It’s that time again! It’s time for March Madness. 64 teams and 1 dream to take the national championship.

The one thing that comes with March Madness that everyone anticipates is the brackets to predict who is going to take it all the way, but how do you know who will win and who will lose? There are multiple superstitions to see who will be upset or who will overcome to see who the better team is.

There are many different ways to calculate the winner of each game and here are a list of some:

  1. Take two eggs, label the teams, and drop them and the one who cracks loses.
  2. Throwing darts at the paper to see who wins
  3. Just plain guessing
  4. Look who has the best record and choose the team with the best record
  5. A plain coin toss
  6. Toss pencils to stick on the ceiling and the one who falls loses
  7. Go off of the previous year’s bracket

The one thing about the brackets that are difficult are all the upsets that occur while the tournament is going on. No matter what you do, you can’t predict the future. The odds of getting a perfect bracket are 1 in 9,223,372,036,854,775,808 – or 1 in over 9 quintillion.

Even if you don’t win, which is theoretically almost never going to happen, there is always one guarantee that each contestant has: there’s always be next year for your chance to win.
