The Griddle NCAA Tournament contest returns (the drive for 100!)
by Bob Timmermann
For the second straight year, an eternity for most people, I will be hosting an NCAA Tournament contest here on the Griddle through Yahoo! The group will be called "The Griddle" and will be group #38980 and the password to join will be "griddle". I like simplicity.
There will be prizes, including:
Having your name on the sidebar (unless it's something obscene or profane) until the next tournament. Right now, last year's champ Suffering Bruin has his name on the sidebar. Suffering Bruin's key to victory last year, of course, was picking UCLA to lose to Florida. Remember, pick winners with your head, not your heart.
I'll bump up this thread as we get closer to the start of the tournament next Thursday.
Added prize! The winner can also opt to receive an OFFICIAL Pac-10 Tournament Oregon State t-shirt, XXL only. You may cover over the k and t in basketball if you wish.
The server will likely be busy the first few hours. But you have until right before the first game tips off Thursday morning to fill out a bracket.
UPDATE - There are 66 entries in the contest as of 1:30 pm today. There were over 100 last year and it came down to the final game. Time to go find your favorite algorithm to pick winners. Is there wisdom in crowds? What counts for more: RPI, SOS, W-L?
