Was last years winner the person who got the Villanova right? or should we tally for each round?

Round of 64 = 1 point
Round of 32 = 2 points
Sweet 16 = 3 points
Elite 8 = 4 points
Final Four = 5 points
Championship game = 6 points
Champion = 10 points

I'd support this over a winner being determined solely by the champion, but I hope it's not 6 for the title game + 10 for winning. Your suggestion isn't clear on that point.

This format only makes sense if you do points by round, IMO.

I don't like this way. It puts too much emphasis on the first round.

Also you have 7 wins possible here. Only 6 games in the tournament.

I was suggesting 6 points to be in the title game and 10 for winning it. Maybe that's much. Tilley, if he wants to use this format can tinker with the point system.

Yeah, it an award system for each round, say Arkansas makes to Sweet 16 and loses; person with Arkansas will get 3 total points (winning 64 = 1, and 32 round = 2).

Not really, you can still only get 8 points out of the first round.

Anyways, imo there should be a different way of determining the winner.

My post wasn't very clear. I meant our system of drafting teams only really works for a points by round scoring system like you posted.

I'll take Rhode Island.

I'm getting kids to bed and I'll sort out the scoring tonight. My plan was to continue the scoring from previous iterations.

Last year's standings:
drew24: 13
Trojan: 9
Drake: 9
Tilley: 9
Senator: 7
CofR: 7
Chief: 6
Dis:3

Last year's standings with a 1,2,3,4,5,6 point system.
drew24: 30
Trojan: 20
Tilley: 18
Drake: 17
Senator: 12
CofR: 11
Chief: 9
Dis:3

More that I look at it, I don't know if it really makes a difference. I think it would be pretty uncommon to win in one format and not the other. I'm fine with whatever Tilley decides.

Thanks drew24 for looking at last year's standings under the two options for scoring. I'm leaning towards increased point values as the tournament progresses.

Scoring would be as follows:
No points to teams that win the play in games.
Round of 64: 1 point per win
Round of 32: 2 points per win
Round of 16: 3 points per win
Round of 8: 4 points per win
Round of 4: 5 points per win
Round of 2: 8 points per win (Winner is National Champion)

I prefer this scoring as it give a bonus to the team the picks the National Champion, but not such a huge bonus that it automatically determines the winner.

Issues?
