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!
