    [SIZE=-1]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 [SIZE=-1]let me know i[SIZE=-1]f you[SIZE=-1] have[/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE] any question[SIZE=-1]s[SIZE=-1].[/SIZE] (I am open [SIZE=-1]to discussion on the[SIZE=-1] 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.

    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.
