Well hello everyone!
I am proud to announce that for the third year in a row, Aaron Torres Sports will be running an NCAA Tournament Bracket Challenge. What’s even better is that this year we’ve got a sponsor, thanks to the good folks over at Retro College Cuts!
What is Retro College Cuts?
Well, Retro College Cuts is the only company you’ll find that is dedicated exclusively to creating vintage college basketball apparel. Along with their classically designed t-shirts, Retro College Cuts is also the only company in the industry with retro replica game shorts as well. UNLV. Kentucky. Duke. You name it, they’ve pretty much got you covered, and if you’re not familiar with their gear, then I fully expect you to be by the end of this March. It’s going to be a big month for them, and a big month for us here at Aaron Torres Sports.
So with that said, let’s talk a little about this NCAA Tournament Challenge.
First off, you can go ahead and get signed up by clicking here. As always, the challenge is completely, 100 percent free. No sign-up fees, no money down… like everything else here at Aaron Torres Sports, it’s all about having a little bit of fun.
As for the pool itself, it will be run like any other pool you’ve ever entered: You’ll be rewarded points for each game you select correctly, with more points being awarded the deeper we get into the tournament. The most points at the end of the tournament wins the pool.
A few notes: When you do fill out your bracket, please make sure and select a final point total for this year’s championship game. That will serve as a tiebreaker, so make sure you go ahead and fill that out. Also of note, is that all submissions have to be in by Thursday at noon before the first games. Got that?
Now, let’s get to the good stuff…. Yup, that’s right, the prizes. This year Retro College Cuts is offering discounts to their online store, meaning that I’m able to give away more fun prizes with this bracket challenge than I ever have before.
If you’re wondering, here is the prize structure:
1) Person with the most total points after Round 1 gets a $20 gift code on the purchase on a pair of shorts.
2) Person that calls the picks the biggest upset in Round 1 gets a $20 gift code on the purchase of a pair of shorts.
3) After Round 3 the person with the most points gets a free t-shirt with the purchase of a pair of shorts ($38 value)
4) After Round 4 (the Elite Eight), the person with the most teams correct in their bracket gets a free t-shirt with the purchase of a pair of shorts ($38 value)
5) The winner gets 3 free t-shirts with the purchase of a pair of shorts ($114 value)
Also as a thank you for signing up with the Aaron Torres Sports Tourney Challenge, Retro College Cuts is also offering a $10 off discount off any team’s gear that is in this year’s NCAA Tournament. Click here, and use the code ‘Dancin’ to get your discount.
By my count, that’s over $250 in free gear, just for entering this pool. It honestly doesn’t get much better than that! And also because I’m feeling nice, the top three finishers will also receive a free copy of my book ‘The Unlikeliest Champion,’ which is a gift that you really can’t put a price on!
So with that, go ahead and click here to sign-up.
As always, if you’ve got any questions, you’re welcome to reach out by e-mail at ATorres00@gmail.com, in the comments section below or on Twitter @Aaron_Torres. Feel free to drop me a line there, and I’ll get back to you as quickly as I can. Also, be sure to listen to the Aaron Torres Sports podcast later this week, where I will have more fun giveaways for you all to look forward to.
Anyway, I want to thank you all again for signing up for the Aaron Torres Sports NCAA Tournament Bracket Challenge, and I look forward to having fun and competing against you all March long.
Oh, and one more thing: Don’t make me look too bad this month? Ok?
