Bracket How To - suggestions

10 posts in this topic

Here's my deal, I don't know squat about B-Ball and especially college hoops. But I like watching the tourney games and getting in on brackets. Usually I read an article or 2 go off that and fill in some random winners on my bracket, this never works. Does anyone have any suggestions on a better way to do some research?

what has worked for me is start out by filling out ALL the favorites. Now research online and pick a few upsets.

Stick with the favorites. People love to talk about the upset they picked, but usually they get a bunch wrong because they go upset crazy. Stick to the favorites mix in a few upsets, but don't go hog wild with them. To win a pool you usually need 4 of 4 final four teams(unless something like last years George Mason happens) and the winner right. Good luck

Do your homework!

Scour the internet, TV, and newspapers!

Listen to the experts!

Then pick the opposites.

Sure fire way for picking all the games.

Step 1 Take a dollar bill and go to the store and buy exactly 75 cents worth of hard salami.

Step 2 Bring the hard salami home with you in a clear plastic bag, making sure to put the remaining quarter you get back from the cashier in your left front pocket.

Note: Be sure to put the quarter into your left front pocket but be sure to do it with your right hand only, remember, your right hand only.

Step 3 Once at home, open a beverage of your choice but be sure it is in a can, bottles will not work, it has been proven by many scientists.

Step 4 Consume the 75 cents worth of hard salami, eating each slice with alternating hands, right then left then right until it is gone.

Step 5 Very important step. You must consume one can of the beverage of your choice with every 5 slices of hard salami and more importantly you must drink the beverage with the opposite hand that you are eating the hard salami with.

Step 6 After consuming all the hard salami and accompanying beverage of choice, remove the quarter from your left front pocket but this time be sure to remove it with your left hand, not your right.

Step 7 Start picking your teams by flipping the freakin quarter and calling heads or tails.

You will do just as good this way as all the other ways and at least you will have a good buzz on and will have eaten dinner!!!!

LOL

Good Luck Guys, get into our FM pools and may the best man win.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!
