March Madness

It's NCAA Basketball bracket time, folks!

Here are J's picks:

Here are A's picks:

Who would've thought that both J and A would pick Florida to win it all?!

And here are Allie's picks:

Although Allie's handwriting looks suspiciously similar to A's handwriting, Allie had a system for her choices. Schools with veterinary programs ranked in the top 25 by U.S. News and World Report automatically win their matchups.  Higher ranked veterinary programs beat lower ranked or unranked programs.

If neither team in a matchup is ranked, the winner is based on mascot.  Mascots that Allie likes such as dogs and people win, whereas mascots she doesn't like such as birds lose.

And for anyone who hasn't completed their bracket yet, here's some food for thought - using statistical modeling to predict the tournament winner.

Go Gators!
