I haven't seen anyone address this yet aside from some passing conversation. I have created a Bleacher Nation group at ESPN.com for the NCAA Men's Basketball tournament. I'm not a fan of the Network either, but it's the most accessible tourney contest I'm aware of.
If you are interested, here is the link to the group. You will need an ESPN account, which is still free I think.
The password is "gocubs".

***Note: I'm not sure how the invite works so I'm currently testing it out. I may have to email the link to you.

Hey Jeffro - I think you have the group set up to only accept 4 people at the moment.

There wasn't an option to change the size of the group. I think that only 4 people have signed up is all. I tried to create a new group and couldn't find a group size choice.

idk about you guys but I'd be willing to throw $5 in to sweeten up the pot. I don't gamble much but I feel like this is a wiser investment than club keno

Except that I looked at it too. Surprisingly, the upsets that I picked already coincided with his odds.

I really have no clue why I ever try these. My bracket is usually fucked by about this time every year.

At least I am consistent and scrappy.
