Default March Madness - SF bracketology

BB doesn't seem very high on the radar around here, which is fine with me because it is kind of down my list a bit as well behind the NFL and hockey. However, I do love the Tournament. It might be the best test of true championship metal in all of sports. Anyhow, I am rooting for Pitt, and if no one else starts it first, I might start a thread for specifically their games.

AnyWho, just thought we needed a place to discuss how badly we will all surely do with are brackets.

I went "chalk" (although I hate that term) this year with my picks at ESPN Tournament challenge. Anyone who played our NFL challenge is already signed up with an ESPN account, so all you have to do is imput your picks and click save. Believe me when I say I will be much worse at this.

My final eight are: Louisvillie, Mich St., Uconn, Memphis, Pitt, Nova, UNC and Okla.

Final four: Louisvillie, Pitt, Memphis and UNC.

Finally, I took Pitt over Louisvillie.

I know that's a boring bracket. Surely, there will be upsets, but I'm just not feeling them. Uconn, IMO, is the most likey of the one seeds to lose early. I also think Syracuse has a decent chance to come through to the final eight. Picking Pitt to beat UNC might be a stretch, but I have to go with Pitt because this could be their best chance in my lifetime.

I'll run a Yahoo or CBS Sportsline one. Your pick unless you desire to step yourself.

I filled in 5 brackets on yahoo.

1 just straight top seeds.
1 just popular picks.
1 with carefully crafted upsets (actually read the stats for all the matchups....)
2 with random matchup winners...mostly upsets. (Cleveland State going all the way? )

Why do they have a tournament anyway? It's going to cause the players to miss too much class. Fan bases will have to travel three straight weekends in some cases. It makes the regular season meaningless. It gives a bunch of undeserving bottom feeders a cut of the revenue. Typical let everyone play so they feel good about themselves, PC, redistributive mentality. And it doesn't even get rid of the controversy--just look at St. Mary's/Arizona.

Oh priceless. Good stuff. I think you can puchase the answers to Under Water Fire Prevention course final online for about $20.00.

IMO, what makes this a great tourny is not a lack of controversy, but rather, that even teams that feel snubbed can't honestly say they didn't have their "destiny" (sorry Bob Costas) in their own hands. St. Mary's can claim all they want that they were deserving (and maybe they were), but if they had beaten Gonzaga, and then won their tournament, they couldn't have been denied a spot. Contrast that to NCAA football where a Utah/Boise beat every team in front of them and don't get a chance to win it all.

Oh, I agree 100%. I was mocking the arguments the B(C)S apologists always make.
