March Madness 2011
SKIP IT. JUST TAKE ME TO THE BRACKETS. (password: madness)
Hi everyone. It's time for March Madness again!
Selection Sunday is this Sunday, March 13, and the tournament starts the following Thursday, March 17.
There is a NEW SCORING SYSTEM this year:
- 1st round: 1 point + seed
- 2nd round: 2 points + seed
- 3rd round: 4 points + seed
- 4th round: 8 points + seed
- 5th round: 16 points + seed
- 6th round: 32 points + seed
(The lame "first four" is not counted)
So if you correctly pick a 1 seed to win in the 1st round, you get 2 points. If an 11 seed wins in the 4th round, you get 19 points. This should keep more people in the running to win deeper into the tournament.
Entry fee is the same: $10/person. 1 bracket per person. Anybody can play. Prize structure will be announced when the tournament starts.
I'll be using CBS again. Click here. The password is: madness. You can fill out/change your bracket until CBS locks the brackets Thursday when the games start.
See you at the big dance! Bring your friends!
