You vs. Me

Challenge me in's Hoops Hysteria contest.

You vs. Me

We did this last year and it was pretty successful, so this year I'm giving you another chance to make me look stupid.

I've created a pair of contests for blog readers in's Hoops Hysteria contest. The first is a standard full-bracket contest. The second is a round-by-round contest, which is a bit different from the usual but should also be a lot of fun. In other words, you make your picks after each round instead of all at the start.

If you do really well, you can win prizes: they range from a $500 gift card to $100,000 if you get the whole thing perfect.

You'll also be able to compare brackets with me and Daily News writers Dick Jerardi, Mike Kern and Bob Cooney.

(No, I can't win the prizes. But that's as it should be.)

You can also click here for a printable bracket in .PDF form.

I will make my picks some time later tonight; I'm editing the homepage this evening so I don't have time for it right now.

But I will be back when game times are announced.
