Can I Get A Witness ?

I hope you have enjoyed the tournament so far, even though you (probably) didn’t win.canigetawitness
 
I am looking for feedback for next year’s pool – I have a poll on the site for you to take.
 
We have had requests in the past to change the point system for the pool. 
 
Current System : Standard Scoring
1 point for 1st round correct picks
2 points for 2nd round correct picks
4 points for 3rd round correct picks (Sweet Sixteen)
8 points for 4th round correct picks (Elite Eight)
16 points for 5th round correct picks (Final Four)
32 points for 6th round correct picks (Championship)
 
Click here for the player scenario report (pre final four) using this system.
 
Pros : Tried and true system; Easy to understand.
Cons : Boring!
 
Suggested System : Seed # x Round #
If you had picked Maryland, a 10 seed, over California, a 7 seed, in the 1st round you would get 10 points (10 seed x 1st round), rather than the 1 point you got.
If you had picked Arizona, a 12 seed, over a 7 seed in the 1st round you would get 24 points (12 seed x 2nd round), rather than the 2 points you got.
Your Michigan State pick in round 3 would have gotten you 6 points (2 seed x 3rd round)
 
Click here for the player scenario report (pre final four) using this system.
 
Pros : Gives incentive to pick some upset picks.
Cons : A little confusing; Gives too much emphasis on early round upset picks – your California pick would be worth the same as you Michigan State Championship pick. 
 
Suggested System : Seed # x Points/Round
This would be a combination of the first two options.
You would take the seed number and multiply it by the points per round.
So your Maryland pick would still get you 10 points (10 seed x 1 point) and the Arizona pick still get you 24 (12 seed x 2 points) but the Michigan Satae pick would now get you 8 points (2nd seed x 4 points)

Pros : Gives incentive to pick something other than chalk picks; Still rewards picking the eventual champion.
Cons : A little more confusing than standard scoring, but not too much.
 
So if you would please take a moment and participate in the poll on the site.
(Kevin Moore need not vote – I know your answer!)
Feel free to leave any comments you might have on the posting as well.
