    Looking to start up a Sweet 16 pool
    Need 16 Players for 1 team each OR 8 players with 2 teams each

    16 players @ $100
    each is randomly assigned to a team (using RANDOM.ORG to assign players to teams)
    Matchups are against the spread (Using Pinnacle opening lines)
    if you have the favorite and they cover you move on with that team
    if you have the underdog and they WIN you move on with that team
    if you have the underdog and they cover but don't win, you move on and take over the other team
    All lines will have a 1/2 a point added to it to avoid any PUSH results

    Payouts would be
    16 players at $1,600 pot
    Winner wins $500
    2nd place $300
    Final Four teams $200 ea

    --------------
    So If you make the final four you win 200 (double entry)
    Move to the championship game you're guarenteed at least a 2nd place finish of 300 (making winnings $500 for a 2nd place winner or $700 for 1st)

    This needs to be filled and teams assigned by FRIDAY March 23rd. USE PP to reserve your spot send to bman1584@yahoo.com I will start the list off so I need 15 more players.

    add your name to the list if you want in.

    We can also go with 8 at either $200 for 2 teams or keep it at $100 but payouts would be cut in half in that situation with only 8 in the pot. If we end up with 8 and each getting 2 teams we will randomize teams to players and from there make sure players have one team on each side

    So we'll go by the following rules

    8 players @ $100
    Each is randomly assigned 2 teams / one team from each side of the bracket (using RANDOM.ORG to assign players to teams)
    Matchups are against the spread (Using Pinnacle opening lines)
    If you have the favorite and they cover you move on with that team
    If you have the underdog and they WIN you move on with that team
    If you have the underdog and they cover but don't win, you move on and take over the winning team
    All lines will have 1/2 a point added if the line is a whole number. This is to avoid any PUSH results. (ie; Kansas -6 would move to Kansas -6.5)

    Payouts would be
    8 players at $800 pot
    Winner = $250
    2nd = $150
    Final Four = $100 ea.
    (Players making the final four win 100 plus move onto the championship game 2nd wins 150 totaling 250 / or Champion wins 250 totaling 350)

    8 players $100 - 2 teams ea.

    will
    reach out to JOH to draw some randomized numbers. (3 sets)
    First set will reassign the order of our players from the sign up list.
    Second set will be assigned to the new order of players and will correlate to the teams ranks in order. (South & West regions)
    The third set of numbers will again be assigned to the sign up list of players and correlate to the right side of the bracket (East & Midwest) in order.
    this may sound a bit confusing reading it but I’ll explain it further when JOH gets the sets of numbers out.

    Will post the remaining 16 teams by their rank per side of the bracket and align those together with our sign up list
