NCAA bracket on the front?

    If the local interest is strong enough, should a newspaper put the NCCA bracket on the front of Monday's section? Or is that a waste of space?

    Having the bracket in color really doesn't matter, especially since it'll be covered in red by the end of the tournament anyway.

    I've used it on the front before as the main art, with a secondary photo of the local college team. For something different, it worked out fine.

    Design-wise, it's iffy.

    But it's what everyone will be looking for tomorrow.

    I wouldn't think it'd need to be on the front of a section, even a special section geared toward the NCAA Tournament.

    If it's going to be marked up anyway, why waste the money cost to print it in color?

    We're putting it inside on a doubletruck. We sell ads for it every year.

    I'm doing an illustration out front.
  9. That's what I was going to suggest.

    edit to add: People want to print those puppies out - and be able to read them.

    Years ago, we did a doubletruck of the bracket. We got complaints, because it was too big for people to put in the office copier to make brackets for the pools.

    also done this in the past. Only suggestion -- put it on the outside of the page, makes it easier for the yokels to cut out and put on the copy machine. I wish I were joking.

    At a previous stop, the bracket ran as a wrap around the entire paper.
