This year's Madness comp will be at the same site as last year. A bracket for 2012 has been setup once again at cbssports.com .. for those of us who played last year, you're half-way there, as invite emails have been sent by csbssports.com to all of last year's participants (using last year's email addresses); the email shows your reg'd ID.
    The scoring system remains unchanged. There are 63 games in
    this comp; we pick all of them in one go on the cbssports.com website:

    1st Round (32 games) : 1 pt
    2nd Round (16 games) : 2 pts
    3rd Round ( 8 games) : 3 pts (regional semis ) Sweet Sixteen
    4th Round ( 4 games) : 4 pts (regional finals) Elite Eight
    5th Round ( 2 games) : 6 pts (national semis ) Final Four
    6th Round ( 1 game ) : 9 pts (national final)

    Seedings: additional pts added for each correct pick, being the team's seed.

March Madness at FT
2012 Tipping Comp
  • if you'd like to join the Madness tipping comp but do not have a cbssports ID, there's a link on that page to register. You must have a cbs ID to play in this comp! Please note - you may, but don't have to, use your real name to register (surname, first name); but pick something for those two fields that looks like your FT username (so that we know who you are).
  • this also applies to those who played last year, but can't remember their ID and/or have changed their email address and thus can't retrieve their password (which they've forgotten) .. you will need to re-register.
  • please check your reg'd email address in your account settings/profile after you login.
This year's tipping comp is the 11th edition of March Madness (strewth, where have those 11 years gone). No one has retained their title in this comp, and no one has won it twice (but some have been on the podium twice). The defending title-holder is N-Bomb (silver and bronze went to rxbigdawg and toocool4u .. the winner of the 2008 comp, ralzzz, holds the record for the biggest winning margin (see summary tables of last 10 comps at end of this post) .. and doomed won bronze that year the hard way; he failed to pick any of the Final Four! Howie72 holds the record for the most correct picks with 51/63, achieved in the 2007 comp.

However, the last four teams to qualify will not be known until Monday and Tuesday (they will enter the comp as the four #16 seeds). btw a #16 seed has never won a game against their #1 seed opponents since the NCAA started the current Madness format in 1985.
    Last Four play-in: Tue/Wed 13/14 March
    First Round: Thu-Fri March 15-16
    Second Round: Sat-Sun March 17-18

    Championship: Monday 2nd April
    Final Four play-offs at Louisian Superdome, New Orleans LA

    Deadline: cbssports/com will close the bracket of 63 picks at noon EDT on Thursday 15 March.
Good luck remembering your password (if you receive the email) or your ID (if you're reg'd but have changed your email address) .. and good luck registering if you're new!

Neither of you have posted in the message boards. I have.

Bring on the Madness!

One thing to note is only three have had 50 or more picks correct, which was the year Howie72 broke the record.

I got an email saying brackets were open, but according to the site, they are not. Am I misreading something?

Last year we had 19 runners .. and this year 15 of us are back for another dose. No shows are linkan, rxbigdawg, Sarah606 and szabs. Three of them signed in over at cbs but must've missed the deadline for picks.

This is the 11th edition of the Madness tipping comp. The first 10 were run from 2002 to 2011 and produced 11 different winners. At the end of Day One we have the defending titleholder, N-Bomb, in the bottom half of the table.

Positions #1 through to #3 are occupied by players who have never won this .. ditto three of the four in equal 4th .. illiniman14, the 4th player in equal 4th, is the highest placed previous-winner (he won gold two years ago in 2010).

There were three upsets on Day One .. seven of us picked the win by 11th seed Colorado, and 3 players had the hide to pick #12 VCU to beat #5 Wichita State!

dg_dave picked 15/16 .. he missed the win by Iowa State.

One player has already lost one of his picks for the Final Four. That's 16 games out of the way .. there are 63 games in this Madness!

Does that mean I make the HoF near miss list with that 15/16?

We've never tracked those for knock-out tournaments .. only for season long tipping comps. I've had a quick look through prior March Madness results and we've had 15/16 picks in the first two days before this year's comp.

Oh boy. Norfolk State over Missouri, Ohio just about to polish off Michigan, Duke's having problems with Lehigh

Brackets = Busted. frown

Edited to add: Ohio won, and so did Lehigh

Four #15 seeds have beaten #2 seeds before today (1991, 1993, 1997, 2001). 2 (Norfolk and Lehigh) did today. crazy

Definitely a bracket-busting day. My hopes rest on how I won last year - a final 4 that nobody has predicted!

Before this year's comp, just four #15 seeds had won a March Madness game. Day Two saw two #15 seeds win! No-one was brave enough to pick either win.

Only two of us kept our position in the Standings from yesterday (both in the bottom half) .. aka no-one in the top half of the table retained their position from Day One. No wonder they call this Madness.

  • four of the 16 games were picked by everyone.
  • two games were picked by no-one (the #15 seeds).
  • just 6 of 15 have four live picks for the Final Four!
  • four players lost one of their two finalists.
  • three players have lost their winner!

    There are 31 games left in this Madness, and no-one has 31 live picks. Best is George95 in 2nd place with 28 live, and lowest is ozzz2002 who's running 2nd last with 18 live.
