Let's make this into a prediction contest... we can use the same scoring as the EPL prediction contest.
Rules: Rank the 8 candidates in the order you think they will finish in the tournament. If you have a person at X, and they finish at Y, you get (ABS(XY))/2 points. Lowest score wins.
Tiebreaker: For i = 1 to 8: Compare the ith pick for both players. If they are the same, loop. If they are not the same, whomever picked the person that finished higher in the final standings wins.
