March Madness 2014

Post by Woody »

Are we doing it this year? I remember doing it last year with you guys, and it was a lot of fun. \:D/

Edit: I changed the topic title. Don't hate me. xD -AE

Edit: I added a link to last year's thread. Don't hate me either. -bookworm

I have a bad feeling about picking Michigan this year. :(

Is it bad that I filled out my brackets based on which names I liked? :-k
Haha I wonder how many of the games I'll actually watch. :P \:D/

I've got none of the No. 1 teams making Final Four and NC Central being the surprise to make it all the way there. Fortunately they lose to Michigan on their glorious championship run. \:D/

I filled out my bracket last year without a clue what I was doing (as I do every year \:D/ ) and ended up having pretty much two perfect legs! O.O I had the Midwest right all the way to the final, just didn’t pick the winner, and I was only 3 away from a perfect East.

Out of curiosity, people who fill their bracket without a clue..how long does it take you? :)

And I'm really trying to enter again this year. When's the deadline? :anxious:

It took me around 10 minutes....part of that was because I couldn't figure out why it wouldn't let me submit my bracket.....until I realized I hadn't picked a winner ](*,) :P I guess for some reason they think that is important. \:D/

For some reason. People are so picky these days. :roll: *mumbles something about when I was a kid*
Okay, 10 minutes is good. I usually take around a half an hour to do my bracket..which is crazy since I don't know hardly anyone. x) I took about 15 this time. Whew.
