So, I get really into March Madness every year, so I thought it would be fun to make a BN bracket group. No money involved, just for fun.

I made the group on www.cbssports.com. You have to sign up for an account there if you don't already have one, which takes about two minutes.

This is the link you'll need to use to join the group:

http://bn-mm.mayhem.cbssports.com/e


The password is: 1908


If that link/password doesn't work let me know and I will tinker with it. The first games are next Thursday, 3/15, so you'll need to have your picks in by then. Even if you don't know a ton about college bball it's fun to do, because there are usually a lot of upsets each year, so everyone has a chance of winning (bragging rights).

Our 58-year-old, willingly-sports-ignorant office manager won our office pool last year ($10 entry fee)... she actually picked teams based on their names and colors. It was infuriating. I can't remember way the big upset was that she lucked out on, but I'm still pissed about it. And I couldn't care less about college basketball.

Bracket is set! Get your picks in by Thursday. Brett, maybe a link to this thread in the bullets sometime this week to get more of the community involved?

I'd love to see Western Kentucky pull the upset.

Set the bracket. I'm a little out of the loop but I think I've picked an appropriate number of 5-12 upsets, old powerhouses, young upstarts, and fluffy mascots.

I might try this but have my daughter make the picks I just don't follow NCAA close enough to make an educated decision.

Don't bother, I just filled mine out. I got this in the bag. Should be a good battle for second place though.

I did my ESPN picks and somehow ended up with San Diego State as my national champs in a close game over St. Mary's. I think I nailed it and picked a perfect bracket.

I've got too many games I want to see. For example, I have Indiana and Kentucky meeting more because I want to see that rematch than because I think IU can get that far.

Oh, well. I've got some time to revise it yet.
