Made my bracket! Did almost no analysis and based all my picks on how I felt after seeing some of the teams play 1-3 times. In the match ups where I've never seen the team play, I picked the cooler mascot. I hope I win.

I wanted to pick Delaware but not against MSU.

 

I considered it, too.

In one of my pools, the worst player gets their $$$ back, they had a bad week as they see it.

Excellent analysis. In all fairness though, I feel that the tournament is so hard predict. This is the one event where I think gut instinct, intuition, and some film watching are more useful than spending hours looking over stats (BNick would approve I think).

I think a lot of it, especially in the bigger pools just comes down to luck -- how the ball bounces. That's not to say there's no skill but there's so many games that could go either way.

You're right. That's what makes that sketch so great.

I pick whatever team has the highest bWAR

There is baseball, and occasionally there are other things of note
