I got the annual email from my brother about the family tournement for March Madness (2$ /bracket) and figured I'd browse HTF opinins (and tomorrow's paper) before making my random, uneducated guesses on the bracket.

Funny story, the first time I filled one of these out was in eighth grade and no one bothered telling me that the 1-16 numbers were rankings, I remember thinking they were number of wins or something.

Right now I'm thinking it'll be a UCLA / Georgetown Showdown, with Oregon, UCLA, Ohio St and Georgetown in the final four. Posted Image

If anyone's up for March Madness picks and seeing how you do against other HTFers, check out the Yahoo Tournament Pick'em 2007, and click on "Join a Group" and then it'll prompt you to log into or create a Yahoo account. Once you do that, then use:

I joined your bracket, Patrick. My disclaimer, though, is that I have paid almost no attention to college b-ball this year.

So, who's filling out an NIT -- aka "The Tommy Amaker Invitational" -- bracket? Posted Image

Last time G'Town was in the Final Four they had a certain coach and a certain big man. That ain't happening this year.

Well, that makes 3 of us. I was following college basketball early in the year, but then my team stunk up the joint, and then went on a new run to finish the year, so I have been caught flat-footed when it comes to the teams that are playing well now, and which started well, but limped to the finish line before the tournament.

Thanks for starting a group. I will definitely join in. Last year I just entered the yahoo brackets by myself. It will be nice to be part of a group. I never win at these things, but since I am fairly sure the Univ of Illinois won't be in very long, it will be a nice diversion.

I am officially signed up. I decided to really go "out on a limb" and pick some real underdogs. It is more fun that way.

I'm in, but like has already been said, I have followed little college bball this year, except I know Kevin Durant is the man.

You mean you can't break down that Winthrop - Notre Dame matchup like the rest of us diehards ? Jeez...get a life. [/sarcasm]

haha.

C'mon, nobody has the secrets to victory. That is what makes these games so much fun. I am in.

Last year I hit it huge in the opening round...picked a number of upsets (almost completely lucky, did a little research) then completely tanked in round 2.

I'll play! I know everything forward and backwards about the UH Rainbows, but I don't follow anybody else. This was a very tough year for my Rainbows, especially because Coach Riley Wallace has retired against his desires. (Long story.)

Alex should get a bonus point for creating a name for his picks that made me laugh.

Thanks, Patrick. My dual-job lifestyle has ensured that I've watched very, very little hoops this year, as well. So it could get ugly.

I am going to make one final "pass" at my bracket and just sit back and see how badly I do at predicting the winners. The unexpected wins is what makes this a great tournament.

You have to unjoin the group you are in and then you can get in...I think,.

Oh, well, I'll stay where I am at then. Posted Image...but I will predict here that

Florida, Kansas, Georgetown, & Texas A&M make the Final Four.

A&M over Kansas in the final. Posted Image (some of that is rather biased Posted Image)

I'm in two yahoo groups, one at work and one for HTF, same account and everything, so yeah you can be in multiple groups.

Yes, but I believe each group you are in requires a separate bracket to be completed. Of course, you could make all the same picks in up to 5 different brackets. I may be confusing the ESPN rules and Yahoo's rules.

You can assign the same bracket to multiple groups in yahoo.
