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