Domain investor launches March Madness bracket selection challenge with $1,000 on the line.
Brackets.com is giving away $1,000 in cash prizes during the NCAA men’s college basketball tournament, which begins on Thursday, March 18th. You can print out an official bracket and enter to win $250 – with no entry fee. The person who has the most points will win $250, the second place finisher will win $150, and the third place finisher will win $100.
Entrants who aren’t good at making college basketball picks can still win. Brackets.com is offering $500 to the person who refers the most valid users. In addition, to help build awareness, Brackets.com is offering prizes for inbound links from different websites. Higher pagerank websites are worth more points, and the leading referrer will win $250, the second place finisher will win $150, and the third place finisher will win $100.
Full contest details are available on Brackets.com. The tournament begins tomorrow, so sign up today.
Brackets.com is a recently launched venture from 260.com, a domain investment company founded by Tony Peppler.
Nice work Anthony. According to namebio that’s $56k worth of domain. 🙂 about time you put it to use :))
Elliotsblog has referred some users and he is NOW in the top 3 for referrers. So he will get some $$ as well and he doesn’t have to “win” anything.
Who does everyone have in their brackets this year to make it to the final four?? WIth so many changes through-out the Top 10, Top 25 and even the #1 seed in the nation anything is possible.. I can’t wait for the madness to begin!!! So pumped!!

So who do you have? Who is your final four?
College basketball is my favorite sport by far.
Here is my final 4:
Kansas will win it all. Have the great combo-inside/outside with Collins and Alridge.
Kentucky too young to win it all, 3 freshman starting will not keep there poise all 6 games.
Syracuse is not 100% healthy.
Duke, lives and dies by the 3 pointers. However, they are still stronger than the others so will be in final 4.
These teams will not make final 4 which many predict because of:
Ohio State-relies too much on 1 player (Evan Turner)
Villanova-has no interior defense
West Virginia-relies too much on 1 player (Butler)
Kansas St-There coach will have a melt-down
Since I am such an expert I will give you guys my words of wisdom:
Round 1 upsets:
Northern Iowa over UNLV
San Diego State over Tennessee
UTEP over Baylor
Cal over Louisville
Sienna over Purdue
Georgia Tech over Oklahoma St.
BYU over Florida
Missouri over Clemson
Richmond over St. Mary’s
Also, Baylor will be to the Elite 8. No more pointers right now, but may give a few in round 2 if I feel generous:)
Now, it is St. Patricks day, and you can call me a “drunken irishman” which I am right now, or you can trust me as the guys who has won this pool of 30 people 5 of the last 7 years:)
UTEP over Butler in round 1 (Not Baylor)
I got to stop drinking this “green beer”:)
My Villanova Wildcats (#2 seed) got quite a scare from Robert Morris today… they had to take it in to OVATime … and when it was OVA it was NOVA 73-70 ….Whewwwww !
I did not here about the Brackets.com gig until too late …but here are my final Four Picks in 2 other pools:
