Breaking Down The Madness Of March
First off I did not watch nearly enough college hoops this year. However I am going to try and make some sense of this. While filling out your bracket the first thing to do is pick teams you enjoy watching that way win or lose you get to watch teams you like play for you. If you really want to win don't be afraid to take the favorites. Everything I'm about to tell you is since the tourney expanded to 64 teams. At least one #1 seed has made the "Final 4" in all but 2 tournaments 1980 and 2006. In 2009 all 12 of the 1, 2 and 3 seeds made the "Sweet 16". A 16 seed has NEVER beat a 1 and only 4 out of 104 #2 seeds have ever lost to a 15. #5 seeds seem to have the best chance of yielding a upset falling to the 12 seed 35 out of 104 times.
All of that being said there will be a "Cinderella" that will shock the world at least for a round or 2. Good luck to all of you in your brackets and if you'd like to fill out a free bracket while testing your skill against the WGNA staff and listeners try this one. http://wgna.com/march-bracket-buster/#jsx-content-provider
