For college basketball fans, Christmas falls in March. Seeing the bracket revealed and printing ten out to practice is much more enjoyable than opening up any Christmas present. As people fill out their bracket, they will be faced with many questions: How many first round upsets do I pick? Will a 12 seed beat a 5 seed again? How far can I have a Cinderella go?
