View Full Version : Bracket contest question

03-13-2011, 02:58 PM
Okay, I run the bracket contest at work. We don't have the most die hard sports people, but get a pretty good group to participate. Any suggestions about how to handle those first round games? I don't know that we will get people to turn them in within one day, but those teams could move on (unlike the 64/65 game the past couple of years).

Anyone have some creative ideas?

Go Zags!

Take a look at the CBS Sportline & ESPN U bracket management software programs; I can't tell if they are going to award any points at all for those "play in" first round games. . .

ESPN is 'giving' you the games... so you only worry about Thursday on. I imagine CBS is doing the same.

CBS starts with the second round. For example, right now you pick Ohio State or "first round game winner".
