This is the least confident I've been in years...but the last time I was this pessimistic about picks, I finished in the top tenth of a percent nationally, and got every game and contestant from the elite 8 onward correct (13 of the sweet 16). 

The last two years, I have been pretty confident, and was lying dead in a pool of my own blood by Friday of opening weekend. 

I'm afraid my history of success while being pessimistic might cause me to be too confident this year, causing a double secret first round implosion.

i had sd st and have nm st.  i've filled out 4 or 5 brackets and have those 2 12's advancing in all of mine i think.  i have houston losing in the 1st round in one of them.  that's about it.  i don't consider a 10 or 9 winning an upset; they are typically pick em games regardless of what the pre-tourney hoopla says.

my general rules for a bracket:

1-4 seeds win the 1st round...they do lose now and then, but its just so damn hard to predict, and they are more likely to make the final four 4 than lose in round one.

always pick at least 1 or 2 lower seed wins among 5, 6, 7, and 8 seed games in the first round; go with the hot team or the one with the fewest losses.

once you get to the 2nd round and beyond, throw out the upsets by double digit seeds...they happen, but too few and too hard to predict. 

for the sweet 16 you should have mostly 1, 2, 3, and 4 seeds.  with a 5, 6, or 7 mixed in.

elite 8 teams are typically top 4 seeds. 

final 4 teams are typically top 3 seeds.
