OK people, here's the warning. I've only been to two college basketball games in my life. I was there to provide EMS coverage and handed out bandaids/read the entire time I was there. I even had to have my Dad explain this to me before I started it! So don't pick on me if my choices are bad...

Don't worry mehastings, I knew a lady who picked football scores by where she wanted to shop. She ended up winning the office pool.:p

I haven't a clue what you have to do, but if someone explains it, I'll have a go. I live in the UK does that matter?

Do I pick the 16 I think will win from the first games on the links? And then what? How do you know which 8 will be playing which 8? Etc...
 

Sofia

we are just predicting who will advance further....and eventually win
regionals=sweet 16 (8 from each side)
national semi's=elite 8 (4 from each side)
final four=2 from each side
championship=last two teams standing
just make sure whoever you choose isn't playing each other in the first and second round....they cancel each other out....hope you can understand what I tried to explain!!

Not really :confused:

There's 4 sides, so 8 from each would be 32. Or do you mean 8 from the right side and 8 from the left side teams?

By cancel each other out, do you mean not to pick both Duke and Southern U. for the men's team?
 

Sofia

New Member
yes...8 from left...8 from right....and yes, do NOT pick duke AND southern u. because only one of them can advance....you got it:D
