Thread: NCAA Tournament Upset Special

  1. #1

    NCAA Tournament Upset Special

    I don't want to infringe on Turk's Upset Special copyright. So I'll post a suggestion instead.

    We need an NCAA Tournament upset special thread.

    I'm thinking something like this:

    • Skip the play-in games
    • Post round to round Upset Specials (just like the weekly posts for NFL games)
    • Set the Round of 64 upset bar at 10-seeds and lower for the first real round
    • Points awarded for seed disparity (12 beats a 5 = 7 points] in round one
    • Two point multiplier awarded for seed disparity in the Round of 32
    • Three point muliplier for seed disparity in Sweet Sixteen
    • Four point multiplier in the Elite Eight
    • Five point multiplier the Final Four


    As Upset Special Top Dog, I look forward to kicking all your behinds. Again.

    We pick one game per round. If you blow a pick, you get to keep picking in the later rounds. Winner gets nothing but bragging rights.

    I'll fire the opening shot. In the West Region the #13 Oakland University Golden Grizzlies will upset the #4 Texas Longhorns for 9 points.
    Screw you guys, I'm going home.

  5. I like it GoBig, who's going to track everybody's picks and points?

    I nominate GoBig for accounting purposes.

    Oh if we only had a trained accountant on this site.......

    Have you seen any Oakland games GB?

    It would be a hefty job the first weekend. I'll take one region & PM you the results for posting. Any takers on the other three?

    Need a pick format. Picks should in this format: West Region #13 OU over #4 Texas for 9 points. Submissions like 'OU' will be disregarded.

    Yes. They beat Tennessee, almost beat Michigan State. They played a badass non-conference schedule.

    That little bam-box of an arena they play in is a GREAT place to see a game live.

    You gotta watch out for that - a big guy showed up at work today, beat me and took my lunch money. He said "Don't mess with the Top 10... Bottom 5 again mofo".

    Or maybe he said "mofc" - my ears were ringing.
