It's 2024 and that means we're kicking off our TWENTY-FOURTH Annual Tremains Memorial NCAA Pool! The bracket-busting upsets, the Cinderella stories, it's exactly what we need. So let's make a big push, tell your family, tell your friends, tell your co-workers!
We. Are. Back.


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 24th Annual Tremains Memorial NCAA Pool.
Good Luck and Have Fun!
