Okay kids. I love this time of year so I have already reviewed my bracket and it is time for me to set it on stone. What do I think about this years field of 65? I think that there are a few teams at the top and Cinderella will be dead this year. When I predicted out to my elite 8 I noticed that I am going with Top seeds in most instances. And I think it will be the case.
*Notable first round upsets:
It's hard to call a 9 over 8 an upset but mark it down Northern Iowa will beat UNLV.
#7 Georgia Tech will beat #10 Oklahoma State.
I know its the "sexy" pick right now to take UTEP over Butler, but I will take Butler.
#13 Murray State will beat #4 Vanderbilt.
I like #11 Washington over #6 Marquette.
My elite 8:
My Final Four:
My National Champion:
Kentucky Wildcats over Ohio State 76-67
So I think the 1's and 2's will step out in this one. I don't think there will be many surprises this year. I am sure that I will be eliminated by the Sweet 16 as usual, but there is always fun in playing expert!
