Well, are you satisfied with your bracket? Or is it brackets? Are you a person of principle, someone who lives by a single set of picks … or do you prefer to live your life as a charlatan, just submitting two dozen different entries and living in the multiverse?
Hey: I love it either way. You’re here, and so is the NCAA Tournament. It’s the best time of the year on the sports calendar. And as always, I’ve got my annual stats-and-goodies post for you to peruse through.
Below, I’ve cobbled together a mini mountain of facts, stats, trends, scoops, did-you-knows and more that will either help you win your pool or destroy your weekend. Either way, it’ll be a blast.
In addition to my own research, all additional info is provided by CBS Sports’ research team, the NCAA, KenPom.com, ESPN Stats & Info, Elias Sports, Sports Reference and BartTorvik.com. I love putting this thing together each year. Dive in and pick your favorites.
