Everyone wants a free t-shirt. When I was in high school I don’t think I ever paid for a single t-shirt. I had an assortment of basketball t-shirts, band t-shirts, and other shirts that were free giveaways.
Well, that is what we are doing as enticement to join our bracket group. SB Nation has partnered with Yahoo to be our official group manager and we have a group available at Hammer & Rails Staff and Readers.
There is more, too. We have some great shirts available in our GameDay Depot shop including the Jon Octeus "Baptizing the Masses" shirt and the Seth Morales "Holy Toledo" shirt. This year we can even have a prize! the winner of our bracket group can select one of our custom GameDay Depot shirts. because we have to have rules and everything here, the official rules for the contest can be found here.
So join us. Jump in and show us you’re smarter. Have faith in Painter by picking Purdue for the Final Four or be a Painter hater and follow the narrative that we’re losing in the first round again.
I will fill out a bracket here within the group and I am betting some of the other staff members will. Compete against us and rub our noses in it when we are wrong on this year’s 12 over 5 upset.
