It's time to bid farewell to the 2011 edition of our Giant Killers project, where we hope you've had as much fun as we did trying to pick big NCAA upsets over the past month. Before we close up our spreadsheets for good, here's some final accounting and a few lessons.

Peter Keating is a senior writer at ESPN The Magazine, where he covers investigative and statistical subjects. He started writing "The Biz," a column looking at sports business from the fan's point of view, in 1999. He also coordinates the Magazine's annual "Ultimate Standings" project, which ranks all pro franchises according to how much they give back to fans. His work on concussions in football has earned awards from the Deadline Club, the New York Press Club and the Center for the Study of Sport in Society.
