March always comes in like a lion... and so does the RealJock March Madness contest!
As always, the theme is:
"Can You Outpick the Guy Above You?!?"
I'll put up more details later, but for those who already know the drill, here's the Yahoo site to join:
(EDIT: I forgot... if Yahoo asks you for a password to join, it's "reaper"... without the quotes, of course)
Yahoo didn't allow me to resend e-mail invites out to last year's participants, for whatever reason, so I guess this post will have to do! I'll also add a link to this thread in the Basketball forum.
I expect rules (point scoring, maximum 3 brackets per person, etc.) will be the same as last season.
After a wild back-and-forth month of action atop the leaderboard among almost 30 RJ contestants last year,klinci3 is the reigning RealJock champion, and will hopefully be back to defend his title! (last year's thread: http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/3069466) The esteemed jerseywoof was the big winner in 2012.
NCAA Conference champions (automatic bids) will start getting crowned as early as tomorrow night (Harvard/Yale in the Ivy League). As usual I'll post a logo and find some detail for each of the 32 conference champs as they officially make it in.
The Selection Show for the 68 college teams will be at 6 PM Eastern on Sunday, March 16, and probably within an hour after that the brackets will be filled by Yahoo, allowing you to make your predictions. First-round NCAA "play-in" games will be on March 18-19 (you don't get to make picks on those 4 games).
But your selections will get locked in before noon Eastern time, the Tip-Off of the initial second-round game, on Thursday, March 20.
More details to come! Good luck!
