Most people who fill out their brackets from year to year have little quirks (teams they go for/against, seedings they like, etc.). Here are mine:
- I always pick against Michigan. That way I can cheer for my bracket, and the pain of losing is lessened. They lose to VCU this year. Coincidentally, when Michigan is in the tourney I usually have a team from their region win it all. This year it’s Kansas.
- F#ck Georgetown. In 2010, they were a 3 seed that I had going to the final four. They lost in the 1stround to Ohio (Bobcats). I have never picked them to go past the 2ndround since. This year, they lose to SDSU in the 2ndround.
- I always pick exactly one 12 seed to upset a 5 seed. Don’t ask me why. This year it’s Oregon over Oklahoma State.
- I always put Duke in my final four. They won me 250 dollars back in 2010, so I consider them a bit of a good luck charm.
What are your bracket quirks?
