Description: Interviews and predictions of sports rankings experts, coaches, and mathematicians which take the power of mathematical methods of rating and ranking, and bring them to bear on the NCAA college basketball tournament. Princeton University Press invites visitors to pick their own brackets for March Madness and share them with its ESPN group, then consult the blog for updates on the group's collective performance and the best method for picking the winner. Blog posts, which date back to March, 2011, have described how math is used during tournaments, as detailed in Princeton University Press books such as Mathletics: How Gamblers, Managers, and Sports Enthusiasts Use Mathematics in Baseball, Basketball, and Football, by Wayne Winston, and Amy Langville and Carl Meyer's Who’s #1?
