Let’s make some picks, argue about them and then have the winner get Venmo’d $10 by me!

Enough of you said on Twitter that you wanted us to run a bracket challenge this year so by God we are going to do one! Here are the official rules which basically are just a bunch of legal mumbo jumbo that say we are doing this bracket and you don’t have to pay to enter and the winner gets $10 from Drew.

Sound good?

Here is the link to the bracket. We will be doing it through Yahoo! and you do need a Yahoo! account to play. The scoring will be done Fibonacci style with bonus points added for early round upsets.

Just so the scoring system is all written out:

Rd of 64: 2 points for correct pick, 4 points for upset bonus
Rd of 32: 3 points for correct pick, 4 points for upset bonus
Rd of 16: 5 points for correct pick, 2 points for upset bonus
Rd of 8: 8 points for correct pick, 1 point for upset bonus
Rd of 4: 13 points for correct pick, 1 point for upset bonus
National final: 21 points for correct pick, 1 point for upset bonus

Again...here is the link to the bracket. Tell your friends! $10 can get you a lot of stuff!
