NCAA Tournament Manifesto: How To Win Your Pool


One billion dollars.


With those three words, Dr. Evil could have very easily been describing the estimated amount of money exchanged annually on NCAA Tournament office pools. And that figure is multiplying like wet gremlins.


The NCAA Tournament Manifesto will cut off a piece of the billion dollar pie and feed it to you. All you need to do is eat it. If you want to beat the father-in-law, boss, or ex-girlfriend who somehow manages to finish higher than you in the bracket standings year after year, keep on reading.


Chaos (n): A state of extreme confusion and disorder.


Sixty-five teams. Four regions. Sixty-five potential champions. There are over eighteen quintillion possibilities for every bracket. That’s “18” and eighteen zero’s.


Yet as chaotic as the NCAA Tournament appears to be, there is order in the disorder. So before you can predict the winners, you must understand the reason certain teams are configured for successful tournament runs. Essentially, you just have to know the seven Secrets for NCAA Tournament Success.


Secrets For NCAA Tournament Success:


  1. Talent - NBA potential is no joke.

  2. Post Defense - The bigger, the better.

  3. Sharp Shooting - Simple math: three is better than two.

  4. Experience - Who has nerves of steel?

  5. Star Power - Winning is the All-American way.

  6. Guard Play - Little guys point the way.

  7. X-Factor - Fear of the unknown.


The March Manifesto is the secret to filling out your NCAA Tournament bracket.
