Looking at March Madness brackets => http://www.logosmarchmadness.com/brackets/ noticed lower seeds chosen over higher (especially in Scholar divisions)

# 4 Packer over # 1 MacArthur

# 12 Wiersbe over # 5 Driscoll

# 9 Swindoll over # 8 Warren

- - - - 

# 7 Kaiser over # 2 Porter

# 11 Blomberg over # 3 Witherington

# 11 Blomberg over # 6 Ladd

# 9 Bock over # 8 McKnight

- - - -

Division 3 had no surprises compared to seeding

- - - -

# 10 Kuyper over # 2 Barrett

# 14 Berkouwer over # 3 Hengel

# 5 Cranfield over # 4 Bauckham

# 14 Berkouwer over # 6 Ramsay

# 10 Kuyper over # 7 Westcott

# 9 Aquinas over # 8 Dunn

Personal voting strategy was library expansion potential.

I own everything I want to own by all these authors already anyway, so I was mainly just voting to help push up the ones I hope others will buy. I voted for Waltke, Packer and Fee because I know them, have studied under them. Others just based on personal preference -- authors that have influenced me like N.T. Wright, Richard Bauckham, Chesterton, Schaeffer, McCheyne, à Kempis.  When it came to ones I had little opinion about or didn't care for, I voted pretty randomly, except I made sure to vote against a couple of ones I have a particular distaste for, who will remain nameless. The hardest vote of all for me was having to eliminate Torrance in the first round, but I picked Bauckham over him.

I'm still hoping Wright catches up to Lloyd-Jones in this round and am sorry to see Packer losing to Carson but I figured it would be inevitable. Wright vs. Carson in the final round would a be much more interesting matching than Lloyd-Jones vs. Carson. Carson would beat Lloyd-Jones hands down.

I don't see why. There are far more titles from Lloyd-Jones and Wright that would interest me at a 75% discount than there are from Carson. Hopefully my fellow voters will agree! Big Smile

Nothing against Lloyd-Jones, but why is getting more votes than N.T. Wright is simply befuddling me.

I voted for the one guy that lost during the first round, only to have my other vote shut down for fouls in the second…..

Of course the sinking question in the back of my mind is ...Why does it matter?
