I still have some work to do on the site(I'm actually tired of the design and I'm going to try change it for next year) but will be ready to go on Sunday night. The pool will be the same format. The web address is http://murphysmarchmadness.net. Note .com will not work this year. And like last year I have 2 options for payments on the web site. 1st is Amazon Payments and can be reached at: https://payments.amazon.com/home  and send the money to dcinct@gmail.com. or you can send me a check.
 
Also like last year I will take PayPal payments from members here. You can also send to dcinct@gmail.com. Just make sure to click thee money is for family/friends.
 
The entry fee is $10

Thanks Dan - I always look forward to this thread and hope to one year improve on a top 50 finish.  A check will be in the mail today for a few entries.

Going to be a large number of teams picked to win it all this year. Should be fun.

Dumb question. If I have made picks but didn't print them out, is there any way to see those picks on the Website before the tourney starts?

Thanks a ton, Dan. Is the deadline today before the play-in games? Or is it before Thursday noon as in previous years? I assume the latter, since the picking options don't appear to account for different winners tonight and tomorrow.

Deadline is noon on Thursday. The play in games(I refuse to call them the 1st round) don't count.

If we pay for each set of brackets separately, can we have a few? or is it just one per?

My two year old has randomly picked a very competitive bracket.  She seemed to go with all of the orange teams, follwed closely by purple and blue.  Just know that she will be celebrating by making it rain with Chuck-E Cheese tokens upon collection of her winnings.

Dan, going to mail a check.  Not sure if wife will get it in the mail tomorrow or Thursday though, as she's the one that handles the books, so I wanted to give you a head's up.  Just put in my bracket.  Thanks as always for running it again.

This year I had 43 entries compared to 62 last year. But I am seeing some new names.
 
I plan to do this again, I just have not had the motivation to do a bracket. I think Syracuse's nosedive has crushed my NCAA hoops spirit....but will do one today.

Your two year old has good taste.

I think you just jinxed 'Cuse haters and they're going to have to watch Cooney rain 3's and the 'Cuse dance into the Final Four.

Got to the end of the bracket and the site froze on me.  Will try again, but wanted to let you know.
 
Edit:  Got it done.  Payment coming.

Think I'll jump in this year for the first time. Always browse this thread and end up wishing I had done one just for fun (and $10 but what the hell).
 
In and sent via PayPal. Thanks for running this and congrats to the eventual recipient of my money.
