It’s that time again; time to gird your mental loins and deftly maneuver through 63 games and 63 picks en route to a legacy that shall last a lifetime.
Become a pick ‘em legend, nay, a pick’em god.
Or, you know, get your butt whipped and lose half of your Final Four on the first weekend — isn’t that usually how this goes?
We’ve had two sponsors hose us in the last two contests, so there’s no formal prize, per se. But, I’ll probably buy a tee-shirt or shoot some cash or something to the winner. Value: $25.
Anyway, everyone is eligible to enter and win. If you were a member of last year’s pick’em, you probably already have an email invite. If you don’t, here are the pertinents:
Group Name: Roll ‘Bama Roll ‘18
Invite Link: Here (for AOL members, copy and paste the following URL: https://tournament.fantasysports.yahoo.com/t1/group/74371/invitation?key=4272b6c0244f1489&soc_trk=lnk)
We’re rolling with the Progressive Scoring system, which only slightly weights the later rounds, rather than Yahoo’s default scoring, which can knock you out very early in the game: this should keep you most of you competitive even if you have a bad round or lose a Final Four member the first weekend. Think of it as restrictor plate racing...but for pick ‘em.
There’s also an upset bonus: Call the upset, and get one bonus point per upset.
Best of luck to you all, and Roll Tide
P.S. And, if you want to thank Parker and Brent for all their hard work during the basketball season, might I recommend picking up some RBR March Madness swag.
