Bracketology: my picks

So I filled out 5 brackets, not 14! I have several methods for selecting my teams and here’s how it goes:

1. The automatic picks – all the higher ranked teams are auto selected. This bracket is called Meg Wings It.

Here is the final four: Kansas, Oregon, UNC and Virginia with Oregon winning it all.

2. The selections of my heart – the teams I’m rooting for like my hometown 3: Villanova, Temple and St. Joe’s. This bracket is Meg Pens a Win.

My final four: Villanova, Baylor, UNC, Michigan St. with Villanova winning it all.

3. & 4. The scientific brackets – I do my homework, carefully analyze possible upsets, listen to the experts and decide. These are Meg Authors a Win and Meg Writes a Win, respectively.

Two sets of final four:

Kansas, Oregon, UNC, Michigan St. With Michigan St. Winning the final

Kansas, Oklahoma, UNC, Michigan St. With UNC winning the final.

5. A fun bracket! Thanks to Deb of once upon a hot flash for this suggestion: choose the team based on their location and which place you’d rather live! Called it Meg Goes With D.

Fun final four: Colorado, Oregon, USC, Utah and Oregon takes the win!

I’ve entered these five into three bracket challenges so if you want to check them out, I’m in The Capitol One Visa, NCAA March Madness 2016 and the ESPN Sports center challenges!

  1. You’re so funny! I know squat about this… but you’ve got a whole system! Even though I don’t really pay much attention to the games themselves, your post is still so much fun to read. And your tv/sound setup is great! I want ours wall-mounted but John hasn’t gotten to that yet… probably time for a kick in the ass! πŸ™‚

    1. So far so good, too! 3 of the 5 are perfect right now! Yeah the sound bar was a great idea! Harry actually built it. He does wood working for fun and he’s an electrical engineer so he wired all the speaker components too. Tell John to get busy! πŸ˜ƒ

  2. Meg, you sound like you are into the Madness as much if not more than I. It’s nice to “shoot” hoops over here on your site. When needed I have always used vacation days to be off from work the first two days of the Tourney. (I even have a couple of former co-workers who today continued their now 15-year tradition of annually checking in with me to talk about who we like to win it all!

  3. I don’t follow college hoops, so I do something similar to #5. Do I know anyone who went to the school? Were they nice or horrible? This is why I will never pick Michigan State to win anything – my (ex)best friend from high school who went out with my boyfriend the day after I went with him to prom went there! haha!
    I won the office pool last year, so there must be something to my karma based method! πŸ™‚
