    So, didn't see the tourney bracket challenge this year, so set one up. Sign up here:

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

    It won't let me join without sending me a text.

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

    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...?

    So the text thing worked this time, weirdly, so I'm in.

    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

    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? :D

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

    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! :)

    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.

    Wow, this has been an exciting tournament already! Lots of unanticipated upsets. We're not even to the Sweet 16 yet, and 2 of the 10 brackets I registered over on ESPN.com are already DOA, thanks to the losses by Wichita State and Oregon. Michigan State very nearly sabotaged a third before they pulled out a win late against Harvard last night.

    Maybe... just maybe... one of my brackets will correctly predict the national champion. Somehow, with all the "madness" that's gone on so far, I doubt it.

    GOOD GOD. Creighton... what happened?!?! I know it's Baylor, but.... a 30-point loss? As Freddie Mercury said:

    And another one gone, and another one gone
    Another one bites the dust!

    That makes three of my brackets completely busted before the Sweet 16. Glad to see the Vols made it this far. They're about to get hit by the freight train known as Michigan, but they've done Big Orange fans everywhere proud. Cuonzo, your job is secure, buddy! :)

    I've still got the most possible points on the board, but I'm sitting in last. This ought to be fun.

    I think it's fair to say we all did terribly ;)
