2013 DBB March Madness bracket challenge and open thread

Chris Chambers

Join the DBB bracket challenge on Yahoo! and then talk about the first three rounds of games (and future Pistons) here.

If you're interested in taking on fellow DBB'ers in a Yahoo! Tourney Pick 'Em league, here's where you can do that. The password to join is the big man we never thought would be a Piston a year ago, "drummond". Again, the link is here. (Seriously, click here to join!)

Below are some other links you may find useful before you leave all your March Madness Muse-ings in the comments:

• If you need help filling out your bracket, don't look now here - it's Kyle Singler and Kim English filling out their homer brackets in an incredibly boring segment with Ryan Field.

• SBN, however, has regional breakdowns and 'expert' picks that might actually be helpful.

• Personally, I'm a fan of the wicked sma't people who give Davidson great odds to pull off the upset against Marquette.

Pomeroy college basketball rankings.

• Predictions based on mascot fights.

• NCAA Tourney time is a good time to get familiar with potential draft picks. You can follow SBN's draft coverage here, and Jepyr was kind enough to get us started here in the FanPosts.

• Here's a GIF of an otter dunking:
