March Madness is upon us, and for many college basketball fans it’s the most “joyous time of the year”. Who needs Christmas when you have teams vying for a national championship and bragging rights?
There are those people who swear by using statistics to pick their brackets, others base it on mascots, and then there’s the “hot or not” brackets which are purely based on superficial aspects. But personally, I’m more of a statistical person. No matter what your strategy, when it comes to picking brackets, it’s not always an easy thing to do. But many companies are now jumping on the bracket bandwagon with promises of million and billion dollar winnings! Warren Buffet and Quicken Loans have teamed up for a $1 Billion Bracket Challenge at Yahoo!. If you correctly pick every single game in the tournament then the billion dollar prize could be yours.
But you’d probably have a better chance of being struck by lightening, three times.
Clutchettes, which teams are you keeping an eye on? What methods do you use to pick your brackets?
