I would like to have 3 or 4 places paid but there probably wont be 20. This is the 4th year doing this and last three years having 10 people in 2014, 6 in 2015 and 9 last year.
Updated with link, if it doesn't work either look for the group or I can simply just invite everyone via email.

yeah you're in.
> I don't like how it shows you the bar that represents how everyone else is picking.
> It just facilitates group-think instead of letting everyone make their own picks.
> Is that a setting that can be toggled?
I dont like it either but espn has always had that and it cant go away. I agree it can make your picking a little diminishing if its 25% or less. There will be "upsets" so to speak.
Sadly we are going to have to try and ignore it.
> What paypal should we send entry fee to?
Went ahead and sent offers to everyone.
Lets try to get two more spots!

If Georgia wins me and bats fight for 2nd
If Georgia wins
1st - ClearSights
2nd - TieBreaker #1 smallest total difference Tiebreaker #2 Closest to winning team
Slim - Georgia 31 Alabama 30 TB#1 Total = 61 TB#2 = 31
Bat - Georgia 27 Alabama 24 TB#1 Total = 51 TB#2 = 27
If Alabama wins
1st - Ryan
2nd - ClearSights
STRAIGHT SCORING TIEBREAKERS: In all cases, an entry that does not win a tiebreaker is eliminated from consideration: Tiebreaker #1 - An Entrant's predicted Tiebreaker Game score is compared to the actual Tiebreaker Game score. The differences between the predicted scores and actual scores for each team are added. The entry with the smallest total difference is considered the winning entry. Tiebreaker #2 - The Entrant whose predicted score for the winning team of the Tiebreaker Game is closest to the actual score of the winning team is considered the winning entry.
Since I am the host of this you can pick which tiebreaker you want to do.
Either one you win don't you lol
Fudging Bama, Georgia choked 20 to 7 then this out of fudging no where qb from bama plays like hes been here before.
Ah well... Ryan gets 1st while ClearSights gets 2nd.
Me and Slim so close...
> Either one you win don't you lol
TieBreaker #2 you would of had a better chance but doesnt matter now. Georgia crap the bed.
1st Ryan - $45
2nd ClearSights - $25
Paypal sent! Will most likely be doing March Madness in a couple months.
