    OK, so maybe you picked Wake Forest going to Detroit. You're not alone. And while your original brackets may be lining your birdcage or your PC's wastebucket, you still want to show that your a college basketball expert.

    Well, I'm here to help. I'm giving you a second chance at winning.

    Here's the format:

    1. Pick any 8 of the remaining 16 teams left in the NCAA tournament, and rank them from 1 (highest) to 8 (lowest).
    2. For each game your picks win, you earn points. See table below for point breakdown:

    Pick 1. -- 8 points
    Pick 2. -- 7 points
    Pick 3. -- 6 points
    Pick 4. -- 5 points
    Pick 5. -- 4 points
    Pick 6. -- 3 points
    Pick 7. -- 2 points
    Pick 8. -- 1 point

    3. There is no financial prize for winning this pool. But you can tell your friends you won a tournament pool. That's worth something, isn't it?
    4. Picks should be posted in this thread and must be submitted no later than 7:00:00 ET on Thursday.

    Questions? Just let me know.

    No love for MSU for many of you? Tom Izzo's wrath will be felt.
