Illinois Loyalty Bracket Pool

I'm 100% positive we've had one of these in the past. If there's not one this year, we have about 24 hours to get one created. What site have we used in the past? ESPN? Yahoo? I need to fill out as many brackets as possible with Illinois beating Loyola (best team in the state), OK State (Underwood revenge game), Houston (Kelvin Sampson revenge game), Baylor (payback for earlier this year), and Gonzaga (for our elusive NCAA championship).

I’m running a pool with friends and seriously considered making it a requirement to pick Illinois as the champion. Anyone who doesn’t is gonna have a massive advantage, game theory-wise... but I still won’t do it!

FWIW I think we usually do Fibonacci scoring for the Loyalty pool, not sure if that’s doable on ESPN though?

I nominate danielb927 as the Official Loyalty Mathematician with responsibility for creating an algorithm that converts ESPN scores to the appropriate progression.

the most important pool is the extended family pool - we've used Fibo for at least a decade (=1/1/2/3/5/8/13 - we count the play-ins - one year I lost by 1 due to a playin)

That's sacrilege because it means you didn't have us there. Disappointing.
Yeah...it really sucks when there are 3 OSUs in the Tourney....cowboys, Buckeyes and beavers...2 play each other Sunday in 2d round.
Pulling for beavers to be left standing in sweet 16 and after watching Liberty challenge cowboys, I think it's a real possibility we will meet beavers on 27th.

I think the Beavers want to meet Oral Roberts.

So, how are the rest of you doing? If my few remaining picks all pan out, I might have a chance at finishing above the 9,000,000th place.
