    Here are the rules. 1 point for every game you guess correctly up until the Sweet 16. From the Sweet 16 the games will be worth 2 points each, the Elite Eight, 3 points each, the final four, 4 points each, if you pick a team in the finals, 5 points each, and if you pick the winner, you get 6 points. Total number of points will be counted at the end, and the member with the highest point total wins.

    Unless I'm misreading this, it seems you have scoring for one more round than there is in the tourney. You are saying 1st and 2nd round games (up until the sweet 16) are 1pt each. Then sweet 1 games (3rd round) are 2 pts. each. Then elite eight games (4th round) are 3pts each. But then you say the final four (5th round) are 4pts. each, and say picking a team in the finals (which already was the final four round) are 5pts. each. Then the title game (6th round) winner is worth 6pts.

    I think you meant to say 1st round games are worth 1, 2nd round are worth 2, SS are worth 3, EE are worth 4, FF are worth 5, and Championship is worth 6. Is that right?

    How about a lifetime membership if anyone predicts a perfect bracket? Not likely, but who knows? On ESPN.com when George Mason went to the final four, a guy still had a perfect bracket going into the final four. That was a miracle.

    I f'n love this time of year. March Madness rules!!!!!!! I've been filling out brackets on ESPN, CBS, Fox, NBC, etc. I normally do relatively well but haven't won anything yet. A couple years ago I was in the top 100 (of like 3 million) on ESPN going into the final four, but then crapped out.

    I am here to clear the confusion...


    1st Round - 1 point

    2nd Round - 2 points

    3rd Round (Sweet 16) - 3 points

    4th Round (Elite 8) - 4 points

    5th Round (Final Four) - 5 points

    6th Round (Finals) - 6 points

    Bonus for picking all Sweet 16 teams correctly: 3 points

    Bonus for picking all Elite 8 teams correctly: 4 points

    Bonus for picking all Final Four teams correctly: 5 points

    Bonus for picking the finals correctly: 6 points

    I guess it's just you vs. me, Term. I figured we'd have more sports fans interested in this on this site.

    We must have a lot of fair weather fans who are awfully disappointed with the bracket.

    2nd Round:

    Terminator: 13 guessed correctly for 26 points.

    IndianaFuzz: 11 guessed correctly 22 points.


    This brings the total to:

    Terminator: 50 points

    IndianaFuzz: 44 points

    Wake was definitely a shocker.
