The Secret Behind the Perfect Bracket.

It’s March Madness basketball time!  One of my favorite times of year.

Season records.
Conference tournament wins.
Strength of schedule.
Total combine points of losses.
On-the-road vs at-home wins.

There’s a lot of scientific data and thought that goes into choosing which top 66 teams get a chance to play in the Biggest College Tournament of all times.  A lot of basketball fans agonize over that data fantasizing about creating the perfect bracket.

Me, on the other hand…I fill out my brackets based on a different set of criteria. A much more FUN way of selection.   🙂

Here’s a little behind-the-scenes look at the carefully-thought-out details of how I go about selecting my bracket:

Liberty – because they are a Christian school.

Michigan State  – because I like Cassius Winston’s name.

Northern Kentucky – because my friend’s husband played basketball there.

Michigan – because I love yellow and navy together.

Oregon – because their fight song is the same as my high school fight song.

UC Irvine – because I saw their men’s volleyball team play and they were awesome!

North Carolina – because Roy Williams seems like a nice guy.

Wofford – because I really like to say that word.

Purdue – because Carsen Edwards is my favorite NCAA player with his short little bowed legs and adorable construction-boot-like tennis shoes.

Tennessee – because I love the beautiful scenery in Tennessee.  I also love Grant Williams.  And anyone named Admiral deserves a championship!

So there you have it.  The Deanna Day Young high-level of Bracketology.

I’ve got Tennessee bringing home the nets in the official office bracket pool but, let me just say, I wouldn’t be sad if the Black and Gold Boilers bust my bracket and claim the title!

Who’s your NCAA team of choice this Madness Season?
