What are you waiting for? Join our Bracket Challenge

Just because the Cougars are done playing doesn't mean you leave college basketball in the dust. The fun is just beginning, with or without my beloved Cougs.

If you haven't done so yet, take a few minutes to join the CougCenter Bracket Challenge at Yahoo! -- a group specially limited to the members of CougCenter. Thanks to the generosity of my buddy LeaveItToWeaver, the winner will receive a pair of pretty cool prizes.

At last check we've got about 40 people signed up, which isn't bad, but given the amount of members of this blog and the amount of traffic this site receives, I was hoping for at least double that. So if you're sitting on the fence, get on it. Besides, this is your chance to make me look silly -- I am notoriously crappy at these things.

Here's how you join up:

  1. Click on this link.
  2. Sign in, or sign up for a Yahoo! account if you don't have one.
  3. Create an entry and -- THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT -- title it with your screen name on CougCenter. (My entry, for example, is called "Nuss" and Craig's is called "Dancing Football.")
  4. Make your picks.

The reason we want you to title it with your CougCenter screen name is because we're going to post the standings throughout each day and into the night for all to see here on the blog, and it's better if everyone knows who everyone is in the standings. Much better for talking trash, you know?

If you want to join in but haven't joined CougCenter yet, just join the blog by clicking that little "Start Posting Now" button right under our logo. Create a name, then create your bracket and you're good to go. If there are any brackets in there that I can't match up with a CougCenter member, I'll be deleting them.

It's a lot of fun -- we did it last year on my previous blog. I finished ninth out of 23 people, proving once and for all that I, in fact, do not know everything. (Just don't tell my wife.) Johnnycougar was in there, placing 11th. And I'm sure others of you who followed me over here were in there, too.
