Last time I ran the contest (2015) the winner got 100+ smokes.

Look at pages 4 and 5 of this thread for the carnage: http://cigargeeks.com/community/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=32179&st...

I'm sure 2016 was just as good, and hopefully this year will be even better!!!

Thanks Mike for taking back the reins!  I've been a bit pressed for time of late and haven't been around much.  Good to see you back in the saddle.  I'll play.  looking forward to it!

Thanks for doing this! I told my brother (Penguin) I sadly only find time to jump on Geeks a handful of times a year -- and one is for the NCAA Tournament contest! Guess I've got too many cigars and feel the need to give some away every year, lol!

Right on! So far if everyone that responded to this thread fills out a bracket the winner will receive 50+ smokes! That really makes the games interesting.

Right on. If you like to live dangerously you can use the auto-fill option. ESPN will populate your bracket randomly, but weighted by your choice of seed, power ranking, etc. I actually ran through about 5 auto-fill picks just to see what it would do. I settled on one and then made some strategic changes. It only took about 3 minutes, LOL.

I used to take this a lot more seriously
