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 2015:
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

Shobo - "what are the standings in the ACMB?"
Me - "you are sitting in 7th with 3 of 4 teams in the final 4."
Shobo - "who is winning?"
Me - "Not sure of his screen name but Larry is winning but only has 2 of 4 teams"
Shobo - "Who else am I beating?"
Robo - "you are ahead of KLCMan"
Shobo - *evil grin*

A few years ago when I won, it was because I scored heavy on the upsets without picking the winner. This year I sit 10th with a final between MSU and Wisconsin. If MSU wins will I?

When you pick as poorly as I did early on, it makes no difference that I have Wisconsin winning it all. frown
