    You should gain access March 16. I don't know if it should lock out tho.

    I forgot I won last year :p

    I don't think I got cash back in my money pool. I should figure that out. Either way, I'm excited for this year. There seems to be a lot of unpredictability going into the tournament (MSU plummeting, Syracuse going 1-4, Michigan on a roll). Should be fun!

    As a past winner -'06? I think I'll try again this year-past years I haven't watched as much as this year. I might pick one correctly this time....maybe...

    Looks like I'm tied for the 2014 lead!

    So if anyone is interested, there is one more spot left in the Mac Rumors Fantasy Baseball league. We draft tomorrow so let me know if you want the last spot.

    I've already made all my picks for my brackets except my money pool, as the pool has not sent out brackets yet. So excited! It's like Christmas, minus the family, but better.

    Hi,
    is this bracket open to everyone?
    i tried the link but i don't seem to be able to join the bracket.
    if i use my own log in at cbssports, it tells me i have no privileges, if i try to log in with the group name (MacRumors 2014 Bracket Challenge) it tells me it is not a valid username. obviously I am missing something. suggestions?

    I think I either made my picks too early or didn't save them because I just went in and didn't see a bracket for myself and had to re-do it.

    Right now one of the play in games is locked, but I hope it isn't permanently (just game going on). I was going for Play In over SLU.

    I was able to update my pick of NC State over SLU - woo hoo!

    Tomorrow the real fun starts. I don't watch the play in games personally. I'll get some use out of my dual monitor setup at work tomorrow ;)
