Busted: SI's mixed history of calling the NCAA bracket and picking champions

Here at SI, we take pride in every piece of content we produce. From the biggest magazine features to the smallest sidebars, we strive for quality, truth and accuracy. And when predicting the future, that last principle doesn't always work out like we planned. From calling the NCAA bracket to picking champions in the preseason, we've fallen short more than we'd like to admit. Way more. If you're wondering just how bad our win percentage is, take a look at the infographics below:
