Let the MADNESS begin!

Congrats to Unreel on the win last year! And also to those in the Top 10 of 46 in the pool last year.

Once again, we have started an end of the season college basketball pool on cbssportsline.com for anyone who is interested. We have our own group webpage, complete with our own message board on the CBS Sportsline website. The pool is for bragging rights only, and no money will exchange hands. It's completely free to sign up and participate in the pool. Managers: esoxcpr, Bucky10 and Gator43 Rules are as follows: Contestants will pick the winners of each bracket game after they are announced. Points will be awarded for each correct pick. First round games are worth 1 point each, second round games are 2 points each, and so on all the way to the championship game which is the sixth round, and thus worth 6 points. Tie break will be the TOTAL SCORE of the championship game. Meaning the total number of points scored by both teams in that game. All picks and everything associated with the pool can be done online on our pools personal website, including LIVE scores while the games are being played. Anyone who wants in, send a messenger to one of the managers with an email address where an invitation to play can be sent. Remember, we need a valid email address to send the invitation for you to be able to access the pool website. You have to register (for free) on the cbs sportsline website from the link that will be emailed to you to be able to access the pool website. If you have any trouble doing so, let one of the managers know and we'll do our best to get you all straightened out.

I'll also ask that everyone use their Lake-Link handle on the pool website so we all know who is who.

HOW TO CHANGE YOUR NAME IN THE STANDINGS TO YOUR LL HANDLE: Go to the 'Options' tab, then select 'Personal' and then change 'Your Name' to your LL handle. Remember, this is just for fun and LL bragging rights. Anyone on here just to get a rise out of others will be removed, no questions asked.

If you were in last year, you don't need an invite to join this year. You are automatically carried over into this year.

I will post brackets when they're available.

Good Luck!

Congrats brews!!! You jumped out front early, and were in it the whole time.

1st time in the pool for me, and I took 7th. Pretty happy with that given I had MSU winning it all!!

Looking through, it's interesting I don't see anyone who picked Nova?

I'll be back next year.

Well someone needs to congratulate the winner for chrissakes. I guess it will be me. I ended up dead last.

Congratulations Brews4995! Even though you made a lousy pick for champion your other picks pulled it out for you. PSNF was a very close second place.

After the first weekend I"M in first place!!! I have never been in this position ever in a pool. I know it will come to an end if Maryland loses to Kansas though. Wanted to stay away from the 3 popular picks of Mich. State, Kansas and North Car. to win it all.

This is maybe the best opening weekend of the tournament I can remember because of all the upsets. But if you actually look at the lower seeded teams winning, a lot of the so called "experts" picked a lot of them because of the experience of those teams from past years in the tournament(like Witchita State, Northern Iowa, Gonzaga, and some of the other usual suspects from the mid majors.

Well good luck the rest of the way cause I know I will get it now when I end up at the bottom like usually happens.
