A little over four weeks until Selection Sunday, and it is my firm belief that WE HAVE TO HAVE an NCAA Bracket bet here on ATS! Don't we?!??
Here’s my thoughts, just to get the ball rolling:
ATS Members buy into The Great ATS NCAA Bracket Challenge for 1,000 points.
Once the brackets are released, participating members list their winners for each round.
Scoring could be one of a couple ways:
Correct 1st Round Selection: 1 point
Correct 2nd Round Selection: 3 points
Correct Sweet 16 Selection: 5 points
Correct Elite 8 Selection: 10 points
Correct Final 4 Selection: 15 points
Correct Championship Game Selection: 20 points
Correct Champion: 30 points
All correct predictions are worth 1 point, whether it’s the Play-In Game or the Championship.
Top Score = 70% of points in the pot.
2nd Place = 20% of points in the pot.
3rd Place = 10% of points in the pot.
First and foremost, if there is already an annual ATS Bracket, then ignore this post and I’ll wait patiently for the announcement.
Second, obviously some moderator assistance will be needed with the points…moderator thoughts?
Third, chime in with thoughts for other formats or improvements.
The above are just suggestions and we have FOUR WEEKS to get it how we want it!
