    Go back to the page and search groups TelePickers2018. You should see your entry. I'm at work. Can't check it right this moment. I will list entries when I get home

    What do you mean by “perfect”? I think mine is perfect.:D

    Did you pick any upsets?

    People are saying Murray St and Loyola and New Mexico St are looming in the upset category. If Syracuse beats ASu they will beat TCU too! That's Jamie Dixon from Pitt as the coach at TCU. Man would that be cruel. Kentucky is an enigma. Don't know if they can make a run. Lots of mids moving up against the bigs this year!

    I am quite surprised that there are not more college hoops fans here at the TDPRI. Or, maybe there are, but they are not into the bracket thing.

    Just so you know I have an entry for fun. I am not eligible to win. This is for all of you BB pickin' and a grinnin' fans. Play in games are starting and people are writing more articles about this is the year of the big upsets. I find it hard to believe you are going to knock off Villanova, Virginia, UNC and Duke so easy. But it could happen!

    Get your entries in before I lock them down!

    On Saturday and Sunday March 17th and 18th I am going racing at Willow Springs Ca. I will not be available between 6am and 6pm PST. I will get back with the program each night but I doubt I need to do anything but check the scores and see who is getting it right! Right?!

    Let's get in there and get an entry done. I have my eye on the prize that I will ship to the lucky winner! In the past I have given away a Tele type guitar, mandolin, tube screamer, Roland cube, T-Shirts, Ukelele and more.

    So step up your game and take a chance!

    Time is running out to get in on the fun. It’s easier than you think to fill in a bracket. I know a couple people that didn’t have any basketball knowledge, and they actually won.

    The scoring belongs to ESPN and it is straight up wins and that is it. The best percentage of wins and the rounds are weighted by points. I'll see if I can copy and paste the weighted rounds.

    Step 6 - ACCUMULATING POINTS
    Now you are ready to take on the tournament. The object of the game is simple: Correctly pick the winner of the most matches in the 63 games following the "First Four" round of the tournament. A correct selection in the second round counts as 10 points, and in the third round the point value is doubled. (See the table below for more details about the scoring breakdown).

    ROUND TEAMS GAMES POINTS (each) POINTS (total)
    Second Round 64 32 10 320
    Third Round 32 16 20 320
    Sweet Sixteen (regional semifinals) 16 8 40 320
    Elite Eight (regional finals) 8 4 80 320
    Final Four (semifinals) 4 2 160 320
    National Championship (finals) 2 1 320 320
    Totals -- 63 -- 1920

    So..in the second round there are 64 teams and a possible 32 winners. Those 32 or any amount up to 32 would get 10 points each.
    In the third round there is a possible 16 winners and each of those would get 20 points each....

    you follow?
