2013 Spitblood TCU Bracket Challenge


It's time to sign up for this year's bracket challenge. We had 330 entries last year with 1st place taking home over $2,000. I'm upping the entry this year to $20. CBS Sports will only allow 400 entries, so we might as well play for more $. You can still submit up to 3 brackets in the tournament pool.

Payouts:
1st - 70%
2nd - 20%
3rd - 10%

Scoring:
First Round - 1pt + seed
Second Round - 2pts + seed
Sweet 16 - 4pts + seed
Elite 8 - 8pts + seed
Final Four - 16pts + seed
Championship - 32pts + seed

For example: If a 13 seed upsets a 4 in round 1 you would get 1pt + 13pts for a total of 14pts

How to pay:
We are pooling money again using Crowdtilt. If you haven't used it before just sign up and then revisit the Spitblood TCU Campaign Page to pay. If you are entering multiple brackets you will just contribute 3 times for $20.

How to play:
If you have played in this pool before you will already be in pool at cbs sports. If you haven't played before, make sure you have a cbs sports log in and then enter the pool. Here is the link for the tournament pool: http://sptbld.mayhem.cbssports.com/e?ttag=13_cbsinv
