Humiliation is good for the soul. I have just uploaded my bracket.
Here are my first round upsets.
13 New Mexico State over 4 Indiana
12 Long Beach State over 5 New Mexico
14 Belmont over 3 Georgetown
11 NC State over 6 San Diego State
The Sweet Sixteen: Kentucky, Wichita State, Baylor, Duke, Michigan State, Louisville, Marquette, Missouri, Kansas State (!), Wisconsin, Florida State, Ohio State, North Carolina, Temple, North Carolina State and Kansas.
The Elite Eight: Wisconsin, Florida State, Ohio State, North Carolina, Kansas, Missouri, Michigan State, Baylor, Kentucky
The Final Four: Wisconsin, North Carolina, Kentucky, Missouri, Kentucky.
Kentucky over North Carolina on Monday night.
Here's where I'm sure to be wrong.
Wisconsin doesn't have the firepower to get that far. But I think it comes down to the Vanderbilt game. Syracuse is going out early. The winner of UW-Vanderbilt takes the bracket. (I'd like to see Harvard make a run but it won't happen.) I've decided that it's just still our time. (Hey, Lunardi has them there too.)
I'm betting against Tom Izzo. Probably a mistake.
Kentucky may just be too young.
I am not confident that Marquette makes the Sixteen. I think they are only a slight favorite over Murray State and could even lose to BYU today.
