View Full Version : How Can I Keep Track of This NCAA March Madness Pool?

03-18-2008, 12:30 AM
In our pool, each player selects one #1 seed, one #2 seed, etc. all the way through #16 instead of filling out a traditional bracket. Each time your team wins, you get points equal to the team's seed. So a win by a #12 = 12 points, and a win by a #1=1 point. Additionally, you get bonus points added to each successful pick as follows:

1st round - no bonus points
Rnd of 32 - 2 bonus points per win
Sweet 16 - 4 bonus points per win
Elite 8 - 4 bonus points per win
Final 4 - 5 bonus points per win
Championship Game - 10 bonus points per win

(I don't make the rules, I just try to score the thing each year!)

My problem is, no online tracker or software program seems to be able to handle this system. I try each year to do something in a spreadsheet, but it is very labor intensive, as we have about 40 players.

Any suggestions?
