From Tony Bieill: Selection secrets
I have been asked each March by my editor to submit a bracket to The News-Gazette one day before the committee releases the official version, and there have been occasions during that period when I believed – wholeheartedly and without a hint of false modesty – that I had done a better job than the committee.

While exiting the NCAA building after the first day of our process, my headache growing deeper with each step after hours of soul-searching and pondering, I was hit by the realization that the committee's job is tougher than mine for at least one reason: It has so much more information to consider.
