    If you fill out more than one then you cannot post on this site over the next two three weeks about how great your pick was in getting a 13 seed into the sweet sixteen. Man law should be one man one bracket, more than that you don't talk about your picks.

    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Re: How many Men's NCAA brackets did you fill out?

    You asking how many pools or how many different brackets? I'm in 4 different pools but used the same bracket for each.

    What's the point of using different picks? Be a man and stand by your picks!

    I like the Man Law idea: He who creates more than one bracket should not be permitted to brag, analyze or talk about their picks with any other male.

    Number of brackets folks, not pools.

    Playing the NCAA dance is like the lottery - the more brackets you fill out the more chances you have to win - and - lose.

    Re: How many Men's NCAA brackets did you fill out?

    I filled out two different brackets in two different pools. One was my picks and the other one was going around the table last night at supper having my 7 yr old pick one game, then the 4 yr old picked, then the 2 yr old picked, and then my wife picked and then back to the 7 yr old all the way till the championship game with Creighton getting beat by Pitt.

    Will make me look real bad if(I mean when) they beat me in points.

    3 brackets in all my pools. So if X is the number of pools I entered, and a,b,c are the three brackets I put together, my total brackets would be: X(a+b+c) :)

    Ya my wife and three daughters must have a secret crush on the Missouri Valley conference because the have Creighton in the finals and Southern IL beating Kansas. And I PROMISE there was no paint and/or gas fumes involved when they were filling out this bracket.

    I filled out a bracket where the winner gets a candy bar:

    no, your total would be 3(X)

    3 brackets was a given, no need to variablize them

    sweet, new word -> "variablize": to make in a variable

    Re: How many Men's NCAA brackets did you fill out?

    I filled out the same bracket for my Yahoo and Facebook pools, but I helped my girlfriend create her Facebook bracket. So is that two or three..? Two and a half?

    EDIT: Apparently I picked my bracket after taking a shot of tequila, because I picked Old Dominion over Butler, Oral Roberts over Wazzu, and Texas Tech over BC. Texas Tech I can understand, but what the hell was I thinking with ORU?

    And not surprisingly, my GF's bracket has only missed one game today. Oy.

    I fell for Oral Roberts too after remembering them beating Kansas earlier this year. Stupid Jayhawks. I think this calls for another manlaw: Man wants woman to do good early so she keeps interest in tournament and man can watch all the games. However, no man wants to lose to woman in tourney pool when all said and done, especially when she picks Louisville and Vanderbilt in the Final Four (looking brilliant after Day 1). Man law



    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.
