Gauging interest in an AARoads Forum bracket challenge
« on: March 03, 2021, 08:57:17 AM »

Curious who might be interested in filling out a bracket once the college basketball tournament starts?

No wagers, but the winner receives bragging rights on the forum.  :-D

I wanted to ask early to see who might be interested, and which site I can use to host the pool. Iím thinking either Yahoo or CBS Sports. Iíve used the latter to run workplace pools and theyíre easy to set up and track.

Any takers?

Oh cool, glad to see some interest.

If someone here already runs one, I'll gladly let him. Otherwise I'll look into setting one up.

Yes. And I may do a mock-up bracket as well like I did in 2016-18. I remember 2018, which was the only time ever a number 16 seed defeated a number 1 and busting most of the brackets.

Deal me in. Basketball isnít one of my favorite sports but this year Iíve made sure to watch more college basketball, as Iím intent on building a bracket dynasty within my family. Might as well expand my reign to AARoads as well, right?

Whether a team makes the playoffs isn't comparable to whether they are above .500. Part of making the playoffs is getting the wins when you need them to get in, which Brady/Belichick always found a way to do. That's skill. Being above .500 or below .500 is just however things shake out. That's luck.

Hereís the details on the group I set up.

I used ESPN. Youíll need to create a free account. Iím using the app, but I imagine the site is similar. Hereís the details.

- When you choose to create a bracket, you have an option to join a group.

- The group is AARoads Forum and the password is interstate366 (lower case)

- For the name of your bracket, please use your forum name so we know who is who.

- Iíll post results after each round.

Good luck, everyone!!
