    Just a clarification -

    To sign up for a CBS Sportsline membership, go to [link=http://cbs.sportsline.com]cbs.sportsline.com[/link] to register with the site, where you will come up with your own username and password. Once you have registered with the site, then go to the link in the first post in this thread to get to our Bracket Manager site. As long as you're signed into the Sportsline site, all you should have to do is enter the group password "indian" and then you'll be signed up.

    Yeah, I love filling out the brackets every year. They're always tough. So many upsets but you never know who it will be or when. Hey, is that Phillip Williams from channel 9 in there with us??

    Yep, that's him. We always do stuff like this all the time. He's a sucker for brackets, Super Bowl pools, all sorts of things like that. We play together in a fantasy football league on CBS Sportsline.

    The brackets are now posted and picking can begin! As expected, the ACC is heavily represented, so come and join the bracketology fun! We're up to nine players now and I'm expecting several others to join now that the brackets are up!

    Last full day to join and make your picks! We're up to 13 players now. The later you wait, the more difficult it may be to access the site as more and more people log on to Sportsline.com to finalize their picks.

    It's not going too well KG. Our brackets leave a lot to be desired. At least your choice for champ is still alive, though I can't believe you picked Dook. :p

    Hehe. Well, I filled out 3 different brackets this year and they're all busted up now. I did this one on CBS Sportsline, another on Yahoo and another on ESPN's website. After the 2nd round they are all screwed up now thanks to Kentucky and Stanford losing to a couple of Alabama teams. I forgot I had picked Duke for this one though so I guess I'm still alive. Hehehe. But I had Kentucky and Stanford in the championship game on my ESPN brackets. I also had St. Joe's losing in the 2nd round and now they're in the sweet 16. Not to mention my Carolina team losing to Texas. Boohoo! :(

    Yeah, it was pretty depressing when UNC lost. I was across the street watching it with my neighbor who is also a huge UNC fan. After the game, the guys in the neighborhood got together and we played No Limit Texas Hold 'Em all night and I busted everybody, so that cushioned the blow a little. :p

    Boy, I'd love to see Duke vs Georgia Tech in the championship. They got their work cut out for them though. :)

    I'd love to see Georgia Tech there. I'll reserve judgment on that "other team" that plays in the ACC, even though they're just a bunch of Ivy league wannabes who had to settle for that school in Durham.
