SCORING IS AS FOLLOWS:

Weight - Weight is the number of points received for a win in each round.

Add Seed - The seed of the winning team is added to the correct pick total.
Example - If the 12th seed wins and your weight is 1, then 13 points will be credited for the Win.  Utilizing the Add Seed in the first round penalizes those that just pick the favorites…

JOIN THE FUN!!!!

For those who participate….please, send to me, Jim Kelly jandckelly1@cox.net your e-mail address so we can communicate off the CBSSports.com message board…..

When everyone has filled in their brackets I will send an e-mail and get the chatter started…it has already started as Busby and Reynolds are in rare-form and we are a week away.

If there are any issues with logging into CBSSports.com call someone younger than you and they will walk you through it….If that doesn't work, give me a “shout.”  If we can't figure it out....just JOIN in on the chatter.

Good Luck to all…... I look forward to seeing all of you at the 2014 Flagstaff-Sigma Chi-Alumni-July-Golf-Reunion-Weekend, July 18 & 19, 2014 http://www.nausig.com/flagstaff-july-golf-reunion-weekend
