Ohio State may be a six seed, but that doesn't mean dozens of you won't have the Buckeyes in the Final Four this season. And what better place to show off your bravery than the 2013 Eleven Warriors NCAA Tournament Challenge?

We're giving away a signed Evan Turner basketball to the winning bracket and it's free to enter. It may not be a billion dollars, but it's the next-best thing.

So, head over to the group page and enter your the password (gobucks) to get started.

That signature looks like a giant bird(?) with legs eating the #21.  And it looks like someone took that ball our for some hoops on the blacktop. 

But it's sure going to look good on my mantle!

This is actually the ball Turner used for his game-winning shot against Michigan in the Big Ten Tournament.

I mean, this is the ball Evan Turner recorded his first Ohio State triple-double with.

I mean, yeah. I don't know.

It's all good, whoever wins it gets to make up their own story. 

I'd tell everyone that Evan Turner used it to fight crime on the streets of Philly, then one day I saved him from a bunch of angry Flyers fans. So he signed it and gave it to me.

Shouldn't it be '14 tourney?  Looks like genre are two '13 brackets.

Would seem to make more sense. Thanks.

Sparty to win it all. They are finally healthy.

I'd say at least a final four the way they looked tonight...

Knarcisi's picture

All 5 guys on ESPN just picked Sparty.

Which goes to show that they have no chance.

I thought the same thing. I had Sparty winning it all until I watched every ESPN analyst pick them. They are now screwed.

I'm picking that there won't be as many upsets this year - but then again what do I know

Actually no reason to pick upsets since there is no weight for seeds.

Not as much as you think, but definitely more than last year at this time :-P

Go Bucks!

Is it bad that I have a Sparty/Wisconsin title game??

Only for your chances of winning this ball.

Every year I look at the teams and games and say to my self , there is no way this team is going to lose to that team.... Then Saturday comes around and I sit in my closet lights off ass naked, in the fetal position rocking back and fourth, saying Why ? how? I am so dumb ! this year will not be that year.....I hope.

Go Bucks!

I was all set to pick Sparty all the way. Then all 4 ESPN bracketologists picked them, and I have to find a new champion.

I accidentally picked Iowa State to win it all

Every year I convince myself each game ohio state plays is winnable and pick them all the way. 

This is year I saw their second round game would be against Syracuse who plays zone. This year the bucks can't hit from the outside. I'm sorry please prove me wrong. 

GO BUCKS

I'm in. Wooooo. Hope we win a few games.  

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

I'm going to have a real issue with that last rule.

I really hate brackets. If I pick my team to win it all, they won't win b/c I picked it. If I don't pick my team to win, they lose. I know bad juju isn't real, but....I still believe it is.

Evan Turner takes his time when signing his autographs, most don't.  If you have one you know its his.

I'll throw in an Archie Griffin autographed football as well that is just as legit as that basketball.

I think he's trying to say that the refs call was inaccurate.

I think I did pretty well but I just had to take a chance somewhere, so I took Milwaukee to beat Villanova. They are good but I think Villanova could go cold against a decent defense and Milwaukee might catch them off guard. Won't matter much because I will have them losing the next round if I am wrong and I don't see Villanova going that far either way.

 

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

I also have Villanova losing, but not until the round of 32 to UConn. I used the same logic, I just don't see Nova going very deep. Of course, that prolly means they're on their way to the Final Four.

I'm hoping it's like golf, and the lowest score wins.

Not sure I can follow the last rule, but I will give it some effort.

Are our member names already registered for the group?  If not, some nutlicker took my member name for this and that sucks.

Go Bucks!

It goes off of your ESPN account name, not your 11W account name.

Yeah, I know.  Nutlicker on ESPN.

HAHAHAHAH I thought you were putting them down by calling them "some nutlicker" Well played sir, well played.
