  • The Tafnut NCAA Challenge

    T&FN had better have their own NCAA contest (hint, hint - edit: hey it's already Monday afternoon, fellas!), but here’s one too. Deadline for submissions is Tuesday midnight PDT.

    Here’s how this game works: Here are the T&FN and TrackWire picks for NCAA gold. If only one name is listed, he/she is the favorite by both. Your job is to beat the experts.

    1. If you agree with the consensus pick, do not make a selection.
    2. If they disagree, pick one of the two (1 point) or pick someone else (2 points)
    3. If you disagree with the consensus, pick someone else (2 points)
    4. But . . . if you pick wrong, you get negative points, -1 or -2, as the case may be. If you end up with a negative number, you have LOST to the experts.
    5. Person with the most points wins. What do you win? The bragging rights to ‘beating the experts.’

    I think you mean "negative" number. If I understand your rules, the experts are at 0, if you trump them, you are positive.

      oops - right - I made the change. I'll post mine tonight, so y'all can at least beat me. :-)

        Senior Ida Nilsson has set a new Swedish national record in each of the past three NCAA Championships. A fourth, and the facilities goof-up in California will be forgotten.

                            Tafnut,

                            I have no idea why more people aren't excited about the NCAA's, which will probably produce as many or more world-class performances than most Golden meets this year.

                            We should stay tuned.
