NCAA Basketball: Penn State at Michigan Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

After a brief hiatus, the Black Shoe Diaries bracket pool is back with a vengeance! Yahoo has once again partnered with SBNation for this year’s tournament bracket challenge, and we’re extending the opportunity to you, the people!

Enter the BSD Bracket Challenge (password is saveustonycarr) for your chance at the amazing prizes below:

  • A year’s supply of bragging rights.
  • A shoutout from BSD on your choice of tweet, Facebook post, or frontage fanshot.

On top of the invaluable prizes above, Yahoo! is handing out 50 thousand dollars to the best bracket. When creating your bracket, don’t forget to check off the box to automatically add it to Yahoo!’s own 50 thousand dollar bracket challenge.

To make things interesting, we’ve altered the traditional scoring system with a seed bonus multiplier. You’ll get a point for every correct pick, and a multiplier of 1 x seed difference. Picked a 16-seed to take down a 1-seed? You get a 15 point bonus! Picked straight chalk? You get the correct picks, most likely!

Show Aaron, Tim, Rowen, Chris, and I how much better you are at basketball than us by joining our pool TODAY!*

*You actually have until March 16th at 11:59 am but do it now so you don’t forget.
