A calcutta auction is the most exciting way to enjoy and participate in March Madness. For those uninitiated the idea is fairly simple. You and your buddies get together and auction off each of the 64 teams in the tournament to the highest bidder. Each team wins a percentage of the overall prizepool according to how many wins they have in the tournament. The overall prizepool is determined by the total amout bid during the auction.
Start a league today, invite your friends and find out why this is the best way to enjoy the college basketball season.
I originally started this site as a way to help a group of my friends manage our own calcutta auction for the 2014 NCAA tournament. I thought I would continue to develop the site as a more robust system that anyone could use to manage a calcutta auction of any type. While I still think this could potentially happen in the future, it is not in my immediate plans. I started a seperate site (fantasycruncher.com) that has taken off and consumes all of my time at this point.
The good news is, my group of friends still uses this site to manage our NCAA Mens Basketball auction each year, so the software will function for anyone else who wants to make their own private group. The teams will be updated after selection Sunday, and the scores will be input after each game. Their is no cost for this, but there are also no warranties.
If you have more questions, I will try to respond to them if you email me through my FantasyCruncher email address. david (at) fantasycruncher.com
