    Not that hard because they have the seed range in there.

    I've often been accused of filling out my bracket blindfolded...

    I was going to say that this thing is unfairly titled towards Kansas, because I ended up picking the team with the highest ratings for my champion, but seeing how different your results are... maybe not?

    I weighted my picks by experience and defense, with an eye toward the seeding/high to low major status.

    Cool tool.

    I had Iowa State in the Elite 8 losing to Xavier. Final Four of Xavier, Vandy, Michigan State and Kansas. Kansas over MSU in the final. Only real upset in early round is Montana over Wisky.
