The weather outside is frightful (if you live in the North... it's 80 today at my house), but Spring is just around the corner. That means it's time for basketball.

Here's more info, stolen liberally as usual from prior years:

We want people to play even if they don't care about sports. So spare me your posts about "what game is this? Does it have a ball?" it doesn't matter. The fun is in the guessing. Our provider, ESPN, will let you create an account with social media, and it will help you make picks any time you want, so you can put in as much or as little work as you feel like. If you run into problems, feel free to ask questions in here or in Discord.

You can make automatic picks any time, though they will be boring picks. So you can sign up now, click a button, and forget about it if you want. Or you can click the button and come back later to make "better" picks. We will know what teams are in the bracket on March 12, at around 7pm Eastern time. The games that fully matter start this year on March 16, and brackets tend to lock right before noon Eastern on March 16.

Again, the best time to make picks is between the evening on March 12 and the morning of March 16, so plan on doing it within that window. If you sign up ASAP, I'll remind you via email, social media posts, and in this thread.

Hope to see you playing!

My annual pop-in to catch CoNCAA worked perfectly this year, and as soon as ESPN .com stops being ridiculous and lets me sign in again, I'll set up my bracket even though I'm only knowledgeable enough to try beating the guessing strategy.

Well, I'm in again with my "Totally Clueless" bracket. This time I picked based on college names that sounded more pleasing to me, haha. We'll see how well I do!

Thanks for running this - right now I need all the distractions I can get.

All I do is click links and harass people to sign up, but I'll take whatever credit you want to give. biggrin.gif

I'm sad that ESPN's website never cooperated with me, but with all the upsets so far, I feel like I'd already be out of contention.

Is it possible to actually contact the ESPN website as I failed to do this myself last year?

Well folks, that's a wrap. The tournament isn't over, but every single position in CoNCAA 2023 is now locked in. Congrats to this year's top three!

I hadn't caught that, that's amazing. What an absolute trainwreck of a tournament, it's been one of the most fun in years.

I belatedly heard about how insane the results were this year.

I definitely missed A Thing.
