Tourney Tips for a Bracket That Won’t Bust
The best time of the sports year is upon us -- the "big dance" is here.
Let's face it: Filling out a bracket is a crapshoot. Upsets are inevitable, and you never know which team will get hot at what time.
With all of that being said, I'm still going to offer a few of my own hair-brained tips for a bracket that won't bust.
These teams are talented and can pull upsets, especially in the second round and beyond.
Do a little research and you'll see how prevalent this is. Last year was the first time since 2007 that a 12-seed didn't pull off an upset.
Never have more than two 1-seeds in the Final Four. The average Final Four features 1.8 1-seeds.
Pick a 1-seed to win it all. Since 1985, top seeds have won 19 of 31 (61%) titles.
Pick Michigan State to advance at least to the Elite 8. Why? Tom Izzo. Need I say more?
...just start picking by mascot.
