Good luck. Personally, I'm planning to win the billion, so you're playing for seconds at least

What's the pool ID? It will let me log in that way, I think.

Re: March Madness 2014 - Pick 'Em Challenge

I don't see it presenting that this year when you go into settings. Just gives the link to send out, or lets me invite via email/facebook/twitter.

If you want to PM me your email address, I can send it directly.

Pegs got in via the link as well, so not sure why it's giving you trouble...?

Re: March Madness 2014 - Pick 'Em Challenge

Who else wants a crack at the brackets? Sign up soon. Plus, if it's still open, should register for the Billion Dollar Challenge, just in case you accidentally hit it perfect. Not going to happen, but the payout if you do isn't too shabby! Decent prizes for just winning without it being perfect, so worth the 2 min to register.

Yahoo has updated it's security recently. It made me make my password more secure and link my account to my phone or another email. It was annoying

Nation Gears up for Start of College Basketball Season

Having waited 11 months since the conclusion of last year’s thrilling four-week campaign, millions of Americans are gearing up for the start of college basketball season on Mar. 18, sources confirmed Monday. “I love college basketball, so it’s just great knowing that it’s almost back,” said 28-year-old Collin Shuster of Skokie, IL, echoing the thoughts of fans across the country who spent the winter excitedly reading various preseason rankings and team previews. “Obviously it’d be great if the season weren’t so short, and it sucks that once a team loses a single game their whole year is over, but I suppose that’s part of the reason college basketball is so exciting. I can’t wait for the first game.” Many Americans confirmed, however, that they only start closely paying attention halfway through the season, when only 16 teams remain in the field.
In other news, my undergrad's men's basketball team (Delaware Blue Hens) made the tournament for the first time in God knows how long. Surprisingly, they aren't even in that extra day of games. Instead, they get to go up against Michigan State. Anyone smell an upset?

I gotta throw in some love for the OVC. I hope the Eastern Kentucky Colonels don't embarrass themselves in front of Kansas.

Re: March Madness 2014 - Pick 'Em Challenge

Yep, i blew it on the very first game as well. Avoids all the stress of having a perfect bracket blown in the Final Four or something, though!

Re: March Madness 2014 - Pick 'Em Challenge

It has been a little hard to follow the tournament today but I did hear the end of the Dayton/Ohio St. game. It was a great finish and probably took out a lot of people's brackets. If you're going to lose it, it's better to lose it on the first day than the final four or the last day. Takes all the pressure off.
