There’s no point in me reinventing the wheel here. I’m going to mostly copy and paste this contest from last year’s post — right down to the cool video on bracketology from Five Points Vids, which explains why your retirement plans should not include that million dollars from Yahoo for a perfect bracket. - Erik
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?
I’ll probably buy a tee-shirt or shoot some cash or something to the winner — maybe even a (possibly?) coveted Avery Johnson bobblehead! Value: $25, or thereabout, plus postage...which is remarkably expensive these days, you ingrates.
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:

NEW: I’m rolling with a modified Progressive Scoring system, which slightly weights the later rounds, rather than Yahoo’s default scoring, which can knock you out very early in the game. And I’ve tweaked those points even more. I’ve also added some bonuses and tweaked their weights to help keep most of you competitive even if you have a bad round or lose a Final Four team that first weekend — and you will.
Here’s the scoring system:
