Ok I know, the idea of "bracketology" is not the same with curling as it is with the #MarchMadness NCAA basketball tournament. And yes, I realize most tour events throughout the year employ a similar triple knockout bracket structure. To that I say....stop killing my buzz and lets just enjoy the one slam event with a completely different format (ie: no pool play/round robin/tie breaker drama) alright?
We can do some seed projection, which can be interesting since technically there are no "seeds" and a speculated #1 might be facing a speculated #2 or #3 in the opening round. But that can be fun as well! We can discuss quadrant favourites. We can identify #BracketBusters. What's not to love here?
