Have you wondered how to pick your teams for the NCAA tournament. Filip Bondy spent considerable time determining just the right method to pick the winners for your brackets. This story caught my attention because of the second question Bondy asks about American flag patches on the uniforms.
You’ll have to go to the NY Daily News site to get his explanations for each of the questions and how it will give you the insight to pick the winners. If you are looking for a little edge, this will help and the article is quite good too.
Of course, it isn’t always easy deciding which teams are your favorites – especially if you are the typical American brackets filler who has watched exactly three minutes and 23 seconds of college basketball all season.
That is where I come in, your public servant. Here are five things you should be asking yourself about these schools, before you commit pen to straight line:
- Did I ever attend this college?
- Is this school wearing an American flag patch on its uniform?
- Is this school any fun at all?
- Do these players actually go to this college, or any college?
For this article, I don’t want to get into a discussion about applying the flag code, but here is 8(j) for you to think about: Are colleges considered patriotic organizations? You be the judge!
Section 8(j) No part of the flag should ever be used as a costume or athletic uniform. However, a flag patch may be affixed to the uniform of military personnel, firemen, policemen, and members of patriotic organizations.
