Selection Sunday is this Sunday, 3/11/2018. Always a day with great anticipation, and a chance for you to compare your bracketizing with the all-knowing NCAA Selection Committee.
You have a good handle on whose going to be in the tournament, and approximately their seed number. However you have no idea where they will play. It seems they want to put the most teams, the longest way, from their fan base. Knowing all of this doesn’t help in your selection process.
I’m an avid fan, and can never win a pool, or fair well on the CBS Brackets. Last year I spent a good week going over all the stats, rivalries, past history, and still came in 580,000 place.
I quizzed a lot of people I know, about their strategy. My granddaughter, Maggie, beat me last year, by picking the team’s nicknames. she liked. Also beating me, were people who picked by colors, some by the seed #(that’s no fun), alphabetically, and one picked by the colleges, that were closest to their playoff city.
After all this analysis, I think it’s best if you select winners after the game is over.
