College Basketball Pool

Hey RTC contributors and's tourney time again - something to take our minds off the demise of Man City FC and the fact that Arsenal will not have any silverware this season...
So, spread the word - please!
As the UCLA Bruins seek their 12th title this year in men's basketball ("powerhouses" UNC and Duke have seven, combined), I'll try to keep this pool as simple as possible - especially for Big 10 fans.
The participation donation is $10. You can contact me to get my address to mail it. No hurry, but prior to the end of the second round would be great.
1st Place = 65%
2nd Place = 25%
3rd Place = 10%

Because I don't wish to waste time dealing with spreadsheets, late entries and disputes over selections or point totals, this year's pool will be run through Yahoo.
To enter, follow these easy steps:
1. Go to this link
2. Select "Join a Group."
3. If you have a Yahoo ID, simply enter your user name and password. If you don't, it takes about three minutes to get one.
4. Agree to the terms and conditions.
5. Select "Private Group."
6. Enter the Group ID number: 54742
Note: the group name is Buzzer Beaters.
7. Enter the password: thunderfc
8. You will then be able to select the name for your bracket (be creative) and choose user options. Yahoo will send updates and reminders to you about entry deadlines, etc.
That's it! You're in! The only final suggestion (other than picking the Bruins) is to forward this email to all of your friends - the bigger the pot, well, you get the idea!
