Alright ladies and gents, it's Tournament Time!!!!
This year, your friends at TNIAAM are hosting a mini bracket challenge for our readers. If you think you can beat the Nunes Magician staff and readers, then add your bracket and play along with us. Your prize for winning? The admiration of your fellow Syracusians.
So, if you think you have what it takes to be king of the mountain, follow along the below steps to put your bracket into contention...
1. Click the following link to go to the Google doc: BRACKET
2. DO NOT MESS WITH THE TEMPLATE PLEASE! Look at the bottom and click on an empty tab. I will try and add new tabs as they fill up, but if there aren't any click the + icon and copy and paste an empty bracket from the first tab onto the new tab.
3. Fill out your bracket!
4. Make sure you change the name of the tab to your name so we can tell who the winner is.
5. I will lock the page at 11:00 am on Saturday
You do not have to pick a play-in game winner, but if you have a play-in team winning the first round against the #1 or #2 seed then you must select which team that will be (these two teams will be decided on Wednesday). Points will be awarded as follows: 2 points for a correct pick in the first round, 4 points for a correct pick in the second round, 8 points for a correct pick in the final four and 12 points for the correct National Champion. Don't forget to put in your final score for the Championship game either, as ties will be decided by the closest total final score.
I will provide updates as we move through the Tourney.
So enjoy yourselves and let's have some good friendly competition! And now....for your viewing pleasure:
The Syracuse Orange will take on the winner of Bryant/Marist in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The game will take place on Sunday at 7:30 pm, and can be seen on ESPNU and heard on WTKW 99.5 FM. Of course you can also follow me @Orangelax for updates throughout the game.
