Read more from Slate’s coverage of the NCAA tournament.
The 2013 NCAA Tournament bracket is overloaded with information. Who are all these teams? What are all these seeds? How is anyone supposed to know enough to pick this many games?
With Slate’s printable team-color and mascot brackets, all of that March Madness anxiety will melt away. Our PDF brackets have culled out all of the superfluous information and reduced the tournament to what matters most: colors and logos. Have a hunch that those ferocious jaguars from parts unknown are going all the way this year? Feel compelled to bet it all on black? With these brackets, you can turn your hunches into reality. (One methodological note: The mascot brackets include some mascots and some school logos, some that are current and some that might be slightly out of date. Basically, whatever we thought would look the best on a printout that you’d hang in your cubicle.)
