I'll admit that having New Mezzico in the Final 4 was a poor choice. But Davidson almost won!

oregon was a legitimate choice

National champs & Davidson in the Sweet 16 in my bullshiat bracket. 
Bracket of Integrity is still in second.

I lost a $100 to a woman that picked teams based upon where she would rather vacation. Put all the 1-3 seeds into round of 32, but otherwise won with Travelocity strategery.

Only incorrect picks were wichita state and harvard. Had the other teams losing saturday. Doing alright.

Oregon should have been an 8 seed at the lowest.

Pittsburgh over Gonzaga and Oklahoma State over Louisville seems to have been bad selections...

Texas, if you're listening: We do Tangerine, we do Coral, but, I'm sorry, we do NOT do Orange!

If my bracket is busted, it's because of my iron-clad "Always pick Mizzou to win it all" rule.

My bracket picking method this year.

Round 1 D12 = Value closest to seed = pick
Round 2 D6 = Value closet to seed = pick
Round 3 D4 = Value closet to seed = pick
Round 4+... Coin Flip

Saved so much time and research.

I was really hoping for the small schools to do well this tourny. So much for having UNLV & New Mexico in the final four...

A decent professional sports gambler wouldn't bet on all 16 games involving 32 teams (assuming that's the case with this study).

I posted a photo of my busted bracket to Usenet once. it had nothing to do with any sport though.
 
2013-03-22 11:11:30 AM
Of those, 53 were professional sports gamblers, 34 were soccer fans that didn't gamble, and 78 knew little about soccer and had never gambled.

In fact, the two players who performed the best, correctly guessing seven out of the 16 scores, had never been fans of the game.


Larger pool size, more randomization, greater likelihood of having correct choices. Shocking exposé.

I lost UNLV and New Mexico. I had new Mexico winning the next game, but thats. I'm still in pretty good shape after day 1. Today could destroy me though.

Wrong. In a mascot deathmatch, there's no way a wolf would be beaten by a color. I have a Mascot Thunderdome bracket & I've thought about these things.

Yeah, a cowboy would have destroyed a duck and a tiger probably would have defeated a ram...

Oregon went 4-1 against teams ranked in the Top 25. They were ranked in the top 10 when they were healthy... Won the PAC -12 tournament because they got back to healthy.

12th seed? Bias or not, that was just horrible seeding.

I'd take an entire Crimson Tide or a Green Wave over a singular animal or even a herd.

So basically any team with Adidas uniforms will win?

Exactly. I have two birds in the championship because they are modern-day dinosaurs built of feathers & evil and could probably take down any one of those mascots.

You speak for my bracket as well

Anyone who claims they have the time/interest to know enough about all 64 teams in any given tournament is either a liar or a pathetic loser.

and even if they do - shiat happens and their expertise means nothing.

//Keep your eye on Jabronlius Gaffney, the back-up point guard from MTSU. He's a difference maker.

So far I have lost only three games and I haven't watched a basketball game in ten years.

But my strategy was a little more sophisticated. I picked UNM because that is where I live. Then I looked at Kenpom who made a fool out of me with Pitt but basically I went with what he said. Picked 'Nova though so that will be another loss. I got the entire Midwest right and I don't even know who most of those teams are, lol.

Fun Fact:

The only and only bracket my wife has ever done was based solely on how she felt about the mascot, team nickname, and their uniforms. She did zero actual research on the teams, watched zero games, and KILLED everyone she was up against. Second place couldn't have won if she'd had no team reach the final four.

I like how they used soccer for the study.  Of course flailing around and occasionally tripping over yourself into a goal for a riveting 1-0 final is going to have a large amount of random chance.

My all-Catholic mostly-Jesuit A New Pope to-count-for-something Final Four bracket has already been busted.

Way to go, Georgetown.

My brackets look like they mouthed off to Chris Brown while on a date.
