Bill Hardgrave, Dean of Auburn University’s College of Business, claims he’s a baller and the man to beat when it comes to 2013 March Madness bracketology.
When asked why he’s staking such a bold claim, Hardgrave’s gives a bold answer: “The reason why I even threw this bracket out there is really, as a Dean, I constantly look for ways to demonstrate my superiority and by having a bracket that really just blows everybody away, it’s just another way for me to do that”.
Hardgrave’s comments are made in good fun. He states on his blog and The Shareholder Online that the Beat the Dean: 2013 March Madness challenge is part of the College of Business’s effort to ramp up visibility, improve digital communications, and get the Auburn student and alumni population engaged in a fun way.
Dean Hardgrave has Louisville, Ohio State, Florida and Miami in the Final Four, with Miami going all the way.
