Some fans use their gut in filling out a bracket. Others use analytics, a blindfold, their dog or absolutely no method at all. For those who have never emerged victorious in the office pool, maybe it's time for a new approach, one that involves no basketball or numbers.
This year, pick winners based upon your favorite politicians, movie stars, musicians, athletes, businessmen, inventors and historical figures. Complete your bracket according to famous alumni of every 2016 NCAA Tournament team. Instead of picking Baylor to reach Houston, you are actually picking former Baylor undergrad Willie Nelson. Or if you like the ocean, maybe select Hawaii alum and Titanic discoverer Bob Ballard.
We've broken down the bracket by region so you can find out who represents Cinderella squads Stephen F. Austin and Middle Tennessee State faster.
Not every individual listed below graduated from the school.
