March Means....Madness!

March 18, 2011 - Kim Collette
March Madness is here! This has to be one of the best times of the year to be a sports fan. And I can't get enough of it!

Each year since I was in high school, I've filled out my "bracket" of winners in each round of the Big Dance. I entered the the tournament pools and usually by the end of day 1 my bracket was "busted." All the upsets, buzzer beaters and winning teams did not go my way.

So, I employed a new way to attack the March Madness challenges.....fill out more than one bracket! I typically will do a "sheet of integrity" (just like Greeny and Goldberg from Mike & Mike in the Morning). My so called sheet of integrity is just that. I "attempt" to choose the winners based on my knowledge of college hoops. Sheet #2 is called my "sheet of heart." Yes it sounds a bit girly and maybe it is. I pick the winners on sheet 2 by choosing the teams I like or wouldn't mind seeing win. Last year this method worked and I won the bracket challenge I was in.

This year I took on a third bracket. Since my method worked decently last year. My third bracket this year was a Hybrid of the Sheet of Integrity and the Sheet of Heart.

So here goes.....(even though I am a day late posting this)

Sheet of Integrity National Champion: Kansas Sheet of Heart National Champion: Duke Sheet of Hybrid picks National Champion: Notre Dame

I don't expect to win again this year. Especially since I heard that out of 5 million plus brackets on ESPN only 45,000 were still perfect after the first four games yesterday. But, I would be okay in losing as long as THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY is the National Champion!
