    For the purposes of these brackets, I chose to rule members ineligible if they had not visited the site since October of 2017, or the beginning of the season. Using the "last visit" from the members list ; 10/31/17, yer out, 11/01/17 yer in.
    The tricky part is that - at least for me - if somebody is currently online, their last visit is shown as N/A, as is the case for Rubb.
    As a mod, I imagine you have much more info. I'm just using what is available to me. If you say he hasn't visited since 2016, then I'll take him out.

    Also, I think a "closing time" cutoff will be implemented ... So, somebody has to post at some point between Nov. 1 of the current season, and the Saturday before Selection Sunday.

    Did anyone else know that Reno is the only person ever to have won two national championships at both North Carolina and Duke?

    That's pretty typical of guys from Reno. They're all connected is all I've got to say.

    If I'm the top "4 seed" - then I have a chance, a chance at being GU this year ...and I'd have to just go on some huge post pad, either that or eviscerate the foo for 3 days, like the OCC, to get my seed down, so I don't do that to the team.

    Besides, I'm more than happy having Izzo coach my team. It could be the NCAA hockey championships, the Frozen Four, and I'd want Izzo coaching my team.

    El Voce is always GU. . .Foo tradition and tribute to a wonderful guy and terrific member of the GUB and predecessor forums. He really was "The Voice of Reason."

    Very nice. I like that a lot. I wish I could've met him.

    I had not picked that up in years past. Good stuff.

    I'll bet you feel even worse, having won last year, don't you?

    The office pool$ I won by picking my designated team in the Foo bracket more than made up for it. . .

    You seem to have a pretty good tradition to follow on those pools.

    In the years that I was doing big pools, (for small money), I was always the guy almost winning.

    A clarification on my earlier post regarding eligibility ... we are after all, a message board - mostly here because of our rooting interest for the Zags. Seeds are determined by total number of posts. But activity is also a factor, which also adds a wrinkle to the same old same seedings. So those that we ( I ) determine to have not visited the board since the beginning of the current basketball season ( I'm using 11/01/17 ) are considered ineligible. Posting is not a requirement for inclusion in the field as a lack of posting only affects one's own seeding.

    That being said, even the most pedestrian of Members will probably drop by for a visit on Selection Sunday. So I will be capping "eligibility" the day before - that is to say, if a Member hasn't stopped by during the current season through this Saturday, they are ineligible. Yet, we all know some conferences still play their conference tournament title tilts on Sunday so I will still be counting posts made up to the Selection Show for SEEDING purposes. So if member ABC drops by for the first time for the season on Saturday, they are eligible, but they would be ineligible if they wait until Selection Sunday for their initial 2017-2018 visit. If an active member continues to post throughout the weekend, their seed will be determined by their post count just prior to the Selection Show.

    It's called March Madness for a reason. Those of us that are old enough to remember my old "Risk" Brackets might remember that the mathematic favorite did not always win and I always felt that in some way that was more representative of the true nature of the tourney - anything could happen.

    It seems like a lot of legalese for a stupid little bit of entertainment, but I have literally spent hours over the years trying to fine tune the Brackets and remain consistent and transparent through the process. Thank you for your patience.

    No worries. Foo folks don’t argue with the Selection Committee if he’s one of our own.

    Going to make a small push to improve my seed. Just in case the zags are a 4 seed or better. I don't want to drop to a 5 seed. So watch out Jazz, AK and Kitz I am coming for you.
    You can't make a half sandwich. If it's not half of a whole sandwich, it's just a small sandwich.
