March Madness is here again, time for office work across the nation to slow down sufficiently to accommodate the yearly office pool tradition that accompanies college basketball’s ultimate tournament. To make it easier for you to track your favorite teams in the tournament, I am providing a link to some of the best places from which to download a printable bracket for the tournament.
My personal favorite printout is perhaps the stylish offer from CBS Sports. This one presented by DiGiorno (does everything really have to have a sponsor these days) would make an excellent one to blow up and hang for your office pool.
ESPN also gets into the act with a simple no frills offering. If I was the sponsor, Pontiac, I would demand a better effort on the part of the ESPN, but then again, the site will get its fair share of traffic, so no harm done. ESPN offers the bracket as both a GIF and a PDF.
If you do a little more digging on their site, ESPN also offers a better version under “Tournament Challenge.” This version provides you with the dates and starting times for the games as well. Like the previous bracket, and can also print this one as a GIF or PDF.
NCAA.com, the official web site of the NCAA, which provides substantial cover of all sports collegiate, has the following version of a printable bracket.
Of interest here is the fact that NCAA.com has also developed a bracket in conjunction with Facebook.
Bettorsworld goes an extra step in the process and along with the printable bracket; they offer users some contest strategies to use.
Such is also the case with Teamranking.com, who also offers analyses and strategies to help with the selection process. Here you could just as easily find the point spread for a game as you can articles on the tournament.
Not to be left out of a good thing, USA Today also provides a no frills PDF version of the bracket.
