I thought because Lothar started the ESPN bracket I wouldn't do my Yahoo pick 'em this year but I figured why not. Just like the last 3 years I will give the winner an certified autograph of the Zag of their choice. Either Dickau, Stepp, Santangelo, Turiaf, Morrison, Heytvelt or Downs.

But mostly, YOU MIGHT WIN A MILLION BUCKS if you have the top bracket!!!

It is a private bracket group meant for this boards members only. So if you you participated in the past, I sent you an invitation today to your old yahoo account with the same ID, "GUBoards" #94638 and the same password from the previous years. If you are new then just PM me and I will send you the password.

I want one of us to win the million, so take it seriously. But regardless, a really cool genuine Gonzaga autograph will go to the winner from our favorite message board, GUBoards.

If you have close family members that you trust as true Zag fans then invite them too if you want and I will trust that you give the password to true Zag fans who will appreciate my Gonzaga memorabilia prize.

Enter different brackets too. Join other public groups and you increase the chance you will win a million bucks, so make sure every one of your brackets is different.

I was waiting for this.

After years of near misses will Lothar finally win it all? Probably not, but regardless...

Let's do this!

Just let me know and I will try and answer before the time limit is up. Brackets must be filled out before the tip off of the first game on the 18th, not the play in game.

Plus, I have found that once you have a yahoo account. You can join as many public groups as you want, and if you make sure you choose to take part in the promotional contest, each bracket is one entry. So make every bracket different. That will increase your chances to win the MILLION.

The log in @ yahoo asks for the group ID number. I tried last year's ID and then the password, but it wouldn't log me in. . .

to minimize clutter, I'll add this here:

ESPN COLLEGE HOOPS PICK'EM

Similar to the Championship week game, Lothar has set up a group for GUB members to join. Here's the ESPN invite with the link and password:


New to the ESPN suite of Tournament games this year is College Hoops Pick 'em. The game challenges you to predict the winner of each tournament game as the tournament progresses. The entrant with the most points at the end of the tournament wins a $25,000 Sears gift card. Free to play, sign up now!

Get in the action now:
http://games.espn.go.com/chpickem/en/group?groupID=3713

Group: GUB Zags
Password: ZagsZagsZags

Unlike the bracket game, you'll have to come back to the site to make picks as match-ups for the each new round are set. Tuesday's game is not included. All picks must be made prior to each tip.


Once again, join & see if you can beat Lothar's Pathetic Picks!

So, I tried joining using the # and PW that AKZag sent me in a PM but I tried about a dozen times with no luck. Anyone have any ideas?

You need to get set up with a basic yahoo account first.

Tried another browser and it worked. Apparently Yahoo! doesn't like safari.

Compared to the odds on winning this contest, PowerBall looks like a safe investment for my retirement account.
