  1. Laley
  2. Terry
  3. Goon
  4. Wiz
  5. Turtles
  6. sportchampps
  7. Jschilling
  8. birddog
  9. Mirg
  10. Gerb
  11. RollBrowns 

If anyone knows someone, let them know. I will text birddog tomorrow sometime to see if he is in.

    Birddog is in. So we at least have 8. 

    Sun, Mar 1, 2020 12:58 PM

    Mirg makes 9. Waiting on Gerb.

    We also had 10 last year. Think we were going to settle for 8, but ended up getting 10.

    And Gerb is in. So we have our 10. If anyone knows someone reliable, we can shoot for 12. But I know the last few years we’ve been able to really move with this group.

    Birddog has a friend who would make 11. Dont really need an even number for this, since no head to head. Im good to cap it at 11 and leave a spot for Wildcats if he changes his mind lol.

    Or if someone else has a friend who wants in..?

    Alright, one week to go.

    Lets start ironing out this thing. We have 11, so can use same payment/payouts as last year — with the extra $50:

    • $35 more to first; $15 to second
    • $30/$20
    • $25/$15/$10 to third
    • $50 to highest average (which we dropped last year)

    I’m all ears.

    Also, Birddog, does your friend have an account name yet?

    Mon, Mar 9, 2020 11:43 AM

    I just texted him and asked if he has created account yet.

    For the highest average option....that came with a minimum of 3 games played in the tournament, right?

    Correct. First four DOES count for that. Should the play in game advance to round of 32.

    RollBrowns is my buddy’s name

    Mon, Mar 9, 2020 8:36 PM

    Awesome, I will draw the draft order on Wednesday night. Looking forward to Terry having the last pick again. I swear it happens 90% of the time on these things lol.

    Wildcats (or anyone else), you have until around this time Wednesday to change your mind and join in on the fun!

    Ahhh another lovely $50 donation. This year might be the least I've ever watched college basketball.

    I like $25/$15/$10 or we each throw up a bracket and winner of that gets the $50 

     

    so we know who really predicted what upsets lol

    Same. Ive been doubting for awhile now. The no fans thing was kind of a PR stunt...the odds of no team member getting infected was minuscule, and at that point it has to be shut down.

    Yeah the NCAA is stupid but I don’t see how they can justify a b-ball tournament when colleges are not even having classes on campus. 

    Thu, Mar 12, 2020 12:36 PM

    With every tournament cancelled they might as well have a selection Friday show so we can all talk about what would have been

    Thu, Mar 12, 2020 3:05 PM

    Duke and Kansas suspending all athletic travel... only a matter of time before the tournament is cancelled now.

    Thu, Mar 12, 2020 3:35 PM

    Yeah it will be cancelled the real question is if they try and play it in May or just scrap it alt
