We're gonna do a bracket pool... I will post a template for the brackets, and then you'll all fill them out and post. Of course this won't be for a while. But when it happens this is how it will work:
We're going to do it round by round so that if you screw up in the first round, it won't completely screw you over. However, predictions of who will be in the final will be made BEFORE the conference finals.
1 win for choosing the correct winner of the series
1 loss for choosing the incorrect winner of the series
2 wins for choosing the correct winner and the # of games won by each side
For the final we're gonna do it game by game
(so if you pick the wrong teams to end up in the final, it's ok because you can still get points)
1 win for choosing the winning team
1 loss for choosing the losing team
2 wins for choosing the winning team and predicting the correct score
At the end the person with the best record will be declared the winner.
