March Madness 2012

Post by thacon » Sun Mar 11, 2012 9:55 am

I don't follow basketball even a little bit, but our bracket/tournament/bowl pick em games are always a good time. Is anyone interested in a bracket challenge for this year's tournament? I'll put up 500k for the winner.

As I have already done a bracket, I shall participate.

I will squelch my former nemesis, with the bacon-sounding name, thacon.

I'm not going to set anything up unless there's more interest. At this point, it doesn't look like there is. And if that's the case, Rever, you lose by default. Sorry.

I would have made a bracket if Arizona had made it. But since they can't beat COLORADO I am disinterested.

But... but... but.. how will I defend my AFH/k Bracket queen crown? =/
(actually, last year was a total fluke so no biggie if we skip this year- it was a lot of fun, though!)

Definitely in. Would be happy to toss in an entry fee as well if there's interest in that sort of thing to increase prize pool.

It looks like Eigen's group still works for this year.

I'll join in. I don't want to bet actual money but this'll be fun.

I'll feel obliged to pick Purdue, so my entry won't be very good, but there it is.

Filled out my bracket. Same as the one for my office. Has a few interesting picks (including a 14 over a 3).

Filled it out in about 5 minutes... which is about 30 seconds longer than my fluke of a win last year. =)

I can't say that I'm surprised that panic and I are the only ones who picked Ohio State to win it all. Also, this whole using you real name thing is going to throw me off.

I believe my feelings on the chestnuts are well known...I have them exiting as soon as at all possible.
