Poll Vault: Have you filled out a bracket for the NCAA men's tourney?

  • Southern Mississippi's Angelo Johnson sits on the bench during the last seconds of a 70-64 loss to Kansas State Thursday in the NCAA men's tournament. If you're like Michelle Holdway and picked the Golden Eagles to advance, then you've already got a blemish on your bracket.

OK, now that the legal disclosure is out of the way, I'll reveal that, yes, I've filled out a couple of NCAA men's tournament brackets.

 

My bracket tends to mirror my election ballot in that anybody I pick is bound to lose.

Really, though, it's impossible to select all the winners. According to a DePaul University news release, Professor Jeff Bergen puts the odds of picking a perfect bracket at less than one in 9.2 quintillion. You can watch him do the math here.

Still, hope springs eternal. Even President Barack Obama fills out a bracket. This year he's picking North Carolina to win it all.

Who's your pick? What teams do you have in your Final Four?
