It is every college basketball fan's favorite time of the year. Conference tournaments are beginning to wrap up and the field of 68 teams is starting to become clearer and clearer. Selection Sunday is just a few days away and once those 68 teams are revealed there will be thousands if not millions of brackets created.

Now there are two types of people when it comes to picking a bracket, the one who knows college basketball and the one who does not. The one who knows college basketball typically picks their bracket looking at wins and losses, stats on the season, and rankings within conferences and national rankings.

Those who do not know college basketball will pick the teams with the hottest guys on their roster. Yes, you just read that, and no I am not kidding.

So this got me thinking, what are some of the most unconventional ways someone can pick a bracket? Well, lucky for you, I have the top five I could come up with. So if you don't know a lot about college basketball, or anything at all and the sports fanatics in your family forced you into a bracket challenge, here are some ways you can pick your bracket.

#5: Flipping a coin

Do I pick the one-seed or the 16-seed? This is a question you might be asking yourself if you don't recognize any of the teams in the bracket. Well, this is a good and easy way to pick your teams without the stress of figuring everything out.

You can leave everything to chance and let lady luck decide who will win each game. Maybe you can pick an upset and not even know it. However, if you somehow have every lower seed winning every game, you may want to try flipping again.
