    The winner of the bracket pool will receive a free ButlerHoops.com t-shirt. You can see the shirt here. I'll also take this time to remind everyone that you can also use your forum points to purchase that t-shirt here. If you don't have any points you can also purchase them for $15. If you are short a few points you can also buy points here.

    Apparently on CBS you don't name the brackets. So I took out the part about using your username on your bracket. Don't worry about that. This is my 1st time using CBS for brackets. I abandoned ESPN for everything when they updated their website. I was always hesitant to move away from them despite inferior content because I was familiar with their site and had developed habits around it. When they updated the layout I took that time to switch to CBS.

    It's the same story for me every year. I tend to do very well the first week, but have a terrible track record beyond that. 34/40 games picked correctly but half of my final 4 is gone.

    Hmm, I'm thinking I'll just go ahead and give it to 2nd place, unless anybody has any ideas for a follow up contest. I can't think of anything until next season starts.

    We could bet on the NBA Playoffs (although that seems a little obv), NHL Playoffs, Indy 500 (100th running...), or Champions League (personal fave after the 500)?

    Or a combo of them all?

    Jared, how about some kind of an Indy 500 pool, just to break the monotony? Like, picking the top three or the top five (in order or not) and the winner. Pretty hard to do a "draw" pool on-line. Just an idea. You can get creative with it. NBA? Baseball? Kind of surprised we didn't have more participants in the NCAA pool, since we have so many experts on here.

    Thanks PSU. After meeting you at the BE tourney I finally realized that you really are a BIIIIG fan of the Dawgs. I really dig the Graves jersey especially with the mid rift look. Have you considered modeling? Was also interesting to hear about your wrestling experience at Yorkville High School. Keep up the great posts. They are very insightful.
