Inside Carolina's Bracket Challenge is an online game where you will pit your guessing abilities against thousands of fellow Tar Heels and college basketball fans. Entries are being taken now and sign-ups will end March 18, 2004. NCAA tournament games begin on the 18th and will conclude with the National Championship game on April 5, 2004.
Fantasy Sports Man Inc has games in college and pro football, college and pro Basketball, and professional golf. Next year they will be adding Major League Baseball among other sports.
Please note that your Inside Carolina login and password don't apply to this challenge and you will have to sign up before playing.
When you sign-up, join the public InsideCarolina.com group and compete against fellow IC readers. If you refer friends / co-workers, an email will be sent to them giving them the name of the group, and the password (if the group is private).
Making picks is very easy. As you know, the tournament has four regions with 16 teams each (this game does not include the play-in game scheduled for March 16, 2004 giving you two extra days to finalize their picks). After you have signed up, you may simply fill out your bracket.
You get points by guessing the correct winner of the games. The points for each game in each round range from 10 pts per correct guess in the first round of 64 to 160 pts for the correct guess of the championship game.
DON'T WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE BEFORE MAKING YOUR PICKS.
