      RG Overall Ranking

    • 2014 RG Season Champion: CBB

    We are live with 174 entered on Yahoo! Payouts will mirror last year similarly:

    1st – $7,000
    2nd – $3,500
    3rd – $2,500
    4th – $1,500
    5th – $1,000
    6th – $500
    7th – $500
    8th – $500
    9th – $400

    Total: $17,400

    It’s that time of year again! This will be the 4rd instance of the bracket pool ran by me here on RG. First year we had 94 entries, increased to 127 the second year and last year we hit 159. Enter a few brackets, tell your friends, and lets make this year bigger than the last few.

    The bracket pool is a $100 buy-in, 5 entry max pool ran on Yahoo with Fibonacci scoring (2-3-5-8-13-21).

    To enter, send $100 per entry to varncass@gmail.com on PayPal and try to use a random number at the end (such as $100.05 or $99.98 if entering one bracket) to avoid the gambling sensors. Please put your RG username in the notes, and I will send you the Group ID and password on Yahoo where you can enter. When you create the bracket in the pool, please name your bracket as the same as your RG username so I know who to pay if you are to win one of the prizes.

    I’ll start it off as usual with 5…

    Goodluck everyone!

    No problem.

    I received payment for 175 brackets and only 174 entered in Yahoo. PM me if weren’t able to get your bracket in

  • jdubadubs

    I made a sheet with all the users picks by matchup and round if anyone is interested:

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1cK6F2EBKXS3IoMes1WLO7IRZU0AHKlPj7Nn80fAu-ZU/edit?usp=sharing

    Most surprising was probably Kansas somehow being in 158 Elite 8s yet only 25 Final 4s, 7 Championship Games, and only 1 Champ

    Also despite a 7+ seed making the Final 4 5 straight years, only 2 people had any in their Final 4: Oklahoma (lost already) and Missouri

    Not near enough has been made of how awesome this spreadsheet is. Great job!

  • hillfamily5

    I agree. Seriously, he has done a wonderful job with this.

  • EC4THREE10

    Varncass you remember the winning scores from last year? I couldn’t find it on Yahoo from the last two years.
