Bragging rights are better than money?

No love for the defending champ?

You need to register a CBS Sportsline username and password OD. Then you hit the link provided, sign in with that username and password, then input the bracket password (march) to make your picks.

Sounds harder and more complex than it is.

Yeah. Thanks Peek. I just figured that out by looking at my information from last year that I had saved in an email folder. I came back in here to edit my post.

I have to admit, the committee did a decent job seeding these teams. There were some lower seed teams I liked, but not against the team they were matched up against. Texas sure got a tough draw for a team that was once ranked #1 in the nation. Can't wait to plant myself in front of the tube for hours/days at a time.

UTEP-Butler and Temple-Cornell come immediately to mind for me in regard to lower seeds I liked but with difficult first round match ups.

In the contest where normally knowing less is more? I think not, this is the crapshoot of crapshoots.

Thats cool though, I'm still in, but that last thing I'll be doing is bragging if I end up on top.

Geez. A few hours into this thing. What do I know. Nothing! Lower seeds are certainly stepping up.
