Where to start your NCAA pool

Mashable.com recently evaluated six sites for tracking your NCAA bracket:

1. ESPN Tournament Challenge: Fill out up to 10 brackets. Android and iPhone apps available. Mashable: "The scale of ESPN's operation can be a bit daunting to those who just want to play with 10 other people. If you get involved, you're involved with the whole program."

2. CBS Sports Bracket Manager: You can play just within your group. Lacks mobile app. Mashable: "You can customize your group's page with a personalized name and abbreviation, and inviting people is as simple as giving them the group password to access the bracket page."

3. NBC Sports Bracket Madness: Offers private group options and accommodates solo players within the total pool of players. Lacks a mobile app. Mashable: "NBC Sports Bracket integrates a little bit of everything to attract all kinds of March Madness players."

4. NCAA Bracket Challenge: Allows access to your brackets via online streaming platform. Mashable: "With a layered system much closer to ESPN's Tournament Challenge, you can actually join any public group available with your entries."

6. Fox Sports Bracket Challenge: Good for solo player; $1 million for perfect bracket. No social media, mobile apps. Mashable: "Another great feature is the bracket simulator, which gives players a statistically-driven playthrough of the tournament to analyze chances of winning."

5. Yahoo Tourney Pick'em: Perfect bracket could win $5 million. Mashable: "Yahoo's shortcomings are rooted in its Fantasy system — while the prizes are excellent, it's simply better to be in a group where there's a dedicated commissioner rather than going solo."
