    Cyburbia March Madness Challenge

    For those that missed my post in this thread: http://www.cyburbia.org/forums/showt...165#post129165

    I've created a group on Yahoo's Tournament Pick'Em for those wanting to challenge yourselves against the rest of the "throbbing brain."

    Group ID# 53199
    password: plan

    As of now, there's 4 that have joined up....

    By tip off of the first game, which is Thursday around noontime.

    Join the group, fill out your brackets, and you earn points if your selected teams win.

    Pretty straight forward.

    I'm in. Interestingly, somebody has "Gedunker" as a Yahoo username -- and it ain't me. Who'da thunk it?

    I just noticed that Michigan State could play Western Michigan in the title game… No matter who won, or who lost, I would leave town and call the insurance company and double my coverage for a week.

    But the odds of that happening are about the same as Tom Izzo from MSU calling me and asking me to be the starting center.

    I had Manhattan (5 falls to 12 every year for the past 18 straight).
    Unfortunately, my dislike of "the General" led me to take Charlotte over Texas Tech

    0 for 2 so far. :-P

    Like I said, I haven't watched a single game this year....I'm content if any of my picks win a game.

    I'm BeachHoopsters. I picked Manhattan and I changed it back to Florida about an hour before the tipoff. That's what I get for over analyzing. At least the Terps pulled it out.

    No need now to worry about calling the insurance agent, Mike.
    Who the hell invited Seton Hall, anyway?
