We are NCAA.com bracket specialists. Ask us anything about March Madness history or picking your bracket.
We are data reporters from NCAA.com, focused (for the time being) on NCAA tournament history and brackets.
We’ve spent the past few months researching and writing stories on the history of the NCAA tournament, statistics on how current and past bracket players have picked their brackets, and tips for picking your bracket. You can find all of them at our Bracket Beat hub page.
Last night, we also launched our Madness Matchup Tool. The tool is powered by data from every NCAA tournament game played (not including the First Four or play-in games, for seed purposes) since the field expanded to 64 teams in 1985. Fun fact of the day: Through the end of the 2016 tournament, there have been 2,016 such games.
In case you didn’t know, the 2017 NCAA tournament bracket was released yesterday afternoon.
Ask us anything about 2017’s bracket or any other piece of NCAA tournament history, stats or trivia.
And when you’re looking for a place to put all of this knowledge to use, feel free (and encouraged) to join our Bracket Challenge Game, the only bracket game where you can watch every NCAA tournament game live right from your bracket.
Note: We are NOT the selection committee. Trust us, we had absolutely no say in the bracket.
EDIT: This has been fantastic, but we're signing off now. Good luck with your brackets. If you do really well, we get all the credit, but if you don't you're not allowed to blame us. Those are the rules.
