This post is meant as a companion to Caleb's excellent Redreporter Bracket Challenge. If you haven't set up your brackets yet, go to his
diary fanpost and check it out.
Instead of doing a bracket, this pool will rely on the cutthroat KNOCKOUT method, first engineered by Thaddeus Hornspackle during the Schenectady Foot Ball Championships in 1933. You pick one team every day, and that team must win or else you do not advance. And you can not pick that team again for the rest of the tournament. So if you think Northern Iowa will face Sam Houston State in the final game, you should probably save those teams for later. Otherwise you could find yourself in the final four with no teams left to choose from, and you lose.
The last person standing wins. Lots of pride is at stake, but no money. That's what office pools are for! You must make a pick every day, before your team's game starts. I'll keep up with the contestants every day and who they've selected, and all the action will take place in this thread.
So if you want to play, announce your intentions here and submit a team name tomorrow. That's it. Let's have fun!
