March Madness Anyone?

I created a free league in Yahoo....

http://tournament.fantasysports.yaho...team?GID=41202

Group Name - Taco Madness
Password - taco

It's a fun free thing I like to do! (Create your bracket now and make your picks after the 17th.)

Note: I'd prefer that when you create your bracket that you give it the same name as your user ID here. This way we know who you are and can give proper recognition!


Enjoy!

You can make your picks on the 17th and the deadline is the 21st this year.

Scoring

Yahoo finally got smart and has allowed me to customize scoring! All correct picks for every round are now worth 1 point. There are also bonus points awarded based on the seed difference. Here is Yahoo's explanation....

Seed Difference Bonus – Seed difference bonuses give bonus points for picking lower-seeded teams correctly. If you correctly select a lower-seeded team, you will earn a bonus of the difference between the seeds times the bonus multiplier for the round.

For example, if you correctly picked a 10th seeded team over a 6th seed in round two, and round two has a multiplier of 3, you would earn (10 - 6) * 3 = 12 bonus points.

So I have made the bonus seed scoring as follows:
Round 64 - 6x Mulitplier
Round 32 - 5x Mulitplier
Round 16 - 4x Mulitplier
Round 8 - 3x Mulitplier
Round 4 - 2x Mulitplier
Round 2 - 1x Mulitplier

Please let me know if you have any questions. (I am open to discussion on the scoring as well, feel free to chime in if you have a better method.)

Oh please. The choke masters? Every time I pick them to go deep in the tourney they go belly up in the first or second rounds. I'm a Carolina fan anyway so I don't mind not picking them lol.

OK guys, I am making my last ditch effort to get you excited and get some people to create brackets!

Don't make me start posting ugly chicks on here!

We'll get you at the end of the season, even if we are beaten by a fifteenth seed. Ain't nothing wrong with some nerds that can ball. When they choke, it's bad.

Deadskins? Sorry. Born in CA so I'm a niners fan. That was back when LA had the Raiders and the Rams too. Rams were just laughable, and you couldn't wear Raiders colors (gang colors), so I grew up cheering the 49ers. I could barely talk the day after the superbowl this year from yelling at the TV all night.
