No, there's no cost to enter, it's completely free thanks to our friends at CBS Sports who will be hosting the pool for us.

What's the CBS ID?
If you click the link in the first post it should take you to the CBS sign in page, if you have a CBS account already just sign in and then it takes you to the pool, if you don't then sign up at CBS first and then it takes you to the pool. It should then ask you for the pool password which is "cayman"

I don't know that there is a specific ID for the pool but I'll go look

Ok yeah this was more complicated that I thought it would be.

Once you have your CBS ID, then you need to go here:

http://www.cbssports.com/fantasy/universal/

Then from the drop downs choose:

Sport: Mayhem

League Abbreviation: cayclub

League Password: cayman


Then you'll get a second page asking you for the password again.

League Password: cayman

You'll get asked to confirm, click the OK button

And you are IN!! Whew what a pain... anyway I've attached a screen capture to show what I'm talking about.

Your instructions don't work. Sending you a email on what you get if you are already in the CBS brackets.

Augie,

They do work and I got your email. You've logged into CBS which is the first step, the next thing you need to do is get logged into the Pool itself, and to do that please follow the instructions in this post:

http://www.planet-9.com/news-items/43494-win-prizes-planet-9-ncaa-basketball-pool.html#post443694

I sent you a reply in email as well. Let me know how you make out!

Folks, it is a little confusing. I didn't have an account on the CBS web site. However, I was able to get this to work by doing the following:

1. Follow the initial link: - CBSSports.com
Fill in the info:
Sport: Mayhem
League Abbreviation: cayclub
League Password: cayman
Click "Ok"

2. On the login page, select the link: "Register Now"

3. Create a new account, which will also sign you in

4. Follow the link again and it should take you to the dropdowns, fill in the same details and it will take you to the backet.

Hmmm...I wonder who you picked to win it all, Ken?

I can tell you Becky will not be submitting her picks this year! :)

That reminds me, please pass my condolences on to Becky that her team isn't even IN the tournament this year, and that oh btw, while UNC has 2000 all time wins, KU now has 2002 (and hopefully 6 more this year!) KU also owns the longest consecutive appearances in the NCAA tournament streak (which would have been even longer had the NCAA not intervened in 89) :hilarious:

Yeah I think you know who I picked to win it all, but only because if they do then you know Becky has a shirt coming her way... :kiss:

Come on everyone.... Get in on this pool & win some cool Planet 9 stuff. The only issue I had was that my Planet 9 user name was not available on the CBS site. Everything else was pretty easy to set up. Wouldn't it be really interesting if one of the sponsors could donate a grand prize? That would drive up participation.

Good luck to all...........

You hit on an interesting point and I ran with that idea and asked our sponsors if they'd like to donate something for the pool and I've already heard back from several that they are donating, I'll try to put together a list ASAP and get it published here.

Wow.... We should all thank Ken for securing these great donations. If he decides to use all of these prizes for the pool, we should have at least 10 winners!!

So what are you waiting for but be sure to get your picks in by tomorrow. History has it that a 12 will beat a 5 & not all #1 seeds will make it to the final 4.

Good luck
