March madness has arrived! Conference tournaments are either recently completed or in full swing. Selection Monday is around the corner.

That also means it is time for the fifth annual Dishin & Swishin bracketology podcast, with ESPN’s women’s basketball bracket expert Charlie Creme. This year, with his social media presence on full blast and ESPN’s family of television and Internet broadcasts covering so many games, Creme is easy to find.

What is hard to find, however, is more than a two minute halftime blurb or a  tweet!

Well, each year Dishin & Swishin brings Charlie Creme on to expound on his brackets, the processes he undertakes, what goes into trying to predict the NCAA tournament each year, and more. It is always enjoyable and educational, with some great information disseminated and points of interest debated.

On today’s podcast some of the topics covered include:

  • S-Curve vs. Geography, which trumps the other
  • Stockton regional, and the west coast “problem” when there is no west coast one seed
  • Lower seed teams hosting regional games against higher seeds
  • Splitting conference and previous opponents played, and the problem with Marquette hosting Stanford
  • Our new and improved plan for handling first and second round tickets earlier than currently handled

If figuring out how the NCAA selection committee does their job is your bag, then this podcast is for you. 

Enjoy, and hopefully all your favorite teams get bids and seeds you like!
