Final Four: Enter WFNY’s NCAA Tournament Challenge

We had hoped of getting this to the masses earlier this week, but better late than never.

The details are as follows:

  1. You’ll want to go here — Yahoo! Sports Tournament Pick’em
  2. If there are issues, the group number is 173147; the password is wfny
  3. Winner will get a slew of WFNY swag thrown their way. We have shirts, stickers, stuff…we’ll take care of you. We always do.
  4. Use your commenter handle where appropriate — it’s always nice to relate.
  5. Tell your friends. The more the merrier!

Good luck, kids. Go Buckeyes.

    This tournament will definitely be a challenge I don’t think you’ll see many #1s last until the end.

    shush. don’t be giving things away until brackets are locked in

  • Vindictive_Pat

    Haha. This has more to do with me living in Richmond (where VCU is) than giving away any secrets. You hear than Northeast Ohioans? The Zips are unstoppable!

  • mgbode

    I cannot get carried away with any local teams. No Texas team even made the tourney.

    The Longhorns weren’t even good enough for the NIT, which accepted Stephen F. Austin University.

    Also, I realized my final four were all Big Ten teams. Whoops

    I cannot waiitttt

    I have watched exactly zero point zero seconds of basketball this year. I’d say I’ve got this thing pretty well wrapped up. Feel free to withdraw your brackets at any point, suckas! (Please nobody tell me that Ohio State has no chance of winning.)

    In another pool, my daughter picked all teams based their mascot – not what the mascot represents, but the actual mascot, you know, the sweaty plush costume worn by the sophomore that couldn’t walk on to the football team or the actual sedated animal that sits on the sideline. Based on this, it appears infallible that Butler will win because “that bulldog is sooooo cute.”

  • Garry_Owen

    She’s 7. And may be right.

  • FearTheRoo

    I’ve watched the Zips all season and can honestly say they have no chance. They drew the worst possible opponent in the tourney.

  • mgbode

    rule #1 on brackets is: don’t bet against Stevens. maybe, it’s just based on that bulldog?

  • Vindictive_Pat

    I usually pick the MAC winner to advance to the Sweet Sixteen, just on principle, but this year I just wasn’t feeling it. I watched that Ohio/Akron game and came away thinking that neither team would be able to beat a 4 or 5 seed this year.

  • Vindictive_Pat

    I feel for you, bro-de. It’s strange to not see any Texas teams participating in March Madness… especially UT. I’m so used to picking them to get knocked out earlier than their seeding would suggest.

  • mgbode

    one of the joys of March Madness here is seeing the city get all amped up about the team. then, shrug on those early round exits because they really don’t care about basketball.
