2011 Owl's Nest Final Four Contest



Back by popular demand, it's the Seventh Annual Owl's Nest Final Four Contest!

Contest format voting ended with a 50-50 split, so we will opt for a FREE format this season.


Brackets have been announced and here is the sign-up info for this year's contest:

Password: goowls


*Player picks must be submitted by 11:00 AM EST, March 17, 2011.


Contest Scoring

To make things more interesting this year, the "Add Seed" scoring option will apply to this year's format. This means that the seed of the winning team is added to the correct pick total in order to reward players who select upset teams. IE: If the 12th seed wins and your weight is 1, then 13 points would be credited for the Win.

Point weighting for each win is as follows:

1st Round - One point
2nd Round - Two points
3rd Round - Four points
Semis - 16 points
Finals - 32 points

In the event of a tie, the final game's total score will serve as the tiebreaker.


Former FAU staff member OWLUMNI won last year's contest, and will likely be looking for a repeat performance.


Good luck to everyone!!!

Just a reminder….. If you go to options and then personal options you can change username from your real name to your Owls Nest username.

By doing this, it makes it much easier for everyone to look at the standings. If Joe Smith signs up but everyone knows him on here as fau123 no one is going to have any clue who Joe Smith is… See my point?

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!
