    I really want to pick Tennessee, just not sure they can make it past UCLA.

    There’s only 23 submitted brackets as of now.

    If you need to get yours in, please do so.

    If you would like to share / invite others, it would be appreciated, and please do so.

    Obviously, I am ineligible for any prizes (will just remove my score from consideration), so you schleps actually have a chance to win this year.

    Whoever wins and didn't pick Tennessee should get the prize and be banned.

    I can't click to get into the group. It takes me to the ESPN fantasy homepage. I wanted to see who people picked.

    Can’t see individual picks until entries can no longer be edited / submitted, after games begin.

    I think there’s a better chance that Groves makes Indy a site foreman than Tennessee wins it all, but I couldn’t pick against them. Wouldn’t pick against them.

    Even knowing that this [itch bay] will soon crest the cliff into oblivion, I’m content to know that we all went down together, to the end.

    I must not be in the right 8thMaxim.com group. It shows that there is only 1 entry.

    You can enter a bracket in multiple groups. Might still be able to move it.
