March Madness Tournament Pick em!

Any interest for a Redemption bracket pool? I can host on Yahoo and was planning on doing standard scoring (i.e. 1, 2,4,8, etc for each win)

If you follow the link you will be able to fill out a bracket for the ncaab tournament by clicking on the team you want to advance each round. Overall, the goal is to accumulate the most points throughout all of the rounds which give increasing weight to correct picks (e.g. correct final four picks are worth 16 points vs 1 point for first round picks). The teams are ranked from 1-16 with 1 being the best .

If you pick every game correctly I will personally write you a check for $ 1bajillion*.

*Offer void in TX, HI and other states where 1 bajillion is not a number.

Five Six Seven games in and only two one players (myself and joseph) have no one has a chance at a perfect bracket!

My $1 bajillion looks definitely safe for another year.

Go Loyola-Chicago!

Well despite being in 9th place currently, I still have the highest potential points. Just need Xavier to not get upset tonight... ::)

It looks like we are mirror brothers or maybe mirror cousins. I am currently in third, but with the third lowest potential points!  Already lost both teams I picked to make the championship game.

At this point, I think going forward they should just grab 64 teams and randomly assign them spots in the bracket...
