We have an annual tradition in the Mincey clan. Basketball. Actually, football and baseball and hockey. But basketball watching rules in the spring with the NCAA Basketball Tournament.
Part of the seasonal fun is picking teams. I’m good at picking college basketball teams that lose. If I made my picks public, you could get rich by picking the other team. How does the Mincey clan track the NCAA Basketball Tournament.
The same way we track the tournament at work. We use a Mac.
Run Your Own Office Pool
There are three basic ways to track teams during the NCAA tournament. Watch the games. Wait until you go to work and someone tells you who won (or lost). Or, start your own office pool.
The Mincey family uses OfficePool, and Mac and PC app that automates the NCAA Men’s or Women’s March Madness College Basketball Pool (NIT is thrown in, too).
Setup up OfficePool with customized forms so family members, neighbors, friends, or co-workers can fill out their brackets.
Here’s what it looks like.
It’s simple. Buckets to the left. Bracket details to the right. OfficePool even keeps score.
Also included are the NIT, and the basic Sweet 16 brackets. There’s no need to setup a spreadsheet or pull out a double-truck bracket listing from the newspaper.
OfficePool runs on your Mac (and PC) and keeps track of all the details from every team and every participant in the pool.
Refreshments cost extra.
