TKD reminded me of this. We did it last year and the year before that, so who's up for round 3? \:D/

Here's the instructions I posted last time:
Quote:
Basically, whoever wants to play will fill out a "Bracket" of which teams you think will win each game. If you pick the most games correctly, you'll receive a prize! (Probably $250 in ToO money.) Sign up as soon as possible!

Here is how to sign up:
  1. Click the link above.
  2. If you've ever used ESPN.com before, log into your account. If not, there's a button to sign up for a free one. A pop-up will appear. Fill it out.
  3. Click the the button that says "CREATE AND JOIN". You have now been added to the game.
  4. Pick all the winning teams!


>> Click here to view/join the game! <<
And yes, I will award $250 to the winner. \:D/

Oh look, you can sign in with Facebook. \:D/ ...and then create an ESPN account anyway. :-k

I was just about to post this, I’m in! :)
I’m going to be really bad like last year because I have no idea who is good. \:D/

Shall do my picks tomorrow, I'm assuming games start Thursday? ;) I got all mixed up watching the ACC. :P

On a random side note, Duke looks amazing this year. :-

I think I just spent up to two hours on my bracket. :anxious: My final four are Kentucky, Michigan State, Ohio State, and North Carolina. First year I've had 3 top seeds make it to the final four. Should be interesting. \:D/

I spent... less than 5 minutes on mine. UConn, Syracuse, Marquette and UNC in my final four, with Marquette vs. Syracuse in the final.

Good for you, Dan. ;)

I really haven't seen UConn at all...any idea how their defense is?

First few minutes of the Colorado St./Murray St. game, they're both playing really tense for the the beginning of the first half. o.O

xD Awesome.

Murray State runs away with game 1, as I pout about not being able to watch the K-State game. \:D/

So far I've gotten one right, one wrong, two possibly right, and one possibly wrong. Almost better than expected for rather arbitrary selections. \:D/

The game I would be most interested in besides Syracuse is St. Bonaventure in their first tournament in over a decade.

I did not know that. ^_^ That will be interesting to watch then. I believe it's Harvard's first entry in some time, as well.

Harvard is doing surprisingly well for first entry in more the six decades. \:D/ 15 points down, but then it could be a lot worse. :P

KF: Michigan, or Michigan State? ;) I'm assuming the first. :D

You are a sad, sad girl if you think I would pick Michigan State over any team except Ohio State. ;)

Heey, I know some people who pick teams to go all the way just because they like them. ;) Sadly, my dad did that, and that was the year they happened to win. xD
