    I'm just going to make an easy slide presentation with my brackets.  This mostly goes with top seeds as I didn't get into the whole science of bracketology.  This also comes with much deliberation and most guesses on teams I know very little to nothing about.  There are no predictions on winners.  I also have another article written where all the NCAA officials were selected.  After filling out brackets, I will assign all the officials accordingly and see how accurate I am with that as well.

    Again, my brackets are far from perfect or even in conformity with Selection Committee rules.  It is just my bracket that I made up with some thought.  So it can be easily criticized.  A little help for my readers—I correctly predicted Duke winning the Championship last year.  While I am not making any predictions until I release my bracket, I will be curious to see how close I come to the actual bracket.
