tl;dr: click links to join our bracket league
It's that time of year again, where boasts are made, dreams are crushed, and beer is drunk. Some basketball is even played. Now is the time to get your game on again. Since I was lazy and waited until the last minute, we're using the same CBS Sports system from last year, even though some people suggested other places were better. On the plus side, if you participated last year, your registration info should still be good, if you're one of the lucky few who can remember or still have emails saying what your username and password are, or at least enough to get your password reset.
That's great jqubed, but how do I play?
I'm glad you asked! Click your way over to http://ebwoot.mayhem.cbssports.com/e?referrer=MKTG_BM_INVITE
Our password is 'ebw' (no quotes). Register, if necessary, and be sure to join in the fun. Remember, you don't need to know anything about or care for college basketball, and you likely still will do as well or better than people who actually put effort into their picks. Just be sure to make your picks and submit them before Noon EDT on Thursday, March 19.
UPDATE: It appears invitations are needed. You can PM me for one, or try going to the http://www.cbssports.com/fantasy and on the right side of the page click the link where it says "Trying to join a league and haven't received an invite via email? Click here." In the dropdown box, select 'Mayhem' (NOT 'Basketball').

IF YOU TRY TO ENTER YOUR PICKS AFTER 11:59 PM ET on WEDNESDAY, YOU RUN THE RISK OF GETTING SHUT OUT.
The first day of NCAA March Madness is the busiest day of the year at CBSSports.com. Starting Thursday morning, millions of folks sign on to finalize their bracket picks before the morning deadline. The high volume of traffic may make it difficult for you to enter your picks.
Don't wait until Thursday, ensure your bracket is entered.
THERE ARE GOING TO BE PEOPLE WHO GET SHUT OUT.
DON'T BE ONE OF THEM!
Don't let the members of your bracket group get shut out, REMIND THEM NOW
Remember, there are no prizes* but the satisfaction of a job well done, and the satisfaction of watching people you don't know post rude things about you on the internet, while pretending to congratulate you.
*Players may be eligible for prizes from the general CBS Sports prizes. There are no prizes for winning our group, though.
