I am finalizing the rules on a bracket challenge for UB5. Look for a link later tonight.

Here's the problem with brackets:

1) They make me want to root against the underdogs, which spoils the fun of March Madness.

2) The first round, which is the best round and the hardest round to predict, matters very little. Picking the first round upsets should be worth more than picking the champion. It's harder to guess that Dayton will upset VCU than it is to guess that Louisville will win it all.

That said, looking forward to the bracket. Go Blue Devils!

Here are the rules:

Scoring is basic and straight forward, 10 first round 20 second round etc...no bonus points for upsets.
Entry fee is $10.00 per bracket, we're still working on the method of payment - winner take all (or most).
Play as many brackets as you like.

I will participate. This thread saddens me a bit because it reminds me of what CUF once was. It was a fun community. Now it's just another zoobie site run by a zoob.

I'm still bitter at Mrs. HFN, she took that title away from me like two years ago.

Not letting me join with more than one, trying to add the fam's brackets. Really don't want to have to sign up for new Yahoo! accounts for the kids.

I went in and set the Max # of brackets to 5...hopefully that will be enough because that's as many as we could do.

Let me know if you have any trouble.

Also, the rest of you...I know you've got a bracket...nothing wrong with a little scratch on the line!

Done. I did my thing picking a major every time a major and a mid-major went head to head -- except St. Louis. I have Georgeown beating St. Louis for the title.

Please tell me you're joking. Picking the Hoyas is like picking Lindsey Lohan for Best Actress.

So it is basically down to MRD, LadyDuckCoug and OrangeUte. If Louisville wins it all, then LDC takes the crown, if Louisville loses to Wichita St, then the winner of the other semifinal will determine who wins between MRD and OU(tough to guess who has who:D)
