March Madness is here! We'd love to have more community members join the annual pool over at Yahoo! We've got 24 in the group already from the DK Fantasy Leagues and would love to grow the group. The more, the merrier...all you need to play is a Yahoo! ID. If you've got a friend or two you'd like to invite, we're all for it.

Details are below the jump. Tourney discussion is always welcome in the comments and don't forget to take the poll!

UPDATE: I love the bracket. The right 68 teams are in. Gonzaga with a #1 seed. Great games abound. The potential New Mexico-Arizona third round game is phenomenal. Pitt vs. Wichita State, Notre Dame v. Iowa State, NC State v. Temple, Marquette vs. Davidson. Boise State vs. LaSalle & St. Mary's vs. Middle Tennessee are excellent leadoff games Tuesday!

We added custom scoring this year!

I added the seed difference bonus option. Let's say you correctly pick an 11 seed over a 6 seed. Your bonus would be five points! 11-6=5 It's that simple! You'd also get the win point for getting the game correct.

I felt that some picks are better than others and you should get credit for hitting those upset specials!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
