    RedsZone NCAA tourney pick 'em contest

    Hey gang,

    I set up a contest on Yahoo! for us RedsZoners. Thought it would be fun to crown a RedsZone bracketville champ.

    Here's how it works:

    Go to http://tournament.fantasysports.yahoo.com/and sign up. It's free, fun, and easy.

    Here's the league information you'll be asked for:

    Group ID#: 70507
    Group Name: RedsZone
    Group Password: gapper

    When you sign up, use your RedsZone name, that way we'll know it's you when we see your picks. Plus, we want you to be recognized in this forum as the champ.

    What do you guys think?

    Post here letting us know that you've signed up. Yahoo! allows for up to 50 participants. Good luck!

    Guess I should pay more attention but I usually don't.

    It is very difficult to pick the upsets. Right now, before i start messing with it ( i have till thursday) my final four looks like Duke vs. Gonzaga and Villanova vs. Mich St. (I know <-- The crazy pick). I just dont see uconn as the lock everyone else does, and so i dont know if i will stick with mich st, but that is the fun of this time of year. We could always have a team in the years past that screw everyone up (maryland, gonzaga, kent st. ) Ill have my wife look at it, she is fantastic at snap decisions based upon the mascots.

    I like the MSU pick. I think they could be a real force in this year's tourney

    Ok, I'm in. I spent a whole three minutes making my picks, so we'll see how that turns out. I haven't watched a lot of different teams this year.

    I thought I joined this group, but I guess I signed up for the other Redszone group...I have joined, but it started me at 0 points, so I missed scoring from day 1. Hopefully, I still have time to make a run.

    FYI, I scored 11 points in rd 1 in my other groups, so I would have been tied for 14th with the others.
