What should I do with my bracket, which is no longer worth the paper it was printed on?
After two round of full tournament action, only one thing is clear: Your bracket is absolutely destroyed.
Whether it was Harvard of Florida Gulf Coast beating heavy favorites New Mexico and Georgetown, or Wichita State taking down #1 seed Gonzaga in the round of 32, something definitely happened to toss some red ink all over your picks.
Between Florida Gulf Coast, Oregon, and La Salle, we have 3 double-digit seeds in the Sweet Sixteen.
Will any of them pull off another upset and advance further? Don't ask me. I personally filled out 5 different brackets, and I'm in the 43rd percentile in my BEST one. For those of you keeping score at home, that means 57% of people made better picks than my BEST bracket out of five.
So what do I do now, with my brackets that are completely shot?
Well, there's always the office basketball hoop method:
If that's not your style, then there are a bunch of different paper airplane models that you can create, and see which ones fly the furthest. This one is my personal favorite:
If you can't afford the mini hoop, but want to toss your bracket, make sure it's properly biodegradable and toss it in here:
If you're one of the 17 people in the US who still have a decent looking bracket, go ahead and brag... as long as you can show proof. Because quite frankly, I don't believe you.
For the rest of us, whose brackets look like a red sharpie convention, which teams are the ones that really screwed up your bracket? Did you have New Mexico in the final 4, like I did in a couple brackets? Did you have Gonzaga winning it all? Who are the teams that really mucked it up for you?
