    Re: MARCH MADNESS BRACKETS... Join Now!

    This is the first time I've picked brackets beyond making my own private predictions round-by-round. I assume the PF contest is picking all brackets upfront, right down to the tournament winner.

    Maybe this is a stupid question, but can we pick round-by-round to cover the previous round's mis-picks? Or if you screw up big time in the first round, you're just plain SCREWED...?

    Another stupid question: Is there a yahoo link that gets me directly to the PF.com group brackets?

    DOH!!! :tinfoil3:

    Re: MARCH MADNESS BRACKETS... Join Now!

    Not stupid questions.

    You pick all brackets up front BEFORE the tourney begins. You cannot change once the tourney begins. Also, the later rounds are worth more points than the first round, so if you mess up the early picks, if those teams were not slated to go very far, you still have a chance. For example, I think first round matches are one point each, while third round matches are four. Fourth round matches are 8...etc.

    Yes. Once you've signed up, if you go to your yahoo sports page & click "Fantasy" in the top right corner, you'll find our group and your team name on the page. Just click it and you are there.

    Was I clear? If not...please let me know.:)

    Re: MARCH MADNESS BRACKETS... Join Now!

    I kinda figured there had to be a weighting by round...thanks for clarifying.

    Also, I've clicked 'Fantasy' before without waiting for the drop-down with the PF.com link...thanks for the heads-up. :)

    O.k, filled out my bracket and I take back what I said about knowing nothing about college basketball.

    I know a lot less than nothing about college basketball. Who knew there was an actual team with the name Mean Green?

    I'm a chicken. I had a sentimental choice since Sunday (not MSU) winning it all, but I just backed out & changed my final two teams. Bok Bok.

    Whoa, Darth, Texas A%M Corpus Christi over Wisconsin? Took some onions to pick that one! Aside from that, your bracket looks kind of boring.

    I know I'm probably going to finish last anyway, but there are always some weird teams making it at least to the Sweet Sixteen, and if you can guess those right, you're in good shape. I have a UNLV-Winthrop showdown in the third round. Not because I particularly know anything about those teams, but just because I figured I needed at least one bizarro double-upset Sweet Sixteen matchup.

    Of course, getting the Final Four as accurate as possible is really the key to winning with this scoring system.

    Re: MARCH MADNESS BRACKETS... Join Now!

    OMG, Warthog's bracket is insane! Stanford vs. Creighton and Oral Roberts vs. Texas Tech in the Sweet 16? Kentucky, Tennessee, and Butler in the Final Four?! Dude, my Wildcats blow. I picked them to lose in the first round. :laugh:

    Credit for picking an off-the-charts wacky bracket, though! At least now I know that I won't finish last. :pound:

    i'm here to defend my title from last year, when I had to battle a large and competitive field of entries to produce the winning bracket.

    Re: MARCH MADNESS BRACKETS... Join Now!

    Whoa, Butler over Florida, prof? Hmm. Actually, back in 2000, I had Butler upsetting Florida in the first round (it was a 12 vs. 5 game). Florida won it at the buzzer, on a crazy shot by Mike Miller, so I was right to have suspected that one as a possible upset, even though it fell just short of happening. BUT, Florida went on to make the national title game! Much to the chagrin of my bracket...

    prof, it looks like you're hanging your hat on Louisville getting to the Final Four and Florida getting upset in the third round. If those two things happen, you'll probably have a good shot at winning it all again.

    I had Oregon beating Memphis in the final, but only because I wanted Oregon to win. I changed it to North Carolina losing to UCLA. If Oregon wins somehow, I'm gonna kick myself.

    I had a really tough time deciding between the BYU/Xavier matchup in the first round. I eventually stuck with BYU though.

    Re: MARCH MADNESS BRACKETS... Join Now!

    One of my first round upset specials is getting blown out in Stanford. Louisville up by as many 29 pts in the first half....Who was I listening to on that one??

    The davison-Maryland game is closer than expected. How many people have Davison prevailing in that one?

    Anyone who picked Stanford was stupid (staring at Roscoe :stirthepot:). They were the one of the teams that nobody thought should have been in the tourney in the first place. Another one is Arkansas, but Roscoe picked them through to the Sweet 16! Of course, I'll be the one looking dumb if they make it, but I think I'm pretty safe on that front.

    NCAA hoops is not something I follow in the least. I'm merely participating to show support for my friend Tater's initiative.

    webz' bracket is suspicious too: almost no upsets anywhere. But I'm sure you guys would stomp us in an annual Cricket Craziness Challenge.

    Re: MARCH MADNESS BRACKETS... Join Now!

    It was one I pondered over..I guess I was impressed with the Lopez twins:nerd2: :nerd2:


    At least Dell Curry's son a Davison freshman showed that his father genes are working..scoring 30pts... but alas just like his old man, his game was all about the long ball.

    And the good thing is we don't have to see or hear Bobby Knight for the rest of the tourney since TT was eliminated.
