My school is irrelevant and everyone else is going on probation but the pool must go on. Same as the last few years. $20 entry fee. Same payment methods and added Apple Pay. And once again on the site it says no PayPal but feel free to to use it. Send payments to dcinct@gmail.com.

The one change is the site is now at murphysmarchmadness.com as opposed to .net. Any questions let me know.

How we looking? I have NO idea who to pick this year. Might see more potential champs picked this year than any other.

Soooooo....with today’s injury news is it possible for you to just delete my 2 brackets and I’ll make new ones? Can we do that?

I’ve been shoveling all day. What injury news? And we can that if you’d like.
UVA lost De’Andre Hunter, which is a pretty big blow.

Yeah, I’d like that. I’ll redo them tonight.

EDIT: And I'll wait until I hear something from you before entering new ones.

I entered new ones and put in the comment that I was replacing those old ones.

May decide to throw in 1 more tomorrow....

Dan,
Are we able to make changes prior to Noon tomorrow? I attempted to do that and hope I didn't delete my entire (winning) bracket.

Once you enter them you aren’t able to delete or change your entry. If you would like to make changes you can email or send me a message through here and I can make the changes.

I always forget to print out picks so I forget who I'm pulling for in some of these early games until the brackets are viewable.

Regarding printing - over the past 10+ years (I think it has been that long I have been donating) I have never figured out how to print a regular looking bracket...it is always a page and a half. I am not missing anything right?

Also Dan - sent you a check today for 3 entries.

Once I get it up you can go to players picks and printout in the nice bracket format. Unofficially 290 entries. Give me about 20 minutes.

So, I got a 1 in 80 shot with the Nova pick if they win and a 1 in 11 shot with the Michigan pick if they win.

Almost did a UNC bracket this morning---damn.

I went 14-2 but lost Zona. That being said, I only had them making the sweet 16 while I know MANY who had them in the 8, 4, or even winning the whole damn thing

Same as Tims4wins on my Nova bracket. I switched this after the guy from UVA got hurt. Sooooo, my Nova bracket is likely toast.

My Michigan one also went 13-3, and I only had Zona winning two games, so if Buffalo can beat UK tomorrow I'll be okay there.

I always try to aim for keeping my Elite 8 intact or only losing one and keeping the Final Four intact after the first round, then all Final Four teams after the second day, and so on. I feel like it's useless to worry about teams you have going one or two and done unless you have one of the bigger teams winning, which I don't. The 300 people in the bracket complicates it a bit but it helps keep me sane.
