You are all welcome to join this competition. Participation in the round of 64 is unnecessary. Feel free to jump in before the start of any round.

Rules:


Two point multiplier awarded for seed disparity in the Round of 32 (#7 beats a #2 + 5 x 2 = 10 points) You get the idea.
Three point muliplier for seed disparity in Sweet Sixteen
Four point multiplier in the Elite Eight
Five point multiplier the Final Four


The only qualifier going forward for picking an upset is this: Lower seeded teams are the underdog. Given the scoring system, strong seed disparity may be key.

All Round of 32 picks are due by noon on Sat. 3/19.

Leaders thru Round 1:

Docta: Morehead St. for 9 points
Kaba: Richmond for 7 points
DaBearsFan: Richmond for 7 points
Colts: Gonzaga for 5 points
PolishGuy: Marquette for 5 points

The Doughnut Club:

GoBig: Oaklund U for 0 points
Pruitt: Missouri for 0 points
Turk Schonert: Utah State for 0 points
Clem: Memphis for 0 points

Although it goes against my better judgment by going with Clem, I'll take #11 Gonzaga over #3 BYU for 16 points.

I will come with my upset pick later, but this is the only time I will be able to brag about being in first in the Bracket Challenge so far and having correctly called every first round upset so far with exception of Morehead State/Louisville.. of course the man who started it all Turk, it right on my heels so I won't be up top long

/in interest of full disclosure, I also had Michigan State making Elite 8 so yea, like they say better to be lucky then good

Even Vegas had Gonzaga favored by 2. I wasn't totally out of line.

Looks like Vegas underestimated the power of Jimmer.
