Oregon, 33rd State
Ohio, 17th State
Jesus = 74; Cross = 74; Messiah = 74; Gospel = 74 (Jesus on the Cross at 33)
*No other state sums to 74 besides Oregon in Ordinal
The first ever Men' tournament, in 1939, won by Oregon, they were the 'Webfoots' back then and not the Ducks.
Webfoots, 33, Oregon, the 33rd State, defeated Ohio State, who lost with 33 points, a number of of sacrifice.
It's interesting that Oregon won in '39 and they're now the Ducks
Also, that '39 championship began in '38.
Notice the total sum of the score was 79-points. 46+33 = 79
The word 'champion' also has a connection to '33'. Perhaps why Oregon, from the 33rd state, the 'Webfoots', won #1.
Gonzaga's next win will be their 35th. Catholic = 35/71
We've cover the '79'.
Remember, the Bracket was announced on March 12, the 71st day of the year.
71 also connects to March Madness.
And Gonzaga has the right Gematria to win a championship eventually. This year is a good year.
And did anyone catch Notre Dame losing with 71? They score 35 in the first quarter too...
Gonzaga will play West Virginia next...
The date of the Game, March 23, has Bulldog numbers. Gonzaga are the 'Bulldogs'.
3/23/17 = 3+23+17 = 43
Last year Villanova won 191-days after the first Jesuit Pope left the United States on the Jesuit Order's birthday, September 27, 2015. Gonzaga is a Jesuit school.
Notice Villanova scored 43 in the second half last year, beating the Tar Heels. Villanova is a Catholic School, related to the Jesuit Order.
Jesus = 74
Christ = 77
Christian = 47*
The score was 74-74 with 4.7 left, before 'Big Smooth's game winning 3. See last year's work if you have not.
ALSO, since this is the 79th tournament, let's watch for #22.
*The date of this post is the 79th day of the year.
We'll see who bows out in the Sweet 16.
