    See how you stack up against your fellow DBSTalk members.

    Go to Yahoo's tournament site and fill out a bracket:

    Group ID: 85732
    Password: play2win

    For those who are interested, I'm also running an optional $5 pool for the tournament.Click here for details.

    This pool is entirely separate from the website and is a private affair. You do NOT have to pay into the pool just to sign up for competition purposes.

    BRACKETS CLOSE: Thu Mar 17 12:15pm EST

    Oh well, only 7 players. So who's who? I'm not certain who a couple of players are based on the email/yahoo ids.

    Danny's Pick-em = me, Danny R
    Tusk = Tusk
    Guido_UL = Ray Clum
    This isn't fantasy football? = cdru
    Sparkman = ???
    Kani = mwgiii
    The Sage's Collection = ???

    We'll it looks like I'm in first place again in this contest. Woo hoo. Of course so are the rest of you but I'll ignore that fact.

    Good luck everyone. Looks like it could be interesting come the later rounds.

    Currently Sage is in the lead, no mistakes at all yet after the first 4 games.

    Sparkman is in 2nd I believe, with 3 out of 4. But his taking Alabama up to the sweet 16 might cost him points later.

    Sage is a genius thus far, going 8 for 8.

    Go Huskies!! EweDub has a very fun team to watch this year. They are soooooo quick they can crash six, count 'em six, guys to the boards and never get beaten going to other way. Catch 'em if you can.

    Wow Sage... 14 out of 16 of the first games. Not too shabby!

    Wow, what I'd do to have that accuracy. Sage is mopping up with 18 of 20 games correctly predicted.

    By chance do you have tonight's lottery numbers?

    He should have done a Pick-10 in Vegas. Correctly pick 10 teams against the spread and a $20 bet becomes $12,000. Helluva lot more then the $15 he could have won here.

    It's still fairly close. Most of the effect of the upsets can be minimized if they go out the next round. Only Alabama, LSU, and UCLA did people pick to go into round 3.

    Some of the higher seeded teams though need to figure out what's going wrong in their game. LSU got walked over, and Wake Forest and Ok. St both struggled for a while before pulling ahead.

    Sage is up to 22 of 24 now.

    Of course second round might turn things for the rest of us. Nobody seems to have made a critical error and picked a team for the finals that's been eliminated yet.

    Can I suck any worse at this? In the three games I'm in, I'm in last place in every one.

    I too am in 3 different pools. I have no idea how I'm doing in my other bracket as it's not scored until the end (hand scored). My other pool I'm in is a grid. I have 2-9 and 3-7 as my W-L last digit number. I've come close a few times, but haven't hit yet. C'est la vie. So much for illegal office gambling.

    For those that are interested, Yahoo does have a scenario generator where you can play with who wins in the later rounds and what effect it has on the scoring.

    Yeah, that is rather run to play with. I do still theoretically have a chance to win if everything goes down my way for the remainder of games.
