I usually have a pick ’em this time around but year I am going to forego that so I can focus on the two that I already am in.
I have followed some strategies throughout my years and I have done pretty well. I have never won but hey, I still got a good amount of upsets right.
Today I will share my tips on having a great bracket. A winning one? I don’t know. But these are what I hold on to when I fill my bracket out.
That was the game-winning shot! Except the ball never went in. It was ruled a goaltend and UCLA took the lead and won, advancing to the next round.
Take a look at these two angles. Is that a goaltend? The shot looks off and there appears to be a chance that it would have missed the rim entirely. Maybe the refs think it could have grazed the rim. We’ll never know. But from these angles, it looks like it would have missed.
However, the risk is too high to be even trying to grab the ball that close to the rim. And it’s odd that the officials can’t go to replay on something like that. Still, it may not have had any chance of going in, but chancing it by reaching for the ball that close to the rim warrants a call. Not a fair call, but it was the call that had to be made.
It’s that time of the year again! The brackets are set and it’s time for you to fill them out. Can you beat me? Join my bracket pick ’em game. I will not pick Kentucky to win. But will you?
Roddy White is great on Twitter but every now and then, he tweets something that he may regret. He promised a fan that he would get him season tickets if Mercer beats Duke.
And that’s exactly what happened.
Sadly, White has decided to not honor his promise.
Upsets. 12th seeds beating 5th seeds. Four overtime games. Close finishes. My bracket went 14-2 while everyone else did worse.
What a great day! I don’t know if I have ever gone through a first day of so much drama ever watching.
Seriously, this is the best playoff system in American sports. So good. So so good!

I will reveal to you my formula for a winning bracket. Success rate for this formula is not very high. But because of my own personal bias, I believe what I am doing is right.
Here are my beliefs, philosophies and strategies to a perfect bracket. Not fool-proof, but I’m sticking with it.
