It's March Madness once again and I wanted to have a little fun with the tournament this time around so I set up a C&L Bracket on CBS Sports.

It's for fun and for free. Get your picks in on time because we aren't controlling the software. I did one last year with about 30 people and it worked really well so I wanted to open it up to C&L readers.


Max brackets per user: 1

Picks are due by noon on Thursday of the first round. No exceptions for late picks! Don't wait until the last minute when the site is super-busy - we're not responsible for any technical difficulties.

First prize is a Blu-Ray disc player.

Second prize is an IPod Shuffle.

Third prize is a $25 ITunes gift card.

It's open to anyone that wants to join. The more the merrier. After you are in, here are the scoring rules. Good luck. I'm rooting for UCLA and Syracuse. David Neiwert and I are both playing, but we can't win a prize, Sorry David. We'll give them to whoever is below us if that happens.

Will there will any upsets in the first round this year?
