Why I should be Mr. Bracket:
College basketball is in my blood and my hair! I was at the 1995 Championship in Seattle. UCLA runs through my family. I live, eat and breathe Bruin sports and I'm always giving my 110%. When I can't talk the day after a game, I know I've done my best. Some guys paint their face or chests, but that washes off. I permanently dye my hair blue for my school. GO BRUINS!

Why I should be Mr. Bracket: I've planned my trip to the tourney games in San Diego and Oakland and already got my tickets to Indianapolis because I know the Bruins are on their way there. My 15 minutes of fame: posing as the 'A' when my buddies and I spelled out, Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, on our chests for the televised West Virginia game. Offense sells tickets, defense wins championships, if you've got both, you must be a Bruin.

Why I should be Mr. Bracket: UCLA is the greatest school in the nation. We won the most NCAA titles and we're basically the sweetest school of them all! Sun, beach, beautiful girls and a GREAT team -- what more can a fan ask for? Sitting in the Bruin Den for each game played in Pauley Pavillion is the most exciting place to be. It's a part of history! Go Bruins … all the way to the Final Four, here we come!

Jason Booker
Age: 22
Hometown: Saratoga, Calif.
Why I should be Mr. Bracket: I'm the most passionate fan because I applied to schools based on sports programs. I had to go to UCLA because the Bruins are the best and Pauley Pavilion is the college basketball mecca. I go to all the games, camp out for tickets and do it up in all blue. I'm lobbying to get my final exam moved so I can go to our first NCAA games and I'll be there in Oakland no matter what.
