    MULLIGAN GAME
    GAME--------------------------WINNER----------------SCORE-------------PENALTIES(if draw)
    Brazil - Chile------------------- Brazil -------------------- 3-2 ---------------

    Notes:
    Chile to upset Brazil. Chile hassles Brazil and gets a goal on a turnover. Brazil gets frantic. David Luiz gets a red card.
    Uruguay defense keeps Columbia in check. Godin header. Penalties to Uruguay.

    Mulligan version:
    Gary Medel red card. Brazil takes advantage of the extra space on the counter.

    Sooooo close (2 inches) to being the only one to correctly predict Chile as the winner.

    Did get "Chile hassles Brazil and gets a goal on a turnover" correct.

    Hanging on by a Mulligan!

    Several contestants correctly predicted the predictable: all 8 Group winners won their matches. I'll go over the predictions to assess who was most accurate.

    In the meantime, you have a couple of days to get your predictions in for the quarterfinals!
