2012-13 College Hoops Pool

Unread postby swerb » Tue Oct 09, 2012 7:36 am

Had fun with this one last year, so we'll make this an annual event.

Very simple.

$100 to play, but it gets you an entire college basketball season worth of excitement. We'll have a five round draft (draft order will be set randomly and snake) of all Div I college basketball teams.

Most TOTAL regular season wins for your five team portfolio wins the pool. First tiebreaker will be lowest total aggregate seeds in the NCAA Tourney. So if you have two 1 seeds, a 3 seed, and two five seeds - your total would be 15. Teams that do not make the tourney (unlikely any in a tiebreak scenario would have a non-tourney team) would get a total of 17 for tiebreak purposes.

Here's a link to last year's pool: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=21107

It came down to the Saturday night before Selection Sunday Big East Championship game, with me edging Dano when Louisville knocked off Cincinnati. Contending portfolios:

Swerb 2 131

Syracuse Orangemen 31
Louisville Cardinals 26
Creighton Blue Jays 28
Cleveland State Vikings 22
UNC Asheville Bulldogs 24

Dano 129

Baylor Bears 27
St. Marys Gaels 27
Bucknell Bison 24
Oral Roberts Golden Eagles 27
Cincinnati Bearcats 24
