2016 NCAA Basketball Bracket Challenge

241 posts in this topic

It's still early, but I figured I'd get our group signed up so that you folks can start signing up for the NCAAT Bracket Challenge.

This is the official SEC Talk NCAA Tournament Bracket competition thread. We will be using ESPN.com. The info to participate is below.

ESPN Tournament Challenge

Group Name: SEC Talk (make sure you put a space between the two words)

Password: SEC

Obviously, you can't can't fill out the bracket until the NCAA selections are complete in a few weeks and the brackets are ready. However, go ahead and sign up so you'll be ready.

Make sure that when you sign up to use your "exact" SEC Talk ID for your bracket so we can identify who is participating and therefore, who has bragging rights. If you sign up using a different ID than your SEC Talk ID and we can't identify you as a valid SEC Talk member, I may remove you from our group on ESPN. It's pretty simple...when you sign up for the bracket, just name your bracket with your SEC Talk ID.

Only one bracket per participant is allowed for this group.

Good luck to everyone!

I'll sign up monday when the bracket is set. And I'll most likely win since I've only watched two games total all season.

Are you sure you're trying to get into this year's group and not last year's? It shouldn't be locked since this year's bracket is still open.

Someone else try and post letting me know if you were successful.

I saw the last years page but was pretty sure I went back to 2016. I'm probably doing something stupid. I will be in before long

Think USC and Georgia got screwed. Shows how much the committee and in essence the country views SEC basketball.

Don't worry folks, Ben howland and state is on the way.

SEC really does kind of stink though. The Top tier with Kentucky and Texas A&M is fine. That second tier had too many losses to teams towards the bottom and that's what hurts the perception.

Can't wait for the NIT bracket to be revealed. Hoping we are at least a 4 seed so Retin Oballsohard gets one more game at home.
