Think the Season Predictor Contest was too hard? Looking forward to brackets next weekend? How about a little preseason-madness with a Big East Tournament bracket?

It's pretty simple. Nine games. Only prize we can offer is gloating, but I think it's well worth it.

Here are the rules: there are no rules.

The Rules

I mean, there has to be rules. The powers that be have decided to award points for each game, with each successive round increasing in points.

Round 1: 7/10 and 8/9 games- 1 point each

Round 2 (quarterfinals): 2 points each

Round 3 (semi-finals): 3 points each

Finals: 5 points. Total is 21 points.

How to Play

Can you comment? Then you can play! In your comment to this article, pick your winners of the "play-in" games, winners of the quarterfinal matchups, and then tell me who your champion is (aka Villanova over Creighton). This will tell me your winners of the semis as well. Be sure to include the loser. This is how a chalk bracket-comment would read:

"Seton Hall, Georgetown

Villanova, Creighton, Xavier, Providence

Villanova over Creighton"

That will give me all your picks. The deadline for entry is the start of the play-in games on Wednesday. Best of luck to everyone!
