Madness!

March Madness begins (for real) tomorrow, so time is running out if you haven't filled out your brackets yet. As if anyone in the world could possibly care, I've finally filled mine out and you can see it (if you want), HERE. (After the games begin on Thursday).

Highlights of my picks in this year's Tourney:

  • Notre Dame beats Old Dominion, but loses to a Baylor Bears team that makes a nice run all the way into the Final Four where they lose to West Virginia.
  • #1 seed Duke gets taken out by Texas A&M (game being played in Houston) and thus failing to advance beyond the Sweet Sixteen.
  • Baylor beating #2 seed Villanova in the other South Region semi-final (in Houston) to advance to the Elite Eight match-up versus Texas A&M.
  • #1 seed Kentucky losing to #4 seed Wisconsin in their Sweet Sixteen match-up.

My Elite Eight:
  1. Kansas
  2. Ohio State
  3. Syracuse
  4. Kansas State
  5. Wisconsin
  6. West Virginia
  7. Texas A&M
  8. Baylor

The Final Four:
  1. Kansas
  2. Syracuse
  3. West Virginia
  4. Baylor
I have Kansas defeating West Virgina in the final game to win the National Championship.

You're right about that Anonymous! I just put this stuff up publicly so that IF lightning strikes and I get my picks right I have actual proof. Unlike all the yahoos who will claim that they saw Northern Iowa coming.

oc domer,

I will give you credit for at least putting it out there.
