Note: ESPN's Joe Lunardi assigned a team of Bracketologists to put together Insider's Tournament Tips, offering historical analysis of the bracket and in-depth breakdowns on all 68 tournament teams to help you make smart picks.

Lunardi's Logic

The Jayhawks are my title pick for two reasons: 1) top to bottom, they have the most talent in college basketball; and 2) they figure to be playing with a big-time chip on the shoulder after last year's early knockout. In a year of chalk, why not Rock Chalk?

Once the action starts, follow all the games on your desktop with our discreet RealTime Scoreboard.
