    Password: allbuffs

    I sent an invite to everyone who participated last year (you'll get an email to the address you had in the yahoo system for last year's registration).

    This is all about bragging rights.

    Unless, of course, there's a way to tie in vBucks and/or rep.

    Just a reminder to join up today.

    If you participated last year, you should have gotten an email. Regardless, join up and make sure Darth Snow doesn't finish in the Top 10 this year.

    More details, please.
    the link in the OP is returning a problem message.

    what is the name/number of the group?

    Group name is: Allbuffs
    Group number is: 45515 (I think that's right)
    Password is: allbuffs

    If anyone wants to join and has an issue, let me know and I'll try to figure it out.

    Do you get 1 Billion vBucks with a perfect bracket?

    For some reason yahoo is being a royal pain in the ass. First I tried my password and it claimed I used the wrong password so I had it reset my password, so it sent me a link to reset my password and regardless of how complex my password was it kept rejecting it. So I finally gave up and created a new account and now every time I go to join this group and it wants to send verification to my cell number for some unknown reason, so I play along and enter a 5-digit verification code and then it comes with this:

    That cell phone thing happened when I went to join Adam's bracket for Rivals. I got that message, but when I logged back into yahoo I was in. Not a good time for their site to be buggy. Something that's not good is going on in their IT department. They went down across the Rivals network on National Signing Day this year, too.

    I'm in.

    Notice - I was unable to register using a mobile device/tablet. Entry required signing up through the PC/Mac.

    There is an authentication process on the PC/Mac that does not launch on the tablet/phone.

    I tried as well. I believe yahoo is insisting that players provide mobile cell numbers so they can send marketing text messages. Bitches.

    Anyone know of a way to sign-up without having a U.S. mobile number? Yahoo sucks.

    Presumably, they send you a verification code via text.

    what about getting a google voice number? If you don't want to sign up you can just borrow mine and I'll forward that text on to you. Just pm me.

    Finally got mine done. I put sparty, l'ville, AZ & Florida in the final 4.
    I was really torn on the baylor/neb game. I really hate baylor but I think they are better.

    Same F4. E8 I have the GAYtors, Orange, Spartans, 'Heels, Cats, Ducks, Cards, and Wolverines.

    I like Oregon against Wiscy. I think the offensive firepower will be too much for the badgers.

    That's mine right now as is Nate Silver's. I have AZ-UF in the Finals with AZ winning.

    Agree with you on Baylor-Nebraska.

    Damnit, I'm like second guessing myself like crazy. I've got a total of 6 to do. Any of you guys doing the billion dollar bracket? I didn't read much before posting so pardon me. Some tough matchups to pick.

    I'm drafting my resignation letter to my employer in the event I win.
