2011 Building the Dam Baseball Bracket Challenge

New, 14 comments

Since it's Memorial Day and I don't have anything better to do, why not start a BTD Bracket Challenge? It seems that we have had a higher interest this year in college baseball, so hopefully a lot of people will join. Here's how it works:

  • First, pick the winners of the 16 Regionals
  • Second, pick the winners of the 8 Super Regionals
  • Thrid, pick the two teams that will compete in the CWS Championship Series
  • Finally, pick the CWS Champion

You will receive 1 point for each correctly picked Regional, 2 points for each Super Regional, 4 points for each CWS Series team, and 8 points for the champion. Standings will be updated at the end of each round. Below is a list of teams in each regional and their records. After listing the regional, I will state my pick.

In the comments section, it would be helpful for you to do it like this: Corvallis Regional-Oregon State

So, there you have it. I'm disappointed that I went all chalk after the Super Regionals, but the difference between the national seeds and everyone else seems a lot bigger this season than in previous years.

Anyway, post your picks in the comments section. They need to be in by 9:00 AM Pacific on Friday morning. Winner will get one front page post on BTD.

Good Luck!
