    March Madness is upon us! The brackets are about to be set for this year's NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. And The Arena is going to have another bracket challenge ... and you can win colors and VIPship for a week!

    Rather than having someone track all submitted brackets and leaving room for human error, we'll be using Yahoo.com to host a group for us. To participate, you'll need to not only sign-up in this thread, but you'll also need to sign up at yahoo for the group.

    The winner of this challenge will be the user declared the winner of the Yahoo group. That user will enjoy one week of VIPship and custom colors.

    The information you need at Yahoo Sports:

    Group name: The Arena Bracket Challenge
    Group ID#: 96777
    Group Password: jcarena

    http://tournament.fantasysports.yahoo.com/t1/group/96777

    To sign up here, please include the following on the sign-up list: Your JC ID, your yahoo username (that you use for this game), your pick set name. Please keep in mind that the TOS will still apply to things posted at the yahoo group.

    Let's sign up ... add your information, and add as many spots as we need.

    Also as the "first round" (aka play-in) games are not included, the deadline for entry is before the first game on Thursday.

    reche, ESPN's also doing it without the play-in games.

    I think the reasoning is to give everyone a chance to enter their brackets, and less than 2 days is pretty rushed for a lot of people.

    My dad disagrees. He made us pick the play in games as well for the family pool.

    For small groups of people, that's easier to do. But for large online groups, the extra time is probably pretty significant.

    So 12 of us picked 1 seeds, then 1 2 seed, a 5 seed, a 6 seed, a couple 7 seeds, and a 9 seed. Interesting.

    EDIT: also, it looks like we have 3 more brackets than people signed up in here. Remember, if you want colors, you need to sign up in here so we know who you are!

    Well, there's 4 of us thus far, so this is a crowded first place.

    I'm counting on winning via the same method I did last year: the only person to pick Duke to win it all :p
