    Figured I'd put this here since some of you college basketball lovers might not see it at the 'Fantasy Sports Central' forum.

    Yahoo default scoring system

    Pick 'Find a Pool', then 'Join a Private Pool' at the link below

    College Basketball Tourney Pick'em - Yahoo Sports

    Group ID: 21279
    Password: potato


    Notes:
    1) Please use your PF.com username for your bracket name, or as part of your bracket name. It's more fun when everyone knows who is who.
    2) Don't forget to enter the Quicken Loans Billion Dollar Bracket Challenge.
    $1B for a perfect bracket (good luck with that!)
    $100K to each of the top 20 brackets at Yahoo overall

    Quicken Loans Billion Dollar Bracket


    Question:
    Since starting this pool in 2007 it has been PF.com members only. There have been a number of requests over the years by forum members to allow in their family members and friends.

    Are friends and family something you would like allowed?

    I just use Drath's number (555-IAM-ADORK) whenever I join something.

    Yeah, the whole "you gotta agree to receive spam texts" thing is a deal breaker. What a silly thing to do for Yahoo.

    If I win the billion dollars, I will buy everyone at pf.com a free drink.

    Yahoo does an excellent job of filtering spam email so I expect them to keep a tight lid on my number. Not doing so would alienate countless millions.

    Besides, I rarely get spam texts...probably 5 or less over the past year. Not sure exactly why, but I haven't received any since transferring my number from Sprint to AT&T in November.

    I'd settle for winning $100K and not buying the robot :smile:

    This was always my plan if I came into a lot of money. We'd do a few PF.com nights, I would pay airfare and people could fly in and hang in the Pistons box.

    Of course, I didnt come into a lot of money, and the team is bad, so whatever ...

    It's the thought that counts...unless you're JD...then we need results.

    If I had a billion dollars I'd:
    1) buy the Pistons
    2) thank Joe while he packs up his office and then escort him out
    3) hire Laimbeer & Mahorn
    4) make free chili for everyone

    I'm having troubles signing up because of the number too. It didn't allow me the option to put my area code (Argentina).

    Yeah, this is odd. I can take advertisments to my mail accounts but to my phone number won't happen.

    Interesting. Had not read that before. Thanks for the link.

    Yahoo better not abuse this or it might blow up in their face.

    On the bright side, I haven't received any unsolicited texts since starting a different bracket pool last Monday.

    Bill,
    I don't exactly dislike you but if you were on fire and I had water, I'd drink it! :caked:
