Here Are Some Strategies for Winning Our NCAA Tournament Pool

Hi there, and welcome to your daily reminder to sign up for The Sports Section's annual NCAA Tournament Pool. Just like last year, the winner gets a post to write on whatever they'd like — and it's up to you, the reader, to make sure this year's winner isn't, you know, a New York staffer and contributor to the blog. So how to go about that? Well, you could let Nate Silver's calculator guide your decisions. Or follow Slate's advice and play it like a hedge-fund manager, taking some risks and weighing a team's probability of winning against how many people have actually chosen them to win. Or just follow the Daily Beast's lead and make your selections based on academics. Totally your call. Click here to sign up.
