    Whatever Matt, I need to see it to believe it!!

    Besides, the first bracket you make is year should be counted as your official one. None of this I had Kentucky in 2, UNC is 2 and Michigan State in 1! hahaha(Not you, but other people try pulling that crap all the time)

    The only two girls in our office pool are #1 and #2 right now. Ugh.
    I've got the best possible Finish Score though, so hopefully that serves me well.

    In my office pool, we did it a bit different.

    8 guys - $20 a head.
    Draw for selection, 1 through 8.
    8 picks for 8 teams, first pick 1 through 8, second pick, 8 through 1, etc.
    Pretty much like picking fantasy basketball in a non-auction.

    First time I participated in a NCAA pool like this. It has been fun.

    The one guy who knows nothing about the pool is tied for first.... with me I could have been crushing it but close loses for Alabama and Notre Dame in the first round hurt and close 2nd round loses for Vandy and Georgetown hurt too.

    I have given up on my traditional bracket here but in this other pool I have 3 teams left: Go Kentucky, Cincinnati, and Ohio!

    We used to do that in our office, before I started organizing it.
    I had heard that it wasn't all that fun for guys who actually followed the NCAA, as its basically like playing the lottery.
    But the way you put it, it just sounds less hastle. haha

    Have it set up on CBSSports.com, and they host a mean March Madness bracket.

    This could be my downfall. Hopefully he'll be back at some point but by the sounds of it his wrist hurts when he dribbles. Maybe they'll cruise past Ohio and he returns on the weekend.

    Kendall Marshall's cast is off and he's in a removable splint. Great news for my bracket! Oh, and for UNC as well... Hopefully he'll be able to go.
