Hello all. I've been around the blog for a while now and always notice that we have a strong college basketball following. I'm a HUGE hoops fan and I always enter a bracket with a bunch of my buddies and co-workers (I took 1st place in '09 and 3rd in '08 so watch out!). I thought it would be fun to have a March Madness bracket with my fellow TC members. And if for some reason you're a non-Braves fan just roaming the blog, feel free to join as well.
It's free to join the league and all you have to do is have/create an account with CBS Sports (which is free as well). I did an extra one just to see and it took me less than 3 minutes to create. So you have no excuse not to join!
Here is all the information you'll need:

And like I said above, all you have to do is have a CBS Sports account. Simple, right? I'm using CBSSports because I used it last year and thought it was really easy to navigate. It also has up to the minute scoring which is nice as well.
Once the tournament is over, I'll post the results.
The scoring system, which can be seen on the league page as well, is really simple (1pt for correct 1st round pick, 2pts for correct 2nd round pick, 4pts for correct 3rd round pick, 8pts for correct 4th round pick, and so on.)
Everyone is allowed one bracket entry and I'm pretty sure all picks are due by a few minutes before the first games on Thursday.
If you have any problems/questions/concerns, feel free to bring them up.
Oh, and I know it warrants a hanging if you ask for your own Fanpost to be rec'd, but we should all rec this to keep it at the top. It'll help get as many participants as possible.
And like always, go Braves and go Zona Wildcats.
