Unfortunately, Brian has informed me that he won't be able to continue writing for us in the near future, so I'm a little caught off guard for basketball content. Not that huge a deal given the state of Nebrasketball, but it does leave me in a quandary as to what to do for a March Madness Tournament Pick 'Em type game.

I would like to see us doing something, honestly, if someone else can step up to run it. Our SB Nation sites have a campaign going on with Yahoo!, so it'd be cool if someone in our community (if y'all want to do this) would set up a bracket selection game.

If not, several other SB Nation sites are running Pick 'Em games and y'all can sign up with those. You'll need a printable NCAA tourney bracket to look at, right?

I generally do a Pick'em bracket if for no other reason than to give other people a reason to feel better about themselves 'cause I generally finish right around last. I have not a clue as to who to pick, who has the biggest chances at upsets, or what the hell is going on. I pick my tourney bracket by one of these methods:

A) random guessing

B) Fate: throwing darts, flipping coins, looking at chicken guts, or let the cat pick 'em.

C) Find someone else who looks like an expert and echo everything they say and do, pretending I'm an expert as well. You'd be surprised at how well this works - maybe not in bracket success - but in making me look like I know what I'm talking about.
