The Bracket Battle Begins!
Well, March Madness officially begins tomorrow (sorry, I don't count yesterday's game in which Morehead State won the right to be sacrificed to number one Louisville). Anyway, it's time for the players in the Wildcat's Lair's Bracket Battle 2009 to show their brackets.
Below, you see headshots of all six competitors, including me. To see a player's bracket (i.e. to find out what was going through their head), just click on his/her head. This year, Frank and I are joined by Uncle Kerouac, my dog Page, the baddest bad boy of stuffed animals Ted E. Bear and the combined forces of my wife (a.k.a. the Dragon Queen) and her collection of dragons.
Another change for this year... I've handed over the scoring duties to the NCAA website. I've created a group on the website and entered all of our brackets. Below, you'll see the website's scoring system. You'll notice it heavily rewards those picking teams that make it into the Final Four. Another interesting twist is that this scoring system rewards successful picks for underdogs.
We've all taken a rather different approach to building our brackets, as the past few episodes have shown. See what you think... and pick your own winner. Whose brackets do you think will win it all this year?
