Default NCAA Tournament

Can we set up a Forno Bravo NCAA pool? Does anyone know how to do that? Can we set up a space on one of the big sports web sites, or do I have to just enter one of the big online pools?

Being a small business, we don't exactly get to join a big company pool. Which pools do you enter? Work, Internet, etc.

Cal is out, Stanford's on the bubble.

Here's a NY Times article that analyzes how to pick your brackets (other than uniform color and whether your daughter likes the mascot name). I guess I'm going to enter the ESPN pool -- we'll see how it do. I have to give Stanford a first round upset, then they're out.

We'll see. I could probably pay a monkey to throw darts at the draw and they'll beat me.

Here's the article.

Here are some facts on the NCAA tournament:

Ever since the field expanded from 48 to 64 teams in 1985, the lowest-seeded squad to make it to the Final Four was 11th seeded LSU in 1986.

The lowest seed to win the championship was eighth-seeded Villanova in 1985.

A 15 seed has beat a No. 2 four times.

Last year, Florida was a #3 seed.

Here's a good link to the best upsets ever:

CollegeHoopsnet.com - Top Upsets in NCAA history

Maybe a couple of well reasoned upsets are the way to win the ESPN pool. Well, maybe.

Louisville 78: Stanford 58. Brutal. They were down 26 (46:20) at the half. These goes that pick. I wonder how the rest of the Pac10 is going to fare.

While I have always been a UCLA fan - from the Wooden/Lew Alcindor/Bill Walton days - I think that they are over-rated and will go down earlier that expected.

GO BUCKEYES!!! (spent my first 34 years in Ohio - will always be a fan).

Being realistic.....don't see them winning it all. don't rule out Florida, they seem to be back on track after that stinker 2 week period last month.

I was 11 right and 5 wrong day 1, putting me in the 41% percentile in the Yahoo pool. I guess I beat the monkey and the darts, but just barely. We'll see what day two brings.

I did a pretty blind bracket pick (my sports knowledge is pretty slim), but managed 12 correct on day 1.

I only care if my Gators win!
