    Not really any different, other than taking a bit longer.

    Most tournaments have around 128 options. It doesn't really matter how long it takes as longs as the host updates it regularly

    Now that I'm done with exams, papers et al. I should get the bracket together soon. Probably not tonight or tomorrow, though, since I'm probably going to bed before much longer (no sleep last night) and then tomorrow is my travel day. Shouldn't be long after that, though.

    The father (revolutionary tight end for the chargers in the 80s) or the son (played for Miami Hurricanes, unsure of his pro career)

    I'd also like to nominate Mark Bavaro.

    Slowed courtesy of an absolutely insane weekend and Monday, and various other things that have resulted in my having extremely little opportunity to be on my computer. But I should have it ready soon, probably designed to include everybody, thus having a round of voting prior to the main first round (kind of like the old Opening Round then First Round of the NIT for anybody that remembers it).

    Before we start, which Mike Haynes was intended to be nominated (by DRHJ9)? Given that there are 3 people who have played in the NFL by that name, a DE, a WR, and a CB. Bracket will be up shortly.

    the cornerback.


    Gotta be that one, just because he played with the Raiders and DRHJ9 is a Raiders fan. :p

    Good, since thats also the one with the most complete wiki article :p

    EDIT: Bracket is now ready, but as I'm heading out (to a basketball game) I'll post it when I get back, early this evening. It'll be in its own thread.
