2018 March Madness Tournament Bracket Challenge!

Now’s your chance to prove you know more than a “writer”! Shouldn’t be too hard.

I’m pretty anti-NCAA Tournament right now, but somehow, it was my lot to get this challenge up and going anyway. Probably because in spite of my generally good performance as a “writer,” I still somehow fell to the fifth-seed in our lower tier of “writers” and I’m just supposed to be ok with whatever assignment gets thrown at me, like setting up a tournament pool. Whatever. It happens. Apparently.

No, I’m not mad about Nebrasketball, why do you ask?

Anyway, you’re here to pit yourself against commenters you love and commenters you hate in this high-stakes* contest of knowledge/wild prediction. Here’s how to get your piece of the action:

  1. Follow this link: and join the “OTE Bracket Pool”
  2. Sign up
  3. Fill out your bracket with lots of wrong takes and wishful thinking
  4. Fail miserably, probably

Yay March!!!

*Stakes are actually non-existent, don’t get too excited.
