It’s back — the Outsports NCAA men’s tournament challenge. Fill out your bracket and curse or cheer depending on the results.

We are using Yahoo’s bracket this year and signing up is easy:

  • Click on "Sign up and find a group" (It’s near the bottom under “Join a group with fans of your favorite school”)
  • Click on “Join Private Group”
  • Group ID#: 93356

Even though this is a private group, feel free to invite anyone you wish.

If you have a Yahoo account, log in. If not, create an account.

Scoring:

Round 1: 1 point per correct pick

Round 2: 2 points per correct pick

Sweet 16: 4 points per correct pick

Elite 8: 8 points per correct pick

Semis: 16 points per correct pick

Final: 32 points per correct pick

Note: You always get 1 point times the team seed. For example, if you pick a 12-seed to win, you get 12 points if they do; 5 points for a 5-seed etc. This encourages picking early-round upsets.
