It's mid-March, and you know what that means. Our 6th blog bracket challenge!!
Who is the greatest literary bracket prognosticator of them all?
Probably whoever has not been following basketball this year. People, that's how these things work.
All you have to do is pick winners in a tournament of 64 er 68 teams. It is basically mathematically impossible to pick them all correctly. Except I'm totally going to do that this year.
Here we go!
The winner with the most points at the end of the NCAA tournament will win a query critique and a copy of whichever of my books you so desire!! (or other suitable agreed-upon prize)
Here's how to enter:
1. Go to the front page of the ESPN tournament challenge: http://games.espn.go.com/tcmen/frontpage
2. Make your picks.
3. If you have an ESPN username and password from last year you can log in when you submit your picks, and you can also just click to rejoin the Bransford Blog Challenge. Otherwise you may need to create a new user ID and password. But don't worry, it's not onerous and you can decline to receive updates in case you're spam conscious.
4. Hover over the link that says "My Groups" and then click "Create or Join a Group"
5. Search for "Bransford Blog Challenge." Enter the password, which is "rhetorical" and then click Join Group.
Then you're all set! You can make changes to your bracket by clicking on it until it locks on Thursday (and yes, there are play-in games before then, but the bracket still doesn't lock until Thursday).
All updates/trahstalking will occur in this dedicated thread in the Forums, so make sure to join us there.
