  • WtW Tournament Bracket Challenge

    As we have done for the past several years, we have a group tournament bracket challenge. The group is now set up and ready for everyone to join. The bracket is on ESPN.com. Go to ESPN.com and fill out your bracket. Then join the group:

    WavingTheWheat
    Password: SviFor3

    You may have up to 2 brackets per user, so if you'd like create one for the teams you actually think will win the games and one for who you'd LIKE to see win. Or create one containing a lot of upsets. However you want to do it. Stats and standings updated by ESPN. All brackets must be filled out by tip-off of the first game (I assume on Thursday? ... or maybe by tomorrow for the play-in rounds?)

    Speaking of bracket challenges: If you go to Bing.com and look at their bracket challenge, they have the odds of each team winning each game. (Not sure where the odds come from.) They have KU going to the national title game and losing to Virginia in that game.

      Yet another reason to ditch google for bing

      FiveThirtyEight gives us a 7% chance to win the whole thing - far behind all the other 1 seeds not named Xavier, as well as behind Duke and MSU in our region. Trust those pasty, white dorks from Redmond at your own peril.

    I tired accessing our bracket but it said the password: Svistopdrivingtothebasketyounohandleshitstain was incorrect. Please advise.

      No, I think Bill Self was last year's password. Unless I screwed up. Which is entirely possible.

      You all should save your time and not bother filling out a bracket because I’m winning this thing.

            So...it turns out that there is a country-wide school "Walkout For Gun Violence Prevention" on March 14th and everyone is encouraged to wear orange on that day as a show of solidarity with the students. That's what's supposed to happen.

            What's ACTUALLY going to happen is that it's going to look like Syracuse has the largest fanbase in the history of the NCAA Tournament as they open the first round against ASU that day.

              I literally don't have anything orange to wear. Does that mean I love guns?

              I think it just means that you support school shootings and/or ASU.

            My bracket is entirely based on kenpom ranking. We'll see how he does!

              So you have Virginia over Nova in the final? You factor in Virginia losing their "6th man of the year"?

              Straight up kenpom. I'm not factoring in shit.

              I've done that before, and it turned out very badly for me.

            My bracket is based on beer, hot sauce, and chips. It's spicy

              So who else changed their bracket just cause that UVA guy's injury? From final four to SS

                It's tempting. I had them winning it all. Now where do they go out?

                I had them going out in the S16 before the injury. I’m still comfortable with that pick.

              Why are people entering multiple times? I thought this was for bragging rights. What’s the point of filling out more than one bracket?

                Im rolling with one. I don’t need multiple brackets to win.

                You get two. That's our tradition. For me, I tend to fill out one that leans more "chalk" and one that leans more "upset." But I never win, so what do I know?

                I’m not trying to disrupt what has always been done here, but I’ve always said you lose bragging rights if you enter more than one bracket. One is a true test of what you expect, 2 or more is just playing different scenarios to improve your odds.
                I’m sticking with one also.
