Welcome to the 15thAnnual Elmer Tremain Memorial Pool!
Congratulations to Ryan Aziminia!

WELCOME BACK! It's 2015 which means it's time for our 15th Annual Pool! Every year I try to have more participants than the previous year (195 entries in 2014!) It's going to be tough, but I'd love to top that this year. So tell your family, tell your friends, tell your co-workers.

We again have some exciting Prize Breakouts and a LOSER/BOOBIE Prize. See Prize information for more details!

68 Teams::  This is the fifth year for the "First Four" - So everyone should be used to it. WE DO NOT PICK these "first round" games. But if you need a refresher of how we handle the 68 team field, Click here.


My Uncle Elmer loved college basketball. The Kansas Jayhawks in particular (but if you knew him or any of his kids you already knew that), but he also rooted for the Tigers (whenever they weren't playing KU that is!). For you youngsters, there was once this thing called The BIG 8, then the BIG 12. And the KU/MU rivalry always took center-stage! Someone could always expect a phone call following those games: if KU won, Uncle Elmer would always call my dad to rub it in, and Dad would always call Uncle Elmer when the Tigers pulled out a win over the Chickenhawks. I remember the fun and camaraderie come tournament time too: entering NCAA pools, making side wagers, the bravado, the trash-talking... In my opinion, in all of sports, the best and most exciting time of the year!!

So back in 2001 I began an online NCAA bracket and once again enjoyed the fun that goes along with it, the bragging, the trash talking, the hopes of coming out on top... But more than that, it was a way to stay close with family and friends...getting family from literally all over the country to participate in the Tournament Pool. And it was a lot of fun. Mike, Dale and Judy all commented then on how much Uncle Elmer would have enjoyed this. It was at that point that I decided to rename this annual pool in his memory.

Thank you for participating in the 15th Annual Elmer Tremain Memorial Pool.
Good Luck and Have Fun!
