Ahh, yes, March Madness. You know what that means: time to print out a bracket and grab a pencil—or, if you're a TRUE man, a pen—and get to work on filling out those glorious sheets that make their rounds to sports fans of America just once a year.

For some people, filling out a bracket is just for fun; for others, filling out a bracket is a researched, thought-out, rigorously daunting task that will convey their college basketball knowledge to their fellow sports fans.

There are many possible bracket outcomes. In fact, the odds to pick a perfect bracket are about nine-quintilian to one. To this day, there is no evidence that anyone has ever filled out a perfect bracket.

Some people considered "experts" however, can consistently come up with brackets that land upwards of the 95th percentile of the nation. This is done by compiling vast amounts of information and weighing the possibility for each team to outperform their counterparts. It takes time, research, and an open mind in order to piece together a great bracket.

After spending many hours coming up with the best possible outcome for MY bracket, I'm ready to reveal the most likely Elite 8 for this year's version of March Madness.
