I'm in. I feel my existing 20-year losing streak is in great shape!

Anyone want to do a bracket group with different scoring systems than yahoo standard? I kinda think the 1,2,4,8,16,32 system isnt the most fun, but everyone I know uses it anyways. Just always seemed silly that picking the nat champion is = to picking all 32 NCAA rd 1 games correctly.


I just created one if anyone wants in. http://tournament.fantasysports.yahoo.com/t1/group/137276/invitation?key=07d6a1c2d0b137d1


Set it up as 1, 2, 4, 8 12, 24
But with bonus points for seed differences picked. So 11 over 6 is 1 pt for rd 1 win + 5 bonus pts for rd 1 seed diff. Same thing if an 8 beats a 1 in rd 2 so youd get 2 points for the rd 2 win + 7 bonus points for the seed difference making it worth 9 points.



Note, even if you picked a 4 over 1 in the bracket for a sweet 16, if that 4 actually beats an 8 seed in the Sw16, the 4 does not get any bonus points for the victory.

That just sounds wrong.... on so many different levels.

Allow me to rephrase:

"I have entered the tournament pool. None shall defeat my brackets."

BTW, Yahoo has an iPhone pick'em app that's pretty nice (& free)...

I am not doing well. Dead last in the Redszone tournament, a full TWO wins behind the people tied in 2nd to last. Hopefully tomorrow is much nicer to me.

Thanks for keeping me out of last. :) I'm one of those just above you.

Nope. Did you view "complete standings"?

I am guessing that that Missouri loss busted some brackets. I am glad that i had them losing in the Sweet 16.

Heading into the games tonight, I am sitting at 24th our of 28 (they are 29 entries, but someone only picked the first round games, so I won't count them). I still have 6 of my elite 8 teams going and three of my 4 final four teams, so I could do some good ladder climbing over the next 4 days.

I haven't bothered checking since the Round of 64.

Allow me to be the first to congratulate myself on winning the Redszone NCAA Pick Em tournament!

Feeling pretty good about another Tournament Championship. I believe this is my 2nd in three years. Not quite ready to start calling it a dynasty though.

Something smells fishy, how long until those championships are vacated? :D

I lost a lot with the Mizzou upset.

Did you go with uniform colors again? Or did you mix it up and go with mascot ferocity? Just kidding. Congrats!
