Each March, I enter several March Madness Bracket Challenges in hopes of winning at least one of them.  Most of the time I come up short and never come close to winning.  Last year, I had ZERO teams in the Final Four.  It was a lackluster year to say the least.  I over analyze and normally don't go with my gut.  Instead, I look at stats and hope the statistics will pan out.

This year, I've entered 4 bracket challenges (1 is a non-paying group).  I hope to win one of them, but I always have one bracket that I use as my top bracket (a.k.a. my Sheet of Integrity).  Since the tourney has started I can release my picks to the world.  Below are my picks for the 2012 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament:
