After the first day of games, my brackets are doing OK but not great with my “wisdom of the crowds” methodology. (See here for an explanation of this experiment.)
The crowd did make 3 mistakes however: #7 Texas Tech lost to #10 BC, #7 Indiana beat #10 Gonzaga, and #11 VCU beat #6 Duke. So they missed one upset and picked two that didn’t pan out.
We’ll have to see what happens today to find out if I even have a fighting chance in the pool I am in. Right now I am slightly better than average in the pool, but it is still very early.
