It's March Madness time again, and that means college basketball fans everywhere have begun filling out their brackets. With first-round play beginning tomorrow, people are looking for any method to pick the big bracket-busting upsets.
We took an unusual approach. All that was needed was a coin, a little free time and of course some good flipping skills.
For every single bracket matchup, it was simply heads for the first team and tails for the second. Winner moves on, realistic judgments aside. 64 flips later, we had a Final Four. Here's how it panned out:
- The only No. 1 seed to survive the first round was Ohio State.
- Exactly half of the higher seeds moved on to the round of 32, including No. 15 UC Santa Barbara.
- The final four was an unexpected wave of Cinderella stories. No. 7 Washington moved on in the East Region. No. 7 Texas A&M moved on in the Southwest. No. 9 Old Dominion came out of the Southeast. The big surprise though: no. 16 Hampton won four flips in a row to come out of the West region.
Here is the video of the Final Four coin toss results. Check it out to see who came out on top as the Coin Flip Bracket Champion.
