Over the past few weeks, we have had about 13 “regulars” picking games on a daily basis.  With that in mind, I wanted to come up with a fair way for all of us to compete for the National Championship.  Like last year, I want to reward the top regular season players with a postseason advantage.  With that in mind:

GeoMapster has earned an AUTOMATIC bid and the #1 overall seed by convincingly finishing in first place (with and without bonus points).
BoilerBadger has also earned an AUTOMATIC bid and the #2 overall seed by finishing with the best overall pick percentage.  It is no coincidence that he finished in second place with and without bonus points.
s0merand0mdude, although he finished in sixth place, will also get an AUTOMATIC bid and the #3 overall seed by finishing with the second best overall pick percentage.

Daily Picks: 02/28 - 03/01... BIT Play-In Round

Just need a couple more teams guys!

NCAA Tournament Fantasy League for all you hard core guys who like to compete.  

My league is real simple we are just drafting players for pts only.

I'm trying to get 10-15 teams with 10-15 players.

The draft will commence after the selection slow and go until the final 64 starts not the play in games.  You can draft a play in game player but if his team don't make it you get no pts for the tourney.  I'm thinking if you want to draft a guy from one of those games and his team losses you can switch him out with a player not drafted.

So Beer, are all of the play-in games combined going to decide who makes it to the next round?

Yes - The results all the way through Thursday will determine who advances.  I'm still considering options based on the fact that we have 12 players now.  There will be 9 players remaining in the National Championship Bracket after this round.  However, I may throw some curves in there.  I expect to make be an announcement tomorrow or Thursday... stay tuned!!!
