Welcome to the new Bracketscience!

Those of you who’ve been to Bracketscience in years past may wonder whether you’re in the right place. We’ve changed the look of the site dramatically and made it much friendlier for mobile devices and tablets. But the design isn’t the only thing that’s new.

For one thing, the blog you’re reading is now free to everyone–and smack-dab on the home page. It will also contain much of the content that used to be found under “Feature Articles.” In addition, the rest of the site is more compact. Basically, everything besides the blog now requires a membership to access. The good news is that the member fee will only be $10.

For your sawbuck, you get the Bracketmaster research tool, a gigantic Excel stat sheet on the 68 tourney teams, performance ratings and a load of bracket picking advice. We’re also planning to continue the Great 8 Challenge. The only asset you won’t get that we’ve provided in the past is the 10 bracket models.

The big reason that we’re changing the site is that I’ll be writing more extensively for CBSSports.com this season. Some of the feature articles that used to appear on Bracketscience will now show up on the CBS site. I’ll also be providing three or four of the statistical models in their “Bracket Lab” section. Given everything I’ll have to do during tourney crunch time, something had to come off the plate…and I’ve decided it’s the balance of the stats models. Those wind up taking all night on Selection Sunday and the better part of Monday and Tuesday.

I hope you find the new Bracketscience more accessible on whatever device you’re using, easier to read–and an all-around better deal. Drop me a line and let me know what you think. As always, I love to hear your thoughts.

    Hey Peter! Great blog and looking forward to using this tool throughout this season.

    I was also hoping you could check this out, http://www.Bracketees.com and let us know what you think! We are using group funding to test the market currently but we’re super excited about getting the ball rolling!

    Thanks again!
