Here we go again. It is a little early to make your picks, but not to early to join our league. Use your team from last year or create a new one. Our League name in "Threads". Our password is "complyordie".

You can join here: Sport Illustrated Fantasy March Madness

You could win $1,000,000.

I can't log in Z. It tells me that the user ID and password don't match.

And I'm being told that the threads password is incorrect. It's frustrating this year!!

You have to create a fantasy User ID first (with a corresponding password). Then you can join the "Threads" League using the above information.

I was just told the password is incorrect also? Hmmm! We may have to create a new league and let that one die. If no one can get in, that is what I will do.

You're right Z. You have to register as an individual, then when you click on the link to join a league, it takes you to threads. I got in. Cool! (Well, I got the the page anyway, now I see what you mean about incorrect password ) I take it back, I'm not in.

I figured out the password!

complyordie was too long, so the password is actually complyordi

Its kind of silly that they will let me enter in the password complyordie, but limit me to complyordi. I remembered that I had to use complyordi last year, but thought maybe they'd changed the allowable length. I did not actually count the letters. Guess if I'd done that I would have known.

I'm shaking in my boots! LOLOL Kidding, I'm kidding! I stink at this, but have been lucky enough to win $20.00 once by guessing!

Hey dude, if you win the million dollars, each member of the team is expecting a check for at least $10,000.

I think you're in, FraudPup. But a name that was on there before is missing. I'm ready to pick my teams, hurry up Sunday!

I came in second last year behind a girl that picked teams based upon colors and mascots.

How funny! That's how my mother-in-law won football picks one year!! She like the color of their uniforms and their helmets!

Let's just call that a long shot, but I think I could handle a $10k donation to each of the other teams in the league if I pull down a cool Million!! hehe. My strategy is simple....I don't watch college basketball during the season, then I pick by name recognition. I'm a football fan, not a basketball fan (except every March )

I made my picks--unlike past years, where I read up a little on the teams, this year I went with my gut. I'll probably do better. The only problem is I picked my Horns to return to the Final 4 and that probably will not happen.

Hey, they almost let my Sooners beat them! What a comeback team we are with only 8 players left! I can see the future now, though. Just wait until those Freshman are juniors and seniors!!!

Yep! Almost!! Too bad we weren't playing horseshoes!!! I too can't wait for UT to beat OU's freshmen when they are juniors and seniors.

Z, I think it will be the other way around. We almost beat you when they are freshman, we will get you by the time they get some more experience!!!!

We did something that is very difficult--beat a good team 3 times in one season. But we did it. We beat OU 66-37, 68-63, and 66-63. The Sooners will improve and so will Texas. Bring it on Sooners; I like our chances.

At least thanks for acknowledging that we are a "good" team. Sampson has had his obstacles this year, but shows he is a "heck" of a coach to accomplish what he has this year with the players he had to work with. He is a classy guy. I think we have a winning combination with Sampson, Coale and Stoops. Hope they stay around for a long time.

Rick Barnes complimented him for coaching the game of his life. I agree. As shorthanded as they were, they almost beat a very good Texas team--a Texas team that could beat anyone at any time and lose to just about anyone at any time. I changed my bracket--I have them bowing out in the Elite 8. That is not so far fetched, but at the same time unlikely.
