2. How often can I play?

You can play as many time as you want. You will need to use a unique name each time you enter online. For example, Joe Bob1, Joe Bob2, Joe Bob3. If you submit on the web under the same name your results will get overwritten and it will make everyone's life a bit more complicated.

3. I submitted my picks where are they?

Player picks will not be visible on the web site until Thursday evening, the evening of the first games. This will keep people from cheating by looking at picks already submitted. During the tournament everyone's picks and standings in the pool will be available online.

4. Is your web site broken?

No, be sure you have all the games selected, especially the final game and winner (that part is a bit tricky).

5. How do I get points in the pool?

By correctly picking the winner of each game.  If you correctly pick the winner, then their seed # is multiplied by the round points listed in the chart below.  For example, if you correctly picked a #5 seeded team to win in the third round, you would get 20 points (#5 x 4).  The scoring is designed to reward you for correctly picking upsets.

Round Points
Round 1 The Pack 1
Round 2 The Wheat From Chaff 2
Round 3 Sweet 16 4
Round 4 Elite 8 8
Round 5 Final 4 16
Round 6 Championship Game 32

 

6.I didn't print or save my picks. What can I do?

7. How much do I win?

Most of the money goes to those who pick the best outcomes. If your picks really suck, you can win 4% of the money.

1st = 60%, 2nd = 15%, 3rd = 10%, 4th = 6%, 5th = 5%, and Last gets 4%. 

8. Tie breaker for last place

The tie breaker for last place is the same as the other prizes. You want to be as close to the total points for the championship game.
