It is that most wonderful time of year again when the college basketball season reaches its glorious and chaotic culmination: the NCAA tournament, a.k.a March Madness!
Last year I did a very small scale bracket competition here (which I won, thanks Gonzaga), but hopefully we can get a few more people in it this year! You don’t necessarily need basketball knowledge to join in, all you have to do is pick a winner for each game progressing in rounds to the final where you pick your champion. Teams are seeded 1-16 in each of the four ‘regions’ of the bracket, it is highly unlikely for a 16 seed to win its match, but other than that upsets abound so don’t pick all to seeds - the knack is trying to pick the correct upsets.
All you need to join in is an account on the ESPN website, and to follow this link to join the DiS group I have set up.
You need to have your picks submitted by Thursday when the games start. Please feel free to ask any questions you have about this which may help you join in. Just a bit of fun really, would be great to get a decent crowd in for it.
Edit: also, if you could either name your entry with your username, or post in this thread what it is called. Mine is J… FL
