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.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!
