2012 NCAA Team Championship FITD

EDIT: I created a tennisrecruiting private pool for just tennisforum people! I think this will be a lot easier and you can win prizes so I hope you all enter! It will also keep track of points/standings etc. automatically

Re: 2012 NCAA Team Championship FITD

I've won it before, so am not overly ambitious

As usual, will predict for some upset, just for fun. Everybody predicting STAN or UF win would be NO FUN

You know I'll put USC for the winner

But wait..have to study for the exam

Re: 2012 NCAA Team Championship FITD

Am I the only one who hates seeing all top four Pac-12 schools in the same half? I'm not surprised by it based on the rankings but I prefer seeing different match-ups in the later rounds. I'm also worried for my Bruins because they will likely face Cal in the quarterfinals who I think UCLA doesn't match up well against. I'll post my picks later.

Exactly. It's boring I wanted PAC 12 vs SEC/ACC showdowns

Duke has a cakewalk draw, provided they can get through UVA which they should...

Re: 2012 NCAA Team Championship FITD

First Round correct picks receive 1 point(s)
Second Round correct picks receive 2 point(s)
Round of 16 correct picks receive 4 point(s)
Quarterfinals correct picks receive 8 point(s)
Semifinals correct picks receive 16 point(s)
Championship correct picks receive 32 point(s)

I really don't think this is fair Shouldn't all choices weigh equal pts? Always didn't understand that method
