Why He's Doing It: He's in this and 15 other pools as a way to fill the void left by his high school basketball career. (They could've won Districts!)
How He Picks Teams: Based on a 55-point system he developed while skipping a week of work, which combines the analysis of more then 150 experts.
Where He'll Finish in the Standings: Just out of the money. But it's okay he "totally won" every other pool he was in.
Why He's Doing It: Not really a basketball fan, but his alma mater Something Something Directional State at Someplace (there may also have been a "Tech" in there) is in the Tournament for the first time in 50 years!
How He Picks Teams: He's picking the alma mater, the Fightin' Embarrassments, to win it all even though they're so bad they were slotted for the play-in game. The rest of the field will be picked by his cat.
How He'll Finish in the Standings: In second-to-last place but he would have won it all if he hadn't picked his alma mater.

"You have to be able to adapt in the game of basketball," said Krzyzewski. "And things have changed. Winning isn't what it's all about anymore. Today it's more about getting a lot of views and likes on YouTube. I'm not going to stand in the way of these kids' dreams. I mean, Nolan Smith can make a shot from half court through his legs. The world needs to see it."
Krzyzewski said his team's struggles down the stretch losing two of its last three is due to a change in practice habits.
"For the past month we've been spending most of our practice time working on our trick shots," said the coach. "I think it's impressive we've won any games at all. But not as impressive as Kyrie Irving's underhanded bank shot from the scorer's table."
That admission explains why several of Duke's late-game possessions in a loss to North Carolina on Saturday included half-court shots by blind-folded players.
