Given the bot's lean towards favorites, we tried to convince it to pick this year's Cinderella team.
"Do you have a Cinderella pick to make the Final Four of this year's men's NCAA tournament?" we humbly asked our future overlord.
"A Cinderella pick is a team that is not expected to do well in the tournament but surprises everyone by advancing far," the bot said. "There are many possible candidates for this year's men's NCAA tournament, but here are some of the most popular ones according to various sources."
So far so good.
The bot listed off what have been some popular options for March Madness bracket builders this year: College of Charleston, VCU, Iona, and Drake. But the bot's final pick was Loyola-Chicago.
Chances are you remember Loyola-Chicago from their miraculous run to the Final Four in 2018. But Sister Jean and the Ramblers failed to qualify for the 2023 tournament.
When asked to pick just one Cinderella team, the bot doubled-down.
"My top pick for a Cinderella team is Loyola Chicago," the bot said. "I think they have a great defense and a star player in Cameron Krutwig. They also have the experience and the inspiration from their 2018 run and Sister Jean. I think they could make it to the Elite Eight or even the Final Four if they play well."
The Ramblers went just 10-21 in their 2022-23 season, finishing 15th in the A10 conference. Cameron Krutwig spent the 2022 season playing in Japan.
When the bot was informed of this, it switched its pick.
"Well, since Loyola Chicago is not in the March Madness tournament, I would have to pick another team. I think one of the possible Cinderella teams in the NCAA tournament is Drake. The Bulldogs had an impressive season despite losing their top two scorers to injuries. They have a balanced offense with five players averaging double figures and a stingy defense that ranks ninth in adjusted efficiency. They face No. 5 Miami in the first round and I think they could pull off an upset."
As much as we love a 12-5 upset, it's tough to trust a bot that doesn't have the basics of the bracket down.
