3/14/11 - 3rd Annual Little Rock Office March Madness Challenge

If you are looking for the Walker March Madness Pool, please follow and bookmark this link.

Welcome to the 3rd Annual Little Rock Office March Madness Challenge (LROMMC) 2011. The rules are simple and are included below. Since everyone is here in the office, it should be pretty easy to collect the brackets. I'll take a walk around the office on Monday to pass out brackets, another pass on Wednesday afternoon to collect brackets and a final walk on Thursday morning just before the first game to pick up the stragglers.

Daily updates (daily as in game day) will be made on this website with the most up to date scores. I will not longer be doing daily emails, you'll just have to check back here to see who's winning (or how bad your are doing).

  1. A completed bracket should contain the following information:
    • A prediction for all 63 games of the tournament
    • The play-in games do not count for points. If you have a play-in game winner, winning a game in the tournament, you will have to pick the team however. For example, if you think West Virginia will lose their first round game, you will have to pick UAB or Clemson.
    • The entrants name, work extension, and tiebreak point prediction (see below). The contact information is only used for payouts.
  2. Points will be awarded for winning picks as follows:
    • By picking the winner of a 1st round game, 1 point is awarded.
    • By picking the winner of a 2nd round game (correctly placing a team in the Sweet 16), 2 points are awarded.
    • By picking the winner of a Sweet 16 game (correctly placing a team in the Elite 8), 3 points are awarded.
    • By picking the winner of an Elite 8 game (correctly placing a team in the Final Four), 4 points are awarded.
    • By picking the winner of a Final Four game (correctly placing a team in the Championship game), 5 points are awarded.
    • By picking the winner of the Championship game (correctly predicting the NCAA National Champion), 6 points are awarded.
  3. Tie Breaker
    • In the case of a tie at the end of the tournament, a tiebreak will be determined by the entry correclty guessing the TOTAL number of points scored by both teams in the Championship game.
    • If a tiebreaker is not provided at the time of bracket submission, a default tie breaker of 0 will be used.
    • The winning entry with the closest prediction to the actual total (whether going over or not) will be given the win. If both entries are equally close, the individual who chose lower than the actual total will be awarded the win.
    • In the case that none of the "Winners" submit a tiebreak prediction (or if the predictions are the same), the entrant with the most correct picks in the first round will be given the win.
    • If still tied, the 2nd round will be used, followed by the third round, etc.
    • If still no winner has been determined, by the championship game, the entrants will share the title or position.
