WELCOME BACK! Lucky or unlucky, we're back for our 13th year in 2013! It's that time of year again - our annual Tremain Tourney Pool! Each and every year we continue to grow and grow, and I always strive to have more participants than the previous year (180 entries in 2012)! 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 again this year! This is the third year for the "First Four" 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
or any of
knew that), but
he also rooted for the Tigers (whenever they weren't playing
KU that is!).
The KU/MU rivalry always took center-stage! Someone could always expect to get a phone call following those games: if KU won, Uncle Elmer would always call my dad to rub it in, and my 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,
side wagers, bragging, trash talking, everything that goes hand in hand with it... In my opinion, in all of sports, it's the
best, most unpredictable 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...
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 whole lot of fun. Mike, Dale and Judy all commented
then on how much their father would have enjoyed this. It was at that
point that I decided to rename this annual pool in his memory.
you for participating in the 13th Annual Elmer Tremain Memorial Pool.
Good Luck and Have Fun!
