It's March Madness time. If any of you are doing pools and want to open it to people on this board (at your own risk), put up your link or directions.

A ton of you have already started Facebook pools, and I'm sure many others are setting up ESPN, Yahoo, and other pools.

We're also equal-opportunity, so specify the men's or women's tournaments.

My facebook pool is better

My facebook pool is less generalized... living in Indiana, I've only heard of "Its Academic" through this board.

I'm awaiting the fourth annual official hsquizbowl.org pool on ESPN to compose my entries.

Speaking of, is Slade still alive? I haven't seen him around these parts in a long while.

I was referring to the Sports forum specifically, though I did miss that post.

Am alive, just haven't been around as much. I have, however, undergone a subtle change in avatar appearances.

Needs more Sabu. Also, I am glad you are defending your title this year in the challenge.

So I guess the Yahoo group is the official HSQB-endorsed one this year?

The ESPN one has quite a few people on it.

I don't know if it will be the "officially endorsed" HSQB pool. There are tons of facebook pools running among teams as well.

I hadn't seen the ESPN one when making that query; I think based on inertia that will be the one that somebody can claim to be the HSQB Champion from.

Yeah, it was called Quiz Bowl instead of hsquizbowl like it was last year.

ESPN is, in my mind, the official league since that's where we played the past few years. TRADITION

Sorry, no one was making it, so I did. And I forgot about that.

Sadly, George Mason screwed my bracket up last year. I forget who the defending champ is, but I am going for my 3rd title in 4 years now...

I wonder who Matt Weiner picked in the Duke vs. VCU match.

Nice 16 for 16 result, Weiner.

I'd be more intrigued with his VCU-Pitt selection in R2.

Still a reminder... join the Women's Tournament pool (ESPN). Join the Quiz Bowl Group, password naqt.

I have four brackets of unofficial random picks for that tournament. Should I have them join the group just to make it look bigger?

Join the group... it's always fun to have a few more people.

After the first round, Matt Weiner and I are tied for the lead at 28 of 32 correct picks.

In the second round of the tournament, you have Old Dominion beating Davidson.

haha that's exactly what I did:

Hopefully SIU can make it to the final four still and Winthrop can make it to the elite 8, if so then I will be the black belt master of bracket pwnage. If only I had devoted more research to the 8-9 games, I would be in much better shape (why I picked Marquette over MSU I have no idea).
