you guys should all send me your money now, since i'm going to crush everyone with my brilliant picks. so bow before my superior hoops knowledge and admit defeat before i completely destroy and humiliate you all.























(i just need you to ignore last year's performance, which was unquestionably the worst bracket i've ever filled out.)

Dang I had them winning the whole thing! thinking, thinking, thinking.....

Hah, I bet I am the only one in the country with this champion. I'm going to be highly disappointed if JB figures out a way to win!

I had my most success ever with single name over modified-- eg Florida over Ohio State... State over direction... Catholic stuff over state... direction over city...

Need some help, doing an alternate bracket on CBSSports using these rules (basically)

Memphis/St. Louis-- they're both cities... alphabetical? or religious? (Saint?)

Same with Florida/Virginia-- order they came into the union? Alphabetical?



My rules--- State over Modified, traditional modification "state" over other "commonwealth", over region, over city, God over other--> Catholic over other God-- eg Marquette of BYU... and St. Mary's over Purdue...

I went with Catholic icon. But I may switch--BBQ sounds like a good idea. In more ways than one. Jurgen is hungry. went with state order into the union-- has UCons beating Kontucky early.

Are the Uconn Huskies named the Huskies due to a clever play on the Uconn vs Yukon sounding name.


And GO CYCLONES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thus far, my bracket has the same faults as hodag's sucky bracket, and is quite sucky indeed.
