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

    Re: Yahoo Tourney Pick'em

    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.yaho...d6a1c2d0b137d1


    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.

    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.

    I'm confused... aren't I in dead last!?!?!?

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