    Get in the action now: http://games.espn.go.com/tournament-challenge-bracket/en/group?groupID=76385&ex_cid=tcmen-invite-email

    Make sure you "finalize" your team. If you look at the list of participants and you have a 0 for PPR (points possible remaining) then you are not ready to go.

    Rules:

    1 entry per person
    Entry name should be your ComicBookRealm.com member name

    If you would like to "wager" some comics on the action you can do so below, but it is entirely optional.

    Comic Wager:

    As we are getting ready for another March Madness, there was some discussion about a wager. I think we are going to go forward with it. Everyone can enter the contest for free, only those that pay the entry fee have a shot at winning the prize.

    The entry fee from everyone who chooses to do it is 5 comics. These can be any 5 comics that you have. The only criteria is that they must be in NM+ condition if they are Bronze Age or higher. If you want to put in Silver Age you can.

    Everyone will mail me their comics and I will store them until the tourney is over. The winner gets everything (must pay whatever shipping is). Since we are a month away from the start if you want to enter you need to get your comics in now. I will post comics here once I receive them so everyone knows what they are playing for.

    If you want to enter, please PM me to request my address. Again, everyone can play for free (for bragging rights), but if you want to win the comics you have to enter that as well.

    Good Luck!

  • Man I knew I was bent over the very first day. Harvard ruined my surprise of the tourney. It went south quickly. Enjoy my donation... heh.

    actually, qlorn is ahead of me, tied for 5th.
    but he's only got 2 of his final 4 and 1 of his championship left.

  • For some reason I had 1,2,2,3 final four in my head before I even looked at the bracket.
    So I was no going chalk early on.
    I am really surprised that I am tied for 5th. Looking at my bracket, all I see is what I picked wrong heh.

    This has got to be one of the biggest mess year's in recent tourney history. I dont think anyone left in the tourney is out of the final four. Heck even LaSalle or Wichita St.

    I so wanted to see NM St. trounce Az. Harvard again messes up my bracket first day. I really need to stop picking against them every year.

    I am honestly amazed that I am even in the race, but I feel the Miami doesnt go all the way I will be out soon. I think my PPR is much lower than both of yours... and regardless... DB also has Miami in the Finals. I need Duke to lose like they are playing Maryland.

    I guess its just us three in the tourney for the books?

    Whoever wins, at least its a close race. I have the lead now between us 3, but feel DB will take the lead next and 1573 for the win in the end.
