OK, now that I know there's still interest I have renewed our group from last year...

http://tournament.fantasysports.yahoo.com/men

Registration info:
Group ID#: 25948 (use this, not the group name, to register)
Password: bracketology

If you were in the group last year, an invite to return has been sent to you via email.

As of this post, you have 2 WEEKS to register. Registration closes when the first game on March 19 tips off, which is currently scheduled for 11:20 AM ET that day.
Remember, the play-in game DOES NOT COUNT. It is not used in this game.

It's still called MMA Playground 2008...

Also, I joined and once I did, I received a message saying that the league is now full...it's only set up for one member to join.

I sent you an e-mail regarding this, BTW...

Uh, it shouldn't be. The only limit is that each person can have only one bracket in the group, but at least 4 people are already in.

Edit: Sorry, nothing I can do about the group name. It carried over when I renewed.

Would've done this last night but I had to drop my car off for repairs and had to do my bracket, my work PC won't display it properly.

If you still want to join you have until the first game tips off Thursday, at which point all brackets are locked and registration closes. Remember, tonight's play-in game IS NOT part of the game. Your brackets will be updated accordingly tomorrow morning with the winner vs. Louisville.

One last bump, as of this post you have 5 HOURS to join and/or complete your brackets, so don't forget!

Good luck to all participants! (PS-don't forget to print out your bracket and take it to KFC for that 30 Hot Wings for $16 deal. I would but I'm a Popeye's person)

Also, you can watch all the 1st round games today (and probably all weekend) LIVE AND FREE online by going to mmod.ncaa.com/video. If direct linking doesn't work I got to it via Yahoo Sports. It also has On Demand replays and Historical Highlights. I know I'll be using this at work today. & tomorrow.

Same here. Best thing ever. And I hate basketball.

Hopefully it works for everyone, I tried to load it at work and kept getting ads. Maybe it's my work PC. I'll just have to use GameChannel on Yahoo to get score updates.

UPSET ALERT: Memphis is having HUGE trouble with Cal State Northridge. 6:30 to go and Memphis leads by only 1...that's now 3 with 6 minutes left, but CSUN has kept it close.

If Memphis loses, I'll not watch another damn game in the tournament.

After the weekend's games I'm going to create a Second Chance group since Yahoo's launched that game now. This allows you to create another bracket for round 3 on. The overall winner in that game will win $5000.

Edit: early scores:
LSU 75, Butler 71.
Memphis 81, Cal State Northridge 70.
Texas A&M 79, BYU 66.

Time to update group scores with the Final 4 set (note: A player's max possible score now is in parentheses):
1 Syracuse Orangemen 94 (94)
2 DCRage 90 (138)
2 The Metal Maniac 90 (106)
4 higdon10 86 (134)
5 chuckw94 85 (149)
6 Wiggidy What!?!?!?! 84 (100)
6 Dunkin' My Balls 84 (100)
8 roadking95th 83 (131)
9 Grappler 82 (130)
10 Basshandsome 76 (124)
11 cowcatcher sucks 71 (71)
12 +2 Underdog Bonus 68 (68)
13 PTP'ers 62 (62)
Among those with any real chance still to win the group, 5 of the 6 are picking Carolina to win it all, 1 picked UConn. Syracuse Orangemen, enjoy the 5-6 days you'll be in 1st because you'll need about 15 miracles to win the group.

I'll post the final standings when they're updated Tuesday but it's pretty much over now save for position shifts if Carolina wins. It doesn't matter too much to me because the final outcome has been determined already.


I win.
