"I told you Kent State would make the Sweet 16!" "I was down with Valpo in 99!" "I knew Hampton was gonna beat Iowa State!"
Now you can prove to the rest of the Wieners out there how clairvoyant, lucky, or just damn smart you are when it comes to the NCAA Tournament!
How To Play
Round 1: Pick one game from each site that will have a higher seed (9-16) beating a lower seed (1-8). That's 4 games Thursday, 4 games Friday. For each upset you pick correctly, you'll get 1 point for each number different between the seeds. So, if you pick a 10 to beat a 7, you'll get 3 points.
Round 2: Pick two games each day. The games must be from different sites. For each upset you pick correctly, you'll get 2 points times the difference between the seeds. If a 7 knocks off a 2, and you pick it, you get 10 points.
Sweet 16: Pick one game each day for an upset. You score 4 points times the difference between the seeds.
Elite 8: Pick one of the 4 games to have an upset and get 8 times the seed difference if you're right.
Final Four: Pick one team to win it all. The higher the seed, the more points you'll get for getting it right.

What You'll Get For Winning
I might throw some dough to the winner, like $20 or somethin. Participate and you never know...
Here's a blog link, which attributes to Vitale. He's good for it. I think Kevin O'Neill would be willing to leave the Grizzles. (Isn't everyone?) That whole successor->interim->fired sequence makes even less sense now. Edit:
