fletch Posted March 11 Share Posted March 11 Selection Sunday 3/12 starting at 6 PM Eastern time is when bracket is released. Picks are due by Thursday 3/16 Noon Eastern time. I will rep (and encourage others to rep) whomever scores the most points in the following format for correct picks: National Champion (30 points or 0 points), Final Four Teams (8 points for each correct pick), Four double-digit seed (10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, or 16) underdog picks starting in round of 64 (seed for win, seed X 2 for 2 wins, seed X 3 for 3 wins, etc; play-in games in Dayton don’t count). Sample picks: National Champ – South Dakota State Final Four – South Dakota State, Marist, St Johns, Winthrop Double digit underdogs – 10 Akron, 12 Washington State, 13 UMBC, 14 Weber St If LSU wins the national championship. If Final Four is LSU, Oregon State, Marist, and St Johns. If Akron wins 2 games, Washington State wins 0 games, UMBC wins 1 game, Weber St wins 0 games I would get 0 points for my South Dakota State pick 8 points for my St Johns pick 8 points for my Marist pick 2*10 = 20 points for my Akron pick 1*13 = 13 points for my UMBC pick Final score 8+8+20+13=49 No one really ‘knows’ college basketball and I don’t feel like picking every game, so this is an easy way to get some rep for correctly guessing what 17-22 year-old young men do for 3 weeks. Round of 64 starts just after noon Eastern on Thursday, so get your picks in before then. Once games have started, feel free to post reaction to games in the thread. Enjoy figuring out your picks, and congratulations in advance to the luckiest one of us. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
