Welcome to the 19thAnnual Tremains Memorial NCAA Pool!
Congrats to all our winners!

It's 2019 and we are ready to kick off another fantastic tournament! So lets get the 19th Annual Tremains Memorial NCAA Pool started! We had 195 entries last year, so we have our work cut out for us to get back over 200 entries... so tell your family, tell your friends, tell your co-workers!

We again have some exciting Prize Breakouts and a LOSER/BOOBIE Prize. See complete details under the Bracketology 101 section!


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 since my dad was a huge MU fan, 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 to once again enjoy the fun, 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 from all over the country. 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. Since then we've lost other loved ones: my dad, Richard, in 2012, Marlene Bussard (Tremain) and Dale Tremain, both to cancer in 2016. Many of those that participate year after year are friends or family. Thank you for keeping their memories alive.

"Let there be songs to fill the air."

And as always. . .

Thank you for participating in the 19th Annual Tremains Memorial NCAA Pool.
Good Luck and Have Fun!

2019 TremainTourney Results

WOW! UNBELIVABLE! What an ending! We've never had a finish like this in 19 years. James Kalthoff and Richard Fulks tied with 160 pts. In the tie-breakers they both had 135 total points, pick percentage of 73% and 14 teams in the Sweet 16. They tied on all the tie-breakers! So the first place prize of $925 will be split between the two of them. The next two players will finish in second and third place.

Thanks to everyone for playing.

So here are our winners. Congrats to each of them:

1st Place: $925 will be split between James Kalthoff & Richard Fulks
2nd Place: $370 goes to Brad Shimmens
3rd Place: $185 goes to Chelsea Dodd

In addition, our Last Place Boobie Prize "winner" is Susan Traynor, who gets her $10 entry fee back.

Thanks to everyone that participated this year. I hope you enjoyed it!
