ATLANTA, March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Each spring, college basketball enthusiasts are drawn to the TV, brackets in hand, hoping to catch every upset, blow-out and buzzer-beater that March Madness has to offer. While these avid sports fans are counting down the days until the first tip-off, some Americans are dreading the impending weeks they will spend watching and discussing college basketball.

In an effort to both prevent sports un-enthusiasts from succumbing to their own "madness" this March, and also teach even the biggest college hoops fan something new,, the award-winning, unbiased online source for thousands of topics, is sharing the below information on How March Madness Works.

1. The tournament itself has many names. Most refer to March Madness as "the Tournament," but announcers or fans in basements and bars across the country might also call it "the Big Dance" or "the Road to the Final Four."

2. You don't need a green thumb to keep up. Avid gardeners might get confused over all the conversations about pods and seeds. The 64 teams are divided into four regions. Each region has teams that are assigned a "seed" number 1 through 16, with the best team in the region awarded the 1 seed. Pods refer to the method of grouping seeds. One pod includes seeds 1, 16, 8, and 9. A second pod includes seeds 4, 13, 5, 12. The third pod includes seeds 2, 15, 7, 10. The fourth pod includes seeds 3, 14, 6, and 11.

3. Even a non-sports fan can win the pool. Filling out your own bracket and entering an office or friend-created pool is a great way for non-sports fans to get in on the "hoop-la," earn some bragging rights and maybe even make a few bucks.  While there isn't an exact science to guarantee a win, the following are additional things to consider if you want a leg up on your competition.

•A No. 16 seed has never beaten a No. 1 (yet)!
•Half of the No. 3 seeds are typically eliminated in the second round.
•There's a good chance that one No. 1 seed will lose in the third round.
•You could probably expect at least one or two No. 1 seeds to make it through the fourth round.

More information about the science of bracketology can be found here.

4. Your significant other is not obsessed with Disney Princesses. The lower seeds represent potential "Cinderellas." A Cinderella team unexpectedly achieves success by beating a higher-seeded team. Unfortunately, Cinderella teams' chariots typically turn back into a pumpkin before getting to the Final Four.

5. Remember and repeat: Sweet, Elite and Final Four. In the first two days of the tournament, the field of 64 is pared to 32, and then to 16 -- the Sweet 16, that is. During the second week, the field is trimmed from 16 to the Elite 8 and eventually the Final four. Sweet, elite and final: use them, embrace them. Your friends will be impressed.

Hi Kelli,

I tried to call but couldn't get thru.  I wanted to say that I too look at the color of the uniforms.  :O) But I realized that by looking at the colors of the uniforms it's who looks best and most the time I'm right, they win.  I'm not a gardner either so I don't get the seeds.  So it has to be because when they are wearing the uniforms they look, confident and they win.  Sounds simple to me, so I'm with you the color! Smile

Good pick on Purdue, Kelli! Glad it's in a KLOVE city! And....since I'm an alum, I can tell you that you'd love the team name, too: Boilermakers!
2/28/2010 9:23:48 AM
Maureen United States
I'm with you, Kelli...the whole March Madness frenzy escapes me. But....I'm glad you chose Purdue (and glad West Lafayette is a KLOVE city), because I'm an alum and I know you'd love their colors (Old Gold & Black)and you'd also love the team name: Boilermakers!

It was a lot easier to just do than to hear Scott trying to explain it to you.  I think he was making it too difficult.  For me... I just look at one match up (game) at a time, just pick one team to win and keep picking one winner for each pair up until you get to the end.  And I do pick them by fav schools, places, names, etc!
Glad I could join y'all!

Kelli you hurtin us girls its basketball baby just know that West Virginia gonna win cause their coach is a man of God and with his faith and mine WVA will be the champions.  Sister you making us look bad, you are proof of men superiority.

I didn't have a problem entering.  If you read the post, it says "The password is March."

By the way, I found your new station in Charlotte/Greensboro NC on 94.1 by accident yesterday.  I'm glad you moved in!  I'm from Lenoir, NC, and it's quite a few miles away, so you have a great signal.  I listened to you up in Michigan when I was up there, and was glad to hear you put in a tower down our way!

Thanks for everything you and you station does!

Everyone knows deep down inside Duke is gonna win.

NOT THAT I WANT THEM TO, but it's only logical.

Of course, everyone's logic is different, now isn't it Kelli?

Will there be another bracket created because as already commented the brackets filled up very quickly and I had gone to do the brackets right after it was announced the radio and couldn't get in because of the link and not being able to enter the private league, not even being asked for the password at that time? Wouldn't it be possible to have more than 1 KLOVE bracket as there are so many listeners and then have the winner be picked from the pool of winners from each bracket?
