Picking a bracket can be an exact science or pure and random luck. Take for example my friend Zack who won my pool last year. Zack has an incredible football mind and was an all-state offensive lineman now playing college ball.
Last season, he took about 10 minutes to fill out his bracket with me in the back of math class. In it, he had UConn winning the National Championship game along with so many other upsets, we all guaranteed he would finish last in our bracket.
Moral of the story: Nothing is guaranteed in March and things are going to continue to get crazy. With the action about ready to start, you all should be peering over your brackets one more time.
Here are five easy rules that can separate your bracket from the rest that seem to add order to the chaos of March Madness.
