MARCH MADNESS!!! NCAA HOOP FANS, PICK YOUR FINAL FOUR!!!

Postby Paperback Writer » Tue Mar 07, 2006 3:08 pm

Any college hoop fans out there? If your a big fan, or casual fan - this time of year only - this is the place for a simple contest. Pick 4 and only 4 teams that you think will make it to the "Final Four." The person with the most teams wins. Tie Breaker: Winning margin total of team(s) winning "great 8" game. Pick 'em pal!

My four teams in no particular order:

West Virginia
North Carolina
Ohio State
Uconn

I LOVE March Madness! Its my favorite sporting event of the year!!

However, I will hold off on my final four picks until the brackets come out on Sunday. I would love to pick my beloved Michigan State Spartans, but I just don't think they have it this year! :-\

Maccasthman - what's in the pool? How about a 10-CD set of unreleased Macca tracks - with a Wings/McCartney warm-up jersey?!?!?!

You cant really pick them until you see which brackets they are in....if i had to pick 4 from anywhere, i'd go with Duke, UConn, Ohio State (of course!) and 'Zaga..but..let's wait until selection Sunday....

Right Steve-O, those are my preliminary picks to get the ball rolling and intererest up -which looks good! Even if one knows NOTHING! about college hoops, I urge everyone to join in the fray.

Just look in Mondays's paper - if you can wait that long - after Selection Sunday and pick four teams. You do not have to know any thing about basketball - pick a team by school nick-name, geography, school colors, mascot, where you stayed up and partied all night, streaked once many years ago - just pick four teams and your chances, may be as good as the "experts!"

Steve-O, How does a deadline entry of One Hour before tip-off on Thursday sound? Problem: What time will that be in Mike's Macca-Time Clock?????????

Sir Derek, Hoyas, (Runnin) Rebels, that would be Georgetown and UNLV!
They appeared in 1990 and 1984, in Macca years, that's:

Give My Regards to Broad Street vs. Tripping the Light Fantastic

Mismatch!

NCAA brackets are out!

You don't have to know what your doing, just pick four teams that will meet in The Final Four (semi-finals).
If you know your hoops, this will be the easiest bracket game around. If you have a favorite school, school nick-name, teams's colors - or need to use a dart-board - just pick four teams!

Deadline 04:00 on 3-16-06, MACCA CENTRAL time, (see the clock at the top of the posts.)

Any Macca related/inspired picks appreciated, just spell it out if it's not obvious. Not a hoop fan? Just put on the games with the sound down and Macca on the stereo, have you ever done this with Rockestra on? Unreal! If I owned a team or franchise in any sport, this would be the official stadium song blaring out to get everyone going!)
