Join the 18 Stripes Bracket Challenge

Since everyone needs one more bracket pool to join, we are happy to fill the void. Join the 18 Stripes bracket challenge group on ESPN to compete against the Irish sports writers, and your fellow readers. Even if you haven’t watched non-ND basketball game all season and choose based on the cooler mascot, you’re encouraged to submit an entry. The link to the group is here. The group is public, and each entry is allowed one bracket. You can also go to the ESPN Bracket Challenge page and search “18Stripes”. Feel free to name your entry after your posting handle so we know where to direct any and all trash talk. The entry deadline isĀ 12:15 on Thursday when the Irish tip off to open the Madness. There won’t be any prizes, just bragging rights for up to 365 days over your fellow Irish fans.

Here’s the link one more time, and go Irish!

I suspect this will be the bracket group that on average predicts Michigan to go the least far. Think we could get ESPN to measure that for us?

27 entrants so far. We might have to consider a prize for most creative bracket name. TFRdidnothingwrong is an early leader.


I never get in on the silly names for stuff. I’m boring ol’ use-my-sn-for-my-bracket


38 entries, four picked ND to win the whole thing, one pick ND to lose to Princeton.
