Yahoo.  I think this works best for everyone.   I took default scoring on everything.  If we need to debate and change scoring we can do that ASAP.

 

If someone already created one, let me know and i'll remove this one.

This is Gonzaga's year.

I'll let you be the optimist.  I'm always a pessimist when it comes to the teams that I root for (and I have a lot of deep ties to this school).  I think it is more out of a sense that I don't want to get my hopes up only to be disappointed.  It's a long tournament. I hope you are right.

You guys want to change the scoring>?   I've always thought default scoring was BS.  If you get lucky and pick the overall winner, you can dominate without picking that many games correctly.

The championship game should be the same as the semis, imo. The getting a lot right early has more meaning.

I've got no preference.  I've always been in the brackets with the "default", so I'm used to it.  At the end of the day it really doesn't matter as long as we are all playing by the same rules.

they have some weird modifiers, maybe we'll try a crazy pick league next year.  or i can create a second one.  Here are some of them:

  •  No bonus points

    Let your predictions speak for themselves. Works with any scoring system.

  •  
  •  Upset Pick bonus

    Bonus points for upset picks add importance to early rounds. Works best with Progressive and Straight scoring.

  •  
  •  Seed Difference bonus

    Seed diference multipliers put heavy emphasis on big upsets in early rounds. Works best with Yahoo Default Scoring.

I have done the seed difference bonus. It is a nice reward for picking the upset. With the traditional scoring of 1 and 2 points for the first 2 rounds there isn't much incentive to pick the upset.

I am not following the difference between upset and seed bonus. The one I did if you pick an 11 to beat a 6 you get 5 bonus points above the normal scoring for that round
