Right now, the tourney itself is still being set up and will be set in stone on Selection Sunday (check out ESPN or whoever else that's doing coverage). However, in the meanwhile, you can sign up and join the CAG group to reserve your spot. The deadline to get your picks in is five minutes before the first game starts on Thursday, March 19.
Entry Guide: Just head to here to create your pick set and then go here and enter the group ID# (68685) and password (cheapyd) to sign up and join the group. The only thing I require of you is to post here if your pick set name or yahoo ID doesn't match your CAG ID so that I know it's you.
If I see people who haven't done this come Wednesday night (March 18), you will be booted. Last year, Yahoo started allowing people to join groups after the tipoff, so if I kick you during the final check just before tipoff, or you were not in at this point, and you join again, you will be banned from the group to prevent that from happening again. I have a list of everyone involved, so you have to be on the list to be eligible to win. I will make a check on the list to line up everyone the night before tipoff and boot anyone I cannot link to a CAG username, so you will have a chance to get back in if you let me know who you are. I will make the final sweep just before tipoff and kick any stragglers left on the list. I also have the ability to alter the rules if other changes to Yahoo's Tourney rules have been made that interfere with the ones for the contest. The group can hold up to 500 people, so I think we'll have enough for anyone that wants to join. If we do reach that total, I'll create a new group for the rest of the CAGs that want to enter.
I will probably pick winners the same way I did last year: the top 3 scorers will get prizes. Depending on how many prizes there are, the top winner will get first pick on the list, then second place, and third place gets what's left.
Feel free to chat about the tourney, your team's chances, and all that fun stuff once you sign up. If you have any questions post here.
Also, keep your posts civil and mature. If you can't do that, then don't post in this thread.
