With all of the new metrics involved and a strong bubble, I had low expectations. I ended up better than I figured I would. 66 of 68 IN, 62 exact or within 1 seed line. I'll take it. Below is MY picks and how they did. Thanks to everyone for your support this year, and please note, if you choose to use my picks for your office pool, wager with them at your own risk.

My "Expert" picks here. - Biggest seeding issues 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.

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 Ratings Percentage Index 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.
