OK Folks, I think I might have a bracket pool for you to enter and make your picks. Click HERE to enter. You must click where it says "Click Here to start making your picks" button, enter your name and email, then make your picks. This is not the best looking bracket, but it's all I could find at a decent price. Game opens at 4:00 PM Central Time and closes 3/19 at 11:00 AM CT. There is no fee for entering, and currently no prizes for winning, yet. It looks like I have to download and sort scores for the leader board - so be patient with that please. My blank bracket being used is below for you to download/print so you're prepared. I miss the real thing but this is all I have to offer to help with our loss. Here's hoping everyone gets healthy so we aren't without sports long. SPREAD THE WORD - LET'S HAVE SOME FUN!!! Virtual tourney starts 3/17 for the play-in games, then 1st round 3/19 at 11:15 CT. All times listed on the bracket are ET.

VIRTUAL TOURNEY STARTS 3/17 - Download your blank bracket HERE

PLEASE NOTE - My projections are based on at-large chances, so only conference leaders from 1-bid conferences are not placed in a First Four game.  Until a team wins the conference tournament, they are not officially a lock and can be placed in a First Four game or even out for multi-bid conferences.

Subscribe to my Podcast - hoping to have 2-3 per week as we get closer to the tourney. Older episodes available - click the In The News link to the left.

DISCLAIMER: From Wikipedia - Bracketology is the process of predicting the field of college basketball participants in the NCAA Basketball Tournament, named as such because it is commonly used to fill in tournament brackets for the postseason. It incorporates some method of predicting what the NCAA Selection Committee will use as its NET in order to determine at-large (non-conference winning) teams to complete the field of 68 teams, and, to seed the field by ranking all teams from first through sixty-eighth. Bracketology also encompasses the process of predicting the winners of each of the brackets. In recent years the concept of Bracketology has been applied to areas outside of basketball..

The part above that is in bold - this is what I do. If you choose to use my picks to try and win your office pool, then it's your own fault for doing so. I stink when it comes to doing that and make no secret about it. Madness is Madness, it rules, and no one gets them all right.

These projections are based on how I think the committee will make their selections, not how I would want to make them, if the season ended TODAY.  If you have any questions or comments about these predictions, if you find any errors, or if you just want to talk hoops feel free to email me.  Please note this is for entertainment purposes only. Yes, W.A.G. stands for Wild Ass Guess.  Thanks and enjoy.
