    A liitle contest for the post season for NBN. Here is how it will work:
    • You pick the 68 teams you think will be in the tournament bracket;
    • You also predict who the 4 #1, #2, #3, and #4 seeds will be (you don't have to pick the region);
    • Finally you predict who will be the #1 overall seed. Tiebreaker
    • You have to turn your predictions in via pm to either @OklahomaGator, @hallgator, @tilly BEFORE the tip off of the SEC tournament first game.
    You receive one point for each team you successfully predict will make the field of 68 and you get one point for picking the correct seed for the top 4 seeds in each region.
    Example: if you picked Tennessee and have them as a #2 seed and they are seeded as a #1 seed, you only get 1 point. If you picked them correcty as a #1 seed you would get 2 points.

    After the contest is closed we will copy all picks into a contest thread so everyone can see them. This is just for fun but the winner will get a banner that goes under their avatar that says "NBN Bracket Master" for one year.
    Start putting your list of teams together now but you have a month to get ready.

    Awesome idea!

    But you may want to make the entry date a bit earlier. . . as some of the conference tourneys kick off several days prior to the SECt.

    Good point, but doing that might skew the contest toward who can best pick the tournament winners from crappy conferences instead of who can correctly pick the bubble teams and the high seeding.

    I thought about making it the day after the last regular season game but went midweek to split the difference between that day and selection Sunday.

    I won't be participating. My bracket might tip my hand for my money pool and I don't know who is watching.

    We won't post them until after the tournament starts. You can submit them to us by PM. I'm not in your money pool, so you can send it to me.

    I might do it, but I am not all that concerned about these things. I am more concerned about what happens after the brackets are set. There is real $'s there.

    Top right corner of the screen is an icon that looks like an envelope. Click on that and when it opens, click on Start A New Conversation. Then put in the name(s) of those you want to receive it in the participants part of the header. Paste your reply in the body along with a title of some kind and then click on Start a Conversation at the bottom of the reply area.

    If it's easier you can just send it to one of us and we'll include the other two after we receive it.

    No “@“ preceding the recipient’s name either? Not like tagging a member in a post. Right?
