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.

There are 8 games in these picks for two conference tourneys (Big South & Horizon).  I am seeing Coastal Carolina and Gardner-Webb and I don't trust with KenPom which it stated "Coastal Carolina with 17 points favor".  No way!! Coastal Carolina lost at home to Gardner-Webb 58-59 and won away at Gardner-Webb 58-55.  These were close games so I put them in at lowest confident point as possible.

Just like last year, everyone should make picks as it will impact seeding.  I will post more details later.

There is the very improbable chance that it will come down to a tiebreaker on total seson points later. So you might as well post something. I need to do this when I'm more awake. If for some reason I can't get on I'll take the consensus pick with the home team tiebreaker, ordered in the same spots as the consensus picks.

I should be on but just in case something comes up.
