It's been 10 Years! Can you believe it?!

The tenth annual ACMB Message Board Challenge!! Challenge fellow message boarders in picking the winners in this year's NCAA Division I men's basketball championship tournament.

Are you ready?? Click the link below.

http://acmb.mayhem.cbssports.com

Once you create an account, you can use the link above to join the group and play. You will need your own unique ID and password. If asked for a group password, it's "martyrules."

Create up to 2 brackets under your name to compete against fellow message-boarders.

Rules for 2017:
Same as before. First 2 rounds have a bonus scoring system. 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 2 rounds and make it harder for someone to win it all simply by picking the overall winner.

2008 Winner: klcman
2009 Winner: otteralum
2010 Winner: RonW
2011 Winner: klcman
2012 winner: doug
2013 Winner: ron
2014 Winner: Pugwash
2015 Winner: Pugwash
2016 Winner: clover

After years of spending countless hours researching critical statistics such as RPI, conference wins, defensive and offensive efficiency in order not to embarrass myself as I participate in the esteem ACMB Challenge Bracket I decided to return to the time honored W.A.G. principle. At the very last minute before I submitted my bracket I incorporated the S.W.A.G. method which stands for Scientific Wild Ass Guess. Obliviously several of the top seeds in my bracket are not adhering to the S.W.A.G. philosophy

Apparently your SWAG methodology was slightly different than mine. Of course, if the B1G had won & lost as I picked them, rather than polar opposites.....my numbers would be significntly better!
