Chicagoist NCAA Tournament Challenge

By Benjy Lipsman in News on Mar 14, 2011 4:40PM

2011_03_chicagoist_tournament_challenge_bracket.jpg March Madness is here! The conference tournaments concluded yesterday and now the NCAA Tournament's field of 68 (yes, 68) is set. So it's time once again for Chicagoist's Tournament Challenge. Fill out your bracket and compete against Chicagoist staff and readers for the chance to celebrate your own shining moment. But winning's not easy. The past couple of years, we've had over 100 entries in our pool, and last year's winner, K. Oser, finished in the 99.9th percentile of all ESPN Tournament Challenge entries. Our staff experts didn't do quite so well. I finished 35th while former editor-in-chief Marcus Gilmer placed 51st.

To join our pool, go to ESPN's Tournament Challenge, find the Chicagoist group and fill out your bracket. In addition to having the winner announced on the site, there is also a prize for the top scoring reader bracket. So only one entry per person, please.

Good luck! And don't forget to complete your bracket before Thursday's games start. ESPN's giving you the wins in the "first round" play-in games.
