Last year's thread.


Can Twenty/Twelve repeat? Will WD and zmanonice remember to enter their picks this time? Prior to being locked out?

Will Polarbear & Tenuki fight it out for last place again?


Tune in next week to find out the answers!

Think I was tied for last in the College Bowl Pick'em so I might be able to give PB and tenuki a run for their money....

Is there a way to add more than one bracket?

edit: filled out another bracket. What's the password to add it to the wootwineaux group?

Don't forget that Brackets need to be fully filled out (and saved!) before tomorrow morning.

Recommend you finish them by tonight!!

OK, my team is in. Seeing how I haven't really followed the NCAA this year, I'm counting on blind luck as providing my only chance.

Less than 12 hours to get your bracket completed. Don't wait til the last minute to finish it, just in case you have a problem.

Finally got mine in...and I'm also making a run for last place. I used Odds/Evens for picking the winner, all the way throughout.
I'll probably have last place locked in after the first round...since my picks have more than 75% being upsets.

Edit: Hopefully WD remembered to fill out his bracket this year!

It's that time of year again -- before actual work could steal back my attention, post-Wootoff, here comes the next great distractor! As ever, my picks are based on little actual knowledge of college hoops (apart from what I've learned doing the brackets every year). Instead, I glean my picks from various pundits, which occasionally even turns out to be a winning strategy. Go Kentucky! (Er...what's that? They're not even in the tournament? Never mind!!!)

Won't let me add my bracket. Seems that the commissioner has it set so you can only have one bracket in the group. So, we'll see how my 10yo son does against you guys.

Yahoo won't let you add brackets after the tip-off...

Bracket is done, just can't seem to add it to the group, since the group only lets one bracket per person.

Go Oregon! Up by 11 at the half, and they were my one 12-over-5 pick!

I guess I could have registered him separately. He has his own email account. Plus, I'd rather have him embarrass all of yous.

You've secured it. Unbelievably. I've never seen a bracket with so much red in it.



And for everyone (and giving HaK a chance to double down on bad picks), I created the 2nd Chance Pick'ems. You should all have emails for it. Same name and PW as for initial, but it's under the 2nd Chance group.

Deadline to submit your bracket is 7:15pm EDT on Thursday, March 28.

I can't believe how wonderfully awful my bracket is. The one year I finally kinda follow the chalk is the year with possibly the most upsets ever
