    Ok, this was fun last year so I figured we would do it again.

    I'm going to do it on ESPN.com.

    Who's your team?

    I'm still shocked that my Cards are the overall number 1.

    Anyway, sorry my Cards had to take that Big East title from you guys.

    I know absolutely nothing about college basketball, but this seemed amusing. I went through each match-up and flipped a coin to determine my pick for that match (heads = higher-ranked team, tails = lower-ranked team); be interested to see how far pure luck carries this. Go Memphis, apparently!

    Yeah. That didn't work out to well for you, did it? On the bright side, if I'm reading this thing correctly, about 15/100 of 1% are actually doing the same or worse so about 12,000 brackets are doing worse than yours, so you've got that going for you.

    In hindsight, I think flipping a coin twice and then taking the lower seed only if both coins landed tails might have been a better strategy. (Or you could use my mom's approach and only pick schools you've heard of.)

    Woot! Arizona won today. I am too lazy to fill out a bracket. That, and I don't know anything about any of the teams other than U of A.
