In no particular order, here are some ways people choose their bracket(s):
- Based on statistics
- Teams wearing their favorite colors
- Flipping a coin
- Throwing darts
- Teams with their favorite mascot
- Which egg doesn’t break (is this a thing?)
My brackets are typically done for fun; no money on the line. This keeps me from rooting for Duke, North Carolina, Michigan (when they get in), Kentucky, Syracuse, and Kansas.
