    Bracket Generator

    The last couple of years some friends and I have had some fun betting with this thing that I think was on ESPN. I can't find it this year. Does anyone know what I'm talking about or where it is? It would basically go game by game and pick a random winner based upon seeds and how likely a particular result. For instance, it would pick 1 seeds a higher proportion of the time than any other, but there was still a chance it would pick a 16. Honestly, huddling around a pc and watching it do everyones picks was the most fun.

    Ok, Mike, heres yours. -click - Aw crap a 13 seed in the elite eight? Damn it.
    Laughter from everyone else.

    We did another one starting with the sweet 16 last year too.


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    Dang it nobody knows what I'm talking about? Speak up or I'll have to just fill out another dozen pool sheets to make up for my disappointment!

    Re: Bracket Generator

    I don't know about this. I just ran the simulation and I ended up with Texas, Oklahoma state, syracuse and ST. Mary's in the final four with Syracuse beating OK state in the finals...


    Seems a bit fishy to me.

    I think that's the point - put a few bucks down with some buddies, run the brackets, and may the luckiest man win.

    Re: Bracket Generator

    Haha it simulated #15 Morgan St upsetting #2 W. Virginia and then have them continue on to the elite 8. I dont think that will come true.


    Hooray for Metaphors!
