How many brackets do you fill out?

    Do you go with just one? Or are you the Sybil of the NCAA brackets?

    Me--I've got about 6--yahoo, ESPN, Sportsline, an office pool. Lots of variation in the first two rounds, but all of them come back to UNC and UCLA in the end.

    I filled out three immediately after the field was set, then I filled out my "official" one and trashed the first three. I entered my official bracket in about six different contests.

    But then I filled out one off-the-wall bracket, just for kicks.

    My wife has so many brackets that are so varied in her picks, she won't even know who she needs to win the games.

    I have 2 brackets in my main pool. It's the way I've done it for the past 10 years. I haven't won in 8 years, though, so it doesn't seem to help.

    I only do one per pool. Sometimes two, but usually one. It's my sheet of integrity :)

    And integrity gets me usually in the bottom half of the pool

    Same here, Bob. But I used to fill out a dozen, and that was worse. Sure, one of them might turn out pretty good, but it was a total clusterf*ck to keep track of my picks.

    I'll fill out as many brackets as I get invites. Anyone else need more entrants?? (Cash pools, please.)

    I also try to get a variety. Did one where you pick a group of 10 teams and get points based on seeds if they win. Did one where you pick the whole bracket and get points based on the seeds if they win. Did a couple traditional ones. Did a draft where we got nine people together and take turns picking teams; whoever's teams win the most games wins it all.

    I mix up my picks based on the scoring rules, but I think I've picked UCLA to win it all in each one so far.

    I filled out one, and that was for the SportsJournalists.com thing. That's it.
  8. Two.
    And I'm in a blind draw pool -- Go Boilermakers! -- every year, too.

    So you have UK in Final Four right?

    OR losing in the first round.

    I do have a sig bet with Fenian on the game, though. He's cheating and only giving me five points though. :)

    I don't think UK can handle the Marquette guards.

    I usually fill out three — one for me and one each for my two cats.
