Rock M-tology Pick 'Em!

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

UPDATE, Tuesday (8:04am): I've added the Yahoo league to the 'submitting picks' option.

Welcome to the Rock M-tology Pick 'Em!  I won't waste too much time explaining how this works--I assume you all know.  If you've entered a bracket pool before, you know what's going on here.  And if you haven't, were smart enough to discover Rock M Nation, so I'm sure you're smart enough to figure this out.  Here are the basics:

Submitting Picks

You have three choices: 1) you can post your picks at this yahoo site, 2) you can post your picks in the Comments section of this thread, or 3) you may e-mail them to us at  Life is all about choices!


You have until Thursday, 11am, to get your picks in.


First round games = 1 pt
Second round games = 2 pts
Sweet Sixteen games = 3 pts
Elite Eight games = 4 pts
Final Four games = 5 pts
National Champion pick = 10 pts


Gambling's illegal as we all know, but we'll just say that when we actually get around to creating Rock M Nation T-shirts (I won't be overly ambitious here--I'll just say that we should get to it over the summer), the winner of the Rock M-tology Pick 'Em will likely receive a 'complimentary' one.

I think that's all you need to know.  For a bracket, either click here or click 'Full Story' for a typed-out version.
