Let's Go Blue Team!

Forget team names. Make your March Madness picks with Slate's mascot and school color brackets.

Now that the bracket for the 2011 NCAA Tournament  is out, you have just a few days to make your picks and take a run at office-pool glory. But how are you supposed to pick between George Mason and Villanova if you're not an obsessive college basketball watcher? The answer: Slate's alternative NCAA brackets.

Our printable PDF brackets don't include extraneous information like team names and seedings. Instead, we provide you with the bare minimum of information you need to make hasty, uninformed predictions: images of 68 mascots  and 68 sets of school colors. Do you think the hornet has what it takes to win it all, or do you side with one of the many wildcats? Is blue and orange or green and gold the most fearsome color combination?
