ESPN NCAA bracket challenge ToO group

If there's something on your mind that just doesn't seem to fall into any of the other categories, well, it quite likely belongs inside Joe Finneman's marketplace. Think of it as a general store for general discussions!

ESPN NCAA bracket challenge ToO group

Postby King Butter Turtle » Sun Mar 15, 2009 10:30 pm

For those of you entering brackets for ESPN's challenge, I've set up a private group for the ToO. It's called theToO and the password is topcrusader. There is a $1000 prize for the winner and $250 for second place. (ToO dollars that is ;) )

So, who's in everybody's final four? Do you have any big upsets?

I have Memphis over Louisville and North Carolina over Villanova, then Memphis over North Carolina. I've got Northern Iowa into the sweet 16 and Cornell over MO.

I don't have anything too exciting. I have Louisville, Conn, Pitt, and Oklahoma in the Final Four and Pitt winning it all.

I had to get one 5-12 upset in there so I put Wisconsin over Florida St.... Any other 5-12 upsets. There always seems to be one...

Woah, I filled out one on this website and I'm not sure how to get it back quite yet, but that looks amazingly like my final four and victories to get there. :huh: Except I have North Carolina over, like, Louisville maybe?

(I'm not doing the ESPN challenge if you didn't already realize that ;) )

As with me. I asked a lot of friends about what they thought. Oftentimes, those who don't follow college bball will do better than those that followed for the whole season...

I actually didn't follow it much this season either. I think JIA's the only one who really knows very much about basketball, but we'll see.

I was kind of expecting a better turnout, didn't we do this last year with superior success. I want to say Taq ran it, but I'm not sure. Anyway, there's still one more day to fill in your brackets for a 20% chance at $1000. Come on people, join in the fun! \:D/

EDIT: If you watch at cbssports.com, there's a "boss button" that links to a fake spreadsheet. :hilarious:

Now, you're 8 for 8. ;)

Obama picked Maryland! \:D/

Did you guys get to watch it at school? I saw about 15 minutes at the end of 6th and 7th hours and it was also on in the cafeteria and library, but all my teachers turned it off during lessons. :(

Yeah. We didn't even do anything in physics. Also, we had the option to watch it during our lunch period too. \:D/

Nice. I want the $10,000. lol.

Nope, it wasn't me.

I watched a March Madness game last Saturday. Maryland beat Cal earlier in the week, but was sadly overmatched by Memphis.

I ran the competition last year, but only a few people signed up. :p

My pick set on ESPN is doing horribly. Too bad I didn't put my Yahoo picks into my ESPN bracket. XD
