  • i'm in.

    also, anyone who has played in the past knows that i usually donate prizes. well, this year is no different. well, a little different. this year there will only be a prize for the winner. as soon as i figure out what the prize is, i will post it.

    all i ask for is that the prize winner pay the shipping. and once i have the prize figured out, i will be able to give a price for shipping.

  • Ok, I figure those accounts are linked to an overall account and aren't a part of the league as far I can see. Just wanted to make sure cause I didn't see this last year or the year before.
  • Posted: March 21, 2019 6:51:10 pm
  • I am on an airplane and will confirm later. When I looked I didn’t even see one account with those names.

  • in the past, i have normally done prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and last place. however, this year i am only able to do 2 prizes. i will be doing prizes for 1st and last place. the prizes will be mystery priority envelopes.
    - all i ask is that the winners pay the shipping. and the shipping cost will be $8.
    - payments will be accepted via paypal.
    - if a winner does not wish to accept their prize or pay for shipping, it will be offered to the next person.
    - you must have made a legit effort to pick the winners in order to qualify for both prizes. pick mostly lower seeds to win the 1st round will not win you the last place prize.

    all of these stipulations are the same as i've used in the past and are approved by dough boy.

    now, all that being said, good luck to everyone.

    heading into round 2, i still have ....

    27 / 32
    14 / sweet 16
    8 / elite 8
    4 / final 4
    2 / final 2
    and my champons are still in.

  • Posted: April 8, 2019 4:31:12 pm
  • So, who won? And how many did they get correct?
  • Posted: April 9, 2019 7:59:10 pm
  • I am Zatara949 on ESPN and I scored a total of 1410 points. I picked the championship game correctly and the winner. I had 12 of the Sweet 16 correct but only 2 of the Elite 8. This is the best I've ever done on any brackets.
