WWJTD NCAA bracket group!

It’s March Madness!  On espn.com you can fill out a virtual bracket and join a group to compete against your friends.  There is a group, WWJTD, where Michaelyn and I have entered our brackets (along with a bracket we each filled by flipping a coin).

I hate John Calipari.  Ed Brayton is sensible when he says

I think Kentucky wins it all, then gets stripped of the title in a couple years when we find out that John Calipari is cheating, as always.

I can’t deny Kentucky is a juggernaut this year.  That’s why I have them in the final game…losing to three-seed Florida State!

And I’m sorry, Ed, but Michigan St. is the most overrated #1 seed in history this year.  I’ve got 4 Louisville knocking them out in the Sweet 16.  As for upsets, at least one 12 seed always comes out of the first round.  I really wanted to pick 12 Harvard over 5 Vandy, but I have too much SEC loyalty for that.  I think that’s the most likely 12 seed upset though.  Instead, I went with VCU over Wichita State.  I also have 10 Xavier over 7 Notre Dame and 10 West Virgina over 7 Conzaga, and 13 Montana over overrated 4 Wisconsin.

My Final Four is 1 Kentucky, 4 Louisville, 3 Florida State, and 1 North Carolina, with Florida State knocking off both remaining #1 seeds to take it all.

I’m throwing down the challenge to Ed: pit your bracket against mine by joining the WWJTD group!  Admittedly, I’ve not been following college basketball as much as in the past, but I still think I can top Mr. Brayton!
