Default 2017 March Madness Pick 'em - Draft Complete

Since drew24 is not able to run the challenge this year, I'll give it a shot.

I will PM the previous participants to give them the first right of refusal. After 24 hours, I'll open up the remaining slots on a first come first served basis.

Once 8 participants are identified, I'll randomly generate a drafting order. The draft will be a snake-style draft until each CPer has 8 teams. CPers that select a non-tourney team will have the opportunity to re-select a replacement team after the first 64 picks.

Participants:
1. Tilley
2. Trojan97
3. Da_Chief
4. Senator Clay Davis
5. Displaced Flames fan
6. drew24
7. Drake
8. MoneyGuy

The draft order is set:

1. Displaced Flames fan
2. MoneyGuy
3. Tilley
4. Da_Chief
5. drew24
6. Drake
7. Senator Clay Davis
8. Trojan97

I took the list of participants in the order people signed up and identified them with that number. I then generated a list of random numbers in Excel and as the number 1-8 appeared, that participant was identified until all slots were filled.

The draft:

1. Displaced Flames fan - Gonzaga
2. MoneyGuy - Kansas
3. Tilley - North Carolina
4. Da_Chief - Villanova
5. drew24 - Kentucky
6. Drake - Louisville
7. Senator Clay Davis - UCLA
8. Trojan97 - Oregon
9. Trojan97 - Arizona
10. Senator Clay Davis - Baylor
11. Drake - Southern Methodist University
12. drew24 - West Virginia
13. Da_Chief - Duke
14. Tilley - Notre Dame
15. MoneyGuy - Florida
16. Displaced Flames fan - Virginia
17. Displaced Flames fan - Wichita State
18. MoneyGuy - Florida State
19. Tilley - Cincinnati
20. Da_Chief - Iowa State
21. drew24 - Purdue
22. Drake - Wisconsin
23. Senator Clay Davis - Butler
24. Trojan97 - Michigan
25. Trojan97 - St. Mary's
26. Senator Clay Davis - Minnesota
27. Drake - Middle Tennessee
28. drew24 - Miami
29. Da_Chief - Oklahoma State

36. Da_Chief - Seton Hall
37. drew24 - Princeton
38. Drake - Michigan State

Thanks for running it Tilley. This is probably my favourite pool that we do on CP each year.

Since CofR hasn't responded, MoneyGuy is in and we are set. I'll generate the draft order shortly and post it in the OP. I'll PM the first team and get the draft underway.

My plan is to not have a specific time limit to make a pick, however if drafting takes too long, I'll have to rethink that.

If we had started this yesterday my pick would've been different.

I have to go with my heart. As much as I know this pick will jinx them, I have to go with my alma mater.
