    You have Virginia listed twice. Villanova's 8-seed is Wisconsin.

    I had auto updates on and it kept resetting to 2016 every hour. I've fixed this damn thing 4 times before I finally figured it out...I think it's all fixed now.

    sent you a pw from my gmail.

    Some email providers & even ISP's filter your mail....they'll block small mail hosts while letting the largest spam sources like gmail, hotmail, yahoo, etc spam the shit out of us.
    Thats why I don't use webmail...I use Thunderbird.

    Last year there were several people that waited till the last 5 min to email me and I could not get all of them a PW in time.

    This year, we'll try something different. To be fair...cutoff time is cutoff time. Miss the time and you can't get in. However, if you have login problems, can't figure it out, too drunk, nearing third base before the first game, etc, paste your picks in this thread or post a pic of a filled out bracket and we'll hash out the technical problems after tip-off. Your picks have to be documented here or on the site.

    What do I click to create my bracket once I get to the home page? When I click on "My Brackets", it takes me out and says I'm not logged on?

    If you have technical problems.
    A: Stay Calm
    B: Paste your picks in this thread or post a pic of a filled out bracket and we'll hash out the technical problems after tip-off.

    Here's my picks. I'm starting on the left side of the bracket (East on top, West on bottom) and listing all first round winners, then all 2nd round, etc. After finishing the left side, I'll do the same thing to the right side.

    Left: (1st rd.) Nova, Wisc, Va., Fla., SMU, Baylor, Marquette, Duke, Gonzaga, Vandy, N.D., W.V., X, Fl. St., VCU, Az.; (2nd rd) Nova, Fla.,SMU, Duke, Gonz., N.D., Fl. St., Az.; (3rd) Nova, SMU, Gonz., Az; (4th) Nova, Az.; (championship game) Az.

    Right: (1st) Kansas, Mia., I.St., Pur., Creigh., Oreg., OSU, UL, UNC, SH, Mid. Ten., But., Cinci., UCLA, W.St., UK; (2nd) Kansas, Pur., Ore., UL, UNC, M.T., UCLA, UK; (3rd) Pur., Ore., UNC, UK; (4th) Oreg., UK; (championship game) UK

    Champion: UK
    Combined score: 161

    Thanks for your help.
