?

Folks at the UPA are really accessible and all our emails are online - www.upa.org - go to the bottom left and click on "contact us". Ryan John can answer any questions about write-ups and media. I can answer any questions about Youth Development.

If you have questions or ideas on how to improve programs, it is much more efficient to email us directly rather than post questions to blogs or newsgroups - especially those that aren't maintained by anyone at the UPA. Though I do love a little PlayUltimate with my morning coffee. :)

Thanks!
