Welcome to the 21st annual March Madness thread! This year's challenge for Silicon Investor members (and their family and friends) will be, once again, on the CBS Sportsline site.

1. To access the pool (when available), click here [note that Sportsline has retained the "si2004" ID from years past]:

Our group password is: si2008 [retained from 11 years ago]

2. If you have don't have a Sportsline account, you will be prompted on how to create one.

Important Note: If you wish to remain totally anonymous, you should either register using an anonymous e-mail account, or, after accessing the pool home page, click on "Options" then "Personal" to control what information about you gets revealed to others in the pool.

3. Scoring will be 1 point for the first round, 2 for the second, 4 for the third (Sweet 16), 8 for fourth (Elite 8), 16 for the fifth (Final 4), and 32 for the championship game. A bonus will also be added equal to the number of the winning seed. For example, in round three if you correctly choose a 9 seed to beat a 3 seed then you get 4 points (for a round three winner) + 9 points (for the seed) = 13 total points.

4. If you use a name different from your SI ID, please indicate here which person is you.


BTW, the odds of guessing all 63 games correctly is 1 in 9.25 quintillion!

Good luck!

- Jeff
