OK, let’s get down to the important stuff: my NCAA bracket. I am not doing well this year. There have been many upsets this year that I did not anticipate. A 5 seed is always upset by a 12 seed, for example. But this year, there were 11 seeds upsetting 6 seeds — that’s just not normal! I should mention that the way I fill out my bracket has nothing to do with stats or projections or anything rational like that. I choose my teams based on my emotional attachment to them (Wisconsin wins the whole thing in my world), whether or not I like the name of their school (Austin Peay loses because they just don’t have enough consonants in their name) and how I feel at the moment I fill out the bracket. It’s all very scientific. In my head, anyway.
If Wisconsin doesn’t win tonight, it’s over for my bracket, since I have them winning the championship game. And I really need Xavier to pull out all the stops tomorrow night because I have them upsetting UCLA. I know, I know, that’s just crazy. But that’s my bracket. Crazy!
