    I had to make some adjustments from my office pool, since this one doesn't have Underdog Bonus Scoring.  Of course, now I should have voted "2" in the poll.

      •  The scoring includes underdog bonus points. (3+ / 0-)

        When you pick an underdog and they win, you get points equal to the difference between the seeds times the round it is in.  For example, if I have MN beating UCLA in the first round, I get 5 points ((11-6)x1); if I had them beating Georgetown in the third round, I would get 27 points ((11-2)x 3).

        I have a system that I pick the underdog in every 1st round game where I do not have the winner advancing any further, which served me very well last year.  (Despite my Gopher loyalty, I do not have them going that far.)
