After the first round

It's a tie. Bracket number 1, in which I tried to pick the NCAA tournament victors, and bracket number 2, in which I just went with the higher seeds all the way through, are tied, both with 24 out of 32 possible correct picks. There are 107 people in the pool. Both of my entries are in the top half, tied with about 30 others. The next round should separate the men from the boys.

So, the bracket that took me about 30 seconds to complete is doing just as well the other, and better than more than half of the experts that wasted the greater part of an afternoon researching and analyzing their picks.
