Hi All, 

Just wondering if anyone has creative ideas about how to present the
NCAA tournament bracket in a way that's maximally accessible and
universally usable.

The official version is available in PDF...

The brackets have clear structure. There are multiple levels (first
round, second round, regional semifinals, regional finals, national
semifinals, and national championship); and four distinct regions,
defined by the city in which the regionals are played (Chicago,
Albuquerque, Syracuse, and Austin). But how can we utilize that
structure to present a bracket that works well for all users? 

Thanks for any ideas!
