Admitted stat geek and college basketball fanatic Andrew Clark has devised a system for filling out your men's basketball tournament brackets in March that requires neither a masters' degree in math nor a 24/7 commitment to the college basketball season in order to make a run at winning your pool. In the last six years, Clark has picked the winner four times on his single "sheet of integrity." Even better, he has picked 14 of the possible 24 final-four teams in those years.

He calls his system Bracketeering, and it consists of simple rules to follow in making your picks for all six rounds of the tournament with information you already have (such as never pick a 15 or 16 seed) and statistics that are easily available on the Internet for free (such as scoring and created-possession margins, fouling and foul-shooting differentials, and possession efficiency). So leave your friends, family, and co-workers in the dust when your bracket is still alive and they are wondering what happened to their sentimental favorites.

It is so much fun to see the principles of sabermetrics being used to pick the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament winner. I don't know if Andrew Clark's "system" works or not, but I'm sure going to try it when I fill out my brackets this year. --John Dewan, author of Stat of the Week and The Fielding Bible: Volumes I and II

Andrew Clark writes from a fan's perspective while offering expert advice. So spread everything out on the kitchen table, but don't make a pick until you read Bracketeering. --Larry Johnson, host of "Mustard and Johnson" in WEEI in Boston

Throw out the tea leaves; put down the darts. You're in good hands. Even a neophyte can make sense of picking brackets with Andrew Clark's clear and concise guidance. And even if you never intend to pick up a pencil or consult a computer, you'll still enjoy reading Bracketeering. --Bonnie Bryant, author of The Saddle Club series
