Thankfully there’s an auto fill function.

If you want to further maintain your anonymity in the pool, in addition to changing your name in the settings, you can also hide your email address from other pool members. Here's how I did the email address part : 

1) Click on the drop down "My Pools" and select "Bravado War Room" 
2) Click on the Settings symbol (to the right of the "Bravado War Room" pool title)
3) Select "Personal info" from the menu that appears
4) Click the checkmark for "Don't show my email address to the other pool members" 
5) Click "Save"

With one weekend of Madness in the books and more to come this Monday (I mean I wasn't ready to get back on the phones either) it's been a wild ride so far. Mostly downhill with a few accidents to my wallet and mental health, but this is the War Room after all. As your  General, wanted to give a quick leaderboard update for you savages:
1. Christopher Fago
2. Beastmode Willy
3. Derrick Banas (aka This Guy's Bananas)However, Beastmode Willy is leading the odds for Best Possible Score with 163 followed by...
2. Ryan Moore: 162
3. Chris Carsich: 161With big money on the line, be sure to have two monitors up and lots of college basketball small talk on dem demos today!

As we get further and further into March Madness and I compound my losses with more ill-informed bets, there are still some War Room members with the hopes of winning the March Madness Bracket and collecting up to $400 worth of prizes.Your current leaders are:


Thomas "The Tank Engine" Coleman - 85 points Jonathan "Bad Meaning" Gooding - 82 points Chris "Pahked My" Carsich - 81 points

Still a bunch of brackets with a chance to win though. T-Tank is praying for Houston to pull out a miracle victory, but Gonzaga and Baylor could bring other brackets to victory.(Post in the WR Bracket thread with updated scores)

@ZebraStripe I just noticed that your email address is also displayed in the brackets. There's a way to hide it though. Here are the steps : 
1) Click on the drop down "My Pools" and select "Bravado War Room" 
2) Click on the Settings symbol (to the right of the "Bravado War Room" pool title)
3) Select "Personal info" from the menu that appears
4) Click the checkmark for "Don't show my email address to the other pool members" 
5) Click "Save"

Welp. There goes my not-so-cinderella YOLO bracket with Bama. Where's my automatic mulligan? I thought this would be the type of community that would support such yolo shenanigans. 😤

It’s come down to the last game. If Baylor wins, Jonathan Gooding will turn into Jonathan Amazing and collect $400 worth of prizes. If Gonzaga keeps their undefeated magic going behind Timme’s facial hair and Sugg(s) Life, Chris “I’m gonna use this $400 towards a new” Carcich will come away victorious.  Hearts and wallets are on the line tonight!
