2010 NCAA March Madness Bracket Generator

CLICK HERE TO GO STRAIGHT TO THE AUTO-GENERATOR!

Wow, this year caught up with me fast!  No changes this year for my yearly NCAA Auto-Picker, but I wanted to let you know what’s coming up in for next year:

  • Choose your own Final Four!
    • I’ve been told that the key to a winning bracket is the ability to choose your own final four, and let a system like mine handle the lesser games.  I’m going to build this into my page very soon!

What is it?

It’s a webpage that auto-generates a bracket for the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament (also known as “March Madness”).

Why did you make this?

Picking a good bracket is easy! For each game, pick the team with the lowest number (the lower seed, or the “better team”) as the winner. In later rounds, you might have equally-seeded teams up against one another (two #1 seeds might meet in the Final Four, for example).
