Let's succumb to this March Madness
« on: March 11, 2015, 09:38:32 AM »

March is a great time to showcase how little you think you know about NCAA basketball and what better way to highlight than by participating in the Great Randomville March Madness Basketball Tournament of Destruction, Domination, Acumen, Blind Luck, Cool Uniforms and/or Mascots, Humiliation and Stuff tm

FAQ      

1. But Foolsgold, I don’t know anything about college basketball: Doesn’t matter.  I’ve been running the office pool for 10 years now and 7 of those years were won by people with either no interest in the sport or they only followed their alma mater.
2. Will this take much of my time: It shouldn’t.  As little as 10 minutes to fill out the bracket and a couple minutes a day checking results. 
3. What is the prize for winning:  I dunno.  Bragging rights?  I guess I could set up some Paypal thing where everyone kicks in a couple of bucks to go to the winner, but I’d only do that if y’all want that kind of thing.
4. Who can play: Ideally, all or most of you.  This is the sort of thing that benefits from a larger pool of people.
5. Any tips: a 12 seed always seems to beat a 5 seed.  A 1 or 2 seed wins it all most of the time.  A 16 seed never wins anything.
6. Strategies, what about strategy: There are several ways to go about this.  You could exhaustively research each team comparing stats and trends.  You could pick by which team has the cooler mascot.  You could pick teams alphabetically.  You could pick by your favorite color.  Doesn’t matter.
7. When do I have to have the bracket filled out: By March 17th before the tip-off of the first game.

Maybe I am an idiot and did something wrong?

I will participate. Internet access permitting, I may even cheerlead a bit.

I have the suspicion I may look favourably on Gonzaga.
