    Default March Madness Pick 'Em Contest 2012

    It's that time of year again!

    Since you normally set these things up Apollo I guess we should keep the tradition going? I'll make it if you don't have time though...

    Good idea, Mack.

    Nice work, Apollo.


    I do horrendous every year at the brackets. I'm sure this year will be no different.

    Remember you need to have your picks in by noon EST on Thursday. and don't forget to pick the finals and tiebreaker. I can't remember who it was last year but they had a excellent bracket but forgot to pick the tie breaker and finals. LOL Priceless.

    One year I won it because I had the entire sweet sixteen and up correct. Still my greatest bracket claim to fame.

    Its really not confusing at all dude, you should give it a shot. All u have to do is pick every game of the tourney the way u see it going down. Shoot, chicks are involved in office pools all the time, and some of them base their picks on where they've been to or what color the team wears. Some of those girls also do very well in their pools!

    It really doesn't matter how much college ball u watch...

    Thanks for setting it up again Apollo.

    Yeah, it's all point and click. Yahoo makes it so easy that you can build a bracket start to finish in under five minutes. I did mine in ten minutes, thought long and hard about my picks.

    I'll be the blonde office chick this year, as I know absolutely nothing about college basketball and have maybe never even seen more than about 10 minutes of a game.

    I heard about some good teams (kentucky/Duke especially and I think I read something about Florida), but don't know if what I heard/read about most other teams was good or bad. So basically I choose the team which sounded (somewhat) familiar.

    add: Oh yeah, like a good office chick I didn't use the research button.

    I thought about which mascot would destroy the other mascot in the octagon. That is why I have the Gators going so deep only to be taken out by the agility, teamwork, ferocity of the Wildcats.

    Hahaha Love this thought process.

    Although, to counter, I'm pretty sure the UNLV Rebels would come in and shoot all the animals mascots with their muskets...


    Love the rebels ... Cheerleaders...

    Kentucky vs. Florida
    Ohio State vs. North Carolina

    Championship Game: Kentucky vs. UNC

    Were you referring to the Kansas State Wildcats? Or possibly Davidson? Villanova? Northwestern? Arizona? Shall I continue? I think I'm missing about 30 more or so... Does Kentucky still have a team???

    Hahaha Was thinking this as well. Well played, sir.
    It's pretty ridiculous isn't it?

    I figured 6 teams of WildCats would demolish one poor team of Gators.
