Put your money on Harvard

A few years ago my friend Tim Layton filled out a March Madness bracket using economics department rankings. He hasn't done it for this year, so I decided to rip off the idea. I follow Tim in using the IDEAS ranking; schools that don't appear in those rankings lose to those that do, and I decide matchups of non-ranked schools using their tournament seed.

Here's the bracket; I did it quickly, so there might be mistakes. Click for a larger image.

I didn't enter this bracket in any pools. Feel free to do so if it's not too late...

UPDATE 3/24: The bracket has 350 points on ESPN, ranking it at 97.8% or #181,205.
UPDATE 3/25: Now the bracket is at 41.7% on ESPN, with 390 points.

  1. Bet you're kicking yourself for not entering this into any pools now that Hahvahd has proved its worth! See also this bracket.
