Create up to 2 brackets under your name to compete against fellow message-boarders.
Note the changes from 2012:
First 3 rounds have a bonus scoring system -- not just 2. The seed of the winner is added to the regular point total. Thus, a 12 seed would be worth 13 points in round 1 (1 point for 1st round win plus the seed). This should encourage some interesting picks for the first 3 rounds and make it harder for someone to win it all simply by picking the overall winner.
Also, I changed the weight for Final Four and Championship game picks. They were 16 and 32 points and are now 12 and 20 points respectively. This was done to keep the game competitive longer and add more weight to early picks.

2009 Winner: otteralum
