March Madness Bracket Contest Anyone?

If there is interest in forming an NCAA March Madness bracket contest I’ll be happy to set one up (probably with ESPN). It’s pretty easy to do, the winner would be the person who correctly picked the most games over the length of the Tournament, and as many people who want to join can. Needless to say, the prestige that accompanies being the Peach Pundit March Madness Bracket Contest Champion in incalculable.

If enough of you are interested, I’ll set it up Monday night.

    I think my bracket picks of best mascots and perfectly coordinated colors will stand up to any bracket that is picked using formulas, knowledge and expertise. Bring it!

        Yes, I only do one bracket a year. It’s usually good enough to win. How many do you want me to do?

          • polisavvy says:

            Don’t laugh, but I actually do fairly decently every year. I started by getting in my son’s fraternity’s bracket — the first year I picked 7 of the 8 finals, the final four, and the winner. Not bad for a girl, huh? I actually love college football, but love March Madness, too. I’m such a “guy” when it comes to sports! Never miss Gameday on Saturdays.

                Ha ha!! I’ve been told my friends of my husband that I’m every man’s ‘dream wife.’ I actually get up early on Saturdays, get whatever needs to be done finished, food planned out, etc., and literally sit in front of the TV all day and half the night. I love it. I do need your help getting on the 141074 bracket thing, though. How do I log on? I tried the 141074/tanalach thing, but it didn’t work. Could you kind of ‘walk me through’ it?

                • Doug Deal says:

                  Are you putting that in where it asks you to log into Yahoo? Because that is the wrong place. You have to create a yahoo account first then sign up for the bracket.

                  Otherwise, you’ll have to be more descriptive of what you see.

                  • polisavvy says:

                    I did it! My bracket is already there, hopefully. Is there any way for you to tell that it is there? Thanks for your help. This should be fun. Well, I know what I’ll be doing starting at around noon today. Good luck to everyone participating!! πŸ™‚

                    • polisavvy says:

                      By the way, I just looked at the names of the participants and mine is not there. What could I have done wrong? I saved it. Help!!

                    • polisavvy says:

                      Yup. I did it correctly. I checked a little bit ago and it was there. It said complete and I saved it, too. Hopefully, I didn’t screw that up.

    • polisavvy says:

      Help!! I can’t get registered. Any advice on what to do? I’d appreciate it and time is running out. Thank goodness I have my bracket already written out.

    I heard a rumor the OX campaign will be announcing OX picking Georgia to go all the way. And they are having an event for Michigan Sate vs. Georgia game Thursday with a margarita machine on Lake Lanier. πŸ™‚

    I guess 12-4 is not too bad a way to start this thing off, especially given the crazy scores and overtimes.

    • polisavvy says:

      Don’t feel bad — things can improve dramatically today. I was really shocked at Georgetown’s game. Taking them out of the mix, the other three games I lost, I lost by a total of 13 points (one was an OT)(UNLV, Texas, and Richmond). At least my “Sweet 16” still remains in tact. Good luck today, Ken! πŸ™‚

      • ByteMe says:

        Same strategy as mine, get as many winners as possible into next weekend. So far, only Washington has ruined this weekend for me.

        • polisavvy says:

          Really? You thought that Georgetown was going down in the first round? I’m impressed!! That was my shock game. If today is as good as yesterday, then this is shaping up to be a great basketball. Getting all chores done by noon! I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my birthday than watching great college basketball! πŸ™‚

  4. polisavvy says:

    Good luck today with your picks! I wonder if it will be as crazy a day today as yesterday? Who will be upset next?

    • polisavvy says:

      I still have 7 of the Elite 8, and three of the final four. Glad I picked Kentucky. Still in shock over Kansas. Unbelievable!! πŸ™‚
