My email address for the NCAA Contest is
(Note: Your email address will not be used for any other purpose, and in our updates we will truncate your address for security.)

I am entering the following contest with this entry (Choose one or both; you can come back and enter the other contest after completing the first one, or select "Both Contests" to enter this bracket for both contests):

Regular Points Contest
Seeded Points Contest
Use this entry for Both Contests

(Select "Both Contests" and we will use this entry for both the Regular and the Seeded Points Contests)


Regular Points Contest =1-2-3-5-7-10 points per round.
Seeded Points contest gets you the points based on that team's seeds, times a round multiplier, as explained below.

After entering your selections below, come back and press the "Send My NCAA Selections" button below.

After pressing the "SEND MY NCAA SELECTIONS" button, if you see a message that "Required data is missing," it is because you failed to input your emailaddress or one or more games. Please review your selections to make certain that you picked a winner for EVERY game.

NCAA TOURNAMENT CONTEST RULES & DIRECTIONS:

1. There is no fee to enter. There is no prize.

2. Scroll down to each of the four regions and click on a winner for each game. When you click on your selection, your choice turns BLACK or BLUE. On some browsers, a "default selection" will already appear in BLUE. You MUST change this default or the highlighted selection will be registered for you.

3. After selecting winners in the 15 games in each of the 4 regions, go to the bottom of the screen and click on your choice for the two national semi-final games and the national championship. The Tuesday night "Play-In Game" will be a "field" selection. If you choose the #16 play-in winner in any game, you are taking either team.

4. Click on the SEND MY NCAA SELECTIONS button above when you have selected winners in each of the regional set of games, and the three Final Four games at the bottom.

5. Entries must be sent by tip-off on Thursday (around noon). You can make changes anytime up to tip-off on Thursday. Your latest entry will count. You may send multiple entries.

6. If you fail to make an entry in a particular game, The Sports Bar will fill in your entry based on logic, or flip a coin, if logic is not obvious. For example, you picked Cornell to win the tournament, but you left out a winner for Cornell's first round game. We will assume you wanted to pick Cornell to win the first round. If that logic does not obviously work, The Sports Bar will flip a coin and fill in your selection. Please check your own selections to be certain that you filled in a winner for each and every game!

7. You can enter more than once, just use a different email address for each entry, or give me a fake email name. But use a different name. Your "real" email adddress will receive the daily updates.

8. You agree to receive email updates from me during the tournament, and other tournament-related reminders as needed. I will not spam nor sell the list, nor use your email name for any other reason. I will only use it to send you contest results.

POINTS:
Your points will be based upon the REGULAR rules unless you tell me otherwise. You may send an entry for each points method for each email address. But use a different email name (or a fake name) if you want to enter more than once in each points system. Your "real" email adddress will receive the daily updates.
Regular Points Contest (1-2-3-5-7-10)

1 point for each win in the first round
2 points for 2nd round (each Sweet Sixteen team you pick)
3 points for 3rd round
5 points for 4th round (for each Final Four team)
7 points for 5th round (the two Saturday Final Four games)
10 points for 6th round (National Champion)
Seeded Points Contest

1 point if your selection is the #1 seed and they win.
2 points if your selection is the #2 seed and they win.
3 points if your selection is the #3 seed and they win.
......etc....
16 points if your selection is the #16 seed and they win.

Officially, I will multiply the Seeded Points each round. Round 2 is worth 2x the points, Round 3 is worth 4x, Round 4 is 8x, Round 5 is 16x, Round 6 is 32x.
