    Default Fictional Tournament

    Ok, selection Sunday is tomorrow. We will know who is in and who just missed the cut.
    Sunday night will be the 4 play in games.
    Monday will be have 64 teams in action. Scores will be posted.
    Tuesday is round of 32.
    Wed: S16
    Thurs: E8
    Fri: FF
    Sat National Championship

    After posting scores I can do a small script for each game.
    Emphasis on longer scripts for close games and upsets. Even fictional post game comments.
    I do this kind of stuff for simulations.
    I can either do my own scores or let a random generator do it. I just write the mini articles.

    Please give some feedback.
    This is just a fantasy world to fill in the void.
    It will be fun.

    If there is no real selection show. I will use Lunardi Bracketology. If you prefer I can use Jerry Palms.

    Sorry, Jack,

    Like the concept but I think everyone here is just too bummed to get behind it. Our worst nightmares have popped us awake, anxious & sweating: OMG. It's real!

    Ok I vote to do it. Why not? I don't have anything to do now; and it would be interesting to see what you come up with. I also vote to NOT use Joe Lunardi's. Joe's always been good at predicting who will be in the tournament but so good at placing them and their match-ups. I would like to suggest to use Kenpom's. I believe this is the best ranking system. Just an idea. If not that then the NET.

    Go for it.

    Go Zags!!!

    Do it please. We all have no real sports to follow now. As long as we don"t have to try to predict game scores. This year was tough on that front.

    This was by far my worst year predicting game scores. I had a few lucky ones, but overall I really sucked. hahaha

    That's pretty funny. I'm in my sixties and retired. It's either sports or astronomy for fun.

    I can understand that, but you'll do a good job YukonJack because you're a Zag.
