March is here!!!!

We've got conference tournaments starting this week with the major conferences playing theirs next week. Selection Sunday is less than 2 weeks away...March 11th.

I'll be hosting a Tourney Pool again, this year. We had over 150 entries last year! If I remember correctly, we had VickFan and bluemist in it last year.

Everything will remain the same. The entry fee will still be $5 per entry. Scoring remains the same as well as prizes payouts:

1st Place - 70%
2nd Place - 15%
3rd Place - 10%
4th Place - 5%

TOTAL 100% of paid entries minus the $5 returned to the last place bracket.

Last place gets their entry fee returned. All prizes will be rounded to the nearest $5 with higher place getting priority if there needs to be adjustment.

I will post a follow up selection Sunday, after the brackets have been announced giving you the link to pool.

NOTE: For those of you who might not be aware, the NCAA has expanded the tournament field from 65 teams (with 1 play-in game) to 68 teams with, essentially, 4 play-in games to be called the "First Four"). The main difference is that the winner of these games will not necessarily end up as a 16 Seed. It could be that the winner of the game ends up entering the bracket as a 12 Seed, or a 10 seed. The region and the bracket line each game will play for won't be announced until the selection show. We'll handle these 4 games just as we handled the single play-in game in previous years...we'll ignore them. However, as noted above, the play-in winner may be seeded higher than the 16th seed.

Conference tournaments are over and interestingly, 3 of 4 number one seeds lost in the finals of their tournament.

The pool site is up and running at http://home.comcast.net/~mac_the_knife/ ... ckage.html

The first link “Enter Your Picks” is where you make your actual picks. Please don’t wait until the last day (March 15th) if you’re going to attempt to make your picks at work. Some company firewalls will block my pages.

Please do not send cash through the mail. I do not have a PayPal account but I do take checks. Please send a note along with your payment letting me know the name(s ) you’re paying for. My address can be found by clicking the “Tournament Rules” link. Please have your money in to me by Friday, March 15th, or at a minimum send me an email letting me know how you expect to pay.

Save a copy of your submission...there’s a print button. I will be downloading in the evenings so be patient about seeing your name show up in the player listing but please do check to see if your name shows up by the following morning. Thursday, which I’m taking off, I will be downloading submissions that morning up until the deadline. Once the deadline is past, you will be able to see everyone’s picks.

TOURNAMENT RULES

Rules
All submissions need to be made by noon on March 15th. If for any reason, the web site is down, you'll need to email your picks no later than 12:10 PM. $5 per bracket, submitted.

Scoring:

Round 1 - 1 point per correct pick
Round 2 - 2 points
Round 3 - 4 points
Round 4 - 8 Points
Round 5 - 16 points
Final game - 32 points

Tie Breakers:
1) Total points in final game
2) Number of correctly picked teams in final 8
3) Pick percentage for entire tourney

I might try and get in, this yr....do you have a grid or a way for everyone to see each other's picks and overall standings?

We used to use tourney time.com

It's a great site and updates the standings the minute a game ends.

You may have explained it but I didn't read the whole post.

No, didn't explain it. The above post is actually a slightly altered email I send out to the previous year's participants just to wake them up. :lol:

I use Turbo Tourney to run the pool. Definitely easier than the old pen, paper, and highlighter I used 20 some years ago. Below is a link to last year's web site. Soon after the selections are announced, I provide a link to make your picks online. I download the picks when I get home from work, in the evenings, leading up to the tip-off of the first Thursday game but do not show peoples' picks until the the pool is closed for submissions. I do show names so that you can see if your picks have been received.

Click around on the various reports. Obviously, this was the end of the tourney, so there are some reports that are not listed that are created at different times during the tourney. Specifically some scenario reports that start getting created when the number of possibilities get down to a manageable number...elite 8 if I remember correctly.

I always have at least one bracket in that has Duke winning it all even though I may not believe they've got a real chance like <cough>this year<cough>. :(

Stupid Melo hosing my bracket right after I send it in. At least Cuse still has plenty of weapons to make a run.

Sending a PM but let me know if you want to update your bracket. I can delete it and you submit a new one.

Goes for anyone else. Of course, need to be done before the noon, Thursday, deadline.
