*** 2016 SportsHawaii.com Pick'em Challenge! (Submissions due Thursday) ***

#1 Post by ubercow » Sat Mar 12, 2016 11:11 pm

Since the men's team made it to the dance (NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament) this year, were going to host the 2016 SportsHawaii.com Pick'em Challenge. Finish with the most points and win a Manti Teo Autographed football that was purchased from Murphy's Pig Skin Pig out. In case of tie, yahoo's tiebreaker rules will determine the winner.

Using fibonacci scoring so getting more correct in the early rounds helps more vs just getting the final two teams correct. Good Luck!

yes, this cow is currently past well done, and headed to the burnt category.

looks like it's a two horse race now. If the sooners do better, fulingyu wins, if the tarheels do better, then blake wins.

its the opposite i think. He needs UNC to win (or OU to lose in the final four) and I need OU to win both games to win.

Should be a fun one. This was a weird bracket this year.

Sucks that OU lost... But OMG, does that mean I win? Not trying to rub it in or anything, just don't win things like this often. Last time I won a bracket pool was in the late 90's... Lol.
