Zone Zeal Pool
Hi all,

In order to steal another page from what works in sports, I have hit upon the idea of trying to generate some added excitement about the FIRST Championships by starting a Zone Zeal Pool (ala the very popular NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament pools).

Here is how it is going to work:

You make your favorite picks for the tournament.

You submit those picks to us via an Excel spreadsheet mailed to [email protected]

Prior to the tournament, as entries come in, we post information about which teams are being handicapped to go how far.

During and after the Elimination Rounds, we will post the scores and usernames of the higher scoring entries.

After the Championships, we will post the winning entry (so you can all see how that high score was obtained) and to make things interesting, I, personally, will give a $100 gift certificate from Home Depot to the winner.

More rules about who can enter and other details are included in the Excel file and below.

Good Luck.

Joe J.

  1. Choose the 16 teams from each division that will you believe will be most likely to be in the Divisional Quarter-Finals of the Elimation Tournament

  2. From the above list, choose 8 per division that you believe will most likely pass on to the Divisional Semi-Finals

  3. From the above list, choose 4 per division that you believe will most likely pass on to the Divisional Finals

  4. From the above list, choose 2 per division that you believe will most likely pass be the Divisional Champions

  5. From the above list of 4 pairs of Divisonal Champions, pick the 2 pairs that you believe will be most likely to pass on to the Grand Finals

  7. Enter X’s in the appropriate boxes on the DATA ENTRY sheet. NOTE: “ERRORS” MUST BE ZERO (0) FOR YOUR ENTRY TO BE CONSIDERED!

  8. “Save As” Replacing “YOURNAMEHERE” with your ChiefDelphi.com username

  9. E-mail the entry with the file attached to: [email protected]

  10. Entries must be received before 9:00am EDT Friday April 26, 2002 to be considered

  11. The pool is just for fun, but, Dr. Joe has decide to make things interesting by providing a $100 gift certificate from Home Depot to the person who submits the entry with the highest score.

  12. In order to be eligible for the gift from Dr. Joe, you must meet the following criteria:
    You must submit only one entry per person
    You must be a registered member of the ChiefDelphi.com Forum
    You must submit a 100-300 word response to the message titled: Zone Zeal Pool “Entry Fee”

  13. Members of the Chief Delphi team are welcome to submit entries, but will not be eligible for the gift from Dr. Joe.

  14. With the exception of the winning pool entry, no individual pool entries will be made public. Other than the winning name and winning pool entry, only the names and SCORES (as opposed to pool entries) will be published.

  15. Information about team’s scores (see team scoring below) will be made public on the ChiefDelphi.com web site

  16. Scores for individual pools will be calculated as follows:
    1 point for each correct divisional quarter-finalist
    2 points for each correct divisional semi-finalist
    4 points for each correct divisional finalist
    8 points for each correct divisional champion
    16 points for each correct grand finalist
    32 points for each correct grand champion

  17. Scores for Teams will be posted on the ChiefDelphi.com website. Teams will get points for each pool entry similar to the manner that pool entries are scored (the numbers will be normalized by the number of pool entries).
    1 point for each pool entry predicting that the team will be a divisional quarter-finalist
    2 points for each pool entry predicting that the team will be a divisional semi-finalist
    4 points for each pool entry predicting that the team will be a divisional finalist
    8 points for each pool entry predicting that the team will be a divisional champion
    16 points for each pool entry predicting that the team will be a grand finalist
    32 points for each pool entry predicting that the team will be a grand champion

  18. As usual, the decisions of the judge (Dr. Joe) is final and not necessarily fair and/or just. Sorry in advance.
