5th Annual NCAA Tournament Bracket Challenge
« on: March 13, 2016, 06:10:44 PM »
Hey guys, here's the thread for this year's NCAA Tournament Bracket Challenge

Here's the page to enter your bracket

The group is up - we're "Grogheads 2016" and the password is nowolfpack   :'(


It's set for 2 entries / person, but that's only so I can create the usual "Straight Chalk" bracket that lets you compare against the tournament seeding.  Anyone entering 2 'legit' brackets will have both DQ'ed.

No idea what the prizes will be, but we'll come up with our usual "something" out of the grab-bag

I'll post daily updates each morning after games are played starting Friday 3/18

I'll be part of the fodder. How do you join the league? I don't see where you go.

You have to sign in to ESPN, and there should be a button to "join group" toward the bottom.

Go Heels!
Beat Dook!

I'll find the time to make a bracket.

This could be the wildest NCAAs yet.  There have been more #1s this year than in the last 15 years.  The current #1 seeds have the highest number of combined losses of any four #1 seeds in my lifetime.  There are fewer dominant teams this year.

I've entered.  Pretty conventional picks - which is unlikely to work given the number of losses the top 16 seeds all have.

Dook still sucks.
