Using the NCAA Tournament Bracket, choose who you think will win each game all the way to the championship.
Points will be awarded for each correct pick according to the point structure below.
Additional points will be awarded for the seed number of the winning teams you choose
Each correct pick in the 1st Round: 1 point
Each correct pick in the 2nd Round: 2 points
Each correct pick in the 3rd Round: 4 points
Each correct pick in the 4th Round: 8 points
Each correct pick in the Final Four: 16 points
Correct Pick in the Championship Game: 32 points
The seed of the winning team is added to your point total. Since anyone can pick the higher ranking teams and do relatively well, a twist has been added to reward those that pick upset winners.
#16 seed wins in Round 1: If you choose #16 seed, you receive 17 points for that correct pick.
(16 (seed) + 1 (correct pick in Round 1) = 17 points)
#10 seed wins in Round 4: If you choose #10 seed, you receive 18 points for that correct pick.
(10 (seed) + 8 (correct pick in Round 4) = 18 points)
You must get the pick correct in order to get the bonus points
The winner is the entry that accumulates the most points according to their correct picks and additional points will become the March Madness Pool champion. (It is not the most correct picks but the most points accumulated)
To increase your chances of winning, you may play as many times as you wish. Each entry will be scored separately.

PLAYED LAST YEAR?: If you played last year, please be looking for an email from the commish with instructions on how to renew your entries for the upcoming season. If you wish to use a different account than last year, you will need to signup as a new player.
If you wish to play in both the Full Bracket pool and the Sweet 16 pool, you only need to sign up once.
2.) Online Payment: How to pay this way will also be provided in the confirmation email you receive after signing up.
NOTE: If you signup for the pool, but do not pay your entry fee in some form before the deadline, your entries will be removed for non payment, regardless of how well you are doing in the pool. This is standard procedure for all pools we run to ensure the integrity of the pool. Please make sure you get your payment in early to avoid this.
Selections for the entire tournament are due prior to tip off of the first game on Thursday, March 15 (which is typically around noontime ET). Once the deadline has passed for that game, your picks are locked in for the tournament.
PICKS POSTED BY COMMISH: If you need help making your selections or are having computer problems, please contact the commish with your selections before the deadline and he will make them for you.
WHEN ARE SELECTIONS POSTED: Selections are posted shortly after the first game of the tournament starts
