Topic tags/keywords: march madness pool bracket challenege

Its that time of year again. March Madness is back and so is that 3rd Annual LJ’s Bracket Madness Challenege. Its totally free and you dont need to know beans about college basketball to play.

If you’re not familiar with how it works there are 64 mens college basketball teams entered into a tournament in 4 seperate regions. The teams are seeded 1-16 in each of those 4 regions. 1 seed the most likely to win, the 16 seed most likely to lose. The final four teams remaining meet in the “Final Four” (pretty creative huh?) and the last remaining 2 teams play for the national championship.

Last year we gave away a free vintage gouge, this year Ill be upping the ante a bit and offering a free saw sharpening (you ship to me). So if you’ve got an old hand saw or back saw kicking around that you always wished to have work like new again this is your chance.

Here’s the link to join:

Well on one hand, I’ve always loved the Orange, but I attended a basketball camp back in.. summer 2002? at UK.. Had dinner with Tubby Smith and a couple players.. Jules Camara.. (Tubby was a family friend of the people we stayed with). I still have the shirt that the entire team signed.

Can’t cheer against a team that will do that for you, can you?

Fair enough … dinner with Tubby would have given me the same feeling, he was a class act.

I’m in. This will be my first time to not pick with my heart (I think all my TX teams are in for an early exit). Soooo, GO MISSOURI!

Well, the girlfriend is a Michigan Stater, and since Michigan State was THE ONLY ONE of the top 4 ranked teams to win this past weekend…

Michigan State earned the other No. 1 seed and was the only one of the four top-billed teams to win its conference tournament.

GO Michigan State Spartans!

MSU has a legit shot … Drayman Green is a beast! Mizzou aint no joke either LarryEnglish is a real mismatch for a lot of teams. Its always interesting … now if only the Huskies could bring back Kemba Walker.

Brandon – sorry my knowledge of LBSU is pretty minimal, or well, non existant.

My knowledge of LBSU is pretty minimal as well—it was where I did my undergrad and I noticed that they squeaked into the tournament this year, but I don’t know anything about their team. Where I’m at for grad school doesn’t even have a basketball team, so I’ll probably root for one of the ACC teams instead.

I’m in! Thanks for setting this up. And no, I didn’t claim LBSU to win it all. :-)
