Annual Six School Shootout Pool

Unread postby waborat » Mon Mar 15, 2010 11:10 am

Been running this one for close to 20 years now...

Gives a little different spin on the tourney, here's the rules:

Pick any six schools. Each school will receive points based on their seeding in the tournament and a pre-determined multiplier for each round won. For example: Assume you pick Notre dame (a #6 seed) and they go all the way. They would accumulate points as follows:

First Round 1 point
Second Round 3 points
Regionals 5 points
Semi-Finals 7 points
Final Four 9 points
Championship 11 points

So Notre Dame would get 6 points in the first round (seed 6 x 1 point), 18 points in the second round (seed 6 x 3 points), 30 points in the regionals (seed 6 x 5 points) and so on for a total of 216 points if they won the championship.

The tie breaker will be who got the most total points from their six schools in the first round, then the second round and so on until a winner is determined.

Picks must be turned in by noon on Thursday.

Cost is $10.00 to enter.

Prize money will be as follows:
First Place 70% of total money in pot
Second Place 30% of total money in pot

PM me your selections...you can paypal me the money and needs to be paid by Thursday night
