24TH ANNUAL NCAA MEN’S BASKETBALL POOLNOTICE: YOU MAY REGISTER NOW, BUT THE BRACKETS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE UNTIL MONDAY MARCH 13, 2017
The rules are pretty simple. Each participant will be allowed to complete up to two different brackets. When you register you will be asked for the following:
Brackets must be completed before tip-off on Thursday, March 16, 2017 (we're not including the play-in games). There are no late entries, if you miss signing up before the opening tip, you're out. You should receive confirmation of your entry via e-mail.
The donation is $15 per bracket. If you fill out 2 brackets and only pay for one, the commissioners will decide which bracket stays and which bracket gets eliminated. Each registrant is limited to a maximum of two brackets. Also, for tracking purposes please use your real name or a close facsimile. When you register you are asked to choose a username. This is used for logging in and will not be seen by other players.
Payment must be received by one of the commissioners by Wednesday, March 22, 2017 or you will be disqualified. If you cannot pay by March 22nd you must notify me in some form or fashion. Remember you can always pay then continue to edit your picks prior to Thursday at noon.
PERMANENT RULE CHANGE: We have implemented a change in the FIRST ROUND points. Instead of earning 1 point for each win, you will receive the same points as the team's seed. For example, if you choose a #12 seed to upset a #5 seed team, you would receive 12 points for that game if they win. Those who choose the #5 seed would receive 5 points for a win. This scoring system encourages you to choose underdogs and rewards you when they win.
Please send your check or money order to me personally at:
Due to eh ever growing popularity of the pool, the board of governors has decided to increase the number of payouts to the "Elite 8" which are listed below. Once all the entries have been completed and PAID in full, actual dollar figures will be provided.
Good Luck and as always GO HEELS!!
